What is Life Coaching?

Not sure where to start? Need someone to help?

A Life Coach will walk with you as your advocate, encourager, and helper as you set goals to get you from where you are to where you want to be. A Coach helps bring organization and focus as you navigate life transitions with intention and purpose to create your step-by-step action plans.  Counseling deals more with problems and personal issues. Coaching deals more with charting your course and overcoming obstacles.
