Individual Coaching

What happens during our first session?

Our first session is an opportunity to meet and mutually determine if this is a “good match.” In general, I will be focused on the following questions:

  • What is happening in your life right now that is leading you to seek help?
  • What have you tried so far to address the issues and concerns?
  • What do you really want? If this process is successful for you, how will your life look different when we are finished?

By the end of our session, I will be able to tell you if I think I can help you – OR if you can be better served by someone else.

If we decide to work together, I will provide a recommended plan for how we move forward including frequency of meetings, resources that I believe would be beneficial etc.

You are welcome to ask me ANY questions you have that will help you make a decision you feel good about.

What helps you determine if we are a “good match”?

In addition to the information you share from your intake packet, I am assessing three areas when we first meet:

  • Do I have experience treating the problem you have?
  • Do you have an openness to learning mindset? The #1 predictor of success in any kind of personal development process is dependent upon your increasing self-awareness and a willingness to learn from everything that happens in your life.
  • Are you coachable? What this means is, “Can you take feedback from me and allow yourself to be guided into a new direction?”

Couples Coaching

What happens in our first session?

Our first session is an opportunity to meet and mutually determine if this is a “good match.” Together we will look at:

  • What is happening currently in your relationship that is leading you to seek help?
  • What have you tried so far to address the issues and concerns?
  • What do you really want? If this process is successful, how will your relationship look different when we are finished?

I will allow time for each of you to speak into these questions.

By the end of our session, I will be able to tell you if I think I can help you – OR if you can be better served by someone else.

If we decide to work together, I will provide a recommended plan for how we move forward including frequency of meetings, resources that I believe would be beneficial etc.

You are welcome to ask me ANY questions you have that will help you make a decision you feel good about.

General Questions

Are you a therapist or a coach?

The short answer is Yes! I’m trained in both modalities and have blended the two, so you get the best of both worlds. My training as a therapist allows me to understand how your history has impacted your development and your current situation. My training as a coach offers the added benefit of pointing you towards specific action steps that will ensure you meet your goals.

Do you accept Medicaid or insurance?

I do not work with Medicaid or any insurance companies. Upon request, I will provide you an invoice that you may submit to your insurance company.

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept cash, checks made out to Compassionate Therapy Inc, payment through Venmo or PayPal.

What is your cancellation policy?

I require 24 hours notice to cancel; otherwise, you will be charged the full amount.
