Individuals and Coaching

My goal as a storytelling coach is to help you find, craft, and share your story with authenticity and joy.

During coaching sessions we dig into playful story-centered questions, writing prompts, and activities to find the vision, heart, and arc of your narrative. In these sessions I listen deeply, ask a lot of questions, and offer insight on story structure and character voice so that you can write or speak your story with clarity and confidence. 

Consideration of how your story moves and impacts your listeners is a key part of coaching sessions. I work to help you hear your story from the listeners' point of view so that your speaking engagement is not just about telling a great story, but is also about weaving genuine connections with other humans in a room. 

Tell your story with JOY!

Rachael helped me take a 25 minute story down to 8 minutes and the story was STILL super impactful. I also used to hate writing cause I got overwhelmed putting everything down on paper.
