How I work: Life coaching is about helping people have more satisfying lives. Life coaches deliver their services in a variety of ways. Some coaches act as boot-camp sergeants, some as cheerleaders, and some as “salespeople” of a dream life. My coaching style is somewhat different. I provide a supportive atmosphere, using encouragement and focused attention to facilitate creativity, insight, and forward movement. While I clearly and unambiguously will give you the benefit of my perspective and experience, I will not be pushy, overwhelming, or aggressive. I will be your advocate as you discover and design a life that offers freedom, balance, opportunity and an open space to create possibilities. We are a team, and I’m committed that together we accomplish your goals.
Here are just a few of the topics clients bring to coaching sessions:
Counseling vs. Coaching: I am a licensed counselor and a certified coach. As your life coach, I am contracting with you for coaching services only. Please keep in mind -- you are employing me for coaching services, not for treatment of mental illness or emotional disorders. If necessary, it is your responsibility as a client to seek counseling or psychiatric assistance from a local, licensed counseling professional or psychiatric doctor. If you need counseling, a psychological assessment, or psychiatric help, appropriate referrals will be provided.
Here are some basic differences between coaching and counseling:
Don’t get me wrong – There are times when counseling is the best choice and there are times when Life Coaching makes more sense. Think about your own situation and decide what works best for you. If you’re not sure, feel free to call and we can talk about your particular circumstances and decide together what seems to be the best fit.
How Coaching Services are Delivered: Sessions occur by phone. We can set up each session in advance or schedule sessions individually on an as needed basis. There might be times when you would prefer a face to face session. At such times, we can meet at my office.
Payment: After talking with me to make your appointment, you can then pay for your session(s). Payment should be sent through PayPal prior to the start of the session and serves as a confirmation of your timeslot. You are free to pay for your sessions individually prior to each session –or-- you can bundle the sessions and pay for anywhere from 3 – 6 sessions at a time. Clients who pre-pay for bundled sessions get first choice of available timeslots. After you have scheduled an appointment, you may go online to pay for your session. Here are the fees:
