Coaching FAQs

FAQs:

  • ​What is coaching?

​Mindset coaching will help you achieve your goal of conquering negative self-talk and/or learning to use it to your advantage. You know how your inner critic can rip you apart, causing you to shrink away from amazing opportunities, friends, and family? A good mindset coach will help you move beyond fear, shame, and guilt so you aren't endlessly making excuses for not engaging with the world around you. Instead, you'll work together to identify and connect your passions, values, and beliefs to your everyday life.

  • What does coaching include?

​New clients take an intake assessment, perform a client goals evaluation, and set up private coaching sessions via phone or (preferably) Zoom. Most of my clients also choose from one of my two elite 90-day e-courses, to further complement their coaching journey. In addition to this, clients receive notes and "next steps" from each coaching session, plus an audio recording of all our calls.

  • How can I help you?

I ​completed coach training in 2017. Prior to that, I served in full-time Christian ministry for ten years. I'm also an Amazon bestselling author of two books: From Pastor to a Psych Ward: Recovery from a Suicide Attempt is Possible, and Catching Your Breath: The Sacred Journey from Chaos to Calm

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

​I spent ten years in paid church work, and I was a pastor when I nearly died by suicide. I needed a holistic approach to healing, which had to include help from outside the church walls. Once I recovered, I missed pastoral counseling experiences, and wondered if I could create a similar experience for people, separate from professional church work.

I completed life coach training in early 2017, and love that I’m now able to create my own schedule and embrace people with an out-of-the-box approach to healing.

I know just how lonely a life of spiritual uncertainty can feel inside certain faith communities. I am passionate to help those I work with feel seen, heard, and loved. The positive feedback I receive empowers me to keep doing this priceless soul work​.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

I'm particularly passionate about people who feel overwhelmed and are looking for practical or spiritual ways to calm down and regain focus, clarity, and inner peace. Whether you're a pastor facing burn out, a mother who is pulling her hair out, or someone who's just come out of the closet. Everyone is welcome, safe, and affirmed here. If you want to learn how to silence your inner-critic, practice self-care, and develop a courageous life of vulnerability, I'd be honored to help.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

Just like any other product or service out there, coaching inherently requires certain ideals. Below are five characteristics of a profitable and successful coach. 

1. “I’m here and I’m totally focused on you.” - A coach's physical and mental presence is priceless. The attention given exudes professionalism and genuine dedication. Attentiveness, openness, and creativity go a long way.

2. “We aren’t all that different.” - Each of us have some basic shared experiences. There should be no sense of inequality between yourself as the client and your potential new coach.

3. “Let’s collaborate.” - Just as with any relationship, successful coaching is a reciprocal relationship where both parties are equally invested.

4. “Let’s make a plan.” - People strive on structure. With a well-thought-out plan, balanced by your motivation and your coach's support, you can absolutely succeed.

5. “I know someone...” - Networking is never a bad thing. When you hire a new coach, they may not have every answer to every question or expertise in every specific area that comes up. You may have needs beyond the scope of your coach's practice. Feel encouraged when they refer you to someone else for additional coaching, rather than "shooting from the hip."
