Executive Coaching


My goal is for you to not need me when you reach your next challenge.

Controversial for a coach? Maybe. 








I work with leaders to (re)examine their relationship between work and life in service of showing up more fully as themselves.
This includes founders, people struggling with burnout, people going through job or career changes, and those struggling to find boundaries that work for them.
I focus on growth and overcoming challenges through the lens of development, not performance. We work together to uncover the root challenge at hand, and align on a development path that helps you build new skills to address it (not just band-aid the current situation). My work is to not only equip you to move through the current challenge, but to sustainably engage with future challenges with a new set of skills and resources. 

I am a trained professional coach with experience using mindfulness, the science of emotions, the inner critic, parts work, and somatic experiencing. 

I love the container Nalani creates. I always feel safe, seen and supported with whatever I come into our sessions with. Her presence and questions help me accept that despite uncertainty, I can still feel whole. I always seem to unfold with ease and make lots of new connections in our time together.

Nalani really helps to guide me through my own thoughts. As a PhD student, I often feel overwhelmed as I deal with a fire hose of information....she guides me through how to think about it [differently]. She provides a safe space for me to see which parts of my life are serving me and which aren't.
