Inside-Out Success Coaching

Retake control of your career to achieve more while doing less (and start having fun again).

You’re respected, make good money and have accomplished a lot.

And yet. . .

»» You often feel distracted by thoughts about what still needs to get done and what could have been done better.

»» You can’t seem to disconnect from work (even when you’re sick or on vacation).

»» You have so little time for self-care that a glass (or two) of wine has become your main form of stress relief (which isn’t working so well).

»» You spend most of your time putting out the hottest fires, which creates new ones for tomorrow (rinse + repeat).

»» You mirror the tactics + behaviors of peers instead of building the career/practice you really want (because it’s what’s expected and you don’t always trust your instincts).

»» You take on too much because you feel guilty saying no. . . yet you also feel resentful for it (and take it out on your partner and kids).

You’re not alone

As a smart, ambitious lawyer you put others first and are driven to succeed.  But if left unchecked, it leads you to put your values, desires and ambitions aside, which fuels stress and anxiety (and even makes you question your decisions).  Not only is that unsustainable, but it’s a fast-track to burnout.

That’s where Inside-Out Success Coaching comes in.

Imagine instead. . .

  • Knowing how to harness your internal energy to quickly release stress, anxiety and worry for more focus and better performance (while working less!).
  • Rewiring your mind for resilience so that you KNOW – from deep within your soul – that you can handle whatever life throws your way (even a global pandemic that turns life + law upside-down).
  • Prioritizing what matters most to you (without guilt or apology), with strong boundaries you feel good about enforcing that give you actual space to think and loads more energy.
  • Having a defined vision for your career/practice with crystal clarity around your next steps so that you can once again feel passionate about the law and excited about your future.
  • Leading with confidence because you trust your instincts, and gaining the recognition & respect you deserve as a result.
  • Simplifying your efforts so that you can achieve more while doing less (and increase your profits + income).

From a glass that was half-empty to one that’s overflowing (in only a couple of months).

When I first came to Heather I was stuck in a rut, unfocused and felt ineffective (in all areas of my life). Heather helped me figure out what I really want and how to align my decisions around my priorities guilt-free.

I now feel content – both personally and professionally – and can fit the pieces of my life together in a cohesive manner.  And the best part is that I’m putting in less hours at work yet doing better.

Simple Strategies That Work

Success is Created from the Inside-Out

By adopting the right strategies to create a calm, healthy mindset and reconnecting to your values you can simplify your efforts and build the legal career + practice you really want.  You’ll do less to achieve (and BE) more.

Hey there, I’m Heather.

And have a confession to make. . .

Early in my legal career successful was the LAST word I would have used to describe myself.  Although I had achieved ‘paper success’, I was burning out from 90+ hour work weeks and zero boundaries.

After coming to grips with the fact that things were unsustainable, I decided to redefine success on my own terms.

I built a values-based practice that leveraged my unique strengths while working to get control of my thoughts.  And it worked!  I increased my profits (and my revenue) while also:

  • taking care of myself guilt-free,
  • strengthening my marriage, and
  • staying active in my boys’ lives.

And I was having fun.

I now help ambitious lawyers like you to succeed in BOTH life and law (on your own terms).

Client Success Stories

Heather has a special talent for making people’s lives better.

She quickly uncovered what was really behind my struggles and how to fix them with tangible solutions. Her positive energy is contagious!

Lorilei Cronin

Corporate Counsel II, Pier 1 Imports

Heather will re-energize you both personally and professionally.

I came to Heather feeling stressed and overwhelmed from trying to juggle my current workload with the pressure to build more business. This stress created a vicious cycle of frustration, emotional reactivity and increased stress – and negatively impacted my work relationships.

Heather gave me the tools I needed to uncover my stress triggers, take control of my emotional responses and let go of the (mostly self-imposed) pressure that I felt.

Roxanne Edwards

Partner, Klemchuk LLP

Heather taught me how to be my own coach, so that I can get from problem to solution on my own.

I came to her feeling unmotivated and without passion for my career, but now genuinely look forward to pursuing my professional goals.

Heather gave me a much-needed voice of reason, encouraged me to dig deep, and helped me to be accountable to myself.  That’s exactly what I needed to get unstuck and start moving in the right direction.

And she taught me how to come up with my desired solutions on my own so that I could achieve higher levels of success in my career that was balanced with a healthy personal life.

Amy Lane

Heather understands the personal and professional challenges of high-achieving professionals.
