General Life Coaching
Each session is a partnership. I listen, tease out objectives and create timelines and milestones while you provide your own knowledge and desire. It is a true collaboration that ensures success. Time management and work/life balance are hot issues, especially these days.
I love this! Do you have an idea in your head that you cannot let go of but at the same time can’t move forward? I have helped people launch non-profit organizations, create spiritual communities, tighten up their business communication, figure out their side hustle, publish books and more.

Health + Nutrition
As a recent graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to become a certified Health and Nutrition Coach, I created the program, Eat Responsively. It is a holistic look at exercise, diet, self-care and all aspects of living a balanced and juicy life.

Case Study: Entrepreneurial Empowerment
HOT OFF THE PRESS! Project management of Cooking From Memory: A Storyteller in the Kitchen by Jackie Jonas. This client has a story to tell and the recipes to prove it. I gave her timelines and deadlines and worked with Amy Pollack of Twist N Shout, graphic designer extraordinaire. It’s something and may be the foundation of a one woman performance piece.

Case Study: Virtual Decluttering
This is a picture of someone’s desk who was starting a new job and was nervous about her work area. We methodically cleared the area and set her up for success. With clients in California, Pittsburgh, Boston, Philly and more, I am thrilled that I can be of service to people needing to get STUFF OUT and ENERGY IN! I see it all, we stop when we bump into sticking points and then move on. I also offer workshops and accountability groups. It is all based on my DeClutter to DeLIght: Compassionate + Green Clutter Control method.
I loved working with Gari to actualize Hadar’s Rising Song Institute in Philadelphia. She is lovely, thoughtful, and thorough. Through a meticulous process of brainstorming, strategic questioning, executive coaching, project management, and deadline setting, Gari helped to bring our vision to reality. We now have our roots planted, new financial support coming in, and we’ve hired new staff.
If you’re unsure as to how to move forward as you work on a short or long term initiative, or if you need a general sounding board, coach, or person to hold you accountable to get things finished, even for small scale projects, I can’t recommend Gari enough as a thought partner and coach to help you get rolling sooner!
After a session with Gari, I feel that all things are possible. She listens, probes and asks questions that get me thinking. The homework gets me moving and ready to take action. She definitely cares.
Thanks Gari. I quite literally could not have done it without you.Jackie Jonas, Author, Cooking From Memory: A Storyteller in the Kitchen
Sometimes when I look around I don’t recognize my space or feel that I am in someone else’s office but I LIKE it and I want to keep going. I really appreciate talking about it when we are together. This all adds clarity to my work.
It is all much easier with you by my side, even if you are not in the same room!C.A.L.
