Life Transitions Coach

A lot of people have been asking me recently,

“What is coaching?”

In truth, “a coach” and “coaching” can mean different things to different people (even other coaches) so here is what it means to me.

A Coach:
  • Helps you get unstuck and move past obstacles and barriers in life
  • Sees you as naturally creative and whole, not broken or in need of fixing
  • Knows you have the answers and tools needed to succeed; you just may need some help accessing them
  • Has tools to help you grow, and experience to help you flourish
A coach isn’t a consultant. They won’t tell you what to do. Emulating someone else’s success might work, but if there is one thing I know, it’s that everyone is different and what worked for me, may not work for you.

There is no one path to success that works for everyone. Instead, a coach gets to know you and asks a lot of questions to help you think about yourself and everything in your life in a different way, so you can see what you need to do and the right path to success for you.

Coaching is:
ACTION ORIENTED – focused on having you DO the things you need to do and BE the person you want to be. And when you’re not DOing and BEing, you’re learning from your actions and mistakes to grow and ultimately find success.

DOING WHAT WORKS FOR YOU – I strongly believe there is no such thing as motivation. There is only: what you do, and what you want to do, but don’t. There is also no one path to success that works for everyone. Coaching helps you find YOUR way, so you can change the things you’re doing that aren’t working for you, and start doing the things you need to do to succeed.

ABOUT FINDING A NEW PERSPECTIVE – as a wise man once said “we can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” So coaching focuses on looking at the challenges you face in a different light, and finding new ways to overcome them.

ABOUT CHOICES – because it is only by being aware of our choices, and starting to choose differently that we are able to change and grow.

ABOUT TOOLS – making sure you have the skills and knowledge you need so that when you take action, it is the right action, allowing you to be more creative and productive and build the life you want.

I specialize in helping people through life’s many transitions by focusing on what is truly important: who we are, our purpose, and our values.
