How do you deliver your materials?

I deliver my products and services primarily online.  Life Coaching Sessions are available by Skype or Phone.  Products are emailed out via MailChimp.  This allows me to deliver my products and services in a timely manner, regardless of location.
For locals in the Salem Oregon area, in person sessions can be arranged.

What do you help with?

As a Life Coach, I help clients to move forward towards their goals and aspirations.  While I’ve assisted with a wide variety of topics, my specialty is Communication and building Connection with others.

Socially: Being able to make and keep friends by learning how to expand relationships with the people we enjoy.

Professionally: Leveraging our strengths to make accomplishments and to invest in the networking we need to be recognized and supported.

Romantically: Opening up with our feelings and desires to increase the shared connection we have with loved ones.

Personally: Owning our strengths, victories, and knowledge to enable us to grow to be stronger and more capable.

What does your training as a life coach include?

I have paired my BS in Communications and minor in health with my training as a life coach. I have my Whole Person Coaching Certification (WPCC), and I’ve completed my ICF training. I am currently working on my Associate Coaching Certification (ACC) with ICF.

ICF is the International Coaching Federation and is an organization that trains and certifies life coaches worldwide. They are one of the most prominent life coaching certification organization today.

How long have you been Life Coaching?

I’ve been Coaching since 2002. Since then I’ve been expanding my knowledge and skill set with my traditional education, life coach training and hands on experience.  I moved forward with my own Life Coaching business in 2014 and haven’t looked back.

Why did you become a life coach?

I love the difference it makes for the people I’ve helped by being there for support and encouragement. There’s nothing like witnessing the amazing growth people make as they reach for and achieve their dreams.

My career as a life coach means that I can help more people than I could have ever hoped for as an amateur. Communication and seeing people succeed have always been my passions and I get to experience both of those every day as a Life Coach.  Retirement is the last thing on my mind.
