My Story

My name is Kathy McCabe and I am a Martha Beck-certified life coach who helps clients find more joy, empowerment and purpose in their daily lives. I am a “recovering” lawyer and people-pleaser, a “Work-in-Progress” mom — and an imperfect evolving human. I’m also a small-business entrepreneur. I am thrilled to combine my love of coaching with more than 20 years of professional business experience. The tools I use have helped me positively transform my life and my clients’ lives. Let's work together to help YOU find your Real Joy!
