Work With Me
I am a confidence coach who utilizes the arts as coaching tools to help you bring about meaningful life change. I primarily work with individuals 18 years of age and older who are tired of getting in their own way--in relationships, education, following dreams, living/thinking independently, friendships, health, or something else. I'll guide you to find answers, explore possibilities, believe in yourself, make plans, and take action to break down barriers and live a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
I strive to be a welcoming, supportive, professional, knowledgeable, and considerate coach, putting you, the client, first. I'm here to support you as you take steps to make your life the best it can be.
Is coaching for you? If you answer "Yes" to any of the following questions, you may benefit from coaching. Do you:
*want to learn how to get out of your own way?
*have feelings of being "stuck" or lost?
*struggle with lack of confidence, believing in yourself, trusting yourself and/or others?
*want to learn to focus on what you can do rather than what you can't do?
*need accountability, motivation, guidance and/or support to get through a temporary setback?
*need guidance regarding work/life balance and time management?
*want to become more social, make friends, deepen connections with others?
*need guidance on educational goals?
*want to learn how to be more independent and take more responsibility for your own life and actions?
*have mobility issues due to an injury or medical condition that holds you back from being your true self?
*lack confidence regarding supporting and navigating life with your significant other or spouse who has health issues?
*lack confidence regarding guiding and supporting your child who has health issues?
*want to learn to focus, pay attention, stay on-task?
How it works
Send me a message with Coaching Info Request in the Subject line via the Contact Me form to get more information or ask questions.
If you are under the age of 18, I will need to make an appointment to talk with your parent/guardian via phone or Zoom video conferencing, as well as email you a consent form for them to sign and email back to me before payment will be accepted or paid coaching sessions will be scheduled.
If you're interested in coaching, and would like to take advantage of my free session, fill out this form, and I will get back to you within 24 hours to schedule a time that works for both of us. You'll receive one free 45-minute phone session where we can get to know each other a bit, find out what your goals are, find out what you're looking for in a coach, review my coaching style, have a mini sample session, review my various coaching packages, and find out if I might be a good coach for you. See if we click.
If you decide to purchase one or more coaching sessions or one of my coaching packages, I accept payment via Paypal. We will discuss a payment schedule that works best for both of us.
You'll need to get a Paypal account if you don't already have one, in order to work with me.
After you purchase one or more coaching sessions or one coaching package, I'll email you a contract to review, sign and email back to me, plus a Welcome Packet.
Then it's time to set up our first session. I'll ask that you fill out electronically and email back to me the intake form and various other forms from your Welcome Packet no later than 24 hours prior to our first session, so I can review them. You are responsible for calling me to begin each session. Any long distance phone charges incurred are your responsibility. We'll review your intake form together during the first session, I'll answer any questions you may have, in this and each subsequent session.
Sessions may be structured or unstructured. Structured sessions follow the DIBA program. I guide you with questions, exercises, homework assignments, etc. The DIBA program also has an optional art component. Unstructured sessions follow a more informal method. For example, I may start the session by saying, "So, what would you like to talk about today? And you talk. I may offer input, suggestions, ask for clarification, etc., but basically you talk about what you want to talk about. This method is for clients who basically need someone to talk to, to listen, to bounce ideas off of, to organize thoughts and ideas in order to figure things out, take action, and live a more fulfilling life. You can also utilize the arts as coaching tools in these unstructured sessions if you wish. "Unstructured" simply means that the coaching options for utilizing the time allotted for each coaching session, while still professional, are quite flexible.
Whether you choose structured or unstructured sessions, ongoing coaching sessions involve reviewing the progress you've made on action steps since the last session, celebrating victories, guiding you in revising goals as needed, deciding on the action step commitments to work on for the next session, motivating and guiding you to commit to taking action in the form of mini steps in the present to work toward achieving your long-term goals and realizing your dreams.
Within 24 hours of each sesssion, I will email you a session summary.
Periodically during our contract period, I will email you resources related to topics we've discussed. (Videos, studies, articles)
Please read my coaching refund-cancellation policy carefully.
Please note: I am also open to working with anyone who is feeling stuck and is willing to invest in, be curious, and explore creative ways to bring about meaningful change to their lives.
