Philosophical Coaching

Why do we have so many questions when we are younger and we ask them with total confidence, then as we get older our very own thoughts get in the way of our clarity? Philosophical Coaching is designed to help us curate our thoughts mindfully and rationally on the way to creating a good life. I am particularly interested in the question, 'What makes a good life?' And while I think our pathways differ greatly, we all want to live purposeful and meaningful lives. 

What is Philosophical Coaching?

My coaching style centers around having a conversation about your life, maybe focusing on a specific area, or helping you make a big decision, or just listening and offering advice that is rooted in critical thinking and logical perspectives. 

I help women with older children find a new purpose and reclaim their identity using philosophical coaching techniques, which are rooted in critical inquiry and rational thought.


In my work with Colleen, I learned how to navigate difficult decisions by implementing reason. Colleen really helped me understand how my mindset was keeping me from seeing things with clarity. 


I honestly didn't know what to expect from philosophical coaching, I was very pleased to discover that Colleen recognized that my limiting beliefs were holding me back. She helped me change my inner monologue and understand my misperceptions regarding others' words and actions.

 I know that I can always depend on Colleen's help and support not just quickly, but individually as well, which requires great skill and dedication in a primarily virtual format - she manages so much, so well. And she always has an answer and solution for me; always!

Colleen encourages independent and critical thinking in a series of dynamic and thought provoking classes.


Colleen brings an important view to philosophy, one that is often not heard, and that is the view of 'the woman.' I highly recommend Colleen and truly believe that any organization would be lucky to have her.

Quotes I love...


"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."


Aristotle 


"One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman."



Simone De Beauvoir


"We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are."



Anais Nin

Live, Laugh, Love

"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” - Aristotle
