These are a few of the questions I get asked often. If I missed your question, please contact me here. I'd be happy to answer anything I can about my work or how I might support you.


What is a life coach?

A Life Coach is someone who comes alongside you to help you focus on developing and achieving your goals. We help establish action plans and create environments of accountability and empowerment.


How does Life Coaching differ from counseling?

Like counseling, it is a confidential relationship based on your goals. Unlike counseling, Life Coaching will focus on moving forward and does not look into the past.


who comes to life coaching? is this for me?

Clients choose life coaching and guidance with me often because they want to make a change in their lives or business, and they want assistance in creating and working their plan.

My services with life coaching assistance can help when you are:

  • stuck
  • burnt out
  • frustrated with your life
  • need clarity
  • going through a transition
  • looking for balance
  • wanting to improve your leadership skills
  • looking for a career change
  • dealing with loss

How many sessions will I need?

There's no standard number of sessions, as each guidance plan is tailored to your specific needs. The length of the time will depend on your goals and the frequency of the sessions. If you have any questions and need help determining how best to move forward, please contact me. Learn more about our sessions here.


What is Your Coaching Style?

As a coach, it is my goal to create a safe environment in which my clients feel both encouraged and challenged as they work towards their goals. I challenge my clients because I want them to live up to their potential. I hold them accountable to their plan, celebrate their successes, and encourage them when they stumble.


where are you located?

I am located in the Greenville area of South Carolina. The beauty of Life Coaching is that it can be conducted either in person or via Skype. For people with busy schedules, Skyping allows the convenience of a session in the comfort of their home or office. Learn more here.
