About SB

Do you have a brave space and a trusted guide for challenging internal work? Take a second to read about what makes SB the coach that inquisitive professionals, driven creatives, wholehearted entrepreneurs, and world changers of all sorts trust to partner in creating their biggest selves and baddest lives.


You don’t need to be fixed; you’re not broken. What you do need is a megaphone for your internal wisdom, a chisel to break away the old beliefs and habits that aren’t benefiting you anymore, and a walking stick to make the ascent of your learning curve easier on the knees. Coaching with SB is all of that and more.


While a coaching collaboration can feel like strapping on a jetpack, SB’s intensives are the nitro in the fuel line. Learn about her signature program, The Innerling Intensive, and how meeting your core crew of internal influences, your Innerlings, will super-charge not only your coaching collaboration but all your years to come.


Join SB as she reflects on the complex, delightful, enlivening and, yes, messy business of being a human focused on values, growth, and how going inward is critical to creating a better world. You’ll get some actions items along the way, too, approaches to creating your bigger life and badder self now.

Should we talk?

Talk is cheap, and this time it’s free! We know a lot of people offer free consultations that are just long, painful sales presentations. That’s not what this is. Let’s just talk and test the fit, no strings attached.

We can all benefit from the perspective and collaboration of a person who has tackled similar learning curves, and accompanied hundreds of others doing the same.

Meet SB...

Known equally for her laughter and her cogent questions, SB is the business coach who takes a holistic view and the empowerment coach who brings the work down to earth. While her psychology degree from UNC-Greensboro and coach training from the Coach Training Alliance shaped her understanding of human behavior, her innate abilities to create cohesive pictures out of seemingly disparate parts and see people from the intersection of what is and what could be are what makes coaching with SB a particularly unique experience. From the brick ranch on a creek in Southwest Virginia that she shares with her partner, Theresa, and their dog, Kiera, SB collaborates with those seeking their bigger selves and badder lives across the country and around the world.

Expecting discomfort and making room for joy

Last year, I made a note to myself on today’s calendar date. It says, “Expect discomfort, make room for joy.” Today is my birthday. Before you go assuming that the expected discomfort is about the number of times I’ve spun around the sun – today marks 43 years since I...
