Hi, I'm Helen, and I'm so glad you're here.


I'm a coach, writer, and artist, based in Appleton, Wisconsin. I work with powerful women (women who don't always know or believe they're powerful) to leverage their curiosity, discover what exists for them beyond their default future, and achieve their Big, "Impossible" Thing. The process of transformation requires us to question everything; asking the really good questions just so happens to be my strong suit.


You are a visionary with an undeniable impact. You're willing to take risks (you've taken them before—and found both awesome successes and spectacular failures on the other side), and you know fear is a sign you're on the right track. You're highly motivated, but you often aim too low. You're fun, resourceful, and creative as hell. Prolific in thought, but unrelentingly perfectionistic in deed. Wildly capable, you could describe yourself as an underachieving high-achiever. In hot pursuit of an important dream that feels impossible to actualize (but never realizing it would be painful beyond measure). You believe you require permission, but what you really need is a once and for all commitment to your highest self.


I am a visionary. A catalyst. A curiosity enthusiast and a creative writer who believes in game-changing conversation. I am a full-time wanderer, though I'm no longer a nomad. As a coach, I dig and plumb, and I will question anything that resembles a fact. I believe everything can benefit from being treated as an experiment. I don't believe in excuses, especially yours, because I see how you're actually extraordinary, and I will challenge any belief systems you're holding onto that preclude your seeing it, too. My aim, my objective, my mission, my angle is SERVICE, pure and simple. I want to help you to become the most you, the you-est you, and to discover, pursue, and achieve your Big, "Impossible" Thing (because that "impossible" thing is very likely your deepest longing and the thing the world needs from you).


Together, we are a team that looks nothing like any of your other partnerships. We are oriented entirely around you and your Big Thing—why you want it, why it isn't already yours, and how to go about creating it. Together, we unlock the (usually small) distinction that changes absolutely everything going forward. No tiptoeing, no sugar-coating, no holds barred; we both play full-out every time. Our conversations might resemble jam sessions or creative investigations in some instances, relentless archaeological digs in others. We have fun (though you might, on occasion, hate me) because we're on the same team and we know there's alchemy when we put our heads together. What you want is closer than you know. Are you ready for it?
