About Sherpa Colleen


MY NAME IS Colleen

I am a Reiki Master and Certified Holistic Life Coach. I really enjoy working with people through transitions in their lives. Using my training and intuition, I can help guide you to a more fulfilling life. Let's start this adventure together! I coach over the phone, in person, and/or via Skype.




"With every human encounter, there is a chance of a miracle." 


"Pronoia is the suspicion that the whole world is conspiring to shower you with blessings." 






"Colleen did a wonderful job of fluidly navigating the conversation between long-term aspirations and goals to short-term steps and decisions. She was not prescriptive, but rather, she was conversational. She posed questions that helped frame my perspective on decisions that are relevant to me today. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with her and would recommend her to others."


"I am going through a slew of transitions in my life right now, and Colleen and I talked about the changes. She helped me to look at each area of my life and encouraged me to identify what the priorities are in each area. It was enlightening for me to then look at all the crazy activity and see where all my efforts are going, and whether they line up with those priorities."


"Colleen and I discussed how to identify the goals I was hoping to achieve and methods to achieve them. I came away with two pages of notes and a plan to build a map for getting to where I want to be in two years, as well as for laying groundwork for my career in the 3–5 year future."


"Colleen was absolutely great. She made me feel at ease to open up and have a real conversation, even about the more stressful things. She really understood where I was coming from and what I was about. Colleen opened me up to new ideas, gave me solid advice and tactics I could use that fit my lifestyle. I'm excited to talk to her again and fill her in on my next steps!"



"My coaching session with Colleen was incredibly helpful. It was very personable — felt much like a conversation and that she was connecting with me as an individual. During this conversation, I felt like I had a true thought partner in thinking through future career planning."


"Colleen added perspective to some life issues I was having that helped me to not be hard on myself plus gave me constructive ideas on what to do to make a positive push forward. Her directness, honesty, and clarity gave me insight and a gentle nudge."


"Colleen was very easy to talk to and made several good suggestions of how I can precede with my dilemma. After I got off the phone with her I felt a weight lifted."


"Colleen has this way about her that is a cross between sophisticated and professional career planning, and this ethereal almost shamanic spiritual path guidance that is just what I need at this stage of my life. She helps me organize my own motivations and listen to parts deep in my soul that I've been disconnected from for years. It helps that she knows me and that we've worked together / known each other for years. She can alert me to motivations within myself that she can easily see, but I can't. And I think that's part of what coaches are really good at — helping us know ourselves better."
