My specialty? A well-designed life.

My coaching work is all about helping clients align their lives to who they are and what they want.

It begins with getting clear about your design – what is innately true about you? What is essential to you? As we develop and get clear about your vision for your future, we’ll use this awareness as our compass.

Whether the clarity or change you seek is in your life, career, or small business, you’re in the right place.

the why

We all want quality of life, fulfillment, joy, and peace of mind.

 But many of us are living with a mismatch between who we are and how we’ve designed our lives. This mismatch prevents us from experiencing these precious things. I’ve seen this in my own life and in the lives of so many of my clients. The good news? When we define what alignment looks like and then take action to make it real, we unlock the best of ourselves. When we feel good in our lives, we’re better for it, our families and communities are better for it, and the world is better for it.

She gave me the encouragement I needed to take a leap of faith and believe I can do hard things.



The insights that Brandy offered during our sessions were invaluable and helped me develop the clarity and confidence to identify and seize the right opportunity when it came along.


Put succinctly, Brandy is brilliant at what she does. I came to Brandy with the seed of an idea - now I am on a clear path to seeing my business develop and it's hugely exciting.

EVELYN DIDN't settle

She helped me think more "blue sky" about what's possible for me and kept me from settling on what seemed to "make sense." She made the process hopeful and more exciting, like I could make anything happen.

Rene built new habits 

Working with Brandy has been extremely beneficial for me. She has helped me to prioritize, change my mindset, and organize my time to be able to attend to the things that matter most to me.



Our work will be highly tailored – I don’t have a one-size fits all approach. Once we connect and I get to know you, we’ll create a plan that is curated to your needs. For every 1:1 session, I strive to ensure we’re focusing on what’s most essential to move you forward.


Whether what you seek is career, life, or business support, my invitation to you is the same – bring your whole self to this work. You’re a multi-faceted person, so let’s consider these many facets as you design your future. Like a work of art, your personal life, home, relationships, career, and lifestyle should fit thoughtfully together.


I offer to be a partner throughout the full life-cycle of your needs. Whatever shift you seek, I’m with you from imagining what you want through to realizing it. Many clients work with me for a few weeks or months; other clients enjoy an ongoing relationship as they navigate their lives.


Let’s get you excited for your future.

The next step to explore working together is to schedule a complimentary consultation with me. We’ll get clear about what you seek and how to structure coaching to meet your needs.


So, what is coaching?

The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity, and leadership."

Where will we meet?

My office is in Berkeley, California. Currently, sessions are held via phone or online via video. 

How often will we meet?

How often we meet is up to you! Starting out, most of my clients work with me once a week or once every other week. We can adjust our cadence as needed.

How many sessions will I need?

We don't have to predict the total number of sessions at the start of our relationship as I do not sell packages. We can create a plan, but stay flexible to ensure you get the right number of sessions for you.

Most clients work with me for about eight sessions over the course of two or three months. Some clients return for a monthly or quarterly session. Others enjoy a longer-term relationship.

Do you help with writing and preparing resumes, LinkedIn, cover letters, or copy for a website?

Yes. If during the course of our work together, you need assistance with drafting language for your LinkedIn profile, re-thinking your resume, or crafting a thoughtful cover letter, we can tackle these tasks together. I also support clients with the copy for their websites or portfolios.
