I see clients of all ages – including youth with an adult sponsor – and genders, who are ready to make significant positive change in their lives. The topic/s may be personal, interpersonal, professional (as in those pursuing a new business venture), social, emotional or even spiritual – and goals may be short-term or long-ranging.
As a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), I work as your devoted personal growth ally to help bring you where you want to be. I have successfully completed a 10-month intensive training program through the Relationship Coaching Institute, and am pursuing Master Certified Coach credentialing through the International Coach Federation (ICF).
My specialties are intimacy, sexuality, relationships, parenting as well as starting over and the entrepreneurial path.
I understand that health is a wide-reaching experience that touches many aspects of our lives. As a Professional Coach, I do not diagnose or treat mental illness. Instead, we will focus on your strengths in many areas and build on positive momentum you have now to move bravely forward.
My Guiding Principles include:
Integrity – speaking truth and living by a consistency of thought, emotion, word and action in line with one’s highest values
Confidentiality – holding absolutely sacred the trust one gives and the information they share
Optimism – believing anything is possible and insisting on reaching past previous limitations
Self-Awareness & Self-Love – honoring our first relationship through ongoing discovery, so that all other great relationships are possible
Personal Responsibility – the foundation of empowerment, owning what is ours and therefore knowing where our agency lies
Healthy Boundaries – inversely, knowing what is not ours and how to set healthy limits
Inspiration – understanding how a connection to something greater fuels our life purpose and energizes our whole world
Loving Relationships as Priority – the wisdom that structures our life and time around love as a primary force and celebrated privilege of being human
Sessions are scheduled at a client’s convenience over the course of three months or more. In fall 2018, I am offering a trial package for One Month, One Focus, to see if we are a great fit for working together. Packages then start at 3 months of coaching, to ensure commitment to one’s goals and to reap the benefits of depth and endurance. All coaching relationships begin with Intake & Discovery paperwork, along with an official agreement.
A Free 20-minute call is always available to new clients, to discuss goals and address any questions. It is important to me that we are a great fit for working together.
Adults who are interested in a Free One-Hour session, may consider being interviewed (ongoing during 2018) for my book about sexual maturity in America. Interviewees must be ages 25-60, and have been raised primarily in the United States. Please see these Guidelines for more information. Also watch for Seasonal Offerings, with occasional Free 90-minute Sessions becoming available.
Those who are local to Bellingham, Washington may schedule appointments in the office for Monday or Thursday mornings (with last sessions at 1 pm). Remote clients will schedule online at their convenience. I use www.freeconferencecall.com because it is not linked to Google systems, and therefore provides better anonymity and privacy.
We can begin with more in-depth sessions at 90 – 120 minutes if desired. Standard sessions are 60 minutes.
Please see my current Packages for more information, discounts and rates.
