Individual Coaching with Me
Are you feeling stuck and not satisfied? …wanting something different but I’m not exactly sure what that other thing looks like?
Or maybe you’re at a threshold in your life (like wanting to reinvent your career, plan your second act, start something new, explore possibilities…) and you want a partner through the in-between uncertain place…?
Years ago, we pondered what we wanted to be when we grew up. I went through a phase of wanting to be a Park Ranger. At a certain point, we start wondering what we want to grow into during the second act of our lives…and how to make the mark we dream of.
I can help you
- Figure out what soulful success with meaning and purpose in your life looks like
- Realign with your authentic values, gifts, passions and power (your True-ness)
- Find your flow / overcome areas of struggle that hold you back from being the powerful leader you’re meant to be
- Cultivate resilience, courage and creativity to get you unstuck & embark on a new beginning
- Shine a light on where you are now and map a path forward toward making a sustainable difference
- Awaken/get reacquainted with your brilliant inner wisdom
- Renew your spirit and rekindle a sense of discovery, adventure & originality
Wherever you are on your journey, there’s a path forward. Where you are today is a perfect jumping off point.
If your current life/work isn’t feeding your soul, let’s figure out why, create a map and get you headed in a more spirit nourishing way.
Perhaps an HBDI® Discovery Experience diagnostic survey/curated session is a good first step?
I’ve been coaching leaders around the world for many years at executive levels and am also certified in the Amazing Career™Coach methodology by Kathy Caprino specifically designed to “help women leaders dig deep, discover their true work, and illuminate the world with it.”
Since everyone is unique, each coaching journey package is tailored with a varying number of sessions, kinds of assessments, range of support and accessibility between sessions (phone, email, messaging) and other curated resources so it fits you to a tee.
Following our initial complimentary discovery conversation, I’ll put together an individualized coaching program proposal that outlines recommendations and investment. To help guide you, here are a couple of sample programs:
Embark (Three Month / 6 sessions) – get the clarity and commitment you need to make a change and the support to embark on the journey
Sojourn (Six Month / 12 sessions) – a solid option for accountability and sustained support to build your capacity and momentum on the path to soulful success
Explorer (One Month Unlimited Access, renewable as needed)
I provide coaching via Zoom around the world for both self-pay clients and those whose organizations wish to sponsor coaching for their leaders.
Ready to get going? Bravo! Let’s do it. Want to hear more/see if we click? Book a complimentary 30 minute consultation.
The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life…

Last Monday afternoon I received my performance evaluation. It was by far, the best of my career… I credit my work with you over the past few months as the difference. I cannot begin to tell you what working with you has meant to me. Just knowing that I have you to talk to and bounce ideas off has meant the world to me. My manager was highly complimentary about the changes and growth he observed over the past few months.
I believe that I am a much better manager, thanks to you, my coach. I see myself in a much different light and my confidence has improved by leaps and bounds. I could go on and on.
Cynthia, thank you for just being you… You give so much of yourself to others. I am most grateful for my share.

Retreats in Naturally Nourishing Settings
You can’t go deep until you slow down. ~ Tess Gallagher
Step out of the particle accelerator of life to rejuvenate and rewild. Quiet your mind and listen to the whispers of your soul to find clarity on what’s next.
Would you like to find your people? Do you crave connection with seasoned women on the same wavelength? I invite you to retreat with me and an intimate circle of accomplished (and did I mention fun?) women. Nourish yourself with higher level conversations in a community that lifts one another up. Then, take new energy, focus and inspiration back to make more of a difference in your life and work.
These thoughtfully curated experiences celebrate nature’s seasonal rhythms in gorgeous settings you won’t want to leave. Reconnect with yourself, others and Mama Nature while renewing your path to soulful success.
What seems to happen when persons with prepared minds find themselves in beautiful settings, they are more likely to find new connections among ideas, new perspectives on issues they are dealing with. ~ Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Huge thanks to the amazing wise and witty women leaders who joined me in the gorgeous autumnal Blue Ridge Mountains for Flourish: A Fall Retreat for women who want to clarify their True North, connect authentically with others and lead inspirationally in uncharted times. I so enjoyed stepping back and recharging amid nature’s healing beauty with you!
Thanks for the wonderful adventure into ourselves. You’re the best! ~ Caroline M.
