What is personal development coaching?
Personal Development Coaching (aka Life Coaching) is a process that is thought-provoking, creative, and action-oriented. Our coaching programs help you increase self-awareness and inspire you to maximize your potential and reach your goals. Our work with you begins with an assessment to understand your needs and goals, and from there we tailor the program to you. Our coaching programs are evidence-based, trauma-informed, and include cultural awareness and sensitivity, and social responsibility.
Coaching helps you get from where you are to where you want to be. We'll help you achieve goals that matter to you in a way that promotes learning and growth. Goals can be internal, like building confidence or social skills, or external, like making college and career decisions. We'll support you through identifying your interests, values, meaning, purpose, and passions, then setting and pursuing compatible goals. We'll help you identify what you want, why you want it, and how to begin working toward the outcomes you seek.
Our coaching will enhance your goal setting, goal striving, and goal attainment, as well as improve your self-awareness, self-regulation, mental health, resilience, well-being, and feelings of hopefulness.
