Frequently Asked Questions

How does coaching work?
Once you have signed up, we will communicate by email to select when your coaching sessions will be and if they will be by conference call, Zoom or Skype.
Do I have to choose all my coaching dates at once?
No. When signing up for more than one session, we can schedule sessions one-at-time, or all at once.
Do you ever schedule coaching at times other than those listed?
On occasion, yes, but I cannot guarantee availability outside those times. I will work with you as much as possible.
What if I cannot make a schedule session?
If you cannot make a session, contact us as soon as you know you can't make it. We can reschedule your session as long as we connect prior to 24 hours before your scheduled session. Sessions canceled after that time will not be rescheduled or refunded.. okay, I get there are real emergencies and I'll work with you
How long do you recommend between sessions?
At least one week, although two weeks is often better as it gives you time to incorporate what we spoke about in the previous session.

You have one year from the time you enroll in a Coaching Session plan to use all your sessions in your plan.
