How does all of this work?
Yes, like if we met at a party, or while in line waiting for coffee.
We have a conversation and start exploring who you are what you want to make happen in your world, your life, your self.
And then, if I think I can help you with that, we talk AGAIN (but for longer this time).
We slow things down, see if we even like one another! because for a partnership to happen we have to know 1) what you'd want to create with the support of a coach 2) that you're willing to start taking microaction on it 3) that I'm the person that can help you!
All of those things take time, and I'm not here to rush, cajole, convince, or push you towards any of it.
What I can tell you, though, is that the women who have committed to this partnership have made. things. happen.
They've left draining jobs, started movements, written books, traveled the world, changed careers and --- most importantly -- rediscovered something within themSELVES that they thought had been lost. They've learned how to slow down to speed up, stay centered in the face of change and transition, and rely on themselves as their own personal, infinite source of wisdom, creativity, new ideas, solutions, and resilience. (want to hear it from them? click here)
So if you're at all curious to know more, to share your story, to have some space to shine a light on your Big Idea and what you think is holding you back, let's talk.
(And if the idea of all of this makes you a bit nervous, you're in the right place.)
Curious what others have to say?
When Allegra and I reconnected and started working together again I was feeling afraid on some levels to actually move forward with that I really wanted. Allegra is a trusted sounding board. She isn’t the kind of coach that often tells me exactly what to do. Instead, she listens to what I’m going through and comes back with strategies for me to work on regarding said struggles. You know how when you take a shower and the bathroom mirror ends up all foggy, then you go to put on makeup or brush your hair? You can see the outline, a blurred image of what you look like. Allegra’s sort of like the hand that wipes away the fog so I can see myself more clearly.
I trust Allegra, and when we work together, I end up feeling more effective and confident.

I started working with Allegra after realizing that ME is the MOST important and that other people can not make me feel happy.
One of the most noticeable parts of our work together are the ah ha moments when I realize it’s just my thoughts in my head then I calm down
As a result my work with Allegra, when I am about to let my thoughts run wild I actually stop and take a moment to settle down. When I am about to complain I pause and become mindful about what I want to say. And the BIGGEST change was how I disconnected from my phone without the anxiety that I can not get to it.
Allegra challenges me, and I enjoy challenging myself. Usually someone gives me advice and I have the opportunity to take it or not. Instead, Allegra gives me opportunities to agree, disagree or renegotiate.

When Allegra and I started working together I was in a place of knowing that there had to be more to life. Despite having a family and running a household and business - "Having it all" - I still felt like I was missing something and like there had to be a better way!
At the time I was struggling to find space for me with everything that I have going on. I was constantly feeling like I was giving (clients, kids, dogs, house, husband, family, etc) and not taking time for myself. I was Overfilled & Unfulfilled
The most transformative part of working with Allegra is how “OK” I feel. I have my bad days and great days, but much more of an overarching sense of OK.
Because of our work I’ve discovered that I need to play more. I’ve realized that my world is always revolving around trying to reach some sort of unattainable perfection and that I need to let myself play and have fun with everything I do! Stop taking life so seriously! I am excited to have found that part of myself again.
Quite simply, I was overwhelmed and looking to create space; Allegra helped me figure out how to create more of what I want and less of what I don’t want.
