About Me
Karen Macklin

I am a Personal & Leadership Coach certified by the International Coach Federation (ICF) at the PCC level. In addition to my integral coaching training through the New Ventures West and Aletheia schools, I also bring to coaching a decade of teaching yoga and mindfulness (500 E-RYT), as well as training in Trauma Awareness, NVC (Non-Violent Communication), Social Justice, IFS (Internal Family Systems), Hospice Care, Ayurveda, Western Neuroscience, and Eastern Philosophy. As a professional writer, I’ve also written on many of these topics.

I have extensive experience working with large corporations, and have taught mindfulness techniques at business such as Twitter, Genentech, Asana, Kaiser Permanente, Second Genome, and Salesforce. I also bring to coaching many years of work in creative industries, including publishing, theater, and higher education.

HOW I WORK

In our sessions, I will create a safe and supportive space for you to investigate deeply the blocks and questions that are arising in your life. I will offer inquiries and practices to help you understand the landscape of your heart and mind more deeply, and to open into possibilities in every area of your life. My many years of training in mindfulness practice allows me to be completely present with whatever is coming up for you, and consistently guide us on a path to your highest potential.

I support people with both Personal Coaching and Leadership Coaching.

Personal Coaching

You’re looking for support moving through a life transition, making decisions about your future, assessing or improving current relationships, or still processing a past event or situation that keeps coming up in your present patterns. You want to evolve and grow and live with more integrity, but you need some help to get you there. I can help you find your center, make decisions, communicate better, and grow into your most authentic life.

Leadership Coaching

You are in, or moving into, a position of leadership in your work or community, and you need support in growing into your new role effectively and authentically. Great leadership means moving from a space of confidence, creativity, connection, and compassion. I also have a background in Mindful Communication (trained in NVC) and diversity/social justice training. I can help you navigate challenging dynamics and lead with integrity, focus, and intention.

You may be looking for support across both planes! I work in an integral way, so nothing is left out.

PACKAGES

I offer packages of 5 or 10 (1-hour) sessions. For new clients, I recommend the 10-session package because it gives us the time needed to do the real work, and it’s also the best economical value. I also offer single Breakthrough Sessions for those who are looking for short-term, specific problem-solving support.
