FAQ’s About Coaching


I am a Certified Life Coach, a Certified Professional Coach and a Certified Divorce Coach®.

For more information on my background, please visit the “About” tab here.

 My practice is equally divided between both areas.

How do I begin the coaching process?

Contact me personally at 949.302.6211, or schedule an appointment right here on the website. Your first session is complimentary.

When we meet, we will discuss goals, your focus  areas and basically build the foundations for what follows.  You will be emailed a questionnaire prior to that meeting.  When we get together we can then decide what schedule will work for you.


What are your fees?

Fees are on a sliding scale based on your ability to pay, but are usually $100. per 60 minute hour. Our sessions can also be divided into four 30-minute meetings. It is expected that you will commit to two hours per month for at least three months. This is not for financial purposes, but in order to have significant results. You may achieve your goals in those three months, or you may wish to continue. You will know when you are ready to end!

I also offer packages with substantial discounts for multiple sessions over a longer  period.  Payments can be spread out and I accept most major credit cards as well.  All my rates include updates and spot coaching via email. I also will frequently text my clients with something  motivational, or just to check in on them.

My goal is to see you fulfill your goals.

If you are thinking “I can’t afford this” can you afford not to? The long-term effects of coaching will pay for itself many times over in quality of life and carry-over into other areas as well.


What makes life coaching so convenient?

Our sessions can be conducted face-to-face in my office located in Dana Point or a mutually convenient place. We can also have our meetings via phone or Skype™, which is a free program that can be downloaded and with the use of webcams would allow us to “video chat.” This also allows me to coach anyone, anywhere, at any time. Location is never an obstacle.


How does coaching different from therapy?

A coach deals with the present and the future. Together we will construct a path to achieve your goals and I will support you the entire way. We do not look at what has happened and why, but instead focus on where you want to go and how you will get there. I always like to say that a therapist is an archaeologist, while a coach is an architect. One looks at where you have been while the other helps you plan where to go. Unfortunately, since this is not a  mental health service, it is not reimbursable through most health plans.
