Frequently Asked Questions

  • Coaching is based on a belief that the client innately possess the answers and abilities to make decisions, reach goals, and live a fulfilling life. Coaching, through questioning, allows the client to access these answers and abilities to come to a place of empowerment and confidence in order to reach their potential and lead a positive life without judgment or negativity. Although coaching and therapy can go hand in hand, a coach does not treat mental health disorders or diagnose them. A coach can, and does work with clients who have anxiety, depression or other mental health issues in order to help these clients set reachable goals and identity self limiting behaviors.
  • Coaching is so versatile, we can do it via Zoom, FaceTime, or Googlemeet. I can talk with anyone, wherever a person lives, as long as you have a phone or internet connection. It actually works very well! I just ask that you are fully engaged and not driving, watching TV or using other electronic devices.
  • That is true. Coaching is about helping you find the answers within yourself. I believe that you hold the answers. You are your “higher coach!” I will ask questions that will help you discern what you want out of life and what is holding you back. These questions will also help you make decisions, and set goals that you want to pursue.
  • Whereas other professionals may tell you what to do or give advice, coaching isn’t about that. I believe that you hold the answers within, and I ask questions that help you determine how you truly feel about your life and how you are living, where you want to go as a person, and your plan of action. I believe that if you come up with a plan, you will take ownership of it, and you will succeed because it is your idea!


    I will share with you empowering techniques to help you reach your goals and identify what may be holding you back, but you will be a partner throughout the process.