For those who missed Flourish and Elevate Your Year before that… stay tuned for future retreat announcements. Circles are small by design, so hustle to save your spot if one speaks to you.
GreenLeaf Retreats are a time to step away from your life and see it from a distance – to slow down and listen to what your life is saying to you. They create the physical and mental space for real renewal and transformation, and coach you on tuning in to your needs and your best whole self. No forced conviviality here (dinner in your spa robe vs. socializing? – excellent option!)
We’ve all heard how stress beats up our immune system. I invite you skim this article for some DIY nature-oriented tips for building resilience.
I’d love if you’d follow me on Instagram @GreenleafCynthia for a naturally mindful pause in your busy day. There’s usually a pretty interesting discussion going in the comments.
And thanks for doing good! I donate a portion of GreenLeaf Retreat proceeds to Together Women Rise, a powerful grassroots community of women and allies dedicated to achieving global gender equality and transforming the lives of women and girls in the world’s toughest places.
I just attended Cynthia’s Elevate Your Year nature retreat, and I LOVED it!! I don’t think I realized how tired and burned out I was and how much I needed time around other ladies and some good ole Mother Nature. Cynthia is a wonderful retreat leader and facilitator.
Cynthia is a master of creating the perfect environment for deep dive soul searching and defining the path you are supposed to be on. You are following your gifts and I feel rearranged exactly as I needed to be. Lovely lovely lovely. Deep thanks.
As a leader Cynthia is thoughtful and charismatic.
A lover of our natural world.
She will help you find “just the right balance” of personal care and renewal.
A wonderful way to refresh and renew. Cynthia is a wonderful facilitator and member of the group. I would highly recommend her retreats. A time for self-care, connecting with nature, and being with like-minded women is so healing. Thank you Cynthia!
Personal One-on-One Retreats
Maybe your schedule doesn’t click with a group retreat, or you’d like a more private curated experience?
A Personal Transformation Retreat with me is a perfect way to step away from life’s relentless demands and information tsunami. When was the last time you gave yourself a purposeful pause? If not now, when? It’s time to hit the pause button and listen to your authentic self.
Is life and work still fun and energizing? If not, life’s too short. Let’s rediscover your personal purpose and passions. Let’s make your eyes sparkle again.
It’s YOUR time to thrive!
- Reboot and replenish.
- Renew your perspective.
- Reconnect with the Beautiful You that is strong, vibrant, smart, fun, full of life… She’s still there.
- Reawaken your path to purpose that nourishes your soul and creates significance.
Personal Retreats are a great way to jumpstart a coaching series or to cap off a coaching journey.
Many women reach a time in their lives when they feel lost or uncertain or at a crossroads… in need of a pause. Perhaps you’re exploring a transition, marking a big birthday, ready to finally pursue a big bold dream or plain old burned out. Or maybe you’re a leader with a very public life and crave the confidentiality and privacy that will allow you to be open and seen… If this is you, then a private coaching retreat may be what your life is asking you to do.
Since our human minds and hearts are extremely responsive to the conditions around them, we can change our outlook, thoughts and feelings given a supportive context and insightful dialogue with another human – like a highly attuned women’s coach. When lovingly seen, heard and witnessed we’re able to change, to shift, to revitalize at a deep level – especially when that dialogue happens in an inspiring natural setting, unplugged from the fray.
Join me at a naturally beautiful, soul soothing hideaway to get clear on what you most want from this one wonderful life. The tranquil Blue Ridge Mountains await you for healing, inspiration, self-care and transformation. Rest, reflect, and take time to breathe on a customized retreat designed with you and only you in mind.
As Kevin Cashman writes in The Pause Principle – Step Back to Lead Forward, One-on-One Coaching Retreats offer unique “key opportunities that can unlock our hearts and minds, open us up, and connect us more deeply with others so that we can create something new and different. All too often, we allow ourselves to be carried away by our busyness…Tethered to our smartphones, we are too caught up and distracted to take the time necessary to sort through complexity or to locate submerged purpose… Pause, the natural capability to step back in order to move forward with greater clarity, momentum, and impact, holds the creative power to reframe and refresh how we see ourselves and our relationships, our challenges, our capacities, our organizations and missions within a larger context.”
Reach out to explore a bespoke three-night Personal Coaching Retreat crafted just for you. Fees start at $2,898 USD plus travel and lodging.
