Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching is partnering with client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. As a professional coach, I work with you to find answers, rather than act as an expert who provides them. I help move you from problem focused to solution focused. I hold you accountable and help you to hold yourself accountable.
HOW IS COACHING DIFFERENT FROM THERAPY?
Therapists bring you from troubled to functional. Coaches take you from functional to optimal.
A therapist's typical functions are to help clients fix problems, overcome past trauma or help manage mental illness. Coaches do not work with mental illness or spend much time on past trauma. As your coach, I focus on solutions. The past is may be used as a growing/learning tool, but only as it pertains to your current situation. Coaching often picks up where therapy leaves off.
HOW DO I KNOW WHICH IS RIGHT FOR ME: CBT OR COACHINGr?
We typically say that coaching picks up where therapy leaves off. However, sometimes when we have not delt with past traumas or suffer from anxiety CBT can be most helpful.
HOW LONG IS A TYPICAL COACHING/CLIENT RELATIONSHIP?
Coaching is a "forward moving" process, with specific goals and results. The process can range anywhere from 3 to 12 months depending on the program and frequency of sessions. New clients are suggested to start with a 3 month package that meets each week. Sessions are 60 minutes each and I am accessible to you via email or text anytime.
DO YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC CLIENT BASE OR NICHE MARKET?
Our client base ranges from executive leaders to individual contributors, and entrepreneurs to stay at home parents. Our clients are leaders, high-growth high potential workers, business owners, parents, executives, creatives and couples.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I BOOK A CONSULTATION?
Consultations are abbreviated sessions that provide both client and coach an opportunity to explore: what you would like to get from the coaching experience, are coach and client aligned on communication style and objectives, is there a general connection that encourages communication.
