What do you love most about your job?

I love empowering people. I love helping them come alive and supporting them in finding their purpose, becoming fully expressed, confident, and trusting of who they are. Getting to witness another person learn to love themselves and love the life they live makes me so, so happy.

What inspired you to start your own business?

A few years ago, I had the biggest wake up call of my life. My best friend passed away, my dad got diagnosed with cancer, and I spiraled into a depression that swallowed me whole. I looked at all of my commitments as burdens and obligations. I was constantly burnt out, stressed, and the perfectionist in me was now certain I was a failure. So as a last attempt to "fix" myself, I hired a life coach, who helped to propel my growth more than anything I had ever experienced. I became undone and realized that my purpose on this earth was not to be tamed and "good." It was to be fully expressed and alive. From then on, I knew that I wanted to help others feel the same about heir life. Now I have the pleasure of helping women and men choose themselves first, and redesign the life of their dreams.

Why should our clients choose you?

I think this testimonial speaks for itself:

"I have been gifted with a truly new lifestyle that entails a greater understanding of myself, a clear career path I’m excited for, living by my own standards, a better relationship with money, self-kindness, hope, and the feeling of there being so much possibility and potential for me."

I truly believe I was born to do my job -I take care of my clients, hold them accountable in a fierce, but compassionate way, AND I am unafraid to say the bold thing that will propel them growth. Working with me feels like a loving, vibrant, wild journey of transformation.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

Yes! All of my clients are spread across the United States. We meet over Zoom.

Life Coaching FAQs

Your professional life coach will be able to advise you on the full range of coaching available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted life coach today.

You can have as many or as few life coaching sessions as you like. Many life coaches operate over the phone or via the internet so the sessions can easily fit around your schedule. Some people hire a life coach once every few months, some people have a session once a week.

Life coaching sessions will typically last up to an hour. Often after an initial assessment, sessions can be conducted over the phone, face to face, over email, via Skype/Zoom and occasionally through instant messaging.

During the session, your life coach will ask you a number of questions, such as what you want to achieve in life, what areas you're unhappy with and where you'd like to see yourself in the future. Although a life coach will work with you, it’s often up to you to challenge or reflect upon certain ideas you have to help you move forward with your life. You will never be forced to make any decisions you don't feel comfortable with and all sessions will be confidential.

Life coaching is focused on your present and your future. Coaching accepts your current reality and looks to improve your outcome moving forward. Life coaches are not health professionals and they do not diagnose you. By contrast, therapy focuses on your past and looks to delve into past actions and patterns. It is analytical but not action-oriented.

Most mainstream health insurance providers do not cover the costs of life coaching because it is not considered a mental health profession in the same way therapists and counsellors are.

Life coaches do not need to have any formal or academic qualifications but you may want to look for life coaches who possess an industry-specific qualification, such as the Life Coaching Diploma or Personal Performance Diploma (PPD).

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, which shows you reviews from past customers who have used their life coaching services.

A life coach is a trained professional who aims to help and guide individuals to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals. They support clients on a journey to rediscover their own strength and abilities. This can include excelling in the workplace, becoming happy and fulfilled at home, exploring your potential, managing health conditions and achieving life ambitions.

By harnessing techniques based on core psychological principles and intuition, life coaches empower clients and provide a toolkit of teachings to confidently face difficult challenges and overcome emotional barriers.

Life coaches can specialise in one of these particular areas of coaching: career coaching, executive business, group coaching, health and wellbeing, performance management, personal development, relationships, retirement, spiritual and youth coaching.

Rapport is one of the most important parts of life coaching. If you feel uncomfortable with your professional, you are unlikely to gain much from the session. It is advisable to get in contact before you book a session to meet your life coach so you can gauge how comfortable you are in their presence. It is worth talking to a few potential life coaches and ask questions.

Yes! As long as you have a strong internet connection, then your life coach can deliver sessions via an online video chat platform. Alternatively, it can be done over the phone.
