In my experience, coaching tends to work best for clients who are motivated and ready for change. They feel generally positive about themselves and their lives, and want to build on what is going well to optimize their sense of personal and professional well-being and satisfaction, and to work toward new goals. They are looking for support in making the most of their present lives, and moving forward; they are not specifically looking for help in healing from or getting over the past. Currently, they may feel stuck or at a loss, and describe a sense of emotional pain or psychological distress as a result, but they are not excessively limited in their ability to move forward by feeling especially broken or sick, or being too hesitant to take action-steps in whatever direction they deem desirable. If, in the course of work with a coaching client, I believe that counseling would be helpful or more appropriate, I will refer that client to counseling. I often offer individual coaching to people who have been in counseling previously (though not necessarily with me, of course). These clients want to maintain the gains that they made in therapy, and are looking to take their successes to the next level. I do coaching over the telephone or Skype, or in-person in my office; sessions are 45-minutes in length, and scheduled on a weekly basis, whenever possible.

I am a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) and an Energy Leadership Index™ Master Practitioner (ELI-MP) through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC).
I offer a 30-minute consultation free-of-charge to give clients the chance to get to know me better, for me to learn more about them, and to help both of us decide how (or if) we want to proceed together.
Typically, I charge $360 for four weekly 45-minute sessions per month. I am able to offer reduced fees, so please ask me for more information during your “Meet and Greet” if you want to work with me and require financial consideration.
Payment is expected in advance each month, or in installments and on dates agreed upon by both client and coach. Payments for partial months will be prorated. Payments are to be made to Thought Tonic, LLC, either by check sent to 819 E 64th St, Indianapolis, IN 46220, or by credit card (with the addition of $3.50 per transaction for processing fees).
Once sessions are scheduled, I request a minimum of 24-hours notice if you must cancel, and to reschedule; fees for appointments missed without this notice are forfeited by the client.
For local clients, I have small (3-4 members per group, plus a coach-facilitator), 6-week, in-person coaching groups designed as a supportive resource for adults who identify themselves as introverts and want to identify, claim, and learn to live more fully from their strengths as introverts. Let me know if you would like to learn more.
