There are many, many tools available for personal and professional growth. Individual coaching is one of the most powerful of these tools because it is entirely personalized to meet your needs, move at your pace, and serve your goals.
Coaching is—quite simply—a beautiful gift to give yourself.
As a coach, I specialize in work with professional women who desire to
- Increase their impact and step more fully into leadership or
- Do work that is personally fulfilling and engages their passion
- Live a more authentic, satisfying life
One on one coaching with me is good fit for you if you would like to:
- Find personal or professional direction—from the inside out
- Discover a more authentic life path
- Find more fulfilling work, or make your current work more fulfilling
- Clarify what you want for the next phase of your life, and actualize your vision in a realistic, naturally motivating and enjoyable way
- Learn how to access your own inner wisdom—whenever you need it
- Reduce the impact of fears, self-doubt and unhelpful mental chatter in your life
- Experience more confidence, calm and everyday joy
The Nuts & Bolts
Coaching begins with three foundation sessions that take place during the first month of working together. Clients then continue with 2-4 sessions per month, depending on their needs and preferences.
Sessions take place primarily by phone, with some in-person meetings for local (San Francisco Bay Area) clients who have an interest in meeting in person. Many non-local clients work exclusively by phone.
- 40-minute coaching sessions
- Tara’s materials, including readings on concepts relevant to the coaching work and writing exercises
- Action steps to take each week between sessions, based on the learnings and discoveries from the previous session
- Email support as needed between sessions
Most clients and I find our work naturally concludes after 3-9 months of coaching, when they are on a clear, high-momentum path to achieving their goals, or have successfully navigated the transition they sought coaching around. Some clients choose to continue having ongoing coaching as a source for support for the next phase of their lives, and we work together over a longer-term.
