As a coach, I work with every client to develop an individualized plan that accounts for your interests, goals, and lived experiences. Success is not one-size-fits-all, so I will help you determine and achieve success within the context of what is essential to you.

As an educator, I offer custom workshops and structured programming to enable scholars to develop their personal productivity practices through increased self-awareness and habit formation.

intentionally productive scholars program

education, community, and accountability for busy undergraduate students 

The IPSP is an 8-week program that will guide undergraduate scholars to develop meta-awareness around their own relationship with their productivity, time management, and work habits and also build a rich personal productivity toolkit of action steps that will benefit them in college, graduate school, and in their careers. Through weekly lessons, a detailed workbook, co-working sessions, group coaching calls, and engagement on the community portal, scholars will experience accountability, camaraderie, and professional support while applying intentional productivity to school, graduate school applications, and work/life balance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click each of the boxes below to expand it and read more.

What is Productivity Coaching?

Productivity Coaching helps you focus your energy and attention on high priority tasks so you can accomplish your goals without feeling overwhelmed. A Productivity Coach is a trained professional who provides one-on-one guidance to help a client develop practices such as time management, habit formation, prioritization, work/life balance, project management, setting boundaries around distractions like technology, and more.

What happens during Productivity Coaching Sessions?

I tailor every Productivity Coaching session for each client’s needs and interests. In general, I begin a session by establishing a client’s current relationship with productivity and then we move on to identify key goals that the client would like to accomplish on the short- or long-term. I ask many guiding questions to help my clients reflect on and articulate what outcomes they would like to achieve, and I assist my clients in developing a step-by-step plan that is actionable and achievable. By the end of every session, each client leaves with an individualized list of to-do tasks and/or experiments to try. For Success & Accountability Mentorship clients, monthly sessions also include a reflection on the previous month and cumulate in a productivity plan for the next month, in terms of work, rest, and self-care practices.

What are the benefits of Productivity Coaching?

The benefits of working with a Productivity Coach are vast. Clients who feel overwhelmed find that coaching offers them focused approaches to confusing projects, and clients regularly share that they feel like they were given permission to shift their relationship with their labor so they could achieve goals without overworking. I strive to help clients hone in on practical, realistic approaches to their work that function because they also prioritize rest and boundaries.

What topics do you cover during coaching?

I ensure that all of my Productivity Coaching sessions are individualized for each client, so no session is alike. However, there are a number of topics that I regularly work with clients on:

  • Time management
  • Prioritization
  • Habit formation (starting or stopping a habit)
  • Goal-setting and intention-setting
  • How to rest and take breaks
  • How to set boundaries around your work
  • Workaholism and workaholic tendencies
  • How to approach work when you live with chronic illness or chronic pain
  • Breaking down a larger task into manageable steps
  • Increasing focus
  • Handling overwhelm
  • Writing, particularly dissertations (reverse outlining, drafting, revision plans, concept-mapping and min-mapping, interpreting feedback, etc.)
  • Mindfulness
  • Self-care
  • and so, so much more.
What kinds of clients do you generally work with?

I’m open to working with any clients who want to reevaluate their relationship with productivity, although the majority of my clients are academics, creatives, and entrepreneurs. I have worked with many graduate students who are writing their dissertations and also with professors who are trying to establish balance between research, teaching, service, and non-work activities. I especially appreciate working with clients who live with chronic health issues, like chronic illness or chronic pain. Many of my clients come to me via recommendation, although my clients also find me on Instagram or via my podcast interviews.

You can read testimonials from previous coaching clients here.

What are your credentials?

I have been coaching clients in productivity since 2018, and I have been an educator and writing mentor for over a decade. I am professional scholar, trained researcher and writer, and I have three graduate degrees: an MFA, an MA, and a Ph.D. I take Productivity Coaching very seriously, which means I study and practice the tools I teach to my clients. I have published over 100 blog posts and three online articles about a myriad of productivity theories, practices, and approaches, and I have been interviewed on four podcasts. You can read my CV here.

What is your coaching philosphy?

I believe that every single one of my clients deserves to rest, to set boundaries around their work, and to define success on their own terms. I endeavor to translate my years of research and training into personalized, realistic approaches that each of my clients can use to find more peace, confidence, and pleasure in their lives. I will never tell a client to suck it up or ask them to overwork; instead, I’ll help them to develop a sustainable approach to productivity that is rooted in their values, goals, and preferences.

What types of sessions do you offer and what's offered in each?

I currently offer two different coaching options: Single Session Slowductivity Coaching and Success & Accountability Mentorship. Scroll up on this page to read more about each package.
