I'm so glad you're here
I'm Julia Firestone
Hi there! I'm an ICF-Certified Coach, facilitator, and social impact strategist with over a decade of experience in nonprofits, corporate social impact, and startups.
I coach advocates, activists, and social impact professionals to become more effective leaders in their organizations, move through big life changes, and achieve personal and professional goals.
If you're on the precipice of a big life decision - about your career, relationships (romantic, family-related or friendships), moving to a new place, or other changes, I'd love to accompany you through a Clarity Coaching Session.
We'll identify the choices available for you, uncover limiting beliefs, and I'll share tools like visualization and empowering questions to help you gain clarity and confidence in the next right move.

"Working with Julia helped me put words to the devaluing that I had been experiencing but not quite sure how to explain. She also helped bring a ton of clarity to what I wanted next out of my career."
- Thamarrah Jones
"I'm about to take an exciting step forward in my leadership journey and I used so many of the tools Julia taught me to decide when it was time to assess my current org and the new ones I was exploring, to talk about myself and the communities I want to serve, and to advocate for fair compensation."
- Kamilah Reid-Burrell
"Julia provided concrete recommendations on how to overcome the specific barriers I came across in the job change process and listened attentively and compassionately to many of the doubts and insecurities I shared. Thanks to her help, I was able to confidently network in a new field and recognize the value and skills I brought to the table as an interdisciplinary social impact professional. "
- Yolanda Botti-Lodovico
