In effort to protect our community, we are offering all services outside, online, or indoors with masks.  We will respect your personal boundaries, so please let us know what works best for you!

Location & Timing

Life Coaching, Mentoring, and Rites of Passage programs are offered at local parks and wilderness areas in Santa Cruz County, Monterey, online, or by phone. If weather does not permit for outdoor sessions, we offer coaching sessions at client’s homes or in coffee shops. Tutoring and Academic Coaching sessions are offered at student homes, libraries, coffee shops, local parks, or online (wherever is most convenient for the student). Sessions are typically 1-2 hours and may occur 1-3 days per week.


We accept payment in advance, monthly, or at the time of each session. Payment can be made through Venmo, Zelle, check, or cash. Our pricing depends on the type of service that we offer. For more information, please contact Deanna through our contact form or by phone, 831-234-1874.



Scholarships are offered to those who apply with a strong desire and need for coaching, guidance, mentorship, and support. A scholarship essay interview is required. Please contact us for more information.
