1:1 Coaching

I specialize in sustainable and well-being-oriented productivity. Through 1:1 Coaching, I help clients achieve complex and long-term goals while prioritizing rest and self-care practices.

1:1 Coaching Is Great for…

  • Graduate students who are eager for new solutions, including PhD students trying to complete their dissertations.
  • Professors who are navigating competing professional priorities while living a nourishing life.
  • Creatives and business owners who want to make overflowing to-do lists more manageable so they can accomplish long-term goals.
  • People who live with chronic health issues that affect their access to traditional performances of productivity. I’m passionate about helping clients develop accessible practices to achieve their goals without overwhelming or overtaxing themselves.

What’s Included?

1. Monthly Coaching Calls

These 60-minute coaching calls are where we break your overlapping projects and goals down into task lists, determine which tasks take priority, and develop a plan for you to accomplish these tasks over the next month. I take special care to ensure that your personal goals, self-care, and rest practices are included in our plans and to-do lists. Options are available for 1 or 2 coaching calls per month.

2. Detailed Session Notes with To-Do Lists

I take notes during our call and synthesize them into confidential and detailed coaching notes that I will share within 48 hours. These notes include actionable to-do lists, details about your projects and goals, and deadlines we will generate together on our calls. 

3. Weekly Accountability Check-ins

I check in via email every Monday to inquire into your progress and plans for that week. I’ll ask you to share updates via email, audio, or video message. The benefits of weekly check-ins are that you do not need to wait a whole month to report back and we can navigate potential obstacles or shifts in your approach every week we work together.

4. Additional Support via Email

In addition to responding to my weekly check-in emails, I welcome my coaching clients to reach out anytime during our time together with questions and updates so I can offer personalized support between our coaching calls.

I had been following Kate throughout her time as a PhD student, and got so much inspiration from her work as I went through my own journey as a PhD student. When I got my postdoc, I knew one of the first things I wanted to do was use my research funds to invest in her coaching. Grad school left me jaded, exhausted, broken and frustrated. I knew there had to be a different way, and I wanted to take the time to explore this possibility with Kate’s business. I did 6 sessions with Kate, and they were so important for my career. I am a mom and at the time, was pregnant with my third child. I was extremely nervous about this new transition, and wanted to really explore what a work/life balance could look like for me. I also wanted to learn different ways to work in a more effective manner to prevent more burnout from occurring. Not only did Kate help me work through questions I had about project management, but she also helped me think through my relationship to work and success. For the longest, I knew that the way I was working, was not working. But so much of the way that I worked was passed down to me by so many academics who just repeated the cycle that had been passed down to them. I didn’t want to do that. I feel confident that I’ll be able to take the tools I learned from her, both professionally and personally, to shape my life and career into something that I can be proud of!
