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? What skills do I need to become successful? Is what I'm learning in high school going to matter after I graduate?
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, received access to new resources, and accomplished more goals in the last few 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.
COACHING IS DIFFERENT FROM:
Therapy: Just because somebody is a life coach doesn't mean they're a trained psychologist, psychiatrist, or therapist. Life coaches don't work with you to unpack or resolve past trauma or any mental health issues. Life coaches can guide you to the right resources if you need that kind of support, though. 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 won't teach you academic material or tutor you for your future exams. My coaching sessions will not go over homework assignments or content for school projects. Instead, they'll empower you to develop 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, a coach's intention isn't to be your best friend, listen to all of your secrets, or be there for you during every personal celebration. But a life coach will support your personal development and help you crush your goals!
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 mostly 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. The rest of the coaching sessions, discussion topics, and exercises will be determined on the client’s experiences and preferences.
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 we might 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. If you are under 18 and apply by yourself, you're confirming that you've gotten permission from your parent or legal guardian.
Step 2: I will reach out to you to schedule the initial consultation. The first 50 minutes of our call will focus 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!
