Anxiety Coaching For Entrepreneurs


Entrepreneurship Is Not For the Faint of Heart


Your emotional and intellectual capacities will be stressed to their limits. 

To maximize your opportunities for success, you'll need to stay focused, motivated, productive, positive, and upbeat. You'll need to lead with confidence even when you feel weak in the knees. You'll need to prioritize your mental and physical health so you don't buckle under the pressure of relentless uncertainty and change.

Growing a business is hard work. But it feels infinitely easier when you have the support of an experienced coach.


We Empower Company Leaders


Our clients are founders of early-stage tech companies or professional service firms who want to harness their energy toward a "next level" business goal. These talented people are wise enough to know they have blind spots that need to be addressed with the guidance of a skilled professional. They understand the profound impact of improving their focus, motivation, interpersonal skills, or communication abilities.

The world's greatest athletes have coaches. Why? Because a coach is an attentive advisor who can help you see the big picture and avoid making poor decisions due to feeling stressed to the max.

About Suzanna Gardner, CPCC

I have over 12 years of experience as a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach working with individuals from many different backgrounds and cultures, helping them to find balance and pull from their strengths. I have a passion for building successful and entrepreneurial teams and coaching them to success.

With over 15 years experience as a team leader in a corporate, high pressure, sales driven environment, I understand the demands of a corporate environment, and the ways in which clients can exceed them.  I utilize a goal-oriented yet compassionate approach to help my clients set and meet their own goals. Because of my unique experiences, I can understand the powerful relationship between job satisfaction and personal fulfillment.

I work with my clients through humor, patience and a little bit of "pedal to the metal". My approach is tailored to the individual client, but it broadly involves a framework of discovery, goal setting, values exploration, strength identification, and accountability. I focus on positive, inspirational, forward-moving change understanding that healthy personal and career lives can co-exist.

I love brainstorming with clients to explore different perspectives in order to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals. Together we get to your ultimate goal and create a plan you can be excited about.  I create a permission-filled space to guide you through uncertain waters and will be your partner through the journey.

What is coaching?

  • Action-based personal exploration and guidance
  • Support built on the principles of positive psychology
  • A safe space to work through personal insecurities and questions
  • A sounding board to help untangle complicated situations
  • Guidance and accountability to help you prioritize your actions
  • Dedicated time to work through issues strategically and make a plan

How Coaching Works

The initial Assessment and Goal Setting session is two hours long and will help you and your coach understand your goals and personal style.

The length and frequency of follow-up sessions depends on your goals.

Most sessions are 30-60 minutes and occur weekly or biweekly. 

There is no up-front commitment involved. Coaching continues until you have achieved your goals.


The difference between therapy and coaching:

  • Therapy is about solving a specific problem, such as enduring a difficult situation (like a divorce), or treating a medical disorder (such as Panic Disorder, depression, or chronic pain).

  • Therapy is healthcare service. As such, it can often be paid for via insurance policies or HSA accounts. It may also count toward your healthcare policy’s deductible.

  • Therapy sessions are booked in advance and cannot be canceled within 48 hours (exceptions made for reasonable circumstances, such as illness and other reasonable).

  • Therapy may take place online or over the phone, but Initial therapy appointments must take place in person. California law only permits therapists to treat individuals within the state of California.

  • Therapists are ethically and legally bound to maintain strict confidentiality with their clients. This Doctor-Patient confidentiality is legally recognized and protected.

  • Coaching is about achieving a specific goal, such as seeking better balance, realigning priorities, or getting a promotion.

  • Coaching is a professional service. As such, it may be written off as a business expense or may be paid for by your employer.

  • Coaching sessions have no cancellation policy.

  • Coaching takes place over the phone. Clients may be anywhere in the world.

  • Coaches operate according to the International Coach Federation’s ethical principles, and as such, “maintain the strictest levels of confidentiality with all client and sponsor information”. However, there are lesser standards for the protection of information.

  • Coaching costs $600 for 4 sessions, or $200 for individual sessions. No up-front commitment is required.




Video and phone sessions are a convenient solution for people who can't find a specialist in their area or would rather not drive across town to an appointment. Research has proven that remote and in-person sessions are equally effective.
