You’re limiting your future options.
Getting a job and living on your own was the plan after college but you feel discouraged.
You refocus your efforts with to-do lists and it only seems to further drain your energy and enthusiasm.
How to find a guide with no emotional strings attached?
Step into better fitting shoes.
We all hold onto things we’ve outgrown because they feel familiar, even if they don’t work anymore.
Outgrowing how you’ve always done things is like running in shoes that are too small for you.
Stepping into bigger shoes can be tough; there may be blisters at the beginning, but soon you’ll see how much faster and farther they allow you to go.
School was going just fine… until it wasn’t.
They were always such bright kids, but somewhere along the way, they lost their luster.
Lately, your teen has begun to sleepwalk through school.
“Does going to class really matter?”
They “don’t see the point” in what they’re learning.
They’re distracted and it seems to make studying impossible.
Get back on track.
Together, we’ll create the space for you to identify your “goal”.
We’ll find the steps you will take, and how you’ll work toward your goal.
You’ll decide, with my help, how you want to be accountable to yourself.
Being successful isn’t a race; it’s about moving forward at your pace.
Knowing how to use options for ourselves, and those you care about, can be a game-changer.
Hi, I’m Genevieve.
I’m looking forward to meeting you. One of the greatest pleasures in my life is meeting new people and learning how they connect with others – and me.
Our stories are an important component of our lives. I can share about backpacking in eastern and southern Europe before the end of the Soviet Union. How a tiger’s actual roar shook my bones. Realizing eating my breakfast brings me joy. Oh, and fist-bumping President Obama.
Each of my stories has required a strategy. I had to be organized and learn to communicate in the style needed for the situation… and get used to being uncomfortable.
My stories help me recognize what goes into a good strategy. Yes, fist-bumping a President is memorable. But helping you learn how to live your daily life with more purpose and joy makes my inner smile bigger.
I’m eager to hear where you are right now.
What I Offer

People Are Saying
New College Grad
“I’d never heard of an accountability partner until I worked with Genevieve during college. I’m so happy she introduced me to the concept. The hourly check ins with Genevieve as I was working on a large project kept me motivated and focused, as well as helped me to work at a pace that ensured my project would be completed on time without burning myself out.
I have incorporated this practice into all of my large projects after working with her, and I even serve as an accountability partner for colleagues all the time.”

High School Senior
“As a senior, it’s scary because I’m transitioning to college next year. I know it’s coming but didn’t know what that entails. Working with SSGP has helped me figure out what I know how to do, and what I need to ask help with.”
“Genevieve helped us put together a fantastic workshop on the transition to college. While a lot of our other workshops focus on the college application process, Genevieve’s focus was on how the academics, social life, and living situation are different, and gave our students an edge about how to prepare for the change. She helped us develop a custom workshop agenda that included a great array of resources and materials, and was very willing to adapt them to our event and audience.”

“Genevieve did a really amazing job of making sure she covered everything needed and also was a very easy person to talk to and ask questions. I think that her talking about the preparation of college and knowing what to expect of college was very helpful for me since I am only still a freshman”
High School Senior
“Through multiple zoom calls and follow-up emails, Mrs. Genevieve Griffin made me feel like I was absolutely ready to begin my college interview process.
During our work together she handed me the tools I needed to be able to become comfortable with being interviewed by alumni of distinguished universities.
She showed me how to create the space to forget my anxious thoughts and present my true self to individuals who may seem intimidating at first glance.
I appreciate her kind approach. What I learned about communicating with what Mrs. Griffin has shared with me today will continue to pave the way for my future career after high school.”
