I welcome your questions!
Do others feel like me?
YES, they do. Whatever your situation and however you feel, others have been where you are now.
Are sessions worth it?
It's normal to go to the doctor for a medical issue, the mechanic for your car and the electrician for your house. You are just as important. This is your life. You have worth.
Is it normal to feel nervous?
It's normal to feel nervous about any new experience. Perhaps you want to dip your toe in the water or you may choose to dive right in. I meet you where you are.
How do I choose a Life Coach?

This myth I'll address directly, the perception that talking to someone, invites judgement.
In the world, this is true: the boss evaluates your performance, colleagues compete with you, clients expect you to jump through hoops, friends vacillate between praise and pessimism while family demands feel overwhelming.
From the world, you seek safety from criticism and judgement. This need, you fiercely protect as the one thing you can control, what you share and with whom. When you talk with me, I make real effort to suspend judgement. The reason is simple. This is your life and these are your choices.
My style is very direct. I worked with doctors for a decade, I like to get to the point. You'll find my ability to cut to the chase, can be a relief. You'll instinctively know that I try very hard to "see" you and that I am listening very closely to what you say.
This is the baseline for everything, my belief that you have value. It goes to the core of how I operate.
Styles vary, but this is truth.
Another myth I'll address directly, the perception that talking about challenges is hard to do. Yes.
The answer is yes. If you dig deep, it can be hard. Yes.
The alternative, bury everything until it comes back to bite you with a vengence. That's no way to live.
When you seek depth, it's daunting. The result will be growth for the life that you want. It's worth it, it will take real effort.
Substance is what you want, embrace it.
