Got a creative goal on the horizon?

Project deadline approaching?

Want to build a new habit or quit a bad one?

Overwhelmed by everything and need some guidance on prioritization? 

I am now offering one-on-one, hour-long coaching sessions,

online for all and in person for people in western Massachusetts.

Why work with me?
My expertise as a coach is rooted in a combination of knowledge and experience. I walk my talk as a scholar and creative, having published a book of poetry and a scholarly article and earning both an archival research fellowship and a dissertation teaching-release fellowship. I’ve spent the last year honing my coaching practice, working with creatives and graduate students in a variety of fields. You can read more of my research in productivity and self development in my weekly blog posts, which I’ve been sharing since January 2018.

What a client has to say:

Kate Litterer is a conscientious, talented and considerate coach who works diligently and meticulously to ensure that her clients meet their desired goals. Her unique approach to productivity is valuable, and no two plans are alike! She carefully crafts plans that meets clients like myself where they are and get them where they want to be. As a graduate student, I found her focus on mental health to be extremely comforting and gratifying. I am grateful to Kate for the strategies and tools she showed me to make the best productivity plans that work for my style and workload. I believe she would be an extraordinary asset to any professional seeking to get organized and stay on task without the fear of burnout or shame.

My approach is holistic and strength-based. 
I work with each client to develop an individualized plan that accounts for your personal interests, goals, and lived experiences. Unlike most productivity coaching, which hails one stereotype of “success,” we will resee success within the context of what is realistic and essential to you. Having a personalized plan that accounts for your real life will enable you to improve the quality of your output as well as establish new habits and perspectives around productivity in general.
What kind of coaching do I offer?
My coaching style is eclectic and my personal expertise is in productivity. You could call me a success coach or a productivity coach or a project management coach or a life coach or a writing coach. I specialize in prioritization and habit formation, and I incorporate mindfulness and self care into my practice. I will guide you through the life of your intentions, from the beginning inkling of “How the hell do I do this?” to the finishing touches. 
I offer coaching sessions on a sliding scale cost.
I do this to make my coaching practice accessible to as many folx as possible. I accept payment via Paypal, Venmo, and cash, and I also accept some trade (coaching-for-coaching, healing, art and creativity, lessons in cool things).

My rates are tiered as follows:

Base: $60.00/hour
Mid: $75.00/hour
Full: $90.00/hour
