1. Overwhelmed. If you feel like you have too much to do, respond to, pay attention to, and think about, a coach can help you sort priorities and get focused, allowing you to feel more in control.
2. Discouraged. It you feel like your confidence is fading, a coach can help you build a plan to address what you are dealing with and reframe your perspective.
4. Lack skills. When you separate success from quality of life, you face a dilemma. You end up making decisions you don't want to make: to work or stay home, to take a promotion or preserve your sanity, to follow your heart or stick to the security of a so-so job. Coaches help organize your time so you're not missing the vacations and time you need to maintain your mental health.
5. Mediocrity. When you lose sight of the grander vision of your life and leadership, you end up tinkering in the minutiae instead of increasing your value. You forget about high expectations. You're just shooting for "good enough" and "done." A coach helps you set standards for yourself so you're not just puttering along, looking for the lowest common denominator. A coach helps you raise the bar for yourself in a way that's invigorating.
6. Dissatisfied. When you aren't able to pinpoint your contribution and live a life of meaning, your achievements can feel hollow. You might feel disconnected, bored, isolated, unmotivated, stagnant, or burned-out. You might even start to wonder what it's all for.
You may not be able to lift yourself out of the doldrums, but with a coach you can transform your perspective and get back to a place where you're excited about your work and achieving your personal and professional goals.
How is Coaching different from Therapy?
While the life coaching I provide can be therapeutic, it is not therapy. Coaching is distinct from traditional therapy because it is not designed to address psychological issues. While emotional issues may arise, the primary focus of life coaching is to help you identify your goals, achieve them, and develop constructive habits and skills. There is little emphasis placed on the past with coaching, but instead the focus is on creating what you want now and in the future.

How long do people generally work with a Life Coach?
To experience the effectiveness of a life coaching program, most clients find that an initial three-month commitment is best when working toward a specific goal or goals. There are no contracts, however. At the end of the three months, we will evaluate progress and discuss options for continued coaching.
Is personal life coaching confidential?
What we discuss will be held in confidence and not shared with others. However, our discussions are not privileged for legal purposes. The privilege of confidentiality that exists for the clergy, therapists and attorneys is not granted to coaching professionals. That said, life coaching is a confidential process, and your personal information will always be protected.
