Who do you work with:
My professional coaching field is focused on women for spiritual growth, stress management, decision making, and dealing with past hurts & bitterness.
As a mother of 4 children, I understand finding a quiet space can be difficult. Let me know if you need an earlier or late starting time to deal with school and bedtimes concerns.
What is your approach to intimacy and other "sensitive" topics?
Hebrews 4:13 states, "Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled." This is one of my core verses, and I strive to be open and honest regarding the beauty and joy around intimacy.
Forthright questions, real medical terminology, (nothing crass or foul) will be used.
Gen 1:31 states "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good". He didn't say it was mostly good, but VERY GOOD. And so is my approach to the human body. It is a beautiful thing and not to be avoided or dealt shamefully with.
I do not encourage any pornography or erotic-style literature
What makes your approach unique?
I bring a wide diversity of medical knowledge, marriage, work experience, and child-rearing to each life coaching session
I believe that each person is responsible for change. You have to want it. You have to be ready for it. You have to fight for it.
I like to deal with individuals first (before working with couples together) helping them overcome the hurdles that they are facing.
For example: If you feel angry all the time, I help you search out the root cause of that anger. Find healing, seeking forgiveness, and closure in your life
Then, I encourage you can go back and talk to your spouse and/or family and seek restitution.
I offer individual accountability through varying texting options (with responses back!) to keep you accountable through possible relapses back into old habits of anger
Coaching helps you look to the future as Phil 3:13-14 states Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. And I help you press toward the mark (not giving up, encouragement to keep going) for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
What happens in a typical 1-hour session?
Each session incorporates what has happened and what you would like to happen.
Dealing with questions that may have come up since we previously talked
Review of homework (no, not a grading! This isn't high-school) but simply a review of what was learned and how you can continue to use that in the future
Focused questions. What do you want to talk about today? The meeting is not all about what I want, but it is focused on you.
Reachable goals set for the next session
Calming quiet time and/or Coach-led prayer time. Remembering that all our strength to change, to become more Christ-like has to come from Jesus Christ alone
