Frequently Asked

questions

What is coaching?

For this answer I will give you the International Coach Academy definition “ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential…”

What is your goal in the partnership?

I want to help people going through significant change implement a plan based on their values that will provide a fulfilling and satisfying life.

Why should I use you as my coach?

I am here as your partner. I help you to release your mind from doubt, uncertainty, and obstacles so that you can create positive action. I help you illuminate the path you want to take by giving you insight from an outside perspective. A perspective that is non-judgement, unbiased, and based on your values, strengths, goals, and timeframe.

What makes you different from other coaches?

We are all unique and bring our own experiences and methods to coaching. What makes me unique is that I have a military background; I came from humble begins where I had to fight to have a chance at life, and I turned it around through perseverance and hard work. I had plenty of doubters and things that I perceived as reasons to quit pushing, but I did not give in. I understand what it is like to have those you love say that you can’t do something and to not have the support required to keep you going… or to start. I understand what it feels like when you take one step forward and five steps back. I understand what struggle is and I genuinely want to help you get past whatever is holding you back! 

I am also an associate certified coach through the International Coach Academy. This certification means that I have been coached myself, I have coached my peers, and I have studied for over a year in order to ensure that I provide true value to your life.

Do I have to live in the same city as you?

I offer coaching services via phone, Skype (or other video teleconferencing apps), and face-to-face. We can also communicate via email between sessions.

How do I know you will not share my information?

All of our interactions are confidential. I strictly follow the International Coach Federation Code of Ethics

What is your method of coaching?

That depends on my client. Every session is tailored to address my client’s objective. I do not go in with a scripted plan in mind. Through active listening and mindfulness, I am able to ask powerful, thought provoking questions to help you create a plan of action. I will tell you that I am a blunt person who will ask the tough questions in order to get you where you need to go.

If you would me to provide an answer or see my prospective on something, I am able to provide that in a way that opens your mind to seeing other options you may have not paid attention to.
