Are there professional standards for the coaching industry?

How will I know you are the right coach for me?
During our initial conversations and/or discovery session, together we will identify whether this is an appropriate fit. So before you say "yes", you will have a sample of what the coaching experience will be like. Until then, click on my bio page to learn more about me and my approach in coaching.

How do I get started in the coaching process?
If you are interested in beginning the coaching process, please contact me via phone or email so we can schedule our initial discovery session to further explore the details of the coaching relationship.

What can you expect from me as your coach?
1. Partnership - bringing out the best, the deepest, and the truest in you
2. A safe environment - providing encouragement and support; an environment in which you can relax and explore
3. Confidentiality (except as required by law) - giving you the confidence to be fully transparent
4. Exploration and discovery - expanding your view of what is possible and promoting discovery of new insights
5. Honest feedback - serving as both a mirror and a sounding board
6. Strategic Inquiry - listening carefully to what you say and asking questions that increase awareness
7. Support - acting as an on-going resource for you in accomplishing your goals

What if I sign up for this and decide it is not right for me? Do you have a money back guarantee?
Yes. If within the first month of our relationship you show up to the calls and participate fully in the coaching process, you can simply let me know this is not working for you and I will completely refund your money. To honor the coaching agreement and the coaching process, if you sign up and do not show up for your coaching sessions, do not do the follow up work, etc, then we will not refund your money.

    • If you misplaced both your username and your password, contact me and I will forward you your username information.

Forms, Documents and Resources Available

  • What makes up a “Welcome Packet” and what do I do with this?
    • A welcome packet consists of some basic forms, documents and resources that will help to get us started in the coaching process.  By completing the information in the welcome packet, you are providing me with some helpful information so I know best how to support you, guide you and work together with you.  It includes a “Client Profile” form, a “Goals” form and also a “Discovery” form.  You will also find our coaching agreement located in this packet.  It is customary for you to complete these items prior to our initial coaching session together.
