Life Coaching is a relatively new profession that began developing in the late 1990's. I have formally been involved with providing Life Coaching since 2003. Life Coaching is not Psychological Counseling and is not currently regulated by any licensing board in the 50 states and is considered a separate professional discipline from Psychology or Counseling. No diagnosis is given and the person is not seen as having an illness. It is a professional mentoring relationship where the individual is seen as a person capable of assessing where they are currently as an individual and as a result of an interactive mentoring relationship to make the best choices and decisions for their own future. People who have entered the field of Life Coaching often come from a variety of different disciplines and skill sets including education, business, social sciences, human resources, and clergy/spiritual practitioners providing spiritual direction or mentoring. Life Coaching is an interactive process that helps individuals to become more effective in obtaining goals. Life Coaches, among a variety of other areas, may work with individuals on career development, interpersonal relationships, work relationships, or making decisions that would assist them in toward more positive habits supporting well being physically, personally, mentally, relationally, or spiritually. Life Coaching may not be appropriate for the services you are seeking. However, Life Coaching is another alternative for people who do not want to use or to be given a psychological diagnosis but are just seeking to explore making more effective decisions in their life. Professional coaches are trained to listen and observe, to customize their approach to the individual's needs, and to elicit solutions and strategies together with the client. They believe that the client is naturally creative and resourceful and that the coach's job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the individual already has. While the coach provides feedback and an objective perspective, the individual is responsible for taking the steps to produce the results he or she desires.
Life Coaching is usually provided through online sessions through Zoom; however, in-person Life Coaching sessions can also be scheduled out of the Dublin, Ohio office; however, most clients that I work prefer to attend sessions through Zoom. I can provide Life Coaching services to anyone throughout the United States. The cost of Individual Life Coaching sessions is $120.00. To schedule a Life Coaching appointment - use the blue highlighted "Contact Us" at the top of this page. Provide me with your name, email, and phone number and I will forward to you a link that you will be able to use that gives you permission to access my TherapySites scheduling system. You will see no one else's appointments you will just see available appointment times. This system is available 24/7 and is the quickest way to see an available appointment and to get you scheduled.
In addition, to individual life coaching services, as of November, 2023 I am also offering online small groups. However, the emphasis in the online small groups is approaching life issues is from a Christian Perspective. However, for those who do not want to have faith or spirituality issues as part of their sessions I would let you know that in my individual work with people with Life Coaching as well as my work in providing Psychological services I will work with people within their own specific value system. I judge nobody and will respect your individual beliefs and I would want you to know whether spirituality is or is not something that is part of your life that will be honored and respected. In my individual work I truly work with people across a broad variety of belief systems and honor each. However, as I work with small groups I lead the group consistent with Christian, Biblical values and use a Christian Life Coaching approach. I am offering one time online small group events which will involve teaching and interaction with others through zoom. Each single stand alone small group event is scheduled for 1 and 1/2 hours and the cost of each event is $50 (to be paid in advance) of attending a group event.
