I'm passionate about seeing women reach their full potential in their relationship with God. I believe if we start there, with our relationships with God, everything else will fall into place. When our relationship with God is hitting on all cylinders we can hear him speak to us about every other area of our life including our marriage, family, work, finances and anything else that matters to us.
As Christ-followers, we follow Christ, so wherever he is leading is where we want to go.
I believe Christian Life Coaching is great way to evaluate where we are, determine where we want to be and begin to take the steps to get there. And I would be honored to help you on that journey!
The first step into Christian Life Coaching is a simple one: A Free Discovery Call! Here you will learn more about the coaching process and we can both determine if coaching is right for you and if we are a good fit to move forward into the coaching experience together.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Life Coaching?
The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
A coach is a collaborative partner, not a hired expert. A coach is not a consultant, mentor, counselor, or adviser because he or she is non-directive. We say that coaching is done “from the inside out” rather than “from the outside in”.
Coaches have no agenda, no personal investment in a client taking one path versus another. Instead, coaches will listen for and focus on the gap between where a client is now and where the client senses God is calling them to be.
Coaching is the art of asking powerful questions that prompt clients to think about things they’ve never considered before, or may have dismissed as impossible.
A really good coach is masterful at “staying in the questions”, prompting clients to listen to and express their hearts & minds, their core values — what Scripture would call “the desires of their hearts.” Coaches then challenge clients to move proactively toward the clarified vision that results from such non-directive exploration.

What is the difference between coaching and counseling?
Counselors and therapists are, like consultants, hired for their expertise. They have specialized training in such things as healthy communication, good parenting, effective social skills, mental/emotional & spiritual health, and the like. They are skilled in uncovering underlying reasons for dysfunction and debilitating conditions such as depression, anxiety, and other mood and thought disorders.
Coaching is about stability and growth rather than dysfunction and healing. Whereas psychotherapy & counseling are primarily about the past and present, coaching is primarily about the future.
A person in need of healing is not yet ready for coaching and should be referred to a therapist. There are more basic issues to be addressed before they can effectively pursue greater fulfillment. (from Professional Christian Coaching Institute)
