Helping You Achieve Your Vision of Success

Unlock Your Personal Power. Say Hello to THE REAL YOU

In my practice, I’ve developed a 5 P’s approach to help you embrace your unique you, showing up in the world as the person you want to be. In every session, I explore your goals with the 5 Pillars of Personhood℠ in mind:

Perception: What do you see?

Perspective: How do you see it?

Priority: What importance/time are you assigning it?

Purpose: What intention do you ascribe to it?

Practice: How do your daily actions support it?

Achieve Your Goals

Coaching takes goal setting to the next level. Working towards achieving the larger benchmarks that define your dreams, we concentrate on what you can do within the space of 1 hour to make progress today.  You’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish in just 15 minutes.

Strengthen Your Relationships

 Communications is the bedrock of relationships. Self-reflection is the act of communicating with one’s self. Through collaborative self-reflection, you can nurture your connection with yourself and strengthen your relationships with everyone else.

Manage Your Distress

Stress is a normal, useful response to life; it’s the survival mechanism that helps us grow, learn and succeed. Distress is the negative impact of prolonged, severe, and unmanaged stress.  Together we will co-create tools to abate and dispel your distress while capitalizing on good stress.

Craft Your Career

Taking a 5Ps approach to career planning, together we can understand how you see your career today, what you’d like to see in the future, prioritize your next career steps, ensure they are aligned with your professional and personal purpose, and put into practice the tools and behaviors to get you to that next level.

My Coaching Philosophy

As a Goal Imagery™ Certified Holistic Coach, I hold the belief that you are whole, creative, and resourceful. As such, you are capable of

  • understanding your own drives and motivations
  • defining your own dreams and goals, and
  • walking your path to personal success and fulfillment.

You are the captain of your own ship. You may not be able to dictate life’s current or waves. But, you can set your destination, chart your course, and steer in the right direction for you. You can also course correct as necessary along the route, with the full prerogative to change your mind along the way. Building a solid frame based on the Pillars of Personhood℠, together we will ensure that your ship is seaworthy and ready to handle any wave.

Pillars of Personhood

Coaching is a goal-oriented practice. We explore your past and present to identify the goals that will get you toward the future you want. In addressing specific goals, all sessions involve a comprehensive process that may explore all areas of your life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education and recreation. This is the hallmark of a holistic approach that is concerned with the totality of your personhood.

Career Design

Taking a broader view of your career, we can explore where you are now, where you would like to be in the future, and what it will take to get there. We might explore questions like:

  • What makes your professional heart sing?
  • How do you want to show up as a professional?
  • What role do you want your career to play in your life?

In a process directed by you, we can uncover your motivations, goals and desires to identify clear steps that you can take toward the professional life you want.


Every aspect of life is influenced by relationships–our relationship with ourselves and with all of the people around us. Personal and professional, local and global, we can explore what your relationships mean to you, how they show up in your life, and what you want from them.

Health and Wellness

Providing support and a platform for accountability, coaching can help you:

  • identify your health and wellness goals
  • recognize any obstacles between you and those goals
  • brainstorm useful solutions for overcoming the obstacles, and
  • bring resources and tools into focus to help you stay on track.
Business Building

The challenges of 21st Century life have opened many doors for new business ventures. The ideas are plentiful. Coaching can help you successfully make the leap from idea to viable business. Holding a nonjudgmental, supportive space to dream bigger and play with ideas and options, the coaching process can reveal the patiently waiting opportunity in perceived obstacles.

Life Balance

There is no such thing as time management or work/life balance. There’s only the priorities you set and the process by which you manage them. It is a basic truth that time is a nonrenewable resource, so what we choose to spend that time on by nature makes it a priority. Approaching the act of prioritization purposely through the prism of your values can help you reclaim your time and allocate it to what really matters to you.

And so much more...

The areas of your life that can be explored are limited only by our imagination. Activating your resourcefulness, creativity and wholeness can open space for opportunities that we cannot currently imagine. It would be my honor to partner with you on the journey.

What Is Life Coaching?

The International Coach Federation (ICF) “defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” The coaching process is directed and driven by the client; the coach is a collaborative partner who actively listens and contributes reflection, powerful questions, and resources.

What does a Coach do?

A coach creates and holds a safe, nonjudgmental, confidential space for you to identify, express and clarify your goals, as well as define and structure action steps to achieve them. As a support system, a coach will help you explore your values, beliefs and character to help you more fully understand and contextualize yourself in all of your life experiences.

Kate has coached me through my job search. I had a lot of anxiety and she just would make a couple of poignant statements and quickly made me believe in myself and those fears were diminished.”
~ Eleanora Sottilaro

“Through working with Kate I gained confidence in my path and was able to narrow down a career path that aligned with my values at this moment in my life. Her sessions reassured me that I have the knowledge and power inside of me. It’s a matter of asking the right questions and being honest with yourself which she helps draws out of you. After working with Kate I was able to land a dream job in a field that I often overlooked yet happens to be the perfect match for me. ”

I grew up with the 10 Commandments as the foundation of my moral and ethic compass. But I'll tell you the truth, they were such a bummer. All of the "thou shalt not"s left me feeling boxed in and wrong at every turn. As my coach training has deepened and grown I started thinking... what would the 10 commandements look like if they were all about the positive things you could do, instead of all the negative stuff we shouldn't do?
