What happens in coaching?
My coaching process generally involves three phases.
In the first part, we define your starting point – where you are right now. We take a current personal inventory, including a personal narrative and history of the key points of your journey so far. We may also do a personality assessment and targeted interviews with people who know you well.
For the second phase, we identify your coaching targets. Whether it is increasing personal wellness, making your key relationships even better or creating customized life goals, we identify what your top priorities are for our coaching work.
After doing the vital pre-work of the prior two phases, we get to the third phase of the coaching process: getting you to your destination. This is where we roll up our sleeves. We design a custom plan that will get you there. We look at any hurdles unique to you, and collaborate on how to move you past them. We use my five key tools: Setting, Getting, Letting, Creating, and Leveraging. And we engage the powerful process of accountability in coaching to add rocket fuel.
The foundational package is a three month engagement where we meet twice a month. Packages can be further customized according to what you want to accomplish.
A 30 minute complimentary consultation is available. Coaching sessions are primarily by phone.
If you are not satisfied with your coaching outcome, your fee will be fully refunded.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
I sometimes have women tell me, “I know it’s important, but I don’t know if I can make time to do this kind of work.”
But this is exactly when you may need it the most.
Women are great at putting out fires. We are incredible at figuring out what needs to get done, and then doing it. But what would it look like if instead of reacting to the multiple competing demands on your time, you intentionally designed a life strategy that focused your energy on the things that matter to you most?
That’s what a coach can do for you. I know, because my coach has helped do it for me.
Consider it one of the best investments you can make in yourself.

A primer on coaching
Coaching is a revolution in helping people grow. From the 18,000 member International Coach Federation to Harvard Medical School’s Institute of Coaching, coaching has now established its professional identity.
What coaching is not:
~ It is not therapy, counseling, or medical treatment
~ Its aim is not to find problems to work on
~ It is not about diagnosing or treating illness
~ It does not focus on uncovering pain and past history
~ It does not assume that the client is passive and helpless
What coaching is:
~ It is a proactive way of uncovering people’s strengths and skills
~ Its focus is on finding actionable paths for positive growth and change
~ It looks to solve challenges, not simply to identify them
~ It is an equal collaboration between client and coach
~ It is goal oriented: “What steps will I take to grow and/or improve?”
~ The client is seen as someone who is her own best agent for growth and change
