Working with us


Wild Courage Coaching is designed to help you grow from the inside out. We challenge you to trust the unknown and find new possibilities in it.


Wild Courage Circles are a place to slow down and connect more deeply with yourself and others. Meeting monthly, in small groups of 6-10 people, we create space to ask important questions and listen to your heart’s response.


Wild Courage Research is coaching-based research for start-ups and courageous businesses who want to turn into the unknown, and design products and services for an emerging future.
