We’ve all had moments of inspiration, sometimes making immediate changes, but often when these changes are not rooted to deep commitment, they can be short-lived...

Discovery Package

To make more substantive changes in your life, I offer sustained coaching support to help you expand your possibilities, take action, hold yourself accountable, and integrate your learning.

Coaching is a dynamic relationship. In order to establish the relationship and to get enough momentum to make significant shifts happen, the initial process requires a three-month commitment. 

This discovery package includes:

  • a two-hour discovery session;

  • two hours of live (in person or by phone) coaching per month for three months, and

  • email or text support in between sessions.

The cost for this three-month commitment is $600. 

If you wish to continue coaching after that, the cost is $150/month (two hours per month) or $80/hour for individual sessions.

Coaching is generally done by phone, but if you would prefer to meet in person, we can meet onboard Althea (Greek word for “healing”), my floating 35-foot sailboat office in Cascade Locks, Oregon (a forty-five minute drive from Portland and twenty minute drive from Hood River).

CultivatE Your Wild Garden
Seasonal Package

Are you craving a deeper connection with nature, both wild and cultivated? Do you want more time in nature to restore and energize your mind, body, and spirit?  The writer Richard Louv coined the term “nature deficit disorder,” an ailment many children and adults are afflicted with because of our hyper-focus and reliance on technology.  

For those afflicted with this modern ailment, I offer coaching and tools to help you reconnect with nature whether it be in your backyard or in the wild.  I will support you in creating intentional space in your life for more time in nature.  As an OSU Master Gardener, I can also offer guidance to help you create a backyard sanctuary or to grow and harvest your own fruits and veggies at home. As with my standard package, I can coach by phone where you can be in your yard or out in a natural area closer to home.  If you're local, we can meet on Althea (my floating sailboat office), my Central Gorge learning garden, or in a local outdoor location.

This seasonal package includes:

  • a two-hour on-site discovery session on Althea, my sailboat office on the Columbia River;

  • four hours of life and nature/garden coaching per month for three months.  Outdoor coaching locations will vary, depending on your needs (garden coaching can take place in my Cascade Locks learning garden and/or your garden site if local); and

  • email or text support in between sessions.

The cost for this three-month commitment is $1,050. 

If you wish to continue coaching after that, the cost is $150/month (two hours) or $80/hour for individual sessions.


“How we are to listen to our lives is a question worth exploring... The soul is like a wild animal—tough, resilient, savvy, self-sufficient, and yet exceedingly shy.  If we want to see a wild animal, the last thing we should do is to go crashing through the woods, shouting for the creature to come out.  But if we are willing to walk quietly into the woods and sit silently for an hour or two at the base of a tree, the creature we are waiting for may well emerge, and out of the corner of an eye we will catch a glimpse of the precious wildness we seek.”

--from Parker Palmer’s Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation
