Work with Andrea…
YOUR KICK-ASS LIFE
With you as my client, there isn’t one coaching approach I use. You are a unique human. I ask you questions, listen, and meet you where you are.
Ultimately, when we work together, you lead the dance.
That’s where you light a fire in your life that changes everything. I just point you to the match and accelerator and make sure you light it up.
Will you be your own fire starter?
(Know you’re ready? You can apply HERE.)
Because when you’re in your 80’s or 90’s and you look back on this decade, what stories do you want to tell?
Do you want to list your regrets about not going after the things you longed for? Or that you allowed situations and people to stay in your life you really didn’t want? Or that you tolerated people treating you in ways that you loathed and resented?
Do you want to tell stories about someone you knew who had the courage to jump when she felt the pull to do so, secretly wishing the story was about you?
Because I can guarantee you ONE thing out of this life. You’re going to die. We all are. Yes, that might feel intense, but that’s literally my job– to confront you with the fact that time is FINITE.
You’re going to die whether you live the life you want or not, whether you do the things that scare you or not, whether you honor your wants and needs or not. And hopefully your life is long and healthy, so you get the gift of opportunity to live the shit out of your one, precious life.
You will always be the one to bring the areas of primary focus to work on, however, without fail, there are three areas that come up over and over again with my clients.
1. Boundaries, hard conversations, and asking for what you want and need*. This can be at work and/or your personal life. I’ll teach you how to do this (scripts, if you need them), make a plan with you to do it, and hold you accountable.
You’ll learn the process of these conversations, develop your unique language around them, and we’ll dig into why you’ve been avoiding this. All so that not only can you have the conversations and feel proud of how you show up, but have the self-awareness so this new habit sticks.
2. Strengthening your relationships (and sometimes letting some of them go). Your happiness and fulfillment depends on this. Let’s figure out how to make you happier in regard to these key relationships.
We’ll co-create the steps to take to get this over time. Plus, you'll gain tools and form habits to maintain this over time, long after we’re finished working together so you can continue this.
3. Getting clear on how YOU want to live YOUR life; and create the steps to get there. What’s missing in your life? What do you want more of? If you can’t answer these, you probably know what you want less of, so we’ll start there.
After that, there are some variations in regard to topics, so you bring your specific areas of focus, and we’ll go from there.
we'll figure out what might be keeping you stuck, and i'll hold you accountable for taking the steps necessary to complete your goals.
Make a big decision about something– leaving a job, a relationship, starting a business, etc.
Build confidence by way of learning healthy coping mechanisms, setting boundaries, overcoming people-pleasing, and listening to your inner-wisdom.
(*Generally speaking, women have been raised in a culture to not ask for what they want/need, and to put everyone else’s comfort and wants before their own. Therefore, boundaries and hard conversations can feel intense, like an impossible task, they never happen and then resentment sets in. This will stop.)

Crucial tools I learned from coaching with her: pattern interrupter for any negative thoughts I have, small ‘No’s’ to start building this muscle, understanding the term ‘letting it land’ when having hard conversations, and having a written practice to calm my nervous system and thoughts.
I also loved how Andrea put words and language to certain feelings and thought patterns I had, as well as provided insight as to where some of these thoughts came from. This different perspective was incredibly helpful and empowering. I understand how to catch these patterns and choose different thoughts while having grace for myself.
I have always been curious about coaching and knew I needed the extra push out of my comfort zone. I wanted to invest in myself and am so glad I did. I would highly recommend Andrea to anyone who struggles to set boundaries or have tough conversations, is too hard on themselves, and wants to gain tools and insights on these things and more.

