Life | Career + Relationship Coaches in San Francisco
May Bartlett, CPCC
Life + Relationship Coach
I’m a dreamer and I’ll try almost anything at least once. This combination has led me down many unique paths. I’ve experienced the film world, the environmentalism world, the philosophical world, you name it. All of which has led me to the juiciest, most exciting world of them all. The human world. I became a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach because I believe that most of us aren’t living at our full potential and I want to provide people with the right tools and guidance to reach that potential.
Style + Philosophy
I coach using a peer-to-peer model that empowers you to take your wellbeing into your own hands. My philosophy is that you are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole, meaning that you contain all of the answers within you. The problem is that these answers are often buried deep because it’s too easy to become misguided by negative societal and internal pressures. My job as a coach is to help you re-align with your core values and learn how to navigate life’s challenges from a place of authenticity and self-confidence.
My style as a coach is organic and tailored to you as an individual. I will help you connect with your core through somatic exercises, guided visualization, perspective work, and mindfulness practices. I will support you as you become aware of your current beliefs and consciously choose who you want to be in the world. I will help you quiet your inner critics and show you what happens when you allow your inner mentor to step into the driver’s seat. As a result, you will be able to start making decisions and taking actions that align with your values. Whether you feel stuck in your career, have a dream you can’t seem to make a reality, or feel dissatisfied even though you seem to “have it all,” I will partner with you on your future success.
Hi, I’m Jess, and my intention is to help you develop the qualities that already lie within you to allow you to be a stronger leader. Becoming a leader is all about cultivating a self, and an environment which invites people in, and inspires people to follow you. The heart of leadership is emotional intelligence – empathy, connection, navigating conflict, and somatic presence.

I have an authentic and playful approach with my clients. Every leadership journey looks different – I like to gather everything I can about you to find the root of how to help you integrate into being a better person overall. You have strengths that have allowed you to come as far as you have. There will also be habits, ways of being, and ways you live in the world that can be shifted to allow you to be more awake.
We work on conflicts, practices, and situations that are alive in your field currently so you can have the tools to better steer your day-to-day interactions. Leadership coaching is just like practicing a new craft or sport – it takes repetition, and in the moment replays. The Enneagram allows us to understand our motivations, triggers, and leadership style. It also gives us insight on the people we work, and interact with, so I also teach you how to work and communicate better through understanding the perspective of others. This helps tremendously with navigating conflict, and difficult conversations.
