What should I expect from life coaching?
As your life coach I'm here to help you sort out everything in your head. Sometimes you just need a safe place to talk. You can expect to be heard, feel safe and not judged. You might feel vulnerable at times. This is all part of the process. Usually, at the end of each session we will set an intention for the next session. Sometimes there's homework sometimes there's not. This process is uniquely designed for you.
What is the difference between coaching, consulting and therapy?
A life coach is about working with someone to help you discover and empower you to achieve your goal(s) or to change, enhance & improve an area of your life. It’s about taking where you are right now and encouraging you to figure out what tweaks, decisions, or adjustments need to be made so you can live a more fulfilling life. A consultant is someone you hire to give you ideas or advise about specific circumstances in your life or business. Finally, a therapist is hired when you need help moving on from the past. They may help you heal from past traumas or events that are preventing you from moving forward. My goal is to help you unlock your best self. I will refer you to someone who can meet your needs if it is determined my services aren’t the best fit for you.
Do you offer group coaching or support groups?
Group coaching is a great way to get a few people together who are all working on the same area. Camaraderie can be extremely helpful to your success. I can tailor design a support group or group coaching session to fit you and others needs. Contact me for pricing information.
What if I'm not good at this?
Anytime you try something it takes time to feel confident about it. Self doubt or fear of failure are very real feelings that we will work through. Change takes time! Did you know it takes the brain 3 weeks to change a habit? You don't decide you want to lose weight and wake up the next day 10 lbs. lighter. Be patient with yourself as you adjust to the process. Trust in the path you're on and allow space and time for the answers to come to you.
What are your rates?
There are different rates for different types of services. The consultation will be free, but my standard rate is $100 per session. I am committed to life coaching and fully believe in the positive impact it can have on your life so I have a few spots for sliding scale clients. Please don't hesitate to ask me to see if one of these spots are available for you.
How do I pay?
Payments are expected at the time of service unless arrangements have been made prior. I accept cash, credit cards, & Venmo® payments.
Will my health insurance cover life coaching?
Most insurance companies do not cover life coaching. I am not contracted with any insurance companies, but you may check with them to see if they will reimburse you. I am happy to talk to you about payment options.
How often will we meet?
Coaching sessions are set up to meet your needs. Most people like to meet once a week or bi-weekly. There are no right or wrong ways to schedule your sessions. It's important they work for you.
Do you offer coaching via phone or online?
I understand how busy life can be. I thrilled you are making time for yourself. I am happy to meet in person, but this doesn't always work out. I offer sessions over the phone or online via Zoom®. If this is your preference I will set up a meeting virtually and invite you to attend.
