I coach to help end human suffering. I help children and parents talk to one another more effectively. I help teachers de-stress. I help individuals ask and answer their deepest questions. I COACH

Ask me anything

Hi! I’m Stephanie Smith from Baltimore, MD. I help people experience the joy of communicating and expressing themselves wholly, while learning to listen deeply.

I listen intently and ask questions that are meant to help you answer your own questions and solve your own problems. As a teacher and a mom, I understand how hard it can be to juggle so many issues and schedules, especially now, during COVID. I help families break down communication barriers through group coaching and I work with professionals as well.

Essentially, if you are human, I can help. That is what coaching is: human connection and self-connection that leads to action.
