What do you love most about your job?

I LOVE helping others succeed, gain clarity, heal relationships, gain confidence, take courageous action, have those tough conversations, celebrate, give grace, make the hard choices, overcome fears/false beliefs and bad habits, set healthy boundaries, re-capture time, communicate effectively.....my heart ZINGS!

What inspired you to start your own business?

The motivation to start this business over 15 years ago began with a need to remove myself and two boys from an abusive marriage. I'd been a stay at home mom for a period and took time to explore what kind of business would utilize my unique gifts, capitalize on my education & experience, and provide some needed flexibility. So the focus was based on strengths, experience and passion, but the catalyst that got me in motion quickly was initiating my exit strategy.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am not the right fit for everyone. If you are ready for real change from a coach who can quickly identify your barriers and create the strategies that will get you in action, I am the coach for you! My style is playful but we get the job done. Tough topics blended with humor. I am NOT a shoulder to cry on. Yes, you can vent to me. but we're going to get in action. I don't keep working with anyone who isn't making progress.

I am doing the work that I was born to do. I have been accidentally coaching, mentoring and motivating people my entire life and coaching on purpose for more than 15 years. I have the innate abilities and experience that allow me to quickly identify the barriers that stand in the way of of achieving your goals and creating the work and life you desire.

I also have a strong educational background in the field, a Masters Degree from one of the top Human Resource programs in the country, Michigan State University, and I am a Certified Senior HR professional. The combination of innate abilities, education and experience is unprecedented in the field.

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.
