What Is Coaching?
Most of us embark upon the adventure of relationship with a greater measure of hope and good intention than either skill or knowledge in the creative laws of relationship. On the path of relationship there are predictable challenges and unseen opportunities within the relationship itself that most people are unprepared to meet.
How many creative endeavors have bit the dust because people get locked into power struggles and disagreements and can’t get beyond them – or – loving marriages that descend into bitter courtroom battles – or – business meetings bogged down by petty grievances or emotional undercurrents – or – community meetings that are more about casting blame than solving problems?
Coaching is the process of you being supported in creating what you want in your life. When you are confused, frustrated, making excuses or just plain fed up, having an experienced personal coach makes all the difference in turning the situation around. Having a coach is having someone who supports you in claiming what you want and going for it!
How much faster and easier would you create what you want if you had someone to bounce ideas off of, someone to assist you in focusing and prioritizing your activities and someone to be accountable to for producing the results you say you want? Someone who is compassionate, insightful and can practice "tough love" when necessary?
How important is it to have someone in your life who has over 35 years of professional experience coaching thousands of people through the most challenging relationship issues imaginable to achieve their dreams and is committed to you achieving your dreams?

Why Would I Want A Relationship Coach?
- You value relationships highly and believe you deserve fulfillment. Having fulfilling personal and professional relationships is a priority for you. You realize your quality of life is connected to the quality of your relationships. You don't want to settle for less or risk preventable failure, and you're willing to give yourself the gift of the support needed to be successful.
- You want real results. You’re serious and intentional about having a fulfilling life partnership, family, business, and community. Working with a coach can move you farther and faster than you can on your own.
- You're willing to learn and ready for action. You realize you don’t know what you don’t know, and your future success may depend upon access to new relationships skills and knowledge. Using a coach can be the most effective means of translating knowledge into practice. One of the most indispensable roles of a coach is to help you use what you already know to make effective choices and take the actions necessary to be successful.
- You're open to mentoring/support. A relationship coach helps you use your relationships to evolve and develop relationship skills critical to your business success and personal fulfillment. The process of self-discovery, learning about relationships, and how to make successful relationship choices can’t be effectively self-taught or obtained from a book or audio program.
- You want to be true to yourself. A relationship coach helps keep you honest with yourself, helps neutralize any tendency you may have to settle for less than you really want, and is good for providing “reality checks” and being a sounding board.
- You want to be proactive and you want to take responsibility. A relationship coach helps you solve problems while they’re still small and take responsibility for the quality of your relationships so that you can create them the way you want now and in the future.
- You want to go beyond your perceived limits. A relationship coach holds your highest vision for you beyond your fears and limitations, and helps you learn from upsets so that you can have fewer of them.
- You want to live authentically. Today’s world is filled with challenges to finding and staying on your highest path, telling your truth, and making choices that are best for you. A relationship coach helps you identify and live the life you really want and to be more of the person you really are and want to be.
- You want balance in your life. Your life is filled with opportunities and conflicting choices. You recognize the importance of creating and maintaining balance in relationships, including the ones you have with yourself and your higher power.
- You want new possibilities in your relationship. You recognize that a healthy relationship is growing and dynamic. One of the worst things that can happen is to take one another or the relationship for granted. Opening to new possibilities keeps a good relationship getting better with the passage of time. A relationship coach helps you to continually discover and implement new and more fulfilling possibilities for your life and relationships.
