Clients Say...

Pianist and DMA, Juilliard School

Astrid has a great gift of seeing the beauty in each person and allowing their strengths to come through.

— JC, New York, NY

Director of Learning and Engagement, OPERA America

[Opera America hired Astrid to lead two workshops for our 2013 Leadership Intensive.]  Astrid’s background in nonprofit management and ongoing work with performing arts organizations meant that she was able to tailor the leadership workshops to the specific needs of opera leaders.

Professor of Music at Portland State University


I came to Astrid looking for ways to more effectively organize and pursue my work and life goals. As a creative artist, educator, arts administrator and entrepreneur, I was struggling to find a more fulfilling balance between my work, creative and personal pursuits.

Astrid's coaching provided many helpful ideas for prioritizing and time-management, but it went far beyond that. Because her work is grounded in helping each client identify their core values, working with Astrid helped me create my own framework for evaluating my life and goals. Her insightful listening, thoughtful questions and repertoire of strategies, skills and actions helped me chart a path to meeting my career challenges. While her assistance in examining my habits, values and thought patterns helped me to see where they had served me, and where they might be holding me back from reaching the next level of success. It felt good giving myself permission to access the kind of thinking & skills that CEO's and business leaders use. Plus it was fun!

I would highly recommend Astrid's coaching for other creative artists. I have incorporated many of the ideas we discussed into my own teaching. Working with Astrid made me feel inspired, validated and well-equipped to continue my journey toward my life goals--with a growth mindset, a stronger commitment to living my own values and the tools and encouragement to go for "great."
