The Coaching Process

I specialize in life purpose, career guiding, relationship and life transition coaching. I work with people of all ages, from the teenage years through adult and retirement years. My coaching style is conversational, collaborative and solution-focused, and I work with people from across the United States, in-person, via- phone, online and a mixture of media.

Initial Discovery & Consultation


initial coaching consultation processOur coaching journey begins with a 75-minute Discovery session (which may be held via Skype or in-person in San Diego) and continues through weekly or bi-weekly telephone, Skype or FaceTime sessions. Brief phone or e-mail contact is available between sessions to share successes or work through rough spots.





Duration of Coaching


long journeyThere is no standard course. The length of time you stay with me is decided by mutual agreement where we appraise where you started, where you wanted to go, and whether there are other goals, transitions, to changes to your life that would bring more fulfillment and greater well-being. Most clients, however, do commit to 3-6 months in order to attain the most effective results.



I encourage you to give coaching a fair shot. Freeing yourself from past constraints and incorporating new positive behaviors into your routine takes time and effort. When you go from a person who lacks clarity and decisiveness to a person with vision, action plans and assertiveness, you may experience friction with people in your life who grew accustomed to the ”old you",  and it may take time for them to adapt to the stronger version you become.



I don’t aim to keep you as a coaching client longer than necessary, but nothing authentically good happens over night. To gain the most out of our coaching relationship, I strongly encourage giving our work together a minimum of 4-6 months to give yourself the perspective to notice significant results.

Some clients find having a coach beneficial for the long-haul. These clients live growth-oriented lives filled with challenges that benefit from continual coaching as they climb and navigate the ladder of success. Such clients find the sounding board and re-framing provided by their coach to be beneficial throughout their working lives.  







My Process

Starting from our initial consultation, we will begin to map out our plan of action. Our initial 75  minute session will help me understand how I can best help you, what you most desire out of life, and establishing the trust we'll need in order for the coach-client relationship to work. You will learn more about yourself, and the areas in which I can help you as a coach. I look forward to working with you and guiding you on the path to achieving your life's biggest goals!
