There’s nothing better than creating the life you want to live! But it’s not easy doing it alone. Sometimes you need help finding your way. That’s where I come in.

Life and career coaching can help you construct your own future. Through life coaching, you’ll find clarity, support, and ultimately – your own personal power.  

Whether you want to focus on your personal or professional life, I can help. You’ll have the opportunity to use your unique skills to redefine what it means to be successful for you. Maybe you’ve been held back by self-doubt or fear. But here’s the thing – You have the answers within you. I can help you find them.

Over the last decade, Beyond The Words coaches have helped hundreds of people and organizations move beyond hardship and despair toward health and achievement.

FAQs

Q IS CAREER & LIFE COACHING RIGHT FOR ME?

If you feel like you aren’t where you want to be, coaching can be a good fit. We’ll help you clarify what matters, gain new insights, and set your goals. It’s okay if you don’t know where you want to end up. We’ll figure it out together. We often help people who’re going through life transitions and they need support and accountability.

That said, coaching isn’t for everyone. Some people could use the support of a mental health therapist. If you’re having a hard time coping with your day-to-day life, a therapist would be a better fit.

Q HOW SHOULD I CHOOSE A COACH?

The best way to know if a life coach is a good fit if to talk to them! Schedule a free consultation to explore your goals, ask some questions, get a sense of the person. Look for someone who lets you feel like you can be yourself.

It’s pretty much impossible to open up to someone who makes you feel uncomfortable (although discomfort might come with hard work, but that’s a different animal #truestory).

A good life coach will help you look more deeply into yourself. They’ll “get you.”

Q WILL A COACH TELL ME WHAT TO DO?

You are the expert in your own life. Coaches provide you with an outsider’s perspective as well as support and accountability.

But you will hold the answers. The answers are already inside of you. Together, we create the environment to help you find them. But no, I won’t tell you what to do.

Q WHAT DOES A COACHING SESSION LOOK LIKE?

I primarily meet with clients via teleconference, which hello - No traffic! No waiting rooms! You can totally be in your pajamas and that’s cool with us. I currently have office space in Denver, so if you’re local, we can meet there too.

During our session, we will often do a check in, celebrate your successes, set some goals, and explore your thoughts and feelings and actions. There will be moments of education, but you’ll mostly learn about yourself.

Q CAN YOU BE MY THERAPIST, IF THAT'S WHAT I NEED?

I am a licensed mental health therapist, which makes us especially qualified to provide coaching services. But I don’t currently provide counseling services. If you need therapy, we’ll work together to find someone who can meet your needs.

Sometimes that means switching to counseling altogether or simply adding counseling with another provider onto the work we are doing in coaching.
