Life Coaching

IMG_2284Howdy Mama, there are a lot of “coaches” out there that offer a whole lot of stuff and it can be overwhelming. I know a lot of sites have very brief descriptions of what they offer. This is often the case because they want to sell you quick. But hiring a life coach is a big deal. Take a minute to read through this page so you can make an informed decision.

What is Life Coaching? Not going into the long definition, but this will give you an idea. It is key for you to know that coaching is NOT counseling. Coaching is for moms who are healthy enough to move forward in their lives and achieve their goals with help.

What is my brand of coaching? (This list was inspired by this article.)

  • WORLDVIEW-  I am a certified Christian Life Coach so all of my resources and counsel and perspectives are biblically based. I am crazy about Jesus and I want you to be crazy about Him, too. I’m not gonna lie, if you are not a Christian my style of coaching is going to drive you crazy and we’re probably not a good match.
  • STYLE- My style of coaching is full of grace, very personal, dynamic, gentle, encouraging, firm and fun. You’re going to laugh. A lot. And even the non-criers tend to shed more tears than they like to admit. I get down to the nitty-gritty in a way that embraces who you are, every part. Even the ugly stuff.
  • SACRED- I want to help you create a sacred space where you build a motherhood that is uniquely yours and one you love. I am incredibly encouraging and supportive and I will believe you can be a better mom even (and especially) when you do not. You are safe here. You matter to me.
  • ACCOUNTABILITY- I hold my clients accountable for what they say they’re going to do. This is the magic of coaching at its best. You will be amazed how much you will accomplish with help to pursue forward-motion towards your goals.
  • ACCEPTANCE- Our coach-client partnership is one of acceptance and respect. I accept you JUST AS YOU ARE, right where you are. I ask that you accept me as I am as well.
  • FOCUS- My goal is to help you get focused on what you love, value and want from life. I want you to come “alive” in your motherhood and know how to maintain a positive, effective and Jesus-focused perspective on yourself and your world.
  • SYSTEMS- I love to help mothers design systems that work for them and give them room in their lives so they can do what they really love to do: have a balanced life, spend time with their families and pursue their dreams.
  • MINDSET- I will help you to trust Christ more and let go of patterns of thinking that hinder your ability to live a life worthy of His calling. To work with me is to undergo a paradigm shift in your thinking. Your inner critic and negativity do not scare me. I see past the critics and judges to the loving, capable, strong, brave, inspiring, unique mother you are.
  • CONFIDENTIAL- I live a life of integrity, and therefore confidentiality is imperative. Your whole self is safe with me. You hate motherhood but wish you didn’t? We can handle that together. Resent your kids for having a childhood you didn’t? No problem. You are safe here.

My Ideal Client

Type 1: This mother is usually overwhelmed by the demands of life but loves her babies to death. She wants to be the mother Christ desires for her to be but has a hard time wrapping her mind around what that might look like. She is fatigued and burned-out but has a grit inside of her that won’t give up on her role as a mother, even if she has been down in the dumps for a while or her house is in absolute chaos. She just needs an understanding person who understands the perils and joys of motherhood to help her out of her funk and up to the next level. This mama also has a deep desire to grow in her relationship with Christ (even though she may feel stuck and not know how). She is serious about her faith. She is ready to grow.

I work best with this kind of mama because this was me early on in my motherhood.

Type 2: This mother has a good bead on certain areas of motherhood but really needs help achieving her goals in a couple other areas. She is a bit more established than the first mother and has a solid idea of what she wants her motherhood to look like. She is more comfortable in her own skin than ever before but would like some feedback on how she can grow in new ways. She’s the mom who can run her house smoothly but her eating is out of control. Or perhaps she is gifted at work and her kids are happy but her house is in complete disarray and she can’t find anything. She is serious about her faith. She is ready to grow.

I work best with this kind of mama because this was me just a few years ago.

What Am I Like?

Though I’d love you to think this is me…

IMG_1970

What’s more accurate is this….

IMG_2017

I am warm, fun, responsive, personable and compassionate. I am highly attuned to the emotions, needs and motivations of others. I am very good at helping you to see the best in you, the good in you and what unique gifts you offer to the unique life Christ has blessed you to live for Him. I can see your potential and I want you to realize it.

I will inspire you to grow. And I will help you get there.

I am also very sensitive, supportive, empathetic, insightful and enthusiastic. I am organized and persuasive. I am a natural leader and can sometimes be very firm in my delivery, but am more than happy to adjust my approach based on your preference. Harmony is important to me and I work hard to achieve it.

I value faith, family, home, health, friendships, learning and relationships.

  • Email me first so we can set up a time and you can fill out a questionnaire.
  • This is required first just so I can get a bead on where you are. It helps us to optimize our prayer time together. I’ll already know what is on your heart so we can dive right in.
