Coaching with me feels brave and exciting, productive and supportive, and like the world is full of possibilities. I hold a calm, nonjudgmental space for all of the tough stuff and for all of your big, beautiful dreams. Together, we break down your obstacles and plan the way forward into your wide-open future.
My mission is to provide every client with excellent, transformative coaching and unwavering support, free of all judgment and built on a foundation of unconditional loving kindness.
I love to coach because I love to see how people transform their lives just by tapping into their own courage. I love to listen, to ask questions, and to help people see their own incredible potential. I truly believe that, with the right support and the right mindset, every person has the ability to bring their dreams to life.
I have been, and continue to be, on a lifelong journey toward greater self-understanding, self-compassion, and fulfillment. Ever since I was a child, I have been a seeker of life's wisdom and a pursuer of my best self. My journey has taken me many places and presented me with lessons for growth in many areas, including:
And questioning my subconscious beliefs about myself.
The more I practice and learn, the more joy and fulfillment flow into my life. I became a coach because I believe everyone deserves to experience a life of joy and fulfillment, and no one can do it alone. In addition to my loved ones, I am supported by some amazing professional coaches and healers who help to keep me moving forward. I hope to provide that support to you - to walk beside you for a part of your journey and to help you find the clarity, the motivation, and the courage to move forward.
I live in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC with my wife, Elizabeth, and our snuggly cat, Fafi. When I'm not coaching, I love to be gardening, dancing, reading, discovering new places, and learning new things.
"Athena is a breath of fresh air even in the heaviest of circumstances. She keeps the session focused on what's working, moving forward, and becoming a better version of myself." -Stephanie G.
"Athena has a wonderful way of providing empathy for how I am feeling about starting a business. She has a very calming demeanor and makes you feel very comfortable, even with silence. I left the first session knowing that what I am doing right now is a true reflection of who I am and that I want to continue doing it because it is based on my true authentic self." -Julie P.
