What is a Professional Life Coach?
A Professional Life Coach is a trusted mentor who can help you identify and uncover what keeps you from reaching your fullest potential. It is a one-on-one relationship that provides a supportive and non-judgmental space to help you create what you want for yourself. You can find a Life Coach to help you strategize and acquire the tools you need to achieve your goals. It consists of steps to help you identify and reframe your thoughts and attitudes. It can also help you break negative habits, acquire new methods of identification, and take action to achieve your maximum potential!
What is coaching from a Christian perspective?
I am a believer in the Holy Trinity of Christ. God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. I believe that through Jesus's sinless life and sacrifice, we are able to accept him into our hearts, and have a relationship with him through the Holy Spirit. It is through his loving kindness that I coach and encourage you. Simply stated, coaching you from where you are to where God wants you to be. I will interject Godly principles and wisdom when feeling led to do so. I do coach any Christian denomination and I will also coach a non-believer. However, If you are a non-believer please understand that I will still coach using a christian perspective.
Why choose to coach with me?
As your coach, I will hold you accountable to your goals. I will encourage you to push on, help to keep you motivated and moving forward.

What types of people have Life Coaches?
People from all walks of life work with professional Coaches to help attain their goals. Life Coaches work with people in all areas of their life including relationships, career, finance, health and more. Working with a personal Coach is not limited to any type of person, but is best for those who want to take initiative in their own life. People who get a Life Coach are committed to a more fulfilled life and are willing to do the work needed to get there.

With life coaching you can live a more balanced and enhanced life, and make your dreams come true!
What happens in a Life Coaching Session?
Each session lasts 60 minutes and is tailored to the client, and will vary based on individual needs. I currently provide sessions via the phone only, as I believe this provides more focus for both the coachee and the coach. You are able to sit and relax and talk without any distractions. I am able to tune in to your voice and listen attentively for details that will help me move you forward. In the beginning, we will discuss what you are committed to accomplishing through our work together and we will begin to create a plan to achieve your goals. Periodically, I will give you assignments to help direct your progress. We will work together to acknowledge obstacles, explore alternate perspectives and celebrate successes. With the conclusion of each session, we will revisit your goals and evaluate the next steps that are needed to achieve these results. Also as part of your coaching journey, I am available between sessions via email, for additional support or questions.
Do I really need a personal Coach, can't I just do it by myself?
Life coaching can take you above and beyond your own personal limitations. More often than not, people try to achieve their greatest potential, but don’t even realize what stands in their way. A personal Coach can offer an unbiased and objective perspective, and can help you realize your patterns and habits. Most people experience that they are more efficient when working with a Professional Life Coach and that this provides the opportunity for them to better realize their potential. Life coaching can make your dreams attainable and will give you support and encouragement along the way.
How is Coaching different from Therapy?
While the life coaching I provide can be therapeutic, it is not therapy. Coaching is distinct from traditional therapy because it is not designed to address psychological issues. While emotional issues may arise, the primary focus of life coaching is to help you identify your goals, achieve them, and develop constructive habits and skills. There is little emphasis placed on the past with coaching, but instead the focus is on creating what you want now and in the future.
What is your cancellation policy?
I require a 24 hour notice to cancel all sessions. Please be sure to contact me if you will not be able to make your scheduled appointment in order to avoid being charged for the session.
How long do people generally work with a Life Coach?
To experience the effectiveness of a life coaching program, I suggest clients make an initial two-month commitment (6 sessions). At the end of the 6 sessions, we will evaluate progress and discuss options for continued coaching if necessary.
Is personal life coaching confidential?
What we discuss will be held in confidence and not shared with others. However, our discussions are not privileged for legal purposes. The privilege of confidentiality that exists for the clergy, therapists and attorneys is not granted to coaching professionals. That said, life coaching is a confidential process, and your personal information will always be protected.
