What is Life Coaching?
It is important to clarify that coaching is not therapy or consulting. Coaching is not appropriate for those who are currently suffering from chronic depression, anxiety, neurosis, or addictions.
My three areas of specialization under the umbrella of transitions: Caregiver Balance, Grief Acceptance, and Emotional Intelligence.
As a Certified Life Coach:
I will work your issues through with you as a detached partner — not work you towards resolution with offering professional help.
I will see your strengths and areas that require further development — not provide diagnosis as a medical and behavioural science expert.
I will use my insights and intuition to lead and guide you to fulfillment — and keep my personal feelings and thoughts removed.
I will guide you to your own solutions — not advise you to solve your problems.
I will focus on you as a person — not focus on results.
I will support you as you work to achieve a certain outcome — not to produce certain results.

My coach helped me to organize my priorities, as well as to define what it is that I actually want to move towards. What I want to do for the next phase of my life and how I want to live those next 20 years.
