Quality, experience, commitment and client trust.

Life Coaching

Life coaching has roots in executive coaching, which itself drew on techniques developed in management consulting and leadership training.

Life coaching also draws inspiration from disciplines including sociology, psychology, positive adult development, career counseling, mentoring, and other types of counseling.

The coach may apply mentoring, values assessment, behavior modification, behavior modeling, goal-setting, and other techniques in helping their clients.


Recovery Coaching

Recovery coaching is a form of strengths-based support for persons with addictions or in recovery from alcohol, other drugs, codependency, or other addictive behaviors. Recovery coaches work with persons with active addictions as well as persons already in recovery.

Recovery coaches are helpful for making decisions about what to do with your life and the part your addiction or recovery plays. Recovery coaches help clients find ways to stop addiction (abstinence), or reduce harm associated with addictive behaviors.

Recovery coaches can help a client find resources for harm reduction, detox, treatment, family support and education, local or online support groups; or help a client create a change plan to recover on their own.

Executive Coaching


Executive coaching is motivation training that is aimed at helping corporate executives enhance their effectiveness in the workplace. The process of coaching executives usually involves elements of continuing education, exposure to many different ideas and philosophies regarding the proper management of a business, and concepts on how to retain enthusiasm for the work at hand and thus enjoy a high level of personal satisfaction with the chosen career. People with strong teaching and motivational skills often do very well with an executive coaching career.
