Frequently Asked Questions
Do you meet in person, on the phone, or via video?
How long will it take?
I ask all new clients to commit to a three-month program where we meet at least every other week. Once we have completed our second coaching appointment, the coaching frequency can be adjusted basted on client needs. I meet with some clients on a weekly basis, every couple of weeks, and some I meet with once a month. Frequently clients come back for "tune-up" appointments on an as-needed basis as their life situations change. Whatever the coaching cadence, the length of the partnership is client-driven.
Why do you ask for a three-month commitment?
Many of my clients are looking for support in changing behaviors that have been around for years. Unfortunately, there are few quick fixes when it comes to significant shifts in perspective, structure, or behavior, so committing to a process for at least three months has proven to be the most effective way to get long-lasting results.
How many times will we need to meet?
This, too, depends on the client. Some clients feel their goals are met after the three-month commitment. Some clients prefer an ongoing relationship to ensure the support that their “new normal” requires. Other clients reach out because they have a current, short-term need, such as a difficult employee conversation or a significant job change challenge. The tenure of our relationship is completely in the client’s hands.
Will you tell me what to do?
I use a therapist/counselor now. Does coaching replace that?
I suspect I may have ADHD or have some ADHD characteristics. Can you help?
Yes. Although I work with clients who aren’t formally diagnosed with ADHD, my expertise is in helping clients struggling with the executive functioning issues largely associated with ADHD. If you think you may be challenged with ADHD, I would encourage you to seek assistance from a licensed mental health professional.
You can also fill out the ADHD self evaluation to learn whether you might benefit from the expertise of a trained coach and productivity professional.
How much does coaching cost?
The session cost is $165 per 50-minute coaching session. But the coaching value extends far beyond the 50-minute session time. Ongoing clients will also recieve reasonable text and email support between appointments.
