Two months ago, I realized my depression had to end, so I looked to Colleen for guidance in both my personal and professional life. Since day one, Colleen's sessions have been non-invasive, with questions that carried me into finding the pit of my emotions, negativity and fear on my own. But even when I was lost for words, Colleen led me to answers because of her ability to open up my perceptions and perspectives. Two months ago, I did not feel happy. I did not like who I was. Now, after adopting new mindsets and working toward goals that Colleen helped me with, I realized that I am worthy of happiness, and that happiness was with me all along. I like who I am now, and I'm excited to continue growing. Great thanks to Colleen for this shift to a brighter life.Jul 15, 2016
Colleen is one of the most brilliant, compassionate, and invested coaches I've ever encountered!! Her way of thinking and tackling issues is truly amazing. There are no limits to her awesomeness. She is very generous with her devotion to her clients and genuinely invested in their journey. After just one session I have already started noticing changes in my life and the way I think. And there is nothing more amazing than a change of perception from fear to love, hope and excitement. She rocks and I wouldn't go with anyone else but her! Lots of LOVE and ever grateful!

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I work on a sliding scale from $75-125/hr, depending on income. This is significantly lower than the median cost of coaching, which - in New York City, where I live - is $500/hour. I have priced myself low intentionally, as I value working with people who are brave enough to risk living outside the traditional paths. We have an amazing new economy that supports freelance, creative, and entrepreneurial work - but that doesn't mean it's easy, or that you're going to rake in the dough right of the bat. I want to be available to these individuals, both at the beginning and throughout their journeys.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I discovered coaching in 2014, while on sabbatical from my position as partner in a boutique branding agency in New York City, and I've been discovering, growing, and working in the field ever since. My approach is a unique combination of who I am as an individual and the brain-based coaching method which I've studied through New York University and the NeuroLeadership Institute.
- What types of customers have you worked with?My particular passion is supporting people who have made (or are ready to make) the brave decision to define their own journeys - both as professionals and as humans in the world. Frequently, this means I'm working with creatives - designers, architects, and opera singers are all in my roster. It always means I'm working with creative thinkers, to my great joy. I work with creative thinkers like you for a reason - and it's not only because your minds and imaginations are the real magic that fuels me day by day. I've also walked in your shoes. As a classically trained opera singer who taught herself graphic design before joining the branding agency mentioned above, I understand the courage and stamina it takes to define your own journey. I ALSO KNOW WHY IT'S WORTH IT.
