Coaching

I am not currently accepting new life coaching clients due to workload in other areas of my life.  I will update this site when that changes.  Below is a description of the services I provide once I am able to accept new clients.

Life Coaching is a collaboration between two people. The role of the coach is to facilitate the exploration of needs, motivations, desires, skills, and thought processes to assist an individual in taking action that will bring about real and lasting change.  Together, we set appropriate goals and determine how best to measure progress.  As a coach, I encourage a commitment to action and the development of personal growth and change.

My professional coach training includes:

  • Member of International Coach Federation
  • The G.R.O.W. Coaching Model
  • The Interactive “Wheel of Life”: Aligning Vision, Values, Action, and Achievement
  • Emotional Intelligence: 7 EQ Tips for Increasing
  • The Art of Inquiry
  • Coaching the Psyche and the Soul of High-Achieving Women
  • Successful Coaching Relationships

 

I provide individual, confidential coaching in the following areas:

Goal Setting Strategies

I offer convenient, telephone-based coaching for people who have goals in mind but need a clear and specific path that will ensure they reach them. Here are some examples of clients who desire goal setting strategies:

“I’ve wanted to start my photography business for years.  I take lots of pictures and I know what I’m doing, but years have gone by and I’ve not made any progress……….”

“I make plenty of money and want to put a lot more in savings than I am.  Each month I make a plan but I never stick to it.  I’m afraid that I will lose my job before I get my act together and start putting some in savings…….”

“I have been working in a job that does not align with my values and interests.  I know what I want to do and I have the skills but I’m not sure how to go about getting the job that I want……one that aligns with my values……”
