ARE YOU READY TO LEARN WHAT MATTERS?
Who am I? What kind of person do I want to become? What goals do I want to accomplish in my life? What do I need to do in order to accomplish them? Is what I learn in high school going to matter after I graduate? What skills do I need to become successful?
Who can I trust to help me figure all of this stuff out?
I spent a lot of time asking myself these questions in high school. Maybe you have, too?
I designed a life coaching program because I wanted to make sure high school students who also ask themselves these questions could figure out the answers, and even more quickly than I did.
I never had a life coach in high school. I didn’t even know what a life coach was.
It wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I understood why people hire life coaches. Once I invested in a life coach of my own this past year, I realized how beneficial they could be.
I’ve become more self-aware, gained knowledge and access to new resources, and accomplished more goals in the last two months than I did in all of 2017. (Shoutout to my coach, Bryan!)
SO...WHAT'S A LIFE COACH?
Life coaches provide a listening ear; they partner with you to design a customized action plan to help you achieve your personal and professional goals. Every coach is unique, so it’s important that you find one with an approach that best fits your specific needs.
Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Demi Lovato, Serena Williams, and Leonardo DiCaprio are some of the many successful individuals that have benefited from having a life coach.
COACHING IS DIFFERENT FROM:
Therapy: Coaches, including myself, aren’t trained psychologists, psychiatrists, or therapists. Life coaches don't work with you to unpack or resolve past trauma or any mental health issues. But life coaches can guide you to the right resources if you need that kind of support. Life coaches focus primarily on the present and what will make your future better.
Tutoring: Life coaches can help you do better in school, but they don't teach you specific academic material or tutor you for your future exams. My coaching sessions especially will never go over homework assignments or content for school projects. Instead, they'll empower you to develop better study and pre-exam habits for better academic performance.
Gaining a Best Friend: While your relationship with your coach can eventually turn into a friendship, it's not intended for your coach to become your best friend. A life coach is meant to be an objective individual who's there to support you with the purpose of seeing you achieve your goals. Life coaches shouldn’t be viewed as someone to tell all of your secrets to or be there during every personal celebration.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE GREATEST BENEFITS OF HAVING A LIFE COACH?
- You’ll learn how to set clear goals and create a personalized action plan.
- You’ll receive tailored resources and feedback.
- You’ll get your own Chief Accountability Officer!
- Your access to resources and connections will increase.
- You’ll be provided with structured, consistent support to keep you on track.
MY COACHING APPROACH
Just like my speaking style, my coaching style is raw, authentic, and empowering. We may, at times, discuss serious topics, but I strive to keep my sessions positive, fun, and engaging.
When I first meet with clients, I'll primarily listen to them to understand their perspective and needs. We'll then work through self-awareness, personal development, and goal-setting exercises to develop the best customized action plan. Throughout the rest of the coaching sessions, discussion topics and exercises will be determined on the client’s experiences and preferences.
And I promise to create a comfortable atmosphere as a coach. That's very important to me. I want to make sure each client feels at ease to be their authentic self in every session.
What are some topics I like to discuss during coaching sessions?
- Self-care practices
- Overcoming unexpected obstacles
- Personal branding
- Learning and motivation styles
- Leadership skills
- Effective communication (verbal, oral, cross-generational, etc.)
- Emotional intelligence
- Having healthy relationships (family, friends, romantic)
- Time and stress management
- Focus and discipline
- Health and fitness
MY COACHING PACKAGE
Available in-person in the San Francisco Bay area, or by video call.
Each client gets a customized coaching package that I design just for them after an initial 60-minute, free of charge consultation. All of my coaching packages include:
- Two 60-minute coaching sessions per month (determined by the location of the client)
- Occasional short reading assignments or self-awareness exercises to complete between calls
- Unlimited resume, LinkedIn, and social media reviews (if desired)
- Unlimited email, text, and social media support between calls
- A pre-coaching and post-coaching survey
(Based on a four-month minimum commitment)
APPLYING FOR MY COACHING PACKAGE
Step 1: Submit this application. You can apply for yourself or on behalf of someone else as a parent or legal guardian.
Step 2: I will reach out to you to schedule the initial consultation. During our call, the first 50 minutes will be focused on discussing my background and coaching style, learning more about the student/legal guardian’s expectations/needs better, and the desired frequency/method of coaching. If there’s time, we’ll try 1–2 short coaching exercises. As the session comes to an end, the legal guardian and I can discuss pricing, payment method, and payment schedules.
Step 3: After our call, if we both see each other as a good fit, and if both sides agree to begin coaching sessions, yay! We can finalize all further coaching and payment details over email or phone.
Step 4: We'll work to schedule the first call. I'll send the pre-coaching survey, which should be completed at least 24 hours before our first call.
Step 5: Our first call together! Woo!