who are you?
My clients tend to be women (I do coach some men) who on paper and to others have it all figured out. They’re successful in most areas of their life, at least to others. They’re mostly happy.
But, they are…
They find themselves in moments of discomfort or anger when they want to say no, but can’t or won’t. And they don’t know where to even start saying no if they had the courage to do it.
They feel resentful to others for crossing their boundaries, even though the boundaries have never been said out loud, or if they have, the boundary wasn’t clear or firm.
They may find themselves thinking “Is this all there is?” or some version of that. Or feeling like there is something more they thought they would have by now.
WHAT YOU’LL GET
Here’s what I can promise you.
You’ll get my undivided commitment, support, and expertise. I will help you paint the picture of what your life can look like based on what results you want. I will ALWAYS hold a mirror up to show you what you’re capable of, but at the same time hold space for where you might feel afraid to go for it. But, I won’t let that stop you.
You’ll get tried and true strategies, processes, exercises, resources, and tactics to change your life in the direction you want to go. Coaching will entail me asking you lots of questions, listening to my intuition about what you might not be saying out loud, and asking you about that. It also will show you multiple perspectives, challenge your stuck beliefs, and push your perceived limits.
If you do what you commit to doing, I guarantee your life will change for the better. I promise you’ll walk away with new ways to take action on hard things, new ways to cope with life’s shitstorms, and new ways of thinking. The goal is that you'll learn new ways of behaving, reacting, and living that will serve you long after we're done working together.
Coaches can never guarantee specific results because you are in charge of doing the work. But, if you’ve read this far, my hunch is that you’re ready.

I had worked with coaches before on a lot of BEING stuff and sought out Andrea to help me with some DOING and BEING pieces. I was saying yes to a lot of things that weren’t a “hell yes” and I’m not saying NO to way more things that aren’t serving me!
Now I am staying true to what is a HELL YES for me and finding more time to nurture me. I love that Andrea calls me out on my b.s. and doesn’t let things slide. She is loving and FIERCE.
What has specifically improved is that I’m now saying NO to time commitments with my part time job that weren’t bringing me joy. Listening to the voice inside that knows that we only get once life and it’s my job to live in my authenticity. To acknowledge my gremlins, bring them into the light so I can let them have their say and that way my gremlins don’t have to run the show and fill my head with nonsense!

Through intensive coaching sessions, Andrea helped me work though my self-doubts and make concrete plans (what Andrea calls “homework!”) in order to reach my goals. Now, I am well-equipped with tricks to conquer the limitations I used to put on myself, and I have a whole new outlook on how to set my goals and see them through.
My favorite part about coaching was gaining a friend in Andrea. Not only is Andrea someone who I can celebrate my highs with, but she is there for me when I need encouragement and advice. The vision I have for my future improved because of working with Andrea, and the most useful thing I learned is to always (always, always, always!) ignore my gremlin.
Our calls will be 50 minutes in length and most of the weeks require homework that will take you about an additional hour (give or take). We do recommend setting aside some time for reflection.
What am I actually paying for?
I do not charge by the session, but for the whole package; our entire relationship as client/coach. I have extensive experience, and a stellar reputation in the coaching industry, dating back to 2007.
Our time together on Zoom is just part of that package, you also invest in for tools and strategies I will teach you, resources you need, accountability in between sessions, and access to me when you need it. My private clients get the highest level of commitment.
What is the investment?
Packages are $5,000-$10,000.
Women who are go-getters but who also feel stuck.
They know they were meant for more, but they might not be sure what that is. They’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, they feel time is slipping away, and they can’t bear to live the next few decades the same as it’s always been.
They typically have kicked ass in their careers and in some ways that has been their measure of worth– and they know their lives are more than their job.
This is my perfect client and where magic happens– when women can see the glimmer of WHO they can be, but they don’t know how to get there. That’s where I come in to help.
Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 9 am to 5 pm eastern time. On occasion, I can do a Monday afternoon as well. Sorry, no weekends or evenings.
At this time, the only way to work with me is privately. Group programs may come back. Sign up for updates or listen to the podcast to be notified.
How do I sign up for one of these packages?
Simply fill out this application and we’ll get back to you shortly.

After a few months with Andrea I felt what I call ‘an awakening’ and total transformation. I got clarity around what was truly important to me and even started a new business—one that I am VERY passionate about and fits perfectly with my values.
I loved Andrea’s willingness to challenge me out of my comfort zone, not putting up with any BS excuses, as well as hold me accountable for the things I had committed to. She was just what I needed in a perfect time in my life. Thank you, Andrea, for holding my hand when I was ready to jump…and giving me a push when I needed it.

I wanted to work with Andrea to realize what was meaningful in my life so that I could concentrate on just those “important to me” activities. She helped me dive into my values and really see what was crucial, both in my life and in my business. She even came up with my mantra for the year, “The Season of Sue. Thanks, Andrea!
