General Questions

Is coaching right for me?

If you want a change of some sort – whether it is changing or creating a habit or behavior, improving your work-life balance, changing your career, improving your relationships, being more creative at work etc – AND you are ready to take steps to achieve it, then you will benefit from having a coach.
If you are looking for somewhere to simply vent about your past or your circumstances then you will likely waste your money on a coach.

How does coaching work?

You want something to be different and the first step is to clarify exactly what that is. After you fill out a few assessments, we work together to co-create a plan, which consists of new behaviors, goals and commitments, as well as explore potential obstacles and limiting beliefs. Then it’s just a process of closing the gap from where you are and where you really want to be. We meet weekly and at the end of each session we agree on what steps you’ll take that week. You’ll either succeed at taking those steps, or you won’t. When you do, we spend part of the next session celebrating the win, learning about what worked and then we take it to the next level. When you don’t succeed, we learn from what happened and come at it again from a new angle. We repeat this process of action and learning until you reach each goal.

What kind of person works with a coach?

I coach smart successful people who know enough to be healthier and happier than they currently are. I coach people who want to thrive, but realize that they don’t have the energy to keep doing it all. I coach people who have good intentions but life just keeps getting in the way. Whether it’s because of life transition, out of balance priorities or too much stress, many of my clients feel burned out and have fallen into patterns of skipping exercise, emotional eating and plane old not living up to their potential. They know it doesn’t have to be this way and they’re ready to make a change.
