A Collaborative Adventure

Coaching is a collaborative process built on mutual respect and authenticity. I trust that you are the expert in your own life, and once you clarify your vision, we can build the capacity to realize it. Through attuned listening, powerful questions, direct communication, and appropriate challenges, we will explore barriers (sometimes self-constructed) and build plans to help you live the life you desire and deserve.

How Coaching With Nicki Monahan Can Help?

 My mission is to support you to navigate transitions, meet challenges with resilience, live authentically, and achieve greater personal happiness. A proud member of the 2SLGBTQ community, I understand the ways in which systemic oppression can dampen our lives. And I believe that personal transformation fuels social change.

Areas Of Expertise

2SLGBTQ Coaching 

As an out and proud member of the 2SLGBTQ community, I have a special passion for helping other queer folks navigate life’s challenges.


Women In Business Coaching

Whether you left the job you had , hate the job you have, experience imposter syndrome as you rise through the corporate ranks, or dream of starting your own business, we can get you there.

Life Transition Coaching 

If there’s one thing in life that’s inevitable, it’s change. A significant life change creates a perfect opportunity for coaching.


Educational Coaching  

I work with students to harness their potential, achieve success, and discover career paths. I partner with faculty to navigate daily challenges and to maintain their joy and sense of purpose.


I've Been There

My path has included my share of obstacles and life altering events. Career change, cross country moves, heartbreak and divorce, a serious cycling accident and, five years later, brain surgery. Each life transition was an opportunity to rebuild and reset my compass. My road to recovery from brain surgery allowed me to reflect on life’s second chances, and grab hold of every precious minute of life. A meditation practice of over twenty years was invaluable as I managed physical pain and learned to ride the emotional roller coaster that often accompanies brain injuries. Coaching with survivors of traumatic injuries draws on my personal experience, while coaching with LGBTQ partners works to overcome negative messages that the world still sends our way, examine how we internalize them, in order to live with greater authenticity and pride.
