Why You're Stuck
The reason smart, hardworking, accomplished people sometimes get stuck is that they try to solve the wrong problem. I’ve had clients hire me to help them find a new job when the job is actually not the problem. The job is fine. The problem is they need to learn to LEAVE at 6:00 and have a LIFE. Once that becomes clear to both of us, they mobilize incredible resources to address the real goal: creating a life. And they’re off and running.
My Commitment to You
My first task is to be a quick study for what’s true for you, your whole picture – the pieces you’re aware of and those that you aren’t. I do this by listening to you, asking you a lot of questions, many of which you have never been asked before, offering you self-assessments if they seem appropriate, and then listening to you some more.

Fees and Logistics
-- Monthly fees for individuals vary depending on the length and frequency of the scheduled sessions and how much “on call” access you would like. Every person’s needs are different. During your initial consultation, we can determine what structure suits your needs best, and your monthly fee will be determined accordingly. Most coaching arrangements include unlimited email contact with me.
-- Sessions generally take place by phone or in-person at my Boston-area office. Corporate clients can arrange half-day or whole-day series to be held on-site.
How Coaching is Different from Counseling or Therapy
Coaching differs from therapy in many ways. Coaching focuses on the present and where you want to go from here. Therapy focuses more on the past and how you got to here. Coaching is action-oriented, and therapy is understanding-oriented. Coaching uses a training and sports model: the client wants to learn new skills and achieve a higher level of performance. Therapy uses a medical model: the patient needs to be cured. If I see that a therapist would better serve the challenges you are experiencing, I will be candid with you about it and refer you to a therapist. Some people can work with a therapist and a coach concurrently, and others prefer to do therapy work first and coaching next.
