How Personal, Career and Relationship Counseling and Coaching Work
Getting to Know You
As your counselor and coach, I need to know who you are to get the best results. Therefore, the first session of personal, career and relationship counseling and coaching consists of you telling me your life story. I don't have a cookie-cutter approach. My work is specific and personal. I need to understand your history, patterns, problems, strengths and weaknesses, to successfully enable you to fulfill your dreams.
A Customized Step-by-Step Plan
Once I get the whole picture, I create a realistic step-by-step plan to accomplish what you came to counseling or coaching for. Since it needs to make sense and work for you, it's up to you to decide if it requires modification. Life is organic rather than linear, so our plan usually changes as we progress. But it does give us a starting point, specific issues to address and goals to achieve.
The first session is two hours. Subsequent sessions range in time from one to two hours, depending on what we need to do and how fast you want to do it. Sessions are scheduled weekly, but can be more frequent, or every other week, due to financial or scheduling demands. Since everyone is different, each person comes to me for a different length of time.
Because I find that live, spontaneous communication produces the best results, I don't consult by email. I do counsel and coach via the phone with clients who don't live in the Los Angeles area, or who are on location.
