Shouldn’t I go to my rabbi, minister or priest instead of a life coach?
Absolutely, if you have a clergy person whom you want to meet with and discuss your concerns, please do so. While I have a theology degree and a lot of training as a lay person, I am not ordained clergy. Sometimes, though, people are not yet ready to talk to clergy. Sometimes they may want a voice outside of the clergy perspective. Sometimes one partner or the other isn’t comfortable with clergy in one faith. Interfaith Life Coaching can provide another option under those circumstances. There is no reason you have to do one or the other—you can meet with a life coach and a member of the clergy. This is about making choices that work for you.
What should I expect if I make an appointment?
The first appointment is complimentary since it is an opportunity for us to get to know one another and decide whether or not we think this will be a good fit. After that, we will find a mutually agreeable time to meet for one hour each week either over the phone or via Skype or FaceTime. Each session, after the initial one, will have a predetermined topic in advance so you will always know what we will be discussing and can be prepared.
How long does this take?
Because everyone is different and each situation is unique, it’s difficult to give a specific time allotment. Typically, people spend anywhere from a few weeks to several months. The decision is up to you and what you want to cover in your sessions.
How much does it cost?
The first session is complimentary. Individual sessions are $95; packages for multiple sessions are available depending upon the number of sessions requested.
Who can benefit from life coaching?
Anyone who wants to improve the balance and clarity in their life can benefit from life coaching. An individual, couple or family who desires to clarify issues that surface around faith practices are the ideal candidates for Interfaith Life Coaching. Specific categories of life coaching available through Interfaith Life Coaching are listed under 'Services'.
