Welcome to Momentum Coaching & Consulting
My candid coaching will challenge your stories so you can get out of your own way. You'll emerge more alive, fierce, free, and certain of your worthiness.
So, what do you want to do with your one wild, precious life?
Hi! I'm thrilled you're here. My name is Jill Yashinsky-Wortman, and I'm the Founder and CEO. More important, I'm a mom, wife, hobby chicken farmer, and more. You may have guessed that I'm also a coach, but that isn't where I started.
For almost two decades, I worked in higher education leading well being and crisis response teams. I was repeatedly promoted. While this was exciting, I found myself increasingly distant from what I loved: incredible conversations with college students exploring their newfound freedoms and discerning their values.
Then, life changed. We lost our third baby mid-pregnancy. I took leave, grieved, and decided to rise from the ashes. I left my "career" and relentlessly chased my passion for coaching.
Five years later, I'm living my most incredible life, coaching people toward the dreams and lives they want. Read on to learn more about my coaching and if I'm the right coach for you.

Am I the right coach for you?
Only you can decide.
Here's more about what it's like to be coached by me:
Powerful coaches aren't afraid to ask hard questions, call you on self-limiting stories, and hold you accountable.
I built strong, caring, connected relationships with my clients which allows me to support and cheer them on AND call them on patterns of behavior and false beliefs that are holding them back.
I hold clients accountable to what they say they will do between coaching sessions AND provide tools to overcome barriers that get in the way.
I challenge clients to go beyond comfort into their growth zone AND help ease self-imposed burdens of perfection.
I inquire about deeply held thought patterns, encouraging exploration of what else is possible AND the options that could exist if we look just beyond their current perspective.
Gifted coaches serve by providing opportunities for clients to recognize and claim their unique gifts, talents, and purpose.
I serve clients by asking questions that elicit their values and name when their values are being stepped on. In doing so, clients are able to reclaim what is important and clearly identify the next right steps for them.
I'm deeply curious about who my clients are in their wisest, most true selves. I am trained in supporting clients to reconnect with their most authentic self, the one that hasn't been quieted by societal rules or external pressures.
I hold myself and my client as equals. We walk together, me offering powerful questions and curiosity, the client bringing their inherent self knowledge, reflections and expertise on their own lives as we work collaboratively toward the client's goals.
I believe emotions are indicators that something is important and encourage clients to lean into what they are noticing to develop a greater awareness of themselves and how they want to be in the world.
Great coaches have extensive training and education, and participate in continuous education to maintain their certifications, just like many professions.
I'm a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) by the Co-Active Training Institute, one of the longest established and most rigorous coach training programs in the world.
I've trained with author Tara Mohr in her Playing Big Facilitator program focused on helping women expand their leadership, overcome self-doubt, move beyond good student behaviors and cultivate confidence.
I'm a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the International Coaching Federation, the second highest credential awarded.
I'm certified in Appreciative Inquiry, a positive psychology and strengths-based approach to leadership development and change.
I've coached clients around the world, from college students to retirees, moms trying to re-discover themselves to women leading the C-suite, Co-Active coaching certification students to coaches with years of experience, and people in almost every industry imaginable. I'd love to get to know you and give you an opportunity to see if I'm the right coach for you.
