Personalized coaching to help you live your best life
In the throws of trying to figure out your life or career, it can be hard to find clear-cut direction.
You might find yourself second-guessing your decisions, questioning what you should be doing, or if there’s a better path. You may feel lonely or isolated trying to figure it all out.
That's where coaching comes in.
Based on your personal needs, career or business challenges, I meet you where you are and come up with a customized game plan to help you reach your goals.
I'll help you clarify what you want and overcome obstacles so you can achieve your goals.
Coaching is most effective when it’s highly customized to fit your needs. While no two coaching relationships are the same, we’ll work together to:
Clarify your short and long term goals.
Identify immediate and achievable action steps that will help you move you forward quickly.
Uncover fear or doubt that interferes with the changes you want to make in your life.
Address negative perspectives or patterns that no longer serve you or the pursuit of your goals.
Here's what the process looks like
We start with a little prep work. After we’ve met and both agree working together makes sense, we book your first session and l’ll send you a custom pre-coaching questionnaire. It will include about 25 questions about your goals, history, life, career and/or business. This provides me with a bit more insight to make our first call most effective.
Then we’ll have our first session. In our first 60 minute coaching call, we'll discuss your current pain points and hangups and create a customized strategy for the next three months. You'll receive 3-5 action steps to complete over the next week, along with a game plan to accomplish them.
I'll follow up with a recap and your action items. I create a Google Doc with an outline, notes, and links so that our game plan is clear and concise. We’ll also use this Doc to note your progress, wins, and insights. I’ll update it after each session and share a link after our meeting so you can refer back to it later.
Then we’ll check in weekly to see how it's going. Over the next three months (or 12 sessions, whichever comes first) we’ll meet once a week. We’ll review your progress, address challenges, and determine next action steps. You’ll gain momentum within the first few weeks. This process really works!
Coaching is for you if...
You're ready to take action.
In order to make the most out of our time together, you must be willing to put in the work and show up prepared and on time for our meetings.
WHAT’S A LIFE COACH?
As a coach, I empower you to set goals and establish accountability for personal and professional success. I guide you as you articulate your aspirations, clarify the choices before you and create action plans to achieve your goals. You set the agenda, and I serve as an objective sounding board to help keep you focused and on track. I help you break through old barriers and develop new practices so you can reach your desired goals.
HOW’S COACHING DIFFERENT FROM THERAPY?
Although coaching and therapy can complement each other, coaching is not therapy. Through coaching you develop strategic actions to help you move forward. Coaching does not attempt to explain behaviors, delve into your past, or identify pathology.
WHAT HAPPENS IN COACHING?
Before you can go anywhere, you have to know where you are starting. I will send you forms to help you clarify and help me understand what you want and need out of coaching.
Following this, we will start our regular sessions (usually once a week for an hour for 1-3 months). I’ll ask you questions and lead you through exercises related to your goals. By the end of each session, we will develop assignments to give you a clear sense of what to focus on in preparation for our next session. I'm also available for email check-ins in between sessions. If you truly commit to the process, you will find that the real benefits of coaching show up between the sessions.
WHO HAS A COACH?
Anybody who wants to get to the next level in their life or career. If you want to make a change in your life and want help along the way, hiring a coach can help you commit to living life to the fullest.
WHAT’S YOUR COACHING STYLE?
As a coach, it’s my mission to create a safe and respectful environment in which my clients feel both supported and challenged as they work towards their goals. My coaching style has been described as warm, direct, and fun. I push my clients out of their comfort zones but not beyond their limits. I'm there to celebrate their successes and to support them when they stumble. I also love to laugh and believe that humor is necessary on the road to success.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM COACHING?
Although coaching is different for everyone, many clients report common outcomes, such as the ability to set and accomplish their goals. In addition, my clients report feeling happier, healthier, better communicators, improved relationships, and greater ability to effectively manage stress.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PHONE COACHING?
Coaching over the phone allows you to open up more fully and provides you with flexibility in your environment. Coaching over the phone also allows you to work with me regardless of the city or state in which you live.
WHAT ABOUT CONFIDENTIALITY?
Everything we talk about is 100% confidential and unless you tell someone that we are working together (or give me your express permission to do so) no one will know that we have spoken.
HOW LONG DOES COACHING TAKE?
There are no long-term commitments. You can leave at any time if you're not getting a ton of value out of every single session. However, if you're serious about achieving your specific goals, I suggest you commit to at least three months of coaching.
