1:1 Mindful Coach Sessions with Brett

$250 per session

It would be an honor to work with you.

This work is particularly well suited for professionals looking for clarity and insight into their path,  especially coaches, healers, teachers, or others who are called to lead or help in some capacity.

Sessions are $250 for one hour. My clients usually meet with me no more than 5 or 6 times as the method is quite efficient.

A preliminary meeting is required to ensure a good fit for both of us. In some select cases, pro-bono is offered – in particular in support of women or creative folk who are seeking to get established after a life-changing event.
