COACHING FAQ:

Q:What should I expect for our first session?
I schedule complimentary 90 minute introductory sessions with all prospective clients in order to really dig in deep and get a good idea of what’s going on for you, what you most want, and how I can best help you transform.

It is important for us to have a good connection and vibe in order for our work together to be the most beneficial for you.

If we decide that we’re a good match for each other, I will then create a specialized custom coaching approach for you. Each person is unique, and I celebrate that most of all. You will be heard, challenged, and taken to the next level!

The session is held in-person at my Hollywood office.

Q: What’s the difference between therapy and life coaching?
 I work with high-functioning individuals and help them better understand themselves and what they most want, so that they can make the necessary changes in their life to get them on a closer path towards their dreams .

I don’t treat or diagnose mental disorders or extreme cases. I don’t try to extract your past or put you under hypnosis or do some sort of fortune telling (despite what my grandma may believe).  I create an intimate space for you each week to simply focus on you.  With no intent other than to teach you the creative powers of your mind create a better life experience, and a better you.

“Therapy is about the past — healing wounds.  Coaching is about the future.”

Q: How is this different from talking to a friend?
Friends are often great coaches in their own way, but usually aren’t equipped to help you understand yourself and aid you in creating great change in your life.  I won’t commiserate with you over how much your life sucks.   I’m here to help you deal with and move up and out of the suckiness.   I’m here to help you, and not participate in gossiping or ‘fixing’ things outside of your control (ie: everything).

Q: Who can benefit from life coaching?
Anyone.  Nothing needs to be ‘wrong’ with you to benefit from this stuff!  Everyone could use an unbiased ear, caring heart, and someone to help find clarity from time to time.  Unless you got lucky, no one really ever teaches us how to effectively deal with life, or how our minds are our ultimate life-power.  This is life-changing and powerful stuff!

Q: Will you be telling me what to do with my life?
Not exactly.  I help you figure out what you should do with your life.   Everyone else is already telling you what you “should” be doing!  I teach you how to harness the power of your mind and use your creativity to create a better life.

Q: Will you be judging me?
No.  I don’t come in and scrutinize and rate you on how properly you’re living your life (we already know so many people who can do that for us!).  I am also SO not perfect.  This is not about perfection!  This is not about holding to any other standard than your own.  There is technically no right or wrong, except how you want to be feeling.  This is about your own unique self and life, nothing else.  I mentally prepare beforehand for each session and have been trained in “holding space” for you from a place of openness and compassion.

Q: Is this spiritual in any way?
You can come from any belief system or background, and coaching can compliment it.  I do see it as spiritual in the sense that it really helps you discover your truth and inner power.  It is getting in touch with who you really are and helping you to move into a better version of yourself.

Q: Why do I coach?
Because everyone has something to express within them and society’s always said there’s a right and wrong way to do it, and it’s simply not true. There’s only one way to be, and it’s the way that works for you. The way that makes you feel the way you’ve always wanted, the way that makes you thrive, create, take adventurous risks and explode onto the scene of your dreams. The most exciting thing about being human is that we all share the same core, and are still completely unique. I celebrate that. I revel in helping you find who you really are and how to use your power to fuel your life. The secret is sustainable happiness. Create within so you can create without. This is it. Life is happening and it may only happen once. So why not design it from the inside out.

I am not a finished product and I never will be. I am a draft of a draft of a draft of a rough draft of a very rough draft. I’ve come a long way from where I started and I want to continue the journey with other creative minds to share the learning, the lessons, the love. I live to care and to love. I am curious and ask a lot of questions. I adore quirks and open minds. I am fueled by those who are living life on their terms and thinking outside the box.

Q: Who do I coach?
Smart individuals with open minds.  Those who have a unique way of expressing themselves.  The ones who always felt a little different.  People who care about taking control over creating better versions of themselves and their lives.  People who believe in change.  People ready to ask some powerful questions and look deep within themselves for the answers.  People ready to make a difference.  People looking to create within so they can create without.  Those ready to find the power and love within themselves.  Those who are ready to find the truth inside.

Q: How do I coach?
With my innate sense of caring and curiosity.  I have a passion for learning about people and the ways they think and act.  The more I learn about others the more I learn about my own life.  I value you as much as you value me.  I adore quirk and imperfection.  I coach from a place of love without judgement, without the need for you to be perfect.  I am no guru, I don’t have it ‘all figured out’.  What I do know is how to help you find out what works best for you. How you tick.  Why you live your own way like you do.  I give new perspectives, possibilities, insights.  The discovery of these things will fuel you in creating more creativity, joy, and fire in your life.  It’s the secrets of what causes you to experience life as you do.  You will learn the tools to your own mind so you can create the way you want to see, feel, and live.  It’s nothing magical, it’s science, it’s the way life works.  And the more you know, the more fully and wonderfully you can live
