You Know You’re Meant For More:

You’ve scaled the professional ladder, with goals achieved and ambitions realized (well done!!). And yet, in this seemingly picture-perfect existence, there’s something missing. The buzz from accomplishments quickly fades, and you’re left feeling empty, searching for contentment. Your inner spark has dimmed to a moody light. While a voice keeps whispering, “Is this really all there is?”

The role you’ve crafted to perfection over the years now feels like a costume—that’s become too tight. A sense of suffocation and stuckness. The thought of spending another five years, or even another day, stuck in this ill-fitting costume makes your heart sink and your brain disassociate.

It’s not just uncomfortable – it’s a sentence to a life half-lived.

It’s time to create a shift and get your spark back.

My Coaching: A Path to More Aliveness

My coaching is a beacon for those who stand at this crossroad, successful yet seeking more—more depth, more fulfillment, more color. I specialize in guiding individuals like you, who have mastered the art of achieving but find themselves longing for a deeper connection to their true essence and purpose.

At the core of my methodology is a deep, unwavering focus on YOU – the individual behind the title. By exploring the layers of your personality, your aspirations, and even your unspoken dreams, I craft a coaching experience that is profoundly personal and immensely impactful.

I have supported many successful over-achievers on their journey to rekindle their spark, including CEOs, founders, partners, and NGO executives.

Who Finds Their Spark Here?

You are an ideal fit for this journey if you’re someone who recognizes your external success hasn’t delivered everything you hoped it would. You are now driven to explore and understand the vastness of your inner self. You’re not just seeking answers; you’re ready to question the very foundation of your beliefs and redefine what fulfillment means on your terms. You are not willing to continue a life half-lived, waiting passively for your life to “begin”. You’re ready to start taking off the costume, to see what’s underneath.

Rekindling Your Colorful Spark

With me as your guide, supporting you every step of the way, you will:

  • Shed the Costume: Together, we will strip away the layers of expectation and achievement that no longer serve you, clearing the clutter to reveal the authentic YOU beneath.
  • Reconnect with Your Inner Voice: Learn to listen to and trust the deepest parts of yourself, tap into your intuition, and uncover what truly brings you joy and fulfillment.
  • Figure Out What You Really Want: Discover what true satisfaction looks and feels like for you, and begin to align your life with these newfound values.
  • Identify and Reprogram Destructive Beliefs: We’ll uncover the beliefs in your “internal operating system.” Dive into how these beliefs have been influencing the way you show up in the world, and reprogram them to support your journey forward.
  • Stepping Into Balance: Finding a sustainable rhythm for the holistic you (work + life) where you thrive. Learning to identify what brings you alive and what sucks your soul, so you can move toward aliveness with intention.
  • Discover Your Spark: Uncover the vibrant, rich colors of a life lived with purpose and passion, moving beyond the black-and-white existence of mere success and outside the lifeless grasp of autopilot.

Two Ways to Kickstart Your Transformation

1) Dip Your Brush: A Single-Session Insight

Sometimes, all it takes is a single stroke of insight to shift your perspective and illuminate your path. This is exactly what the Single-Session Insight offers—a focused, conversation designed to tackle a specific question or challenge you’re facing. Think of it as selecting one color from your box of crayons to explore deeply, understanding its nuances and how it fits into the bigger picture of your life.

What to Expect:

  • Targeted Insight: We dive straight into the heart of your chosen issue, bringing clarity and fresh perspective.
  • Actionable Steps: Leave the session with grounding, questions to explore more deeply, and steps you can immediately implement to address your challenge.
  • Cost: $250 for a one-hour or $350 for a 1.5 hour session targeted shift.

This session is perfect for those seeking a quick, impactful change or needing immediate clarity on a pressing matter. It’s a glimpse into what deeper coaching can offer, allowing you to experience the value of introspection and guided discovery in a condensed format.

2) The Sparkler: A Four-Month Transformation

The Sparkler coaching journey is not a passive experience but an active exploration into the depths of who you are and who you wish to become. I call this “soul spelunking” to find your spark. Over four months, we will work together to peel back the layers of your current existence, and with curiosity and compassion, we’ll dive into the deep vastness of you. The path to uncovering (or rediscovering!) the vibrant hues of YOU requires a willingness to explore your deepest depths. Bringing what’s been waiting to be seen into the light.

Are you ready to meet – and embrace – your spark?

Hi, I’m Kathy

I’ve been exactly where you are right now. Chasing after every goal, ticking off every box on my life’s checklist. I have bar tended in Australia, served coffee in the UK, made rugs and taught kickboxing in Morocco, gutted fish in Alaska, created sportswear strategy in Germany, and developed new beers in middle America. I got my MBA from Georgetown University, graduating with honors, and then scaled the corporate ladder, working in top companies: Microsoft, MillerCoors, adidas…

Only to realize that the rush of “I’ve made it” just didn’t stick around.

Seriously, the buzz from landing that next promotion? Gone faster than a good Netflix binge. It got me thinking hard about what really fuels my happiness and why some parts of my life felt like they were in grayscale rather than HD.

I started asking myself the tough questions about what I truly wanted, how I wanted to show up in life, and how I wanted to feel. I shook things up, ditched those old “truths,” and started rediscovering who I really am. It’s been a game-changer. Now, I’m here to help you do the same. If any of this rings a bell, I’m here to help – like a GPS for navigating out of the funk and into a vibrant life we all deserve.

Want a mini shift?

Check out The Unfolding Podcast. Each episode shares one perspective – in 3 to 20 minutes (108 episodes in season 1!). One perspective at a time, we pull back layers of conditioning to find the truth underneath. A change in perspective has the power to change everything. If you feel stuck, if the boxes no longer fit, it might be time to try on a new perspective. This is the art of unfolding into the fullest expression of you. Your vastness is waiting. Pull up a seat, the journey is now.

*A Note For The Coaching Curious And The Skeptics*

If the world of coaching feels like uncharted territory, or if you’re carrying a healthy dose of skepticism about what coaching can do for you, you’re not alone.

Many have stood where you are, wondering if peeling back the layers with a coach is the answer they’ve been searching for or just another buzzword in a world drowning with them.

My coaching isn’t about providing all the answers; it’s about discovering the right questions that lead you to your own insights and breakthroughs. Think of it as upgrading your internal navigation system. It’s for those who are ready to take the helm of their own ship, perhaps for the first time. To chart a course to a more fulfilling horizon. It’s a partnership that respects your uniqueness and builds on your strengths, helping you to see beyond the fog of routine and rediscover the vibrant colors of life that are waiting for you.
