My girl…

“The challenges of finding love are highly complex, seldom systematically explored, and relatively new.”-

Alain de Botton

It all began with a single question: Why is dating in this day and age so miserable?

That was the question that plagued me following a life-altering breakup in my late 20s. It was 2014. The apps were all the rage. And yet everyone was miserable. Ghosting had become a massive phenomenon. People were paralyzed over what to text back. And it was supposedly impossible to meet people in person.

I was…perplexed (to say the least). What was really going on here? So I got to work, unpacking and researching and unearthing why women like myself felt so disempowered in their dating lives.

What began as a personal journey to create a more whole-hearted, authentic and organic approach to meaningful partnership in the digital age morphed into a full blown career change. I now have the honor and pleasure of working with other women who are ready for a different conversation around dating, and supporting their journey to partnership.

As a coach I’m here to facilitate change, namely in the form of giving you more agency (a sense of ownership and control) over your pursuit of partnership. This isn’t just about knowing what to text back or how to avoid being ghosted. This is about transforming your dating experience to move purposefully towards the relationship you want.

If more of the nitty gritty is what you want, then here goes: I hold a B.A. in Philosophy with honors from Johns Hopkins University, with a concentration in Women and Gender Studies. I received my life coaching training through the Coaches Training Institute and health coaching training through the Nutritional Therapy Association. I spent most of my 20s and 30s growing companies – some big, some small, some my own. Most recently I led marketing for Aaptiv, taking the company from a humble team of three to over 100 full time employees 20 million in revenue in less than two years.

Most folks work with me because they’ve read something I’ve written and thought “OMG! This person gets me.” All that writing can be found here.

And if you’re interested in working together, all those details are here.

Much love,

Clara
