Frequently Asked Questions

How do you work? What can I expect?
I will do everything I can to help you reach your goals.
I will always see you as your highest self.
I will always be transparent, authentic and open with you on what I am thinking.
I will hold a safe space, so you can be who you are, not whom you think you shouldbe, so change can happen.And…I will hold you accountable to the commitments you make to yourself.
I will nudge you out of your comfort zone.
I will challenge you to face your fears.
I will push you to expand and grow……gently.
What kind of clients do you work best with?
I have one simple criterion, that you are ready and willing to do what it takes to get unstuck and start shining in the life you want!
That means, you are ready and willing to:

  • Show up and take action
  • Be open to thinking and doing things differently
  • Face your fears and get a little uncomfortable
  • Take responsibility for the results in your life

We can figure out the rest – the WHAT, the WHY, the HOW – together!

What kind of client do you NOT work well with?
If you are not willing to do the necessary inner & outer work, or if you have a tendency to blame outside circumstances or people for your results, then we are probably not going to be a good fit together.
Why should I choose you? Can't I just do this on my own?
My guess is you probably have tried to do this on your own. I know. Asking for help wasn’t one of my strong suits either. :)

The truth is, enlightenment is in the implementation. You can read about life lessons all day long, but until you consistently apply them to your life, you simply won’t reap any of the benefits.

But life gets busy, and you have a tendency to get overwhelmed and stressed, and prioritize others before yourself. It can be hard to make time for you.

That’s where I come in.

I’ve been where you are. I know what it feels like to have a harsh inner critic, and I know how it feels to fear that you may never fulfill your potential, all the while paralyzed by the fear of failure. I’ve gone through the pitfalls and doubts and stress and fear, and I know how to get out of them and move forward, step-by-step.

I can help you get clear on what you want and what exact next step to take. And I will hold you accountable for actually doing what you committed to. When you run into resistance, I’ll help you work through it. I will ask you questions you want to avoid. I will cheer you on AND challenge you.

Why do the private coaching packages start at 3 months?
While coaching is powerful, and some of my clients have seen changes after just a couple of sessions, the work we’re doing here – shifting mindsets, changing behavior, establishing new habits – they all take time.

I know you would like the changes to happen faster. I’ve been there. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve given myself a chunk of time, say two weeks, to “figure things out”. :)

But it simply doesn’t work that way.

If you are willing to invest the time, you will make changes and see results that last.

Having said that, I understand that we may discover we’re not a good fit together after a few sessions. This is why I offer my 60-day “INVEST IN YOURSELF” guarantee (see What I Offer for more details). If you don’t feel the connection or it isn’t working for you for any reasons, just let me know.

I won’t take it personally. I will be more than happy to honor my guarantee, and help you find a coach who is a better fit, because your success is my top priority. I want you to thrive and shine and live a purpose-based life whether we work together or not.

Does this really work? What results can I expect?
YES! You can expect:

  • Deeper connection with yourself
  • A clear sense of your life purpose, what you want and who you want to be
  • Ability to have a positive impact on the world using your unique gift
  • Ability to take action despite of fear
  • Ability to deal with confusion and overwhelm
  • A sense of fulfillment, purpose and meaning
  • And much more…

I'm very busy. How much time do I have to devote to this?
You have to commit to showing up and being fully present for our weekly coaching sessions.

In addition, you will need to devote a couple of hours each week to doing the exercises on your own. We can determine what works best for you.

Remember, your results will depend greatly on your own focus and commitment to the process, including the amount of time you’re willing to commit. You’re worth it!

I have so much I want to fix. How do I know where to start?
Start with the area of least satisfaction, the area that is causing the most pain and suffering for you. Your whole life is inter-connected, and when you start to change one area, the rest will naturally follow.

I will help you gain clarity on where you are and where you want to be. We will map out a step-by-step action plan that is doable.

And once you acquire the skill of how to improve an area of dissatisfaction, you can use it over and over again to get yourself closer to the life you want.

Growing, evolving, expanding is a lifelong process.

I've never spent on myself like this before. How can I justify the cost?
Instead of a cost, think of it as an investment. What is the cost of not making this investment in yourself, in terms of the amount of frustration, overwhelm and fear you will experience, in terms of unfulfilled potential?

You deserve this investment, and the world needs YOU as your HIGHEST SELF!
