What can I expect from the coaching process and from you?
As your partner and ally, you can expect me to boldly commit to your fulfillment and success while seeing you as bigger and more powerful than you see yourself. I will be direct and compassionate with you while not tolerating any "victim" behavior. From the coaching process, you can expect to see things with new eyes; to move through the world with a heightened sense of awareness about who you are and what is most important to you; and to create the conditions most sufficient for you to experience the fulfillment you seek. I give you the tools to move from "stuck" to freedom, propelling you as far as you are willing to go in achieving your dreams. All coaching conversations are completely confidential.
What do you expect from me?
Your willingness to recognize that you are human, to have an open mind and a hunger for more. I also expect that you will come committed to the process - knowing that you will explore unfamiliar territory and not run away from those almighty limiting beliefs that have kept you from what you really want up until now. In exchange for such courageousness, I offer my commitments to you above. You don't need to know the answers to your own riddles when you begin coaching, but you do need to play an active role by clearly defining what current riddle you are in!
Where are sessions held?
Nearly all individual and group Whole Life coaching is conducted over the telephone. Coaching over the phone is more time efficient, provides a sense of anonymity and is consistant regardless of your travel schedule, or where you reside! I specialize in listening to not only what it is you are saying, but to your whole message: what is between and around your words as well. This benefits you by increasing the productivity of our calls. On top of that, there is no travel time for you, nor is there the usual extra conversation that accompanies face-to-face interaction. It is a confidential, streamlined, get-down-to-business model.
How long does a coaching relationship generally last?
This process usually takes a minimum of 6 months, depending on your goals, your willingness to take action and your level of courage. I do not require any contracts however. Your situation is what matters most and what length of time best serves you.
Isn't it like therapy?
Coaching is not advice, therapy or counseling. Coaching is based in the premise that each person is naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and ultimately knows his or her own answers. It does, however, address specific personal projects, personal growth, business goals and successes or other situations in your life or profession. In the event that you feel the need for professional psychological counseling or therapy, it is your responsibility to seek a licensed professional.
Coaching is a very powerful model to elicit change in a person’s behavior. People who partner with the Whole Life Coach are mentally healthy people who want to improve their quality of life by actively participating in creating their unique version of a "BIG, juicy" life.
How much does it cost?
Rates vary from $350 - $1250/month depending on how you want to utilize your coach (life coaching vs. business coaching/consulting) and if you want to work on an individual basis or in a group. Also, keep in mind, that depending upon your financial situation and motivation, flexible options may be created.
Since coaching is close to impossible to describe, I offer free confidential consultations for you to experience how it will work for you.

I am happy to design with you the facets of how we work together after you are clear of the role coaching plays for you personally.
