My passion is helping others find ease and joy in everyday life and I help my clients feel more…

  • Empowered to be a leader in their life, making choices that are best for them and setting boundaries when necessary.
  • Grounded when things and thoughts get chaotic.
  • Intentional about what they are doing and why they are doing it.
  • Happy and able to get a different perspective when they feel stuck and without hope.
  • Clear about what is important to them and what they value in their life.

I’ve learned how to do this for myself and now get to help others with the many tools I have gathered as a/n…

  • Master Certified Life Coach 
  • Nature-Based Coach
  • Equus Trained Coach
  • Educator
  • Special needs parent

I love sharing these simple but profound tools and lessons with others who are needing more ease and joy in their lives. I love helping women learn how to become leading ladies in their own lives as well as helping parents who are finding that parenting isn’t quite what they expected it to be. Discover more About Me.

How I Can Help You:

1:1 Coaching Session

You. Me. 50 minutes of my undivided attention aimed at helping you with issues or situations that are keeping you stuck. I do sessions over the phone as well as in-person sessions if you are in Austin, TX. In-person sessions can be nature walks, coffee or lunch sessions if you’d prefer that to my office. Read more about these sessions.


Without coaching, this photo of me in Iceland would have never occurred because I was too anxious, too controlling and too limited in what I thought was possible in my life. There isn’t an area of my life that hasn’t been helped by coaching – personal, relationships, parenting, you name it! I “live it to give it” each and every day which then allows me to help my clients. There’s nothing I love more than getting an email from a client sharing how they are using what they learn to better their lives! Pure joy for me!!

Margaret is an amazing coach in large part because she is so authentic and present.  Her honesty and enthusiasm for life are contagious and I am so grateful that we connected.  She has helped me slow down enough to really notice what is going on and to appreciate and engage in my life more fully.  I am so grateful for Margaret’s wisdom and willingness to support me on this journey.

Having just finished Margaret’s Summer Survival program I can attest to what an amazing, generous, kind and insightful coach she is!

Virtual Fire Sessions


Fire is seriously one of my favorite coaching tools!!


Fire only gives feedback, not judgement. 

Gather some materials, a match and it either lights or it doesn’t. No story other than what works and what doesn’t work.

Building a fire is a wonderful metaphor for how one goes about things in life. 

What would life be like if we looked at things as feedback rather than judgement? BAM!! Try something and it either works or doesn’t work. Instead of creating negative stories about what happened, try something new and different and see what happens! Zoom out of the moment, tap into curiosity about the situation as a whole and allow for all of the possibilities.


These are really cool sessions! They are done via Skype or FaceTime, usually last about an hour and are done in the comfort of your own backyard!

Head HERE to learn more or to sign up to experience the power of fire!!
