Personal Coaching & Counseling
I believe in you. Whatever your challenges--depressed feelings, fears, unfinished grief, self doubt--I will help you find clarity, power and greater freedom to express your potential. Let's find out where your thinking may be tripping you up. Let’s get you the support you need to discover how you are much stronger than your issues.
Coaching vs. counseling
Both Counseling and Coaching can be helpful for anyone. Coaching is for achieving a certain improvement and growth in your life, and it is what I naturally do by default. Sometimes all we need is information and skills to achieve the results we seek, rather than delving into issues from the past. Whether it is enhancing your marriage, deciding what to do with your career or reducing a bad habit, coaching always looks toward the future and the goals you have set. I would be your ally to boost your motivation, clear away obstacles, amplify your strengths and hold you accountable to realize your dreams.
On the other hand, when there is an issue persistently tripping you up in your life, counseling may be called for. Here we would work to help you gain insight into yourself and let go of unhelpful reactions born of past experiences. Counseling helps you recover from lingering wounds and move towards a lifestyle of healing, finding freedom to choose constructive courses of action.
There are many tools available to loosen and untie the knots that life is presenting you with, and we'll find the combination that works for you.
How we start
How do we start? First, we can talk by phone or just exchange a few emails. We can get to know each other a little and you can see if you are comfortable with me and would like to work together.
Next, I'll send you a questionnaire to help think out what you want to work on, and save time with me. Often people tell me that answering the questions was helpful in itself.
After that, we can schedule a video call together. I'll help you get in touch with what you really want and how you want to get there. We'll agree on some things for you to work on in between sessions.
The frequency of our meetings depends on your unique needs and preference. We can get together weekly. Or we meet every few weeks after you have had a chance to digest my recommendations and work on your own.
How: By Zoom video conferencing. Convenient and confidential. Encrypted to protect your privacy.
Cost: $80 per hour.
Also, $150 monthly for daily contact and support by text. This is particularly useful if you'd like me to hold you accountable to change a certain behavior and/or would like immediate guidance about how to handle a certain situation.
Free initial 20 minute consultation. Financial difficulties? Let me know. We'll find a solution so you can receive the support you need.
Also, consider joining one of our groups.
Payment will be through secure Paypal. I will email you a payment request via Paypal when you sign up and you may pay by debit or credit card or through your Paypal account. This request will be sent at the same time each month.
One on one coaching is month to month, and you can stop at any time. However there are no partial or full refunds for the time left over in the month.
