What is Life Coaching?

I am so excited to share with you what I do, especially now that I have completed my certification and I'm officially a certified professional life coach!

Life Coaching can be described a few ways. Life Coaching helps a person:

- figure out what they're on this earth to do and then helps them do it.
- move from "stuck" thinking to "possibility" thinking.
- move on to the next chapter of their lives, despite fears and obstacles.
- make big decisions.
- make a life transition smoothly.

The list could go on and on, but hopefully you get the picture that life coaching is really for anyone. We are meant to be growing and moving forward in our lives, but so often we become stagnant because of fears or situations. A Life Coach has the tools to help you get moving in the right direction again!

A Life Coach is not a counselor. A Life Coach does not give advice. What I am here to do is help you discover your own answers, which are inside of you. I am here to be your cheerleader, encouraging you to reach your goals, holding you accountable for your actions, and equipping you to live your very best life!

When you come to to a life coaching session -- and many are done over the phone from anywhere -- you decide what will be discussed, what area of your life you choose to work on. A Life Coach keeps EVERYTHING completely confidential.

It is not an issue for a Life Coach to coach friends and family. The relationship is different in a coaching session, but it does not interfere with the relationship the exists otherwise. In fact, it can strengthen that existing relationship. I have coached my husband, and what has come out of those conversations is insight into how he thinks and why he does some of the things he does. My assumptions had been wrong and a few coaching sessions strenghtened our marriage, because I understand so much better now how he thinks.

Coaching is an amazing process that gets results.

My fees are incredibly affordable. I charge $135 per month, and that includes three sessions in that month with unlimited e-mail communication.

If you or anyone you know could use a boost in life, don't hesitate to call. My number is 406-461-2526, and my e-mail address is

Long Time No Blog

I know, I've put the blog on the back burner lately. I had no idea how muchwork it was going to be to move into a new house. I'm wondering if all the boxes will ever be emptied and their contents put in a functional, sensible place. I'm just happy that one of us can park in the garage after this weekend...and thankfully it's me!

In other Soul Arts news: I will be finishing up a course in life coaching next weekend and will have an official certificate legitimizing my life-coaching practice. I'm so excited to take this next step toward my passion of helping women to live their biggest lives! Then I'll just need some legitimate clients.

Soul Arts will also be offering a spiritual journaling retreat for women this spring, and I'll be starting a journaling group soon that will likely meet weekly. I'll keep you posted.
