​"Sometimes all you need is a creative thought partner to motivate and support you to become the best version of you."

The reality is that sometimes we find ourselves “stuck” during our professional and life journey. Maybe you are simply looking to get unstuck, transition, develop skills or is it that something just feels off - like you are missing a sense of purpose? No matter what the situation, we can easily become overwhelmed, spinning our wheels in place and unable to step out and change our dynamics.

My role as a coach is to help you gain more self-awareness and clarity so that you can confidently step forward again.


My mission is to encourage your growth and increase your resilience by showing you how to break restrictive patterns and live openly and mindfully. Together we will identify your priorities and act on what matters to you most – I can’t wait to see you thrive as a leader, woman, and/or parent!

Working with me should feel like you are holding an invisible compass steering you a little closer to your goals and the life, career, relationships you genuinely want. Think of your coach as your creative thought partner who keeps you accountable every step of the way.

What I Specialize In




"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step..."

Cecilia is very spontaneous and engaging.  I felt she could almost see through me and that was unsettling at first but her wisdom and knowledge quickly puts you at ease and on the right track!

- MD, Private Equity

I was reluctant to get a coach but my friend highly recommended Cecilia.  I did not want to feel like I was in therapy.  I don't think I have laughed and learned so much about myself even after only 1 session. By the second one I was hooked!

- VP, IT Security

Cecilia is a wiz at the power of deduction.  She will ask you poignant questions without you realizing where she is taking you.  Soon you will be asking yourself: “How did she get me to uncover all these facts about myself.” Very invigorating!  

- Founder, Retail
