Individual Life Coaching
Let’s focus exclusively on you and your life goals
Individual change coaching is the most effective and expedient way to manifest the change you want, or to learn to navigate the change you weren’t expecting.
A unique membership model.
Think of it like a gym membership, but for getting your life in shape.
If you’ve ever hired a personal trainer, you know the power of accountability. Because of the nature of our work together, I recommend signing up for one of my membership packages, meeting biweekly or monthly, so that we can both commit to your goals and the time it takes to achieve them.
It all starts
with a conversation.
Our coaching relationship will start with a free 30-minute discovery session in which we get to know each other and you help me understand why you’re seeking coaching. If we both feel like it’s a good fit, then we’re off!
Commit to the time
because change doesn’t come easy.
After that, I recommend that we meet every other week for 50 minutes to evaluate your progress, identify obstacles, and make a plan for the next two weeks. Change isn’t easy – if it was, you wouldn’t be looking for help! – and it requires commitment over time. I recommend that you anticipate that manifesting the change you’re hoping to make will take us between six months and a year to achieve. Many clients decide to keep up with coaching, sometimes meeting monthly instead of biweekly, to make sure they don’t lose momentum.
there will be homework.
In between our meetings, you’ll be able to log into a client portal where you can access notes from our session and homework as well. I’ll also follow up with you occasionally with gentle nudges if you need a little coaxing. It’s okay – I’ve got you, and you’ve got this!
Not ready to commit?
I get it. We barely know each other, after all. I also offer one-off meetings to new clients while we get to know each other. Let’s plan a call, and start getting clarity on your goals, and we can put a ring on it later.
Talking to Children about Violence
When violence happens, especially in a school shooting situation, children and parents can feel fearful and at risk. Knowing how to talk to a child can help ease their fear, give them a sense of personal control, and help them navigate the uncertainty that comes with high profile acts of violence.
The Ventral Vagal System
The ventral vagus helps us to feel connected, safe, and able to access our prefrontal cortex (the part of the brain that can think clearly and make decisions)
The Dorsal Vagal System
The dorsal vagus is a nerve that is common in all mammals. Normally, it’s helpful in regulating between your arousal and relaxation. When stress is unrelenting, however, the dorsal vagus kicks in to help us freeze. It’s the system of shutdown.
