Want to confirm your type?
Ready to better understand yourself and figure out how to get past your challenges in life?
I'd like to help you.
Have you already taken my free personality test but still feel unsure? Or, are you pretty clear on your type but confused about how best to use that knowledge?
Either way, working with me one-on-one is a great way to confirm your type and then, more importantly, to actually do something with that information.
I used to offer one-time "personality profiling sessions," but I realized after a while that I didn't like it.
Yes, I can make a good guess about your type after a single profiling session together. But it felt hollow to just tell someone their type and then expect them to go off and do the truly hard work on their own of dealing with that type's weaknesses and most common barriers.
As a coach, I've made it my mission to support people in defining and living their life purposes, and simply telling someone their type and sending them off on their way didn't feel like I was doing that.
Here's why I believe an ongoing relationship is important rather than a one-time session:
The first option is a personality profiling session.
If you've already taken my free personality test and you still feel unsure about your type, a profiling session would be a good next step.
This is a 90-minute session focused purely on determining your Myers-Briggs type. These are on Zoom and cost $197 USD. I'll ask you a series of questions and help you figure out which type best fits you. You'll be able to ask any questions you have, and you'll leave with some advice on how your type best makes decisions and feels energized.
First, we all have a ton of baggage around our sense of self.
This includes standards around race and gender, how our parents told us we "had" to be, what we saw in movies, what we were told a "good person" looks like, etc.
So, we often unconsciously cover up our true selves with many layers of protection.
The best way for me to uncover someone's core self (and true personality type) is to work with them regularly as a coach and help them peel away some of those layers.
If you have a lot of armor up, even the very best personality profiler won't be able to accurately figure out your type in a single profiling session.
Second, knowing your type is nice; but, far more important is what you do with that information.
A lot of people will take a test to learn their personality type but then continue going through life exactly as they always have. What was the point?
If you choose to explore coaching instead, I can help you uncover your blind spots and figure out what's holding you back from the life you want.
For example, in my case, I thought I was an INTP for many years, and it was huge to realize I was actually an ENTP (more on that here if you're unsure too).
Learning that truth helped me understand that I hadn't just been avoiding social events because my mind is naturally introverted (i.e., something outside my control).
Rather, I'd been doing so because of other things that are very much changeable: social anxiety, overly-harsh judgment of other people (especially feelers or people I labeled "shallow"), and neglect of a core part of myself (since I'd so heavily prioritized my analytical mind over my emotional awareness).
Knowing my real type allowed me to take specific action to turn all that around.
By getting to know how your specific mind works, you'll better understand what you need to be happy, what motivates you, what makes you lose energy, how you can best make decisions, and more.

P.S. Here's my free educational series on the #1 skill I recommend all types learn to make the most of your life—especially Thinkers.
How can I work with you? How much do you charge?
Thanks for your interest in coaching with me. Below you'll find information on several types of offerings: one-on-one coaching, group coaching & workshops, and my blog.
I've put a lot of thought into the most logical, fair, and ethical way to price my services.
Conversations about money tend to bring out a lot of feelings (on both sides), and I want to approach that complexity with the nuance and care it deserves.
So, this will require just a little more work to understand than "pay me $X."
If you're curious, I wrote a whole philosophical article where I break down in detail how I arrived at this set of policies. (All this has evolved a bit too since I wrote that post back in early 2021.)
I intentionally aim to serve a variety of people in my practice—including groups who have typically had less access to coaching (e.g., 43% of my clients are people of color).
At the same time, this is my primary source of income, and I need to be able to run a sustainable business.
So, here's the model I've arrived at:
Sliding-scale (variable pricing):
I offer the same service at multiple price points based on need (honor system, no proof required). But paying the highest price you can afford allows me to offer much lower-priced coaching to people who couldn't otherwise afford it.
Pay for sessions in bundles of three:
This simplifies the bureaucracy and makes our relationship feel less transactional. If paying for three sessions at once feels challenging for you, let's talk about it.
First session is free:
Let's make sure we're the right fit for each other. So much of coaching comes down to trust, chemistry, and connection. Each coach has a different style, so I want to make sure you feel comfortable with mine.
Commit to at least two sessions per month:
Roughly half my clients see me weekly, and half every other week. I sometimes make exceptions to see people less frequently, but that slows our progress and makes it harder for me to stay up-to-date with your life.
Most importantly, let’s be real with each other:
I’m not a big faceless corporation charging one fixed price for a product. And you’re a complex human with a lot of different types of expenses in your life. Let’s have a real authentic conversation about what you can afford that’s fair to both of us. Let's come at this as a team trying to solve a challenge together.
My Sliding Scale
Please do your own research if you'd like a comparison for coaching rates.
But I can tell you that $200-500 USD per session is a common price charged by my peers with similar experience and credentials.
Below are my rates for a 50-minute session (again, this is the same service being offered at each price tier).
Here's what else you'll get by working with me:
- I'll start off by sending you a detailed questionnaire to help us get to know each other—and, more importantly, to help you get crystal clear on your goals for coaching.
- I'll customize my coaching style based on your personality type (I'm very familiar with several powerful typing systems).
- This isn't one-size-fits-all advice. We'll co-create a unique personal growth trajectory just for you. I'll bring in techniques from Co-Active coaching, Hakomi counseling, and much more—whatever is most appropriate for your specific challenges.
- You'll be the first to hear about my new projects, tools, Mastermind groups, and other offerings.
- You'll also get access to me via email between sessions (for example, if you'd like me to review your resume or answer a time-sensitive question). And, as we work together, I might share worksheets, articles, or podcasts that make me think of you.
