Certified Professional Life and Leadership Coaching
My Coaching Philosphy and What it Can Do for You:
Life is about opportunities and choices. Every day, people make choices regarding everything they do, whether at home, work or elsewhere. They can choose how they wish to respond to the world, as opposed to just reacting to it. This is called making conscious choices. By making conscious choices, they now have control over their life.
We can all create the lives we want by knowing that we are in total control of the choices we make regarding our thoughts, our emotions, our responses to outside events that occur in our world. By knowing that opportunities are limitless, any person can become empowered to make those choices which will best serve their own individual interests. This is conscious choosing. THIS is empowerment.
Some people find themselves at a crossroads in their lives, perhaps with work, school, family, relationships, or even with themselves. Others know they are in a great place and just want to move forward even more. Coaching helps people to look more closely at and realize the opportunities which exist for them and helps them to learn how to choose consciously. By responding rather than reacting, a person can maintain control over his or her life, which empowers them even further to be able to create the ideal life of their dreams.
I utilize values-based coaching techniques, in addition to the wisdom of new thought leaders and visionaries such as Wayne Dyer, Don Miguel Ruiz and Carolyn Myss, among others. I am a very spiritual person, so if you are looking for someone who can coach with an ideology towards a Higher Power, I will honor and respect your choice of this pathway as well.
I generally work with coaching clients starting for a period of 3 months (or more), meeting for 2-4 sessions per month. Very much like personal training, it takes time to identify your goals, set up a strategy and then work to achieve them. As a coach, I am there to partner with you as you set your goals, try new techniques and work through the blockages that may have been holding you back from success in the past. My role is to hold you accountable and always focus on your forward progression and success! (And please know that coaching is not about giving advice or consulting nor is it therapy.) I believe that you already know the answers and our coaching sessions are about holding space for you and YOUR highest good.
There are times, however, when someone is just looking to meet for a session (or two, or three), to have a coach as a sounding board and perhaps work through some smaller challenges. I can (and do) work with clients in that situation as well. I do offer a complimentary 30-minute session for those wishing to see if it's a good fit for you. You can contact me at 888-877-4411.
In addition to coaching, I am very passionate about teaching workshops and retreats. I offer classes locally through the community college, as well as offering many workshops to groups in my community and across the country. I am especially excited about my newest program, a weekend retreat and 3-month coaching program called "Sojourn to Self." You can find out more about this at www.sojourntoself.com.
I look forward to hearing from you. Please let me know if you have any questions at all.
