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.
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.
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 (one to four sessions/month) where I will 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.
My clients come to coaching because they want to change something in their lives or careers and they want help along the way. By hiring me as their coach, they are committed to living their lives to the fullest.
As a coach, it is 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.
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.
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 country, city or state in which you live.
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.
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.
I work with individual clients Mon-Fri 8am-5pm pacific.
