How it works

My one-on-one coaching sessions are typically 1.5-2 hours long, and take place either in person in New York City, or online.

My approach is highly practical and action-oriented, so I'll break your complex goals down into bite-sized chunks, and keep you accountable for them. I'm a strong proponent of finding balance and nourishment alongside pursuing your ambitions. 

Here's what you can expect from me: 

Before each session

You'll email me about your progress, wins, and challenges, so that I can come prepared to address them. 

During the session

We'll talk through the previous week(s), I'll address your biggest problem areas, and introduce new concepts and material for the next week. 

After the session

I'll send a follow-up email with key takeaways, action steps, and exercises for you to do. 

In between sessions

I'll check in to keep you accountable, provide feedback, and answer any questions.

 

 
 

Nice things my clients have said

“Working with Kening was hands down, one of the best decisions I’ve made. Personally and creatively, Kening has helped me not only work through my writing blocks, but really tune in and trust the voice that has always lived within me. Grounded in habits and tangible goals, Kening has moved me on track to a healthier and more successful me.”

Yify Zhang, songwriter
 

“Kening is an absolutely invaluable resource. Her work with me has overhauled the way I approach personal and professional organization, and consequently made my life better in more ways than I can begin to enumerate. I’ve struggled with organizational issues all my life, and the systems she’s helped me put in place are the first that have ever made a difference for me. I recommend her work without reservation.”

Helena Fitzgerald, writer

 

“During the first half of my first session with Kening, I couldn’t even articulate the help I needed—and almost convinced myself that I didn’t need help at all, though I’ve been paralyzed for years by the daunting task of getting my brand together. By the end of the session we had nailed down the reasons why I didn’t have the brand I wanted and what my blocks were—and we were both excited by the breakthroughs we had just made. That one meeting rejuvenated my interest in taking control of my career and within days I had taken real actions to improve my brand.

Kening is extremely knowledgable in what hinders creatives, what stops them from advancing their careers and targeting their dream clients, and how to help them move through those challenges in a systematic, painless way. She broke everything down into manageable steps and exercises, and now I’m on my way to relaunching my website with a firm grasp on the business I want to be with a plan on how to keep it relevant, fresh, and active in the year to come!”

Let's chat and see if we're a fit

I'd love to set up a phone call or in-person coffee with you (if you're based in NYC) to talk about your goals, background, and see how I can help.
