Q: Who are my clients?

I specialize in strengths-based coaching for  individuals with executive functions challenges and parents of special needs children. My clients include:

  • Adult professionals who want to achieve greater focus, direction, and satisfaction in their lives.
  • Parents of special needs children who want to learn to use their strengths to parent their children while taking care of themselves.
  • College or graduate students who want to create a more successful and fulfilling college experience.

Q: How can coaching help you?

Coaching can help your to:

  • discover your signature strengths and learn how to use them in your daily life.
  • develop clarity and awareness so you can make more effective choices in your life.
  • sustain motivation and focus so you can complete what you've started.
  • create healthy routines and habits for increasing your effectiveness at work, home, orschool.
  • develop systems for dealing with multiple tasks or long-range projects.
  • learn strategies to stay more organized and manage your time.
  • create more balance and fulfillment in your personal and professional life.

Q: Where does coaching take place?

I coach all of my clients over the phone.  Telephone coaching is an effective and convenient method that enables you to work with someone without ever leaving your home.

Q: How does coaching work?

During our initial session, we will clarify what you want to achieve, identify your signature strengths, and discuss your challenges.  This will set the foundation for the rest of our coaching sessions.


Between our sessions, you will be asked to work on thought-provoking or practical "mini-assignments' that will advance you towards your goals. My role will be to support and encourage you, ask targeted questions, and hold you accountable towards your goals.

 

At the beginning of coaching, I generally recommend weekly 45-minutes sessions with a month-to-month commitment.  This helps us to develop a collaborative relationship, maintain consistency, and achieve maximum results. 

Q: What is the difference between coaching and psychotherapy?

Coaching is not a substitute for psychotherapy.  Psychotherapy generally focuses on treating psychological pain, emotions, or interpersonal issues.  While coaching recognizes these issues, it focuses on taking action towards personally meaningful goals, as identified by the client.
