What is Coaching?

In the coaching partnership, the client takes the lead in determining goals, and with the support of the coach, discovers personal strengths and utilizes these to move forward and create positive changes. Coaching is very different from counseling, therapy, or mentoring. According to the International Coach Federation, the role of a coach is to help the client discover and clarify goals and aspirations, encourage self-discovery, elicit client-generated strategies and solutions, and provide accountability to help individuals improve their outlook on life or work to reach their potential.

How it Works!

1. Each coaching session begins with a FREE Introductory Session where I meet you and/or your children. We discuss why you inquired about coaching and what you would like to achieve. This also gives me the chance to discuss my process and what you can expect moving forward.

2. Following the Introductory Session, we will schedule an Intake Session with you or you and your child, to get to know each other further. We will take some time to talk about overarching goals and achievements you would like for you and/or your child for coaching. This is the time to tell me EVERYTHING. I want to know IT ALL. You will complete the session with your first strategy or tool to move forward!

3. In a typical Coaching Session, I spend the first 45 minutes with just the student. In the last 15 minutes, I have the parent join the conversation to discuss strategies and our action plan to use for the next session.
Note: For older teens without parents and/or college students and adults, sessions are 55 minutes.

“As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has or ever will have something inside that is unique to all time. It’s our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression.” – Mr. Rogers
