Where are you located?

I am located in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland. However, life coaching is not restricted to my physical location. Life coaching is very flexible and we will meet by phone in any time zone. I currently work with clients throughout the United States from Colorado to Florida to New York, as well as, local clients in the Baltimore area.

What’s the difference between coaching and counseling?

There are many differences between these professions. However, one similarity is that both life coaching and mental health counseling require specialized training. As your coach, with a background in counseling, I bring my therapy knowledge with me to coaching but there is a distinct separation between counseling and coaching. Coaching is about the ‘here and now’ and is goal-oriented. Therapy tends to be process-oriented rather than action-oriented. Additionally, while therapy focuses on ‘problems’, coaching focuses on ‘strengthens’. For more on this topic, click here.

Tony Robbins has a great explanation of this as well. Click here to read his thoughts on this topic.

What if I need therapy or counseling for depression, PTSD, or anxiety?

If your needs are better suited for mental health therapy, I can help you if you are located in the state of Maryland where I am licensed. To find out more about my therapy practice, click here.

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept Venmo and Ivy Pay for payments. Health insurance does not cover life coaching, unfortunately. For rates, contact me.

When is payment expected?

Payment is taken prior to each session. We will review payment expectations and methods before our first session to ensure a clear understanding of the payment and cancellation policy.

What if I need to cancel?

I understand that life is busy and schedules can change quickly. However, when you book your session, it’s your time… whether you attend or not. I prefer it immensely if you attend your sessions regularly and on -time, however, if you choose not to attend your session, it’s still your appointment time! If you encounter a true emergency that requires cancelling, please call me as soon as you can so that your appointment can be rescheduled.

As a courtesy, I prefer for 48 hours notice for all cancellations. If less than 24 hours notice is received, then the session will be charged at the full rate. If cancellations are repetitive, we’ll work together to assess if Life Coaching is right for you at this time.

Why such a strict cancellation policy?

My experience has revealed to me a strong, positive, correlation between client success and regular appointment attendance. I want to see you succeed and attending regularly scheduled appointments (without last minute cancellations) is a big part of the success puzzle.
