MY MISSION

My mission is to help you discover what’s next and go after it so that you can live a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I offer individualized one-on-one life and career coaching where I am a thinking partner and supportive companion for your journey of self-discovery and achievement. My primary focus areas as a coach are life transitions and reinvention, career, retirement, and productivity. My go-to frameworks (coaching pathways) are life designproductivity & habits leading practices, Personal Knowledge Management, and identity & mindset. 

WHAT IS LIFE COACHING?

The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity, and leadership.” The ICF goes on to note that “We all have goals we want to reach, challenges we’re striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck. Partnering with a coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment.”

HOW DOES COACHING DIFFER FROM THERAPY, CONSULTING, OR MENTORING?

Therapy is used to treat mental health issues. It is oriented toward helping clients achieve and maintain baseline mental health. Therapy often focuses on the past. Coaching helps clients move from baseline mental health to flourishing, living a life of meaning and purpose. Coaching focuses on the future. The cost of therapy is often covered by health insurance, whereas coaching typically is not.

Consulting and mentoring give advice based on the provider’s subject matter expertise and experience. Coaching avoids giving advice and is oriented to helping clients discover their truth.

COST
