A New You Awaits

I worked with Patrice for a few months and really appreciated the way she asked questions – always steering me toward my own truth and my own answers – and listened deeply. The questions were thought provoking, even stopping-me-in-my-tracks. I remember one especially raw session when I was feeling disappointed in my own performance at work. She challenged me. A door opened for me that day and the stress stayed behind. I’ve struggled with articulating what’s on my mind and I thank Patrice for helping me to do so

Coaching with Catapult

I get it. Sometimes our friends and family can’t provide the support we need. You don't have to be stuck.

I will create a safe space to address your challenges. I will empower you to free yourself from fear, mediocrity, and dissatisfaction so you can step into the truth of your greatness.

I don’t just help my clients with problems in their life, I help them to transform their understanding of what’s possible.

Not sure what you need? That’s okay. Life may feel overwhelming and you can't imagine it being different. If you are here, there is a part of you hoping it can. It can.

You need someone who will listen deeply. You deserve someone who cares about your health. I will show up for you so that you get immediate insight and direction.

Let's exhale and figure it out.

My Beliefs

EVERY PERSON IS CONNECTED TO THEIR TRUTH, EVEN IF THEY DON'T KNOW IT YET

EVERY PERSON IS WHOLE EVEN IF THEY FEEL BROKEN

EVERY PERSON HAS MORE POSSIBILITIES THAN INITIALLY IMAGINABLE

EVERY PERSON IS RESOURCEFUL

Being coached by Patrice is a calming, peaceful, profoundly impactful experience. She helped me to remember things that I was not aware I had forgotten. She assisted me in creating next steps for my life that have been empowering, fun and transformative

Meet Your Coach - Patrice Ford Lyn

I know it can feel scary to take risks.

I have taken many risks and felt the tremendous emotions that accompanied them. 

I have packed up and moved to a different country more than once. I left a "secure" job to do the work I love more than once.  I even left a bad situation and bought an open ticket to Brazil having no idea how long I would be there or what would happen next.  

And, I have also felt the paralysis of fear that kept me stuck for years. 

There is no shame in fear.  It is okay to be scared, but it is important to be courageous.

Let’s get you some peace of mind.

It’s time

We need space to hear ourselves and believe in new possibilities. We crave restoration, rejuvenation, and clarity.

I have been on both sides of the coach - client relationship.  I understand the vulnerability it takes to share your experiences, fears, and desires.  I commit to meeting you where you are and creating a safe space for you to explore your truth and create a plan of action. 

I see your greatness even if you can't.  I show up and coach you fiercely - like your life depends on it, because it does.  

My training as a certified professional coach and reiki practitioner, along with my experience as a skilled facilitator/trainer, enable me to support you powerfully. I have worked in strategic planning and organizational development for more than 20 years and personal transformation and wellness for more than eight years. During my decade of experience as a management consultant I worked with other leaders to build their organizations while supporting them through their own personal growth.  I have planned, facilitated and participated in numerous personal transformation retreats, coaching conversations and group coaching series.


Patrice created a warm environment but also challenged you to push yourself to your edge and asked good questions to get you thinking. The small group setting was ideal. Recommend!

My Clients 

My clients come from all walks of life.

They are from different countries, various ethnicities and religions, genders and career paths.  

What unites them is that they each feel a disconnect between the lives they have and the lives they want. Something is telling them there is more, there has to be more.  It can be different. It must be different. They are right.  

When we get tossed about by the waves of life, we can find solid ground again.

Even folks who feel life is good can have these disconnects. It’s okay for good to not be good enough.

It’s okay to want your life to be great.  Why not have a great life?


You know that I coach, but you may not know that I have a coach. Her name is Patrice Ford and she combines intelligence and compassion in an approach that has helped me immeasurably over the last few months. Seriously, you can imagine how much I think of her and the work she does if I am providing a testimonial for someone in MY line of business

Special note

I have a deep appreciation of the ongoing pressures faced by marginalized groups and the ways these truths can manifest in their lives. 

It is vital that members of marginalized communities, those working with marginalized communities and/or in trauma rich environments have safe spaces for reflection and rejuvenation. 

I want to make it absolutely clear that the disability community; immigrants, people of color and various nationalities; LGBTQIA and gender non-conforming individuals: members of religious minorities; and members of polyamorous and non-monogamous communities have a safe space with me.

Still curious about coaching? 

 TAKE THE FIRST STEP

I don’t know how people move intentionally from one level to the next without coaching. Patrice called out my faulty beliefs about myself and my ability and challenged me to discover what I really wanted. With Patrice’s guidance and partnership, I have been able to name my fears and doubts and take bold steps in the direction of my deepest desires.”
