First, let me tell you what a coach is not. As a certified professional life and addiction recovery coach, I am not a counselor, therapist, psychiatrist, or consultant. I will not assess or analyze you. I will not direct or instruct you.
As your coach, I help you make changes YOU want to make. My job is to support you in achieving a specific goal or set of goals, to partner with you in a thought-provoking and creative process that leverages your strengths and inspires you to maximize your potential. We will not talk about flaws, brokenness, or imperfection. Our relationship is a confidential collaboration in which I use experience, resources, accountability, one-on-one support, and other tools to help guide you to identify and achieve goals that you set for yourself.
