COBALT Coaching helps perfectionists of all stripes get unstuck and into action. We offer a safe haven for you to uncover what really matters to you and to bring your best work into the world.

We get underneath the perfectionism and the procrastination, take on the inner critic, and replace self-doubt with confidence and clarity.

We get things done.

It doesn’t have to be so hard.

Too many smart, passionate, and hardworking souls worry that they’re not good enough, or that it’s too late, or that they will fail if they go for what they really want.

As perfectionists, we beat ourselves up relentlessly, believing that if we could just get everything under control, ourselves especially, things would finally get done.

We’ve become overwhelmed by our environments and derailed by life’s daily distractions, living in a virtual community of online networks that promote and feed our addictions.

Our most powerful contributions remain hidden, trapped behind walls of ideals and expectations that are impossible to scale. Again and again, brilliant achievers fail to complete the work that matters most to them, even at the cost of their self-respect or peace of mind.

Upgrade from Control to Leadership

We crave control in order to feel safe. But control over anything, even ourselves, can cost us dearly in a world of constant demands.

The neuroscientific evidence of how our brains light up from triggers like phone alerts is staggering. We are addicted to the quick hit, unable to focus or flow.

It can be intensely frustrating.

We think we need to manage our time. We think we need to be more organized, have better habits, get up earlier. We feel stuck.

But it’s our attention, not our time, that needs to be freed.   

Avoiding failure at all costs, we’ve become unwilling to take action on what really matters to us. Worry fills our minds, stealing precious resources and disconnecting us from our own life force.

We are withering on the vine of our isolation. We are afraid to leap. And we choose safety over change every time.

There is another choice awaiting you.

You are not alone.

Through our extensive experience in the most competitive and publicly visible industries in the world, we’ve learned the value of kindred spirits, bonded community, and a place to both belong and stand out.

COBALT Coaching is a no-judgment, no-bullshit zone. You are safe here, and you don’t get to hide. It’s a win-win.

We LOVE to celebrate wins and we have a knack for generating them. We understand the power of momentum, of building a tribe that’s greater than the sum of its parts, and the gift of working with the best in the business.

In the COBALT Coaching community, this is the level at which we play.


Our vision is to liberate the genius at play within every perfectionist, cultivating authentic self-expression through congruent action, with clarity and courage.

We aim to end the confusion, overwhelm and loneliness that so many brilliant beings experience, watching the world through their internet portals and aching to make sense of it all.

It’s time to do the work we are meant to do, free from the judgments, fears and constraints that have paralyzed us in the past.
