I'm a friendship coach.
Yep-- it's a thing.
As a women's coach, I focus primarily on female friendship and communication. I conduct my own surveys, create research-based strategies, and teach women how to have better platonic relationships with one another.
Out of my love for all things female friendship, I founded Friend Forward a digital community that provides coaching, workshops, articles, and connection events for women looking to create and maintain true friendships.
It's more than feel-good content; it's legitimately changing women's lives.
I recently signed a book deal with Hachette to write a book that explores the function of conflict in female friendship. The book will be available in bookstores near you in early 2024!
