What if I could give you a way to ensure you develop a full and exciting life before and during retirement?

We all want our golden years to be our best years, but it’s easier said than done.

After experiencing the empty nest syndrome and a career that has come to an end, it is natural to feel a lack of purpose and passion for life.

Life is a continuum.  Why not begin before that transition happens?

What is Life Coaching?

Whether you want to travel the world, start a new business endeavor, or simply find daily excitement in your life, personal coaching can help you achieve it!

Coaching is an effective process that supports individuals in creating something new for themselves and in attaining work/life balance. I coach my clients by providing perspective and support for self-knowledge as they accomplish their business and/or personal goals.

Coaching is a valuable process for:

  • Designing life intentions that include both your business and personal goals.
  • Building your personal integrity and learning to base all decisions on your values.
  • Making meaningful personal changes that reduce stress and simplify your life.
  • Freeing up energy and other resources to attract what you want for your life.
  • Achieving the work/life balance you desire so you can feel fulfilled.

Together, we can make these things come true for you!

There’s nothing like coaching.

To understand the value of it, you have to experience it for yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do life coaches relate to sports coaches?

WebMD describes it this way: "Just like the people who push athletes to greatness in sports, life and wellness coaches push their clients to find success and satisfaction from their job or lifestyle."  

What's the difference between a life coach and a psychologist?

According to Forbes, the key difference is that psychologists focus on looking back to the past to heal, while coaches focus on moving forward. Coaches may use therapy tools, but their intention is always to "mirror a mindset shift with an external goal in the world. It’s not just about healing; it’s about positively creating."
