What is coaching?

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) “defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.”


Coaching Can Help You…


Move from doubt to action

Not only will you gain awareness around what’s holding you back, you’ll be able to clearly define what success looks like for you.


Know what's really holding you back

Most of us are not aware of the deep beliefs that are holding us back. Without this awareness it’s hard to get unstuck and move forward.


Work through your ideas in a safe place

You don’t have to do this work alone. As your coach, I’m here to support and cheer you along.


Build and keep momentum

Coaching allows you to have that burst of energy to start the accountability needed to keep going until your goal is complete.


Are you ready for thought-provoking conversations and growth?

Schedule a Discovery Call to learn more about coaching and see if we’re a good fit. Please note: You’ll be prompted to answer a few questions to help us prepare for the call.

Which one of these statements sound like you?


I have so many ideas

One of the best things about the time we’re living in is all the different career options and the seemingly easy access to get started. Such as, you can choose a 9-to-5 job or become a full-time content creator. All these ideas can leads us to do many different things without really accomplishing anything. Coaching can get you clear.


I want to do it all.

Yes, you can do, and maye have, it all but maybe not all at once. Coaching can help you figure out your next best step.


I know what I want but don't know how to get there.

Maybe you’re clear on your career choice or the business you want to start but for some reason you’re not making any real progress. Coaching can help you to figure out what’s holding you back.


Am I doing the right thing?

Let me be honest, I can’t tell you what to do. BUT… Coaching can help you do the inner work to make sure you’re making decisions that align with your values and your definition of success.


Real Words From Real Clients


She Really Challenged Me

Karie was great and she really challenged me to dig deeper and grow. The regular sessions with her were extremely helpful and I’ve grown so much over the course of this semester.

Why Work With Me

Choosing your career may not be easy but it doesn’t have to hard!

I’ve made so many mistakes with my career. I believed that if I just focused on being creative then  everything else would fall into place. I was so wrong! Having a business or career takes a lot of intentional and strategic work such as curating skills, clarifiying goals, shifting mindset, defining success, building community and so much more. All of this requires a deeper level of personal and professional awareness.

As your coach, my goal is to get you clear, ready, and confident to choose and start your career. I listen to understand where you want to go but challenge you to move past the things that have been holding you back.



I have 20+ years of combined experience as a graphic designer, web designer, brand strategist, visual communication professor and certified professional coach. Now, I want to help others on their personal and professional journey.


Not only do I have degrees in marketing, advertising and graphic design but I’m a certified professional coach through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). I’ve spent the last six years learning about human behavior and what it takes to create the change we need inorder to achieve the success we want. 


I’ve said this before but you really don’t need to do this alone. I’m here to challenge and encourage your towards accomplishing your goals.


Frequently Asked Questions

Who do you coach?

Technically. . .  I can coach everyone. However, I find myself coaching creative professionals, college students and entry-level professionals the most. Most of the people who contact me are interested in starting their career or freelance business.

If you’re interested in coaching with me, go ahead and schedule a Discovery Call. Let’s see if we’re a good fit for each other.

What do people talk about in a coaching session?

That’s a great question! Since I’m a career and business coach people tend to discuss choosing the right career, trouble starting their career or questions around building a freelance business. Please keep in mind that I don’t give advice or provide consultation services! I’m a true believer in the power of coaching and part of that power is knowing that the answers the client seek are already within them. My job is to ask you the right questions for those answers to be revealed.

Is coaching like therapy?

No. Therapist are licensed professionals who tend to focus on helping clients heal from previous life events. Coaches do not have a license. We focus on working empowering clients to move past their mental blocks to accomplish their goals.

How can you guarantee my success?

Simply put: I cannot guarantee your success. Your results are determined by your readiness, full participation in the session and follow through in completing your action items.

What happens during our session?

Each session is conducted over Zoom on a video call. We’ll start the session laying the foundation on what you would like to discuss. Then, I’m going to ask you a ton of exploratory questions to help us gain awareness on what’s really holding you back. We’ll end each session by establishing action steps you’ll complete before we meet again.

How much does coaching cost?

Coaching is definitely an investment and my most premium offering for individuals. Individual coaching sessions range from $250 – $497 per session.

Clarity Sessions are $497 per 90-minute session which also includes a 30-minute follow-up session for a total of 2 hours of coaching.

Coaching Sessions are $250 per 60-minute session and require a minimum 6-month commitment. 

*Please note that these prices can change at any time even if the website is not updated.

What happens after or between sessions?

In-between sessions, you’ll be working on completing your action items. We’ll meet approximately on a bi-weekly basis.

Clarity Sessions include a (1) time 30-minute follow-up session approximately 2-weeks later.

What if I need more than one session?

You do have the option to choose on-going coaching. My coaching package requires a 6-months minimum commitment.  Please visit the coaching page for more information.

What if I can't afford your coaching services but need help with my business or career?

I know what it’s like to not have the budget for certain growth opportunities. That’s why I’ve been intentional in creating FREE-mium and low cost digital content to help you with your growth. This will give you access to content and resources that address specific issues you may face in your professional and even personal development. I encourage you to visit my resources page for more information. Content is being added every month to that page.
