What is Coaching?
Coaching provides a stimulating environment to spur growth. Coaching helps you identify and remove the obstacles to your success. Coaching allows you to create actionable plans with detailed steps for achieving your goals. The coaching process helps you maintain accountability and make dynamic adjustments to sustain growth.
Perhaps you want to become more assertive, or you need help figuring out a relationship at home or at work. Coaching can help you reach those goals.
The key to growth is to have a clear plan for what you need to do. I will help you articulate your goals clearly, and facilitate coming up with a clear action plan.
How is Therapy different from Coaching?
Therapy is for solving a specific problem or for dealing with ongoing difficult situation. Coaching is for getting more out of life and achieving your goals. Clients often make the transition from healing therapeutic work to energetic goal-oriented coaching after a stable foundation for impactful growth has been laid.

Please call me so we can discuss your specific questions or click Request Appointment below to schedule your phone consultation. I will receive your appointment request and coordinate with you via email. I look forward to meeting with you soon!
What to Expect
Initial Phone Consultation
We will have a 20-minute phone conversation to assess if I can best meet your needs at this time. If I think there may be someone better suited to help you, I will refer you to another qualified and respected professional.
Before the First Appointment
Once an appointment has been scheduled, I will email a confirmation along with necessary forms for you to complete at home and bring to the appointment. The paperwork covers basic information I need from you including contact and background information, reasons for seeking therapy or coaching, and your informed consent allowing us to work together.
The First Appointment
We will spend 75 to 100 minutes together to review your paperwork, discuss your therapy or coaching needs, and most importantly allow time for me to get to know you so the work can begin. We will also review practical concerns such as payment, confidentiality, cancellations, and phone calls between appointments.
If we decide to work together, it will be important for you to commit to at least 4 appointments to set the foundation of our work. We will choose a consistent time each week to ensure the best basis for safety and trust. Appointments are typically 50 -60 minutes once a week. Based on your specific needs, appointments may be scheduled every 2 weeks or even once a month.
