What Is Coaching?

In general terms, coaching describes a professional partnership in which the coach and client work together to help the client increase self-awareness, generate learning, and identify and accomplish meaningful goals.

Academic Life Coaching adds another dimension in which coach and client explore a variety of skills specifically aimed at students. Academic Life Coaching will: a) help you understand your learning style and apply it to maximize learning efficiency; b) help you understand your motivations so that you can become more proactive and engaged; c) enable you to reduce stress by creating effective systems; d) boost your level of confidence and excitement about your future goals & plans.

Transition Coaching will equip you with the skills, habits, and mindsets needed to navigate periods of change and uncertainty with confidence. In our work we will focus on: a) developing a mission & vision for your life; b) working with limiting beliefs & misconceptions; c) setting goals; and d) planning for the future.

Grief Coaching is a specific type of transition coaching that aims to support you in navigating grief and integrating loss on your own terms and in your own time. The end goal is not to “get over” your grief but to move forward with it.

To be clear, I am not a therapist/counselor, mentor, or consultant. My job is not to tell you what to do, or how to be, or what to think. My job is to help you discover those things for yourself and to figure out what works for you.

Do you do online coaching?

Yes, absolutely! Thanks to the internet I can coach online as well as face-to-face, so we don’t have to be in the same place or even in the same time zone to work together!

How much does it cost?

My base rate is $100/hour but that is dependent on whether you purchase individual sessions or a package. I generally suggest a minimum of 10 sessions, not including your FREE introductory session, but that is entirely up to you. Please contact me through this website or by email at [email protected] so that I can get a sense for what you are interested in and can provide a customized cost estimate.
