Customized Support for Collaborative Change-Makers
Is Coaching Right for You, Now?
At its most basic level, coaching is a form of personalized, one-on-one support for your personal & professional development and evolution. It's built for those who are
Perched on the edge of a major life decision and need the courage to take the leap into the unknown
Positioned to bring about change for a team, group, or organization and need the confidence to lead fearlessly
Stuck in the mud on what to do or where to go next and need clarity about your values, vision, and goals
Meet Marina, ICF Certified Coach
Together, we'll tap your passion about the possibilities before you, assess the gap between where you are and where you want to be, and create a sense of purpose accountability, and urgency for moving in that direction. As your Coach, I will support you with skills, techniques, and deep listening as you practice and make progress over time.
You wouldn't be here if you didn't have the motivation, growth mindset, and drive to evolve your life. So the question is,
What will be possible as you become a more clear, confident, and courageous you?
"Marina quickly understood how I was feeling and where I wanted to go. She helped me reframe my circumstances to see the opportunities before me. By the end of our first session, I felt equal parts relieved, energized and ready for the next chapter."

"I turned to Marina twice when I stood at a crossroads in both my personal and professional life. She helped me explore big ideas and build the confidence to take calculated risks. Some of her powerful questions still ring in my ears to this day."
How does Coaching work?
My coaching philosophy is simple: Competence builds Confidence which generates Courage. My approach helps you develop crucial skills to consciously communicate, resolve conflict, build consensus, and navigate complex change in ways that align with your values. As you build your competence and confidence, you feel more courageous, allowing you to take on challenges, head-first, and lead into uncharted territory.
My coaching sessions are designed to help you:
Deepen reflection and expand awareness about your present reality.
Understand choices and their likely consequences
Weigh strategic options against your goals and deeply held values
Plan for personal stretch and risk-taking
Take meaningful action and be accountable to yourself

What to Expect from Marina's Coaching
I am an experienced and certified professional coach (ICF ACC) trained in the Brown University's ACT Model of Leadership Coaching. My unique approach incorporates mindfulness, conflict resolution and collaborative leadership skills that achieve sustainable results for my clients. We begin with an initial “fit” assessment and then create a customized plan to attain your goals. While the approach can vary, I often recommend committing to a four-month program that combines coaching with targeted skills training to help you achieve outcomes that live on long after coaching has ended.
Individual Coaching Package
Impactful change doesn't happen overnight. My 10-session program completed over 4-6 months is just the right size commitment to experience the power of coaching. This program includes:
One month of weekly sessions to kick-start your transformation and create momentum for change
Three months of bi-weekly sessions to assess your progress and adapt your approach
Active outreach between sessions with
A reminder of your Coaching Goals and
Review of your Current ACTion Plan
A curated resource related to your goals
A personal word of encouragement.

This 6-month system of support is priced at $3,000.
Other Coaching Options
While I recommend a long-term approach to achieve lasting results, sometimes there's a need for support "just in time". You can schedule a one-off coaching session to support your time-sensitive challenges directly via this link:
TEAM AND GROUP COACHING
When it comes to teams, it’s not only about what you accomplish, but how you work together and how it feels.
The Team Coaching package focuses on turning a group of colleagues into a connected, functioning team.
It engages team members on multiple levels and is designed for sustained effectiveness after the coaching ends. Rates vary depending on the size of the organization and coaching team.
