  • As a coach, I have had the privilege of helping clients flourish across key areas of their lives: health, work-life balance, and personal and professional development. While I love working with all kinds of people in coaching, my specialties are aimed at helping my clients with the following five types of goals listed below.  (Want more information?

    I now incorporate Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT, also known as “tapping”) and other energy psychology work with all my clients. This powerful, evidence-based technique helps to heal old emotional wounds. These can cause current-day emotional distress, such as depression, anxiety, shame and guilt, limiting thoughts about your life potential, and inflammatory health problems. I teach my clients to use EFT independently because because this skill is empowering and life-changing.

    How Does Coaching Help?

    Coaching is forward thinking and solution-focussed. It can be therapeutic, but it is not psychotherapy. Read more: Comparing Coaching, Consulting & Psychotherapy 

    My clients usually come with a primary goal in mind, but many are inspired to accomplish others as we work together.  Here are a couple of examples:

    Andrea’s uncanny ability to uncover limiting beliefs, reframe old narratives, and incorporate current human behavior theory has increased the effectiveness of my consulting practice and supported the positive integration of work/life. TR, Organizational Development Consultant Read more.

    Working with Andrea in coaching has had a significant impact on my life. Having someone to help keep you accountable, motivate you, encourage you, and set a path forward is incredibly helpful. Without coaching, I would be unfocused and wandering to find direction. Coaching helped me set and achievement goals that I wouldn’t have otherwise…DA, Change management consultant and educator Read more

    If you’re looking for someone to inspire new insight, creativity, or a renewed enthusiasm for your professional goals, I highly recommend Andrea Meier. She is an exceptional mentor and coach and was an invaluable resource during a recent transition period in my profession and business. She approached each meeting with genuine thoughtfulness, empathy, and care and provided a wealth of resources. It’s clear that Andrea is very knowledgable and was keen to introduce me to some unique strategies for overcoming obstacles that I have since shared with friends and colleagues.  JT, RN, MPH, Health care advocate

    As your coach, my job is to partner with you to:

    • envision an attractive and compelling future that calls forth your best efforts
    • develop a mindset that values incremental progress so you can avoid the traps of perfectionism and procrastination
    • identify your psychological strengths and inspire your creativity
    • design strategies to deploy your strengths effectively under changing conditions;
    • stay focused on your goals
    • champion your efforts, and
    • celebrate your successes to keep you inspired and in action.

    Accountability is an agreement to do something between sessions (AKA” homework”) that will move you toward your goals. This key element in coaching also includes your plan for how and when you will tell me you have completed your tasks. Its purpose is to keep you focused–not to make you feel guilty if you are unable to do what you committed to in a session. When needed, I work with you find ways to overcome the predictable obstacles that impede your progress and regain your momentum. My goal is to end each session with you feeling optimistic about your ability to stay organized and energized to do what is needed to succeed in achieving your goals.

    Working with a Coach is Energizing and Enjoyable

    I take my work with clients very seriously, but making the process energizing and fun for them is just as important to me. If you don’t like laughing and smiling, then I’m definitely not the coach for you! I want my clients to bounce out of bed on the mornings we have our sessions because they know that they will have a great time progressing towards whatever future they want to create.

    Coaching is Convenient

    Save time getting the support you want. No need to travel anywhere. You can work with me where ever you have access to a phone or computer. I do most of my coaching virtually, using phone, Skype, or Zoom. (If you live in Boulder and want to meet in person, that can be arranged, too.)
