I coach from a place of bright guiding light, with warmth and intensity, revealing what you crave for, encouraging your inner light to shine brightly."


Stella Maris translates in Latin to "star of the sea". It is a guiding light that illuminates your way.


"When we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work. And when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey"

-Wendell Berry

How I Work

I get to know my clients by having an initial conversation. If we decide we want to work together I ask my clients to sign up for either a three or six-month contract.

We focus on whatever is important to you. Sometimes clients have very specific agendas. Sometimes they do not. Generally, in just a few coaching sessions we identify what track you would like to be on, and all the important facets of your professional, and/or personal life that need to be taken into account for you to achieve the desired outcome. I use experiential coaching and visualization techniques to identify alternative paths and help you learn what you need to start taking steps towards your goals.


One of the key benefits of coaching is the structure of the ongoing relationship. It provides support to help clients stay on track and achieve what they are after. 

-My fee is $1,000/3 months/ Six 45 minute sessions, or $1800/6 months/ Twelve 45 minute sessions.

-I typically schedule two sessions per month.  Each session is roughly 45 minutes in length, depending on the topic of the day.

-I have a 24hr in advance cancelation/rescheduling policy and will work with you to try and make your two sessions a month work with your schedule.
