What does the 10-week program offer?
You will receive one dedicated 1-hr. session per week for 10 consecutive weeks. Each week, a new distinction will be covered to propel you toward your own goals and transformation.
What does a single session offer?

In addition to the 1-hr. session, you will have action steps to complete each week. The action steps that support you in achieving your goals arise during the sessions themselves. The amount of time required to complete them varies accordingly.
Where does the coaching take place?
From the comfort of your own home!! The sessions are designed to be done over the phone or via conference call. Typically, the sessions are done via phone, Skype, or Zoom. Speak with your coach and work out what works best for you!
