Frequently Asked Questions

Please contact us if you have more questions. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

What is the difference between coaching and counseling?

It is important to me that you have clarity about the difference between coaching and other types of professional services, such as therapy or counseling, consulting and mentoring.  Coaching focuses on where you are presently and where you are headed, with a goal of helping you gain clarity about your vision, eliminate obstacles to your success, accelerate the pace of personal growth and achieve results that empower you to live your best life – professionally and personally.  We can focus on any area of life:  Relationships, Finances, Spiritual Life, Work and Business, or Physical Health and Environments.  While coaching is forward-focused, counseling tends to deal more with past issues in which you may find yourself stuck and struggling.  We may occasionally discuss something that has occurred in the past, for the purpose of clarifying the present, but your coaching will not focus on resolving the past.

What is the difference between coaching and consulting?

A coach focuses on helping you walk your unique path to success.  As the client, you are responsible for the results you receive as a result of coaching.  I help you discover how to become more of who you need to be to achieve those results and identify what you may need to do differently.  A consultant takes responsibility for a specific project, acting as a specialist*, providing specific deliverables and knowledge.  I believe in your ability to fully experience your potential and will provide a safe, consistent and confidential space for you to develop your potential.

*If my professional experience (in the areas of health and human services management, fundraising, and entrepreneurship) is of benefit to you personally and professionally, I will gladly share what I know.

Where do you meet with clients?

Designed to fit the unique need of each client, all coaching services may occur in person, by phone, by skype or at a specified location, depending on the type of coaching service.  These coaching venues provide the client with service flexibility anytime and anywhere, enabling them to maximize time and heighten personal comfort.

How often do you meet with your clients?

Sessions typically occur in fifty (50) minute intervals, but can be shorter or longer, depending on client preference and the type of coaching service engagement.  The number and frequency of sessions is mutually established between the coach and client or group, based on client need, preference and availability.  Coaching expectations, for all coaching services, are outlined in the client service agreement and at the beginning of each coaching session.

Are our sessions confidential?

It is essential to our coaching relationship that you can be open and share honestly.  Our conversations are entirely confidential, unless the release of information is otherwise authorized or requested by you, or required by law.
