Frequently Asked Questions
Does coaching work?
Rather than take up space here, I've written an article about it here.
What is a typical session like?
No session is typical. The structure is similar with defined goals and expectations. We will work through homework, dive into common themes and challenges, and brainstorm solutions. All sessions are coach-facilitated and client-agenda led. Clients get out what they put in.
Are you insured?
LLC, LLC is a licensed and insured business in Washington, DC.
What if I'm not in DC, can I still work with you?
Absolutely! Over half of my clients live outside of the DC-Metro area and of those most sessions are conducted by phone or Skype. If you'd like to have an in person session, additional fees may be incurred and time must be scheduled well in advance.
What is the difference between a certified and uncertified coach?
A certified coach has graduated from a school or program that is accredited through the International Coaching Federation. Additional certifications like the ACC, PCC and MCC signify increased knowledge and commitment to the profession with additional certified hours. As a Professional Certified Coach, I have over 500 certified hours. In addition to the training and knowledge, certified coaches abide by ICF's Code of Ethics which protects the privacy and confidentiality of the client at all times.
What can I expect out of a coaching package?
Results vary from client to client. As the coach, I work with you to define goals, create action plans and manage accountability. In the event that goals change or a deeper issue is lingering that needs to be addressed, the pace and theme of our sessions may change. Patience and trust is the name of the game.
Why is coaching so expensive?
As a certified coach, hundreds of hours, continuing education and professional development are required to bring you the highest level of service. Fees included in your coaching package involve the time spent in preparing content, customizing material and facilitating in depth sessions. On the surface it may seem that you are paying for a specific amount of time, but under the surface, hours were spent in creating the optimal experience for you.
