What exactly is life coaching?   This is a great question.  However, like many great questions it is not easy to answer.  Explaining life coaching is like describing a taste or a smell.  It is something best experienced rather than described.  But to not offer some sort of answer will not do.  So here goes.

Life coaching is the opportunity to spend time with a skilled, curious questioner who is 110% unconditionally focused on you and what's important to you.  As a coach my job is to listen to you and encourage you through questioning, providing activities, and sharing intuitions. It is involves facilitating  your empowerment in overcoming barriers, achieving your dreams, and living a more fulfilling life.

The truth is we are all naturally curious, creative and whole.  However, we are not perfect.  At times we are subject to  self-doubt, lack of imagination, and prone to poor self care. This is where life coaching comes in.  Life coaching is not problem solving.  It is not advising or consulting.  It is highly skilled listening and question asking.  Coaching sessions are about what you want to explore. 

The heart of my coaching is all about getting you to reflect on what's important to you, what you need to be satisfied, what's working and not working.  To do this  I ask a lot of questions and listen intently.

Life coaching is a powerful way to free yourself from unhelpful habits, thoughts, behaviors, and beliefs that undermine your change initiatives.   Coaching offers consistent, independent support, accountability and feedback for when your best intentions get overtaken by the stress, distractions and circumstances of your daily life.

Life coaching is an active partnership that you control. It is always focused on what’s most important to you. Together we find the most natural way to help you make the breakthroughs you want and work quickly to help you get clear on the best outcome, create a plan, develop priorities, and then move forward.

Life coaching is not something you have to invest in and hope it works out down the road. If you are not getting a ton of value out of every single session or you might want to for a new coach.

The Process

30 Minute Sample Session:  The coaching process typically begins with a free 30 minute sample session.  I like to think of this as the "try it, you'll like it"session.  Many people are truly amazed at how much powerful coaching happens during this 30 minute session.

Discovery Session:  The Discovery session is an hour long general exploration of values, an introduction to some of the language of  coaching and an opportunity to share concerns early on.

The Coaching Sessions:  The actual coaching takes place in one or more 30 or 45 minute sessions. Since I want to make coaching as accessible as possible you may choose from one of several options.  (There is a discount for committing to multiple sessions).

 - Single 45 min session:               $40
-  Book three 45 min sessions:  $100
