How I Learned To…

Master the work-life-business-of-law juggling act (and become a happily successful lawyer).


And yet you can’t help but think… There’s got to be more than this.


Having no time to workout, cook a decent meal or even schedule a plumber to fix your leaky bathroom faucet.


Secretly questioning whether “success” is worth it (uncertain what you want it to mean at this stage of your career and life).


Feeling like you must say “yes” to an over-demanding client or colleague (even though it means longer nights doing work you don’t even want to be doing).


Snapping at your child & picking fights with your partner (over truly insignificant things).


Worrying that you can’t keep up this pace… How, exactly, will you be able to get yourself and your practice to the next level?


Feeling intimidated by all the things you could be doing to grow your business, uncertain which strategies are best for you (and frustrated that less-than-stellar lawyers are passing you up).

You time manage like a pro, and have mastered every productivity trick there is. And not to toot your own horn but you’re a stellar lawyer. What, exactly, are you missing?

Where I come in...

After more than 18 years in private practice and a battle with breast cancer, I traded in my multi-million dollar practice to help lawyers become happily successful using my unique 3-R Formula:

Rewire + Reconnect + Realign.

I’ve spent the past 20+ years mentoring (and now coaching) lawyers – like you – to 10x (or more) your professional and personal results while ditching stress, overthinking and people-pleasing.

Truth: stress, anxiety, and depression (at higher-than-the-norm rates) does not have to “come with the territory” of being an attorney.

There’s a better way (as evidenced by me and my clients).

Picture of Heather looking down

More than 50% of private practice lawyers report feeling stressed and/or anxious most of the time. A whopping 74% of surveyed attorneys say the profession has had a negative impact on their mental health.

    Yep, that was me (for years). And because I was worried about what others might think (I’d wanted to be a lawyer since the age of 10!), I pushed through while telling myself it’s the nature of the beast.

    Until the night my husband (upon hearing me complain for the millionth time) finally said… “Heather, you have a choice.”

    I didn’t want to admit that billing 80+ hours per week & sleeping just 4-5 hours per night was my own fault, and went to bed angry.

    But I woke up the next morning (begrudgingly) thinking… “He’s right.”

    It was time to rewire my mentality (and habits), reconnect to what I valued and realign around what was most important to me (instead of all the things others wanted from and for me).

    This was the starting point for what I call my Inside-Out Success Formula (Rewire + Reconnect + Realign).

    Fast-forward a few years and I was a partner in an AmLaw 100 firm; successfully balancing a $1MM+ book of business (that eventually grew to over $2.5MM) with a fulfilling life.

      So… How did I get here?

      Two words: Breast cancer.

        I was only 38 at the time of diagnosis, with 2 young kids at home (ages 2 and 6). The cancer was aggressive; the prognosis wasn’t good.

        Thankfully, I beat the odds.

        But this experience changed me. It even changed how I defined one of my values (service). Although it certainly didn’t happen overnight, I eventually realized it was time to leave law behind.

        I traded in my thriving law practice to start this business.

          My mission is simple

          Whether you’re in private practice or in-house, I am here to help you advocate for yourself as fiercely as you do for your clients so that you can fearlessly create the legal practice you want.

          Because you are not destined for high stress, anxiety and burnout. And anyone can build a thriving law practice (even if you’re introverted, like me!).

          Leaving a successful career behind wasn’t easy. I was worried it wasn’t the right choice, terrified it wouldn’t work.

            But after what I had been through, no way was I going to allow fear to stop me.

            And I wanted to show my boys that they have the power to create their own happiness.

            P.S. I want that for you too.

            You already have what it takes…

            Smart. Driven. Committed.

            You just need help from an expert who understands your situation and can guide you to figure out your answers.

              Here’s what clients have to say

              Thanks to Heather, I am the happiest I have ever been in my career.

              When I came to Heather, I was looking for an experienced coach and business/operations strategist who could help sharpen my skills and create more structure around my business goals while also coaching me to be my best as a business owner, manager and mother. She checked all the boxes: coach, mother, lawyer who grew her own business, and entrepreneur with an understanding of finance (and law firm finance).

              I was initially concerned that coaching would put me into a circle of aimless questions, leaving me to second-guess myself. That’s not how it works with Heather. Her questions TRULY guide me every step of the way to being decisive and confident in my decisions. She is a curious and attentive listener – I never feel alone.

              I love that even when Heather consults, she first asks questions and listens intently before giving any advice. I’m learning a boatload about listening and asking questions from Heather, which is making me a better lawyer/counselor and manager.

              Heather taught me how to ask myself the right questions to get from problem to solution.

              When I first started working with Heather, I had lost the passion and drive I once had for my work. I didn’t perceive that I was living a meaningful life. Coaching with Heather gave me the confidence to effectively communicate why I was the best fit for a big promotion at work (that I got). I’m now genuinely looking forward to how my future plays out.
