CREATE Your New Life With

Confidence and Clarity

Life coaching helps clients discover and clarify, what it is the client wants to achieve.  A coach encourages self discovery, facilitates client-generated strategies and ideas, and holds the client responsible and accountable with respect and compassion. If you're feeling stuck and unmotivated, life coaching services can help change that. It is akin to getting a well warn bicycle, cleaning it up, greasing the gears and giving it a fresh coat of paint.   


Coaches recognize that clients have an innate ability to discover their own solutions when given support. Through the process of coaching, clients learn, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life.


Coaching is a learning and developmental model with an emphasis on creating awareness so that clients can choose goals that promote their growth and development, while gaining what they feel are the qualities of a fulfilling life.

  • Evaluate new strategies

  • Apply what you've learned

  • Emerge into your new life with Confidence and Clarity

Process for Online Life Coaching Sessions

What Life Coaching Is Not

The client initiates all scheduled calls at the following number 401-486-5642 for all scheduled meetings.  At that point the session can than begin on Skype or Facetime if preferable. Otherwise a face to face session or phone session are also available.  

Life coaching is NOT psychotherapy.  It does not treat or diagnose medical or psychological conditions.  It is meant to guide, support and inspire a client.
