Life Coaching

As your life coach, you will find support, embrace healing, define your purpose, gain perspective, focus, and growth.

 Piper has been extremely supportive of me on my journey and is the cheerleader that I never knew I needed!! She has helped me to believe in myself and to focus on the gains I have made no matter how small or big. She is great at putting things into perspective and helping me get out of my own way. She is an amazing fountain of knowledge and her own journey is an inspiration.

Amanda Prough | Readiness Initiative Manager

As I stepped in this new role as "MOM," I was really struggling on finding a balance for myself, my new beautiful baby, my husband as well as work.  She really did assist/advise/coach me through these transitions in life and how to be the best version of myself for all of the hats I was wearing. Partnering with her helped me find balance, regain some passion that was lost and move me in a professional manner to obtain new opportunities within my organization at work.

Struggling in your career and unsure if you're in the correct field.

In career navigation coaching I will guide you into finding your best fit career while unearthing and embracing their strengths.

Piper was an enormous help in rethinking my career path. She was strategic, dynamic, detailed, dedicated and honest. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to accelerate career growth or considering a career pivot.

Ashlie Santora | Public Health

I found Piper at just the right time in my career and after speaking to her for the first time I knew she would take me to a new level personally and professionally. She is skilled and talented and asks the questions that make you do the work and you realize the value in yourself. Piper gave me tools that I can carry with me as I work on climbing the corporate ladder. She is not afraid to disagree and ask the tough questions that force you to grow.


She follows up every session with work that you put in and report back. It’s through these assignments that you practice the skills she has given you that week.


Not only is she incredibly humble and kind but she approaches your challenges in a way that empowers you. I found myself taking notes throughout the week on topics I wanted to tackle with her in our next session. I also used strategies we discussed in action at work each week.


I can’t recommend her enough and the investment in you and your career will pay off ten fold. Piper is an amazing human and wonderful as a mentor and leader!!

My Approach

Coaching may be something new to you.  In fact, many women who seek coaching have never worked with a coach before. And, I'm a bit different with my philosophy and approach.

Having a background as a mental health counselor, you will find that our coaching sessions are warm and friendly where I caringly challenge your beliefs and thought processes. I invite you to a co-collaboration as we work together. I never judge you, nor do I assume you're incapable of the change you desire. In fact, I believe you're more powerful and courageous than you can imagine and will work tirelessly to show you so.

Consider this:  You have a destination you'd like to reach.  You have a map, a tank of gas, and snacks for the road.  But, reaching a destination alone can be scary, frustrating, and boring!  

I'm your co-pilot.  You've asked me to come along on the journey. I help you read your map, talk with you about which turns would be the best to take, help you work through frustrations of hitting slowdowns and blown tires, and I'm here to encourage you though you may be weary.

Best of all, I'm also there to celebrate when your journey reaches each individual destination along the way!

My approach is rooted in self-awareness with deep empathy.  I use various tools and methods to assist you, for example, motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy tools, and various other approaches that are based on clinical mental health counseling.  I will help you to acknowledge the beliefs, habits, and values which are navigating your life and how you can fine-tune or discard them for your best success.  I will caringly ask you tough questions and hold you accountable to your goals.

Each coaching session includes:

  • Non-judgemental, caring, and empathy-driven sessions, 6o minutes in length

  • Video or phone sessions, whichever you're most comfortable with

  • Post-session notes for additional reflection in between sessions

  • Personal growth "homework" as you desire

*Unfortunately, I do not accept insurance at this time due to my graduate studies not being complete. However, I will work with you on fees to ensure you find the support you need.  Please be sure to contact me for more information.
