I love asking questions!
I participated in a workshop many years ago that was to help us "develop our personal brand." It was aimed at "social media us," which I found completely disinteresting; I ended up uncovering my natural brand by the end of the work, though, and it opened the way for me.
That's my nature, my brand, and it's what I bring to the fore in coaching situations. I'm not asking you questions to manipulate you into a certain way of thinking; I'm asking you questions that grow from genuine curiosity. In my experience, that curiosity is contagious, and when you get curious about your own inner workings, something transformative happens.
We start there, then we find a way forward, drawing on the answers you find in response to those questions.
If you're feeling stuck or unable to figure out the best, next step on your path, let's chat.
Because I currently work as professional clergy, I do coaching all through the week as part of my vocational work.
If you're an active participant in my congregation, I'm already available to you. If you're not, we'll look at a sliding scale. This work should be accessible, and because I can, I want to offer it to you where you are.
We'll plan 3-6 sessions, and you can expect the sliding scale to range from $25-125 per session based on your capacity. Barter is also an option. So is your giving service to local organizations for coaching sessions with me.
People are often surprised when I call what I do coaching. They ask if I have a background in coaching. I do!
My approach to what you might call "pastoral care" is rooted in coaching. My training brings together mindfulness, co-active coaching techniques, and tools like Powerful Questions and Thinking Routines. My experience is the decade of professional clergy work that has allowed me to sit across the table from all sorts of folks in all sorts of situations and invite them into their own, deep wisdom.
Not only do I have a coaching background, my coaching background dwells in community and grows through relationship. I'd be honored to sit down with you to have just such a conversation as this.
