Who are your clients?

“Every calling is great when greatly pursued.”
Oliver Wendel Holmes

I really enjoy working with creative, young (or young-at-heart) people who love moving against the mainstream. They are committed to giving back to the world-at-large and show this through searching out work that has much more value than just a paycheck. If you fit most (or all!) of the following criteria, then we might just be a great coach-client fit:

  • You’re not looking to settle into a job for money or status. You’re looking for a lasting sense of real fulfillment from your work.
  • You believe that each of us has a purpose on this planet, and you’re either trying to figure yours out, or you have some sense of it and you’re trying to figure out how to align it with making a living.
  • You are open, honest, and know yourself well / want to get to know yourself better.
  • You are committed to following through on your dreams and goals, even if you have absolutely no idea at the moment how it’s all going to work out.
  • You really love constantly growing as a human being, and learning new things about yourself and the world around you.
  • You learn well by visualizing things, and find metaphors and analogies helpful in wrapping your head around new ideas.
  • You have a solid sense of humor, and appreciate having fun with your work (including personal growth work).

If you feel like this fits you, or you have a question you’d like to throw my way, please feel free to contact me via email or phone (1.630.446.0223). I also encourage you to get a sense of who I am, and what I offer as a coach, by browsing this site, and/or contacting me directly. Working with a coach is such a strong conduit for personal growth that you should be really comfortable with whoever you choose to work with!

What are your rates?

Please contact me directly via email or phone (see below) if you’re interested in working with me. I am happy to discuss both the benefits and fees for coaching, and we can even schedule a free sample session to see if we have a good client-coach fit.

I look forward to talking with you!

Where do you coach?

Most coaching sessions are done over the phone, as it allows me to work with you no matter where you are in the world. That said, local clients are always welcome to contact me about doing in-person sessions!

To schedule a complimentary first session to see what it would be like to work together as coach and client, please call me at 1.630.446.0223 or email me.

I look forward to talking with you!

Why should I hire a coach?

You shouldn’t.

Not unless you’re truly interested in committing wholeheartedly to making changes in your life. Coaching is definitely a two-way process, with both coach and client putting a lot of commitment, time, work and effort into it. You have to be ready to grow, ready to make plans and follow through on goals set, etc. If you’re ready to live your dreams as your reality, then working with a coach to get there is definitely something to consider.

I’m very honest and upfront with all of my clients from the very beginning. I offer a free coaching session with anyone who’s interested in getting a chance to work with me so that both of us can evaluate the process. I let you know if I think coaching is a good option for you, and we both get a chance to determine if we’d be a good coach-client fit.

The complimentary session that I offer to new clients also allows you, the potential client, to see if coaching is what you’re looking for, as well as what it’s all about (helpful if you’ve never worked with a coach before!).

If you’d like to schedule a free sample session, or if you have any questions, feel free to email or give me a call (1.630.446.0223).

The Benefits of Coaching

There are many benefits to working with a coach, not the least of which is making a commitment to yourself to do the things you want to do with your life. Having a coach there to listen on a regular basis, to problem solve with, bounce ideas off of, walk you through the process of goal setting in a way that works for you, and asking you the questions needed to help you in clearing boundaries and reaching your goals is one giant leap forward towards living a life that fills you up with joy and makes you want to jump out of bed each morning to meet the new day ahead.

If you’d like to schedule a free sample session, or if you have any questions, feel free to drop me an email or give me a call at 1.630.446.0223. I look forward to talking with you!

How do you coach?

You create the coaching relationship as an equal partner.

The analogy I use to describe the creation of a coaching alliance between coach and client is a living room. As the coach, I set up the framework for the alliance by creating the basic space: the floor, walls and a ceiling depict a confidential space, comfortable furniture means I encourage  open and honest sharing throughout the coaching sessions, an open door welcomes growth, and a complete lack of décor/paint means room for us to define our alliance together. We “decorate” the space together during our first session, and then continue to “rearrange furniture, etc.” as needed throughout the coaching relationship according to your needs and preferences. I really encourage you to let me know what will serve you best, as this alliance is focused on your growth, and the achievement of your goals and greater purposes.

I ask the tough questions.

I’m a very straightforward, honest person. I think that frank, open and honest communication, with ourselves and with others, is one of the greatest strengths we can foster. Thus, I tend to be very frank in the questions I ask, helping you dive in and get straight to the heart of what’s most important to you. I help my clients figure out their obstacles as well as their goals so that they can move quickly and freely from where they are to where they want to be.

I challenge my clients.

Life is tough, there’s no question about that. But I’m also a firm believer that if you believe you can do something, even if you just feel like you’re practicing believing it, or even downright pretending you believe it at first, you can make it happen. So I challenge my clients to think big, to believe in the reality of their dreams, and to take the steps necessary to create a life filled with joy, love, excitement, contentment… all things wonderful and fulfilling!

I encourage flexibility, open-mindedness and “there is no box” thinking.

If you’re going to dream, you may as well dream big! All too often we keep ourselves from what we really want in life by “being realistic” and constraining ourselves into what we think we “ought” to be doing. Enough of that! I like going beyond thinking “outside the box” to thinking as though there is no box at all! It’s high time we each create our life exactly as we want it to be, no more holding back. What is it that YOU want?
