Are their professional standards for the coaching industries?
Yes, there is a code of ethics, core competencies, accreditation processes and an International Coach Federation (industry association) that promotes the advancement of coaches. To learn more about this click here: http://www.coachfederation.org/ICF/

How will I know you are the right coach for me?
During our initial conversations and/or discovery session, together we will identify if this is an appropriate fit. So before you say "yes", you will have a sample of what the coaching experience will be like. Until then, click on the ABOUT page to learn more about myself and my approach in coaching.

How do I get started in the coaching process?
If you are interested in beginning the coaching process, please contact me via phone or through email, so we can schedule our initial discovery session to further explore the details of the coaching relationship.

What can you expect from me as your coach?
1. Be a partner in bringing out the best, the deepest, and the truest in you
2. Provide safety, encouragement and support; an environment in which you can relax and explore
3. Respect the confidentiality of the agreements we make
4. Expand your view of what is possible and promote discovery of new insights
5. Give you input, straight feedback and operate as a sounding board
6. Listen carefully to what you say and ask questions that increase awareness
7. Be an on-going resource for you in accomplishing your intentions

What if I sign up for this and decide it is not right for me? Do you have a money back guarantee?
Yes, I call it my "participate and get your money back" guarantee. If after the end of the first month of "charged" services, you don't see immediate measurable results and feel you are not getting a positive return on your investment, we can stop with no questions asked. You will not incur any further charges beyond the first month payment.

    • Click on the Login Link (above, at the top center of this website page).  Then enter the username and password that has been assigned to you.  Don’t have login information yet?  Contact me so we can get an account created for you.
  • I have a password that I use for most of my on-line accounts.  Can I change the password you assigned to me?
    • Yes.  You will need to log in initially using the password I assigned to you.  Once you log in you can change your password at any time under your Client Profile Page.
  • What if I forget or loose my password and login information?
    • If you simply forgot your password, you can still go to the Login Link.  Enter your username and click on the “I Forgot My Password Button”.  You will receive an email shortly with your password included.
    • If you misplaced both your username and your password, contact me via email and I will forward you your information.
  • I’m trying to log in, but it will not accept my username or password, what do I do?

Forms, Documents and Resources Available

  • What makes up a “Welcome Packet” and what do I do with this?
    • By completing the information in the welcome packet, you are providing me with some helpful information so I know best how to support you, guide you and work together with you.  A welcome packet consists of some basic forms, documents and resources that will help to get us started in the coaching process.  It includes a “Client Profile” form, a “Goals” form and also a “Discovery” form.  You will also find our coaching agreement located in this packet.  It is customary for you to complete these items prior to our initial coaching session together.

  • What if I need to reschedule my appointment?
    • It’s easy.  with at least a 24 hour notice, you can reschedule any appointment by using the on-line calendaring system , just follow the following steps:

Paying for the coaching services

  • How do I easily make my payments for my coaching services?
  • I give you three options for payment based on your financial preferences. You can pay in full (which provides you with the greatest savings), in two payments or I have a monthly Cash-Flow option if you prefer to stretch out your payments across the agreed time.
  • Each month you’ll receive an invoice from my practice letting you know the amount committed to for that month.  You can (1) mail a check to the remit to address located right on the invoice or (2) log in to the private client area, click on the “Payments” tab and you will see any outstanding balances due at that time. 
  • What are the various methods of payment I can use to pay for my coaching services?
    • Check or Credit Card. Have your coach process your payments for you each month on a credit/debit card
    • To pay by Check:  to pay by check, simply use the “remit to” address located right in the body of the invoice you’ll receive monthly from my practice.
    • To pay by Credit Card: when you receive you monthly invoice, click on the link at the bottom of the invoice (Or log into the private client area) and click on the “Payments” tab.  Here you can either enter your credit card number or pay pal information and my system will automatically (and securely) process your payment.
    • To have your coach process your payments for you:  Complete the “Credit Card Authorization” form found under the Documents section of the private client area.  Once I have the authorization and billing information, I will automatically process your payments for you as outlined in the authorization form.
