The Coaching Journey

What does a Life Vision and Empowerment Coach actually do?  What does that mean?

I’m here to accompany you on your journey as you travel through your transition phase from where you are now to where you want to be.  I suspect you have a pretty good idea of what you want.  And you know that life as it is now isn’t really working for you.  You’ve set out on your path but you’re feeling a little lost.  I’m here to show you the rest of the way.  I’ll come along with you to be sure you reach your destination more easily than if you had to go it alone.

Here’s a simple roadmap:


In this phase, we’ll ​clarify your dreams by answering the following questions:            

  • Who am I?
  • What do I want?​

​I'm sure you already have a pretty good idea of who you are and what you want.  How far are you going with that vision?  In this phase, we’ll stretch your vision as far as you feel comfortable taking it.  Then we’ll go a little farther to see what else might be there. 

​I offer my workbook Vision Quest, A Practical Guide to Create Your Ideal Life as a gift to you.  This is where you’ll dream big and look at the end result you would like to achieve.  It’s where you’ll start to feel into already having achieved it.  This workbook can be used as a stand alone tool or as the foundation for any of my coaching programs.  To get your copy, send me an email at with "Workbook" in the subject line.  (Yep, I do things old school.)

​Once we get those neural pathways opened up so you can visualize the ideal that you want for yourself, we’ll go to work on getting you there.


This is where the real work begins.  We’ll find the answers to these questions:

  • How can I get what I want?
  • How can I get what I want without alienating people in my life?
  • How can I get through what has been blocking my way?

Through the empowerment stage, we’ll work on getting you comfortable with increased trust in your choices, setting boundaries that honor your needs and managing the conflict that tends to arise when you start to make changes.  We'll focus on the emotions that come up for you with the work you do and what they might be trying to tell you.


​As you go through the work above, you’ll start to feel something you’re not used to feeling on a regular basis.  It’s called joy.  You’ll need to get used to that new feeling and we’ll work on getting you comfortable there as well.

Coaching Programs

If you know  you're ready to dive in, we've designed a few programs that may be of interest.  Each one focuses on a slightly different aspect of your journey depending on where you are on the road.

​Because it takes time for change to happen, each option runs for 12 weeks.  We can’t promise that your life will be perfect by the end of the program but you will be well on your way to making significant changes that will support you into your future.

Before You Commit Let’s ​Be Sure We’re A Good Fit

Not all coach/client relationships are meant to be.  Your success in your coaching program depends on you ​feeling comfortable, safe and trusting with your coach.  That’s why we always schedule a connection call before you commit to a program.

By connecting and having a relaxed conversation you’ll get a feel for how the relationship might develop.  You’ll have an opportunity to get your questions answered and you’ll know what’s expected of you as a client.  It will also give me a good idea of where you are on your journey and whether coaching is the right thing for you at this time.

Look over the program options below, compile a list of questions, then schedule your connection call today.  804-904-2292

Option 1:  Vision Quest                ​

Begin with the end in mind and work through the steps to create your ideal life.  We’ll focus on clarifying your vision and developing a roadmap to where you want to go.  Then we'll identify and dissolve ​possible obstacles that might try to get in the way.  For more detailed information click here.

Option 2:  Will The Real (your name here) Please Stand Up?

Throughout life we tend to take on different roles and sometimes we ​lose sight of who we are.  This program will walk you through the steps of identifying who you are when you’re not being someone’s wife, mother or daughter.  Then we’ll come up with a strategic plan to align your outer and inner identity.  Click here for details.

Option 3:  Life After Divorce

It may not feel like it now, but you have a world of opportunity ahead of you.  While the lawyers handle all the legal details, ​​let's ​get started on reinventing your life.  Who do you want to be?  ​We’ll focus on what worked in your marriage and what didn’t.  Then we'll develop a strategy for you to build the life you want for yourself without guilt or regret.  Program details can be found here.
