Life coaching is about building on the positive, not dwelling on the negative. We examine what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be.
Denise’s approach as a life coach is to listen, ask questions, encourage, inspire and empower you. Your job is to arrive with an agenda, be open to self-examination, be held accountable along the way and keep an open mind. You will work together to build your confidence so you can move forward on your life’s journey.

Is Coaching Like Therapy?
Life coaching is not like therapy. Therapists work with clients to heal old wounds and resolve issues that negatively affect your life. Dealing with the roots of emotional issues and working with clinical diagnosis is best accomplished through therapy, not coaching. Life coaching is about dealing with issues in the present and looking forward to future plans.
Why Hire a Life Coach?
First, a Life Coach provides objectivity. By viewing your life from a different perspective, I can offer you fresh ideas or perceptions about your situation. Or I can ask you just the right questions to help you think about your life and your options in an unusual way. Second, a Life Coach provides support. I am fully committed to your success. When you experience an obstacle or challenge, I’m here to help you find a way over or under it. Third, a Life Coach serves as an accountability partner. Change can be uncomfortable and for some it’s downright scary. It’s my job to keep you moving forward – at whatever pace works for you.
How long will we work together?
Denise recommends a minimum of one month. The results-oriented nature of coaching encourages some to continue longer term, but this, like other life decisions, is always yours to make.
What can I expect?
Before making a commitment, you and Denise will chat, either via Skype or by telephone, during a free complimentary consultation. This gives you a chance to assess whether the two of you are a good fit. You’ll discuss what you’d like to work on and how Denise can help. She will also give you package pricing and will talk in detail about your options.
When you are ready to commit, you can schedule your first session, which last 60 minutes. You drive the session with your agenda – what you would like to discuss, reflect back on and take away. Denise will help guide you in creating your action plan – and your new direction that allows you to express exactly who you are.
How are you living your life – by default or by design?
Denise can help you live by design.
