More about coaching

Congratulations on taking this first step toward change. Educating yourself about options is an excellent start. I'd love to tell you more about what Life Order Coaching has to offer.

What is a Life Coach?

A life coach is an educated and trusted partner who works with clients in co-created relationships. An awareness-action-learning model is used via structured questions, exploration, and agreed-upon steps for accountability. We can also help provide a fresh perspective and encouragement as you move past challenges and learn from your successes. Life coaches help you discover your answers, even when you didn't realize you had them. 

How do we meet?

The consultation call always happens via phone. After that, coaching sessions happen via Zoom or phone. Either way, a link is provided, and the client is responsible for calling in at the appointed time for their session.  

Do you have a specialty?

I enjoy working with everyone. I specialize in ADHD and neurodiversity. I graduated from an extensive life coach training program, In addition, I am currently working on the last class of a graduate-level Certified Neurodiversity Coach training program, CNC. This preparation enables me to be a more conscientious listener, better prepared to recognize what might be hindering one from reaching his or her goals. Working together, we can identify solutions and/or create personalized structure to help you get back on track and work toward positive change.  

My coaching philosophy

Partnering with clients is a thought-provoking and creative process inspiring clients to maximize their personal and/or professional potential. The process focuses on the present and the future.

 

The belief is that you, the client, are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole and the expert in your own life.

We follow an awareness-action-learning model which involves questions related to your goals and defining your vision of success. 

If you want to create a life that fits, I believe your personal path should be paved by your values and your goals. 

Co-created working relationships are guided by the coach's training and ethical standards. 

Long and short-term goals are determined as are goals for each session.

The coach and client agree on steps for the client to move forward as well as accountability. After the client takes action, we examine what worked and what didn't in order to provide self-awareness and apply that knowledge toward future success.  Your progress is gained at your pace.

How does coaching differ from therapy?

A mental health professional can diagnose a brain-based condition.  Psychiatrists, physicians, and psychiatric nurses can prescribe medications. Their work, and other mental health professionals, can look toward the past, toward the origins of the diagnosis or cause. They may also look at the present. Therapists also focus on improving mental health, exploring personal history, and the origin of symptoms. They are trained and licensed by the State and subject to and adhere to the laws of the State in which they practice.  

Occasionally, coaches and therapists can work together, with a client's permission, toward that client's growth and advancement.  

Life Order Coaching has the utmost respect for mental health professionals and their invaluable work and hopes to convey that we, coaches and mental health professionals, perform different functions.  We are happy to work together to help our clients achieve their goals and very best lives.

According to a study performed by the University of California at Berkley, 40% of our happiness can be determined by "intentional activity."  This means that we can play a large part in driving our own happiness.
