What's the difference between coaching and therapy?
Coaching and traditional therapy differ, and they can be used separately or together to create a strong foundation for your life. Therapy helps you understand attitudes or behaviors in your past, and heal and gain closure on troubling events. Coaching looks at how your past impacts you now. It focuses on the present and moves you forward by using your strengths, gifts and inherent wisdom to guide you to a more balanced and fulfilling future. Coaches are collaborators, rather than experts. Unlike therapists, they do not diagnose mental disorders.
How does coaching work?
Coaching is conducted 2-3 times a month in person or on the phone. Sessions are between 30 minutes and an hour. Together, we schedule appointments to suit your needs. You choose what you want to work on and you lead the call. This is your life, your business?and your valuable time. As your coach, I will ask questions, make requests, and challenge you to reach your goals. E-mail support is available between sessions.
Who can coaching help?
Coaching with me is honest, challenging, loving and deeply spiritual, and I invite you to look at your readiness. How does it feel to say:
I am ready to...
Wake up and make changes
Fulfill my deepest dreams and desires
Question my limiting beliefs
Own my thoughts and actions
Move forward even when I feel stuck, blocked or blinded
Live in a way that fully expresses my passions.
Choose love first and always
This is your invitation to coaching. Without direction and action, your life lives only in your imagination. Discover the difference that working one on one with your own professional life coach can make!

Yes. I am committed to make coaching available to everyone I possibly can and I will work with you to make it affordable.
