Coaching

 “You have powers you never dreamed of. You can do things you never thought you could do. There are no limitations in what you can do except the limitations in your own mind as to what you cannot do. Don’t think you cannot. Think you can.”         ~Darwin P. Kingsley

As your personal coach, my job is to empower you to find your own answers and provide encouragement and support in areas such as career, wellness and health, relationships, money, time management, and quality of life.  We can work together on any or all areas of your life, and I can help you make any kind of change that you want to make, big or small. Some examples of coaching goals are:

o    Improving relationships
o    Deciding on a career direction
o    Becoming healthier
o    Developing confidence
o    Increasing satisfaction at work or school
o    Accomplishing career goals
o    Creating more balance in life
o    Increasing happiness
o    Wanting more simplicity
o    Clarifying values and goals
o    Becoming more organized
o    Decreasing financial stress

How We Will Work Together

Positive psychology and my MentorCoach training are an integral part of how I will work with you. This means that we will start with what you want, and I will use my coaching skills to empower you to find your own answers and to support you on your path as you make important choices.
o    I will help you discover and promote your vision, values, and purpose.
o    I will assist you in setting goals and defining how you want to move towards those goals.
o    I will assist you in becoming aware of and removing obstacles.
o    I will encourage you to be accountable for doing what you say you will do.
o    I will work with your strengths and abilities to help you increase your happiness and sense of wellbeing.

Though my job as your coach is to help you, I am not the expert on you and your life. You are the expert on you, and I will listen deeply to you. I believe you are creative, resourceful, strong, and whole, and the relationship between us is a collaborative alliance.

MentorCoach Life Coach Training Program

I am currently in training to become a certified coach through MentorCoach. This state-of-the art coach training is based on the science of positive psychology, which makes MentorCoach different from other coaching programs. Positive psychology is the study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals to thrive. Researchers look at what works for people, that is, what makes them more functional, happier, and better instead of what is wrong. Alex Linley defines positive psychology as “a science that strives to promote flourishing and fulfillment at each of the individual, group, and social levels . . . a science that studies what makes life worth living.” Positive psychology assumes people are basically healthy, resourceful, and motivated to grow.
