Individual Coaching

I coach pastors who want to become more effective leaders. Whether you are a head of staff or solo pastor, serving as an intentional interim or working in a specialized ministry, trying to find a balance in bi-vocational ministry or negotiating the needs of a multi-point charge, or balancing dual vocations as parent or partner and priest or pastor, I can help you become a more effective leader without losing yourself.

Individual Coaching Rates: $70 per session, or $325 for a package of 5 sessions.

I take particular interest in coaching clergywomen and LGBTQIA+ clergy. 


I coach congregations, leaders, and staff interested in reorganizing themselves to flourish in service to God and community. Coaching benefits congregations in seasons of transition, growth, and redevelopment, as well as churches considering closure.
