Got questions? Perfect! I have answers.
In consulting, the client hires a specialist to provide them with answers for a specific problem they're facing. In therapy, the client hires someone to help them uncover things that have happened in the past to examine their effect on where they are today.
My view of coaching is a one-on-one partnership where the coach is helping the client achieve a future goal. It’s a partnership because the client is the one with the answers, and the coach’s role is to guide the client through a discovery process to uncover those insights. That process may touch on aspects of past or present experiences, but coaching is a more future-oriented practice that builds toward a longer-term goal.
Coaching not only helps you identify areas of strength and areas that may be holding you back, but helps you formulate a plan to leverage your strengths and address your areas of opportunity to move forward. Your coach is an objective addition to your support network, serving as observer and advisor with the sole motive of helping you achieve your goals.
Coaches are as individual as the clients we serve; we each bring our own specialties to the table. I'm a woman with many areas of interest. I've also struggled with finding the “balance” we are so frequently told to strive for without burning out or compromising for a less rich life. In addition to my life experience and professional consulting and strategic advising experience, I am clinically trained. I am also fully committed to empowering women—particularly women of color who are so often without these types of resources—to find what they need to build the best possible life they can lead. If you are a “multi-passionate” woman who multitasks by necessity but is looking to find harmony among the many elements that bring you joy, I'm the coach for you.
Initially, I'll talk to you to learn more about where you are versus where you want to be in your personal and professional pursuits. Then, we'll explore the challenges you're facing, potential solutions, and a practical strategy to move you toward your goals.
Sessions are scheduled with a cadence that provides you an optimal amount of time to complete the work you need to do between sessions. If you do need to accelerate your coaching schedule, sessions can be scheduled on a weekly basis for a six-week completion cycle.
Absolutely! Transitions are challenging enough—I want you to be fully comfortable in your decision to pursue coaching and in my ability to help you get where you want to be. Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll follow up with you shortly.
