What is a Life Coach?

The past is past, and the future is yet to come. That means the future is in your hands—the future entirely depends on the present. That realization gives you a great responsibility.
- The Dalai Lama

Simply put, a coach is someone who supports and encourages you to consistently grow and improve in the area of your life that you choose. Your coach can act as a mentor, a guide, an educator, a resource, but never a critic or disciplinarian. My job as your coach is to listen to you and ask you the questions that will help you arrive at the answers you already know: to help you discover your authentic self and put that to work in all aspects of your life. I may also suggest a resource—a book, a recipe or an exercise—that will clarify or demonstrate for you.
