FAQ

What is coaching?

Coaching is a powerful dynamic relationship between two people—you and me. It’s not instructing, advising, cheer leading or problem solving; it’s asking questions, listening (sometimes for what’s not being said), and shining a light on what you already know to be true (you just may not know you know how digalicious you are yet). My clients are already uber awesome and don’t need fixing. I offer support to enhance the skills, resources and creativity you already have to achieve kick-in-the-pants-spaztastic results. We take a look at what’s working in your life to pow-bang-zoom you into more of that, and what’s not working in your life to drop all that like sour pickles on hotcakes.

Simply put, coaching is about being more of who you want to be and less of who you don’t.

How is coaching different from therapy?

Therapy tends to focus on your past, in order to bring you into your present state of living. Coaching focuses on your right-here-right-now state of living, in order to bring you into your future state of living. Coaching is all about where you are right now and moving forward from that space—bridging the gap between where you are now and where you want to go. As your coach, I won’t analyze or diagnose you because I’m not the expert on you or your behavior—you are.

How much does coaching cost?

Different coaches charge various ranges of rates for various types of coaching. The details on my rates are right here.

What kind of people do you work with?

Women of the human variety. Mostly, women who want change. No, need change. No—are willing to dig deep and create the change, be the change they want to see in their lives.

Are you gay?

Yup, but you don’t have to be to work with me.

Are you trying to make your clients gay?

Umm…no. That’s not really how being gay works. What I want for my clients is for you to see the brilliance you hide inside, and work on ways to let it run hog-wild in your life.

Do you only work with gay people?

Nope. While I do work with the LGBTQ community around coming out of the closet, I also work with the human community around busting your authentic self out of the closet, as well. Coming out isn’t always about sexuality, but about honoring who you are on the inside and letting that fine specimen of a human being shine everywhere you go. You might be gay, you might not be; neither is a prerequisite for booking my coaching services.

Got more questions? Contact me and we’ll chat it out. No obligation. We don’t even have to talk about coaching. Seriously.
