I come alongside you with life coaching,
from a distinctively biblical worldview,
to help you live and love well!
What is coaching?
As a coach, I encourage you by actively listening, asking questions, and helping you clarify your goals and values. I help you explore where you are in life, where you want to be, and steps you can take to get there. Your journey is unique, so my coaching is individualized to your needs. Your goal might be spiritual growth, gaining a new perspective, finishing something you’ve already started, or establishing new habits. Maybe you need support and feedback because you want to live and love well through a challenging relationship, circumstance, or transition.
Some topics my life experience and training prepare me to coach for include: strengths, reaching goals, spiritual growth, relationships, forgiveness, emotional well-being, marriage, parenting, or living well through a season of waiting, transition, stress, or suffering.
Why a biblical worldview?
At its core, a biblical worldview is Christ-centered. Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, real life change is possible! We do not depend on simply human effort for growth and change. Jesus remakes us from the inside out. The Bible is historically accurate and given to us by God so we might know Him and learn to live the way He created us to live. It grounds us with truth and provides perspective on how to live life.
Who is coaching for?
We all have seasons of life when we could benefit from being coached. During times of change, challenge, or suffering we could be of great help to have a caring, skilled person joining us in our journey. Coaching is different from counseling. Coaching is focused on the future, for developing ourselves and reaching goals. There are times in life when we may need support from a counselor who can help us look back to the past and gain healing. My training and my passion is to help others take steps forward.
What are your qualifications?
I am a certified Christian Life Coach (Board of Christian Life Coaching) and commit to uphold the American Association of Christian Counselors’ Code of Ethics. I am trained by Gallup for coaching with CliftonStrengths assessment and resources. Through Light University Online, I have completed a Diploma in Christian Life Coaching. See my Meet Me page to learn more, as well as my LinkedIn page.
Why do you use Gallup’s CliftonStrengths assessment?
I ask clients to take the CliftonStrengths assessment at the beginning of our coaching relationship in order to help them discover more fully who they are and to allow me get to know them. This assessment is positive, helps you discover your God-given strengths, and is growth oriented. It provides your Top 5 Strengths, out of Gallup’s list of 34 possible strengths. CliftonStrengths is more individualized than other personality assessments; there is only a 1 in 278,000 chance of another person having the same Top 5 Strengths as you! My Top 5 Strengths are Responsibility, Empathy, Input, Connectedness, and Positivity. Understanding our Strengths helps us succeed in all aspects of life, including relationships, careers, and living well through difficulties.
How much do you charge for coaching?
Growth and reaching goals has real value in our lives, which is why paying for coaching is worthwhile. This is the beginning of my professional coaching career, so for now I am asking for payment in the form of donation to Food for the Hungry, Prison Fellowship, or Samaritan’s Purse. I am not affiliated with any of these organizations. My pricing is comparatively low, and will be reassessed in the future. By giving financially, it increases your sense of accountability and investment in your coaching experience.
All Coaching Options begin with a free half-hour conversation designed to determine if being coached by me is the right next step for you
Strengths Conversations (3 sessions of one hour each) – Discover and live out your Strengths! The total fees of $150 include the cost for the All 34 CliftonStrengths Access code. We discuss your Top 5 Strengths in our first conversation, the sequence of all 34 Strengths in our second conversation, and then explore how you can live fully into your Strengths in our third conversation. This is a life-changing experience for understanding who you are, growing in emotional and relational perspective, and for success using your talents.
Life-In-Christ Conversations (6 sessions of one hour each) – A series of six conversations for experiencing heart and life change because of what Jesus does in our lives. Topics include identity, our hearts and motivations, struggles with weakness or sin, and living a joyful, fruit-filled life as a Christ-follower. These conversations walk us through transforming steps to experience relationship with Jesus and the power of the gospel in daily life!
Individualized Conversations – Your journey is unique, so my coaching is individualized to your needs. Our conversations might focus on spiritual growth, relationships, forgiveness, emotional well-being, marriage, parenting, or living well through a season of waiting, transition, stress, or suffering.
- Single Conversation – Great for when you have a specific topic you’d like to talk discuss.
- Series of Conversations – Together, we can create an individualized plan to fit your journey!
