"When you listen generously to people, they can hear the truth in themselves, often for the first time." -Rachel Naomi Remen
What does coaching help me with?
Commonly reported outcomes from coaching work include improvements in work/life balance, financial stability, relationship satisfaction, professional direction, and overall wellness. As an artist, my specialty is helping you tune into your own innate creativity, an energy that I believe provides both foundation and guidance for deep, positive change in your life. This kind of creative empowerment integrates intellectual, physical, and emotional levels of awareness with a variety of practical focusing tools to move you steadily toward your vision.
How is coaching different than therapy?
Perhaps the biggest difference is that coaching does not analyze or seek to understand the past events of your life. Rather, it is a values- and vision-based methodology for achieving both internal and external goals of your own choosing. Through the coaching process, you learn to re-write any personal narratives that are currently producing unwanted results. In this deliberate and methodical re-telling, your own perspective shifts, allowing you to see new options and more clearly chart a course forward from where you are to where you want to be.
How long are coaching sessions?
Individual sessions are 90 minutes, and are accompanied with at-home assignments and correspondence via email as needed.
When and where is coaching available?
In-person coaching sessions are scheduled by appointment in my private home office in Long Beach, CA. Remote sessions are conducted via Skype or phone. I have a flexible schedule and can accommodate most time zones.
How many sessions do I need?
Coaching work is cumulative, with the greatest results generally reported within 2-3 months of weekly sessions. However, everyone is different, and a program that is shorter or longer than this, or at a different frequency, may be more appropriate. We can discuss this and make a decision together during your free 60-minute consultation.
How much does it cost?
Depending on the time frame and frequency that is most appropriate for your situation, I will be happy to give you an accurate quote during your free 60-minute consultation during which we discuss your specific goals. If I don't think I'm the right coach for you, I'll be happy to refer you to someone else or recommend a book, article, or other resource that might be helpful.
