Gestalt Coaching Services

Gestalt coaching is an experiential, creative, and client-focused process occurring organically in the relationship between coach and client.


The focus of my coaching grows out of the initial concerns and goals of the client and is designed to be relevant and useful within the context in which you work and live. My intent in helping you to create new lens for examining these initial needs is that in partnership we seed your growth as a whole person; developing a unique creative process to use your knowledge, talent, your spirit and ultimately, your presence to face future challenges and opportunities from a place of grounded awareness and wise choice; do your best work and live your best life.

Meet Frances.

to a healthier,
more compassionate world.

Contributing to a healthier, more compassionate world of higher consciousness through the principles of Gestalt Theory and Values.

Coaching each client toward becoming wholeheartedly the person(s) you choose to be FOR the world; as you walk with dignity, competence, and resilience IN the world.


Through my 50 years of experience, I continuously learn new and practical use of Gestalt principles; each time a client expresses satisfaction and/joy in collaborating with me.

“She has been coaching my co-leader and me for over a year now, and I know that we are getting something more than her Organization Development Lifetime Achievement Award brain. When we work with Frances, we get the fullness of who she is, and it makes us take different and more effective action."
