Gen X Woman On A Dayhike

“Dorian has been an incredible help to me as someone who struggles with decision making. Now that my kids are teens, I'd been stuck trying to figure out if I should go back to work, and how to go about it, after being a stay home mom for 15 years. Dorian gave me practical decision-making tools to help me come to the conclusion that I will go back to school and start a new career. She is currently helping me plan out steps to achieve this that I would not have known to do on my own. She has strengthened my confidence and helped me work through fears. The best thing about Dorian is that she is a wonderful listener and able to help me further process and clarify my own thoughts by putting words to them."


As a mother, deciding whether to stay home with your kids, go back to school or work, or take on a different project can be gut-wrenching. You want to do what’s best for your family while making the most of your unique gifts and precious time. As the years go by, your children need you less. Eventually, you’ve done such a good job raising them, they make their own meals and drive themselves to practice! This is a good thing, because you’re feeling the pressure to earn income for their college tuition. Or, perhaps it’s time to take care of your aging family members. 

For all the blessings that motherhood brings, it also causes frustration, loneliness and ambivalence. These feelings—while completely normal—can be debilitating. I’m here to help you gain understanding so you can navigate the twists and turns of motherhood. If you are ready to take new steps in your life, contact me to schedule a free, 30-minute phone consultation. 

What you can expect 

During our initial 30-minute phone call, you’ll have the opportunity to tell me about your present situation and your top concerns. From there, we can determine a course of action that typically includes meeting at my office in Mason while your children are in school. Our coaching sessions will be one-on-one, productive, and completely confidential. I’ll partner with you to support what you already know: change comes from within. With each session, we’ll tap into your internal motivation to learn, grow and discover your best path to a life that enriches you and everyone around you. Ultimately, you can expect to change your life!

Clients often ask “How many coaching sessions will I need to make a change in my life or accomplish my goals”? That’s a fair question and the answer is that most clients will meet for 4-6 sessions for a goal where advanced planning or prework has been initiated. Other clients, just beginning to explore what change might look like for them, will benefit from 3 to 6 months of regular (weekly or biweekly) sessions to move forward especially when several goals have been identified. Each client is unique as are their hopes and dreams for the future and as such, the duration of coaching sessions varies.
