What is a Professional Life Coach?
A Professional Life Coach is a trusted mentor who can help you identify and uncover what keeps you from reaching your fullest potential. It is a one-on-one relationship that provides a supportive and non-judgmental space to help you create what you want for yourself. You can find a Life Coach to help you strategize and acquire the tools you need to achieve your goals. It consists of steps to help you identify and reframe your thoughts and attitudes. It can also help you break negative habits, acquire new methods of identification, and take action to achieve your maximum potential!
What types of people have Life Coaches?
People from all walks of life work with professional Coaches to help attain their goals. Life Coaches work with people in all areas of their life including relationships, career, finance, health and more. Working with a personal Coach is not limited to any type of person, but is best for those who want to take initiative in their own life. People who get a Life Coach are committed to a more fulfilled life and are willing to do the work needed to get there.
How will Life Coaching help?
The results will vary depending on what brings you to a Life Coach. If you get a Life Coach to help you out professionally, life coaching can help you make your current job more gratifying, gain better focus on managing your work, and market your self more effectively. If your reasons are personal, you can find a life coach to help you improve your relationships, resolve ongoing negative behaviors, improve your overall health, and grow spiritually. With Life Coaching, you uncover your joy and peace as you create your dreams and connect with your purpose!
What happens in a Life Coaching Session?
Each session is tailored to the client and will vary based on individual needs. In the beginning, we will discuss what you are committed to accomplishing through our work together and we will begin to create a plan to achieve your goals. Each session, you create practices and actions that will move you toward your goal or helps shift an obstacle that's blocking your progress. We will work together to acknowledge obstacles, explore alternate perspectives and celebrate successes. At the conclusion of each session, we check in on what was achieved, whether you are satisfied with the speed of your progress and acknowledge you for the ground you have taken.
Do I really need a personal Coach, can't I just do it by myself?
Life coaching can take you above and beyond your own personal limitations. More often than not, people try to achieve their greatest potential, but don’t even realize what stands in their way. A personal Coach can offer an unbiased and objective perspective, and can help you realize your patterns and habits. Most people experience that they are more efficient when working with a Professional Life Coach and that this provides the opportunity for them to better realize their potential. Life coaching can make your dreams attainable and will give you support and encouragement along the way.
How is Coaching different from Therapy?
While the life coaching I provide can be therapeutic, it is not therapy. Coaching is distinct from traditional therapy because it is not designed to address psychological issues. While emotional issues may arise, the primary focus of life coaching is to help you identify your goals, achieve them, and develop constructive habits and skills. There is little emphasis placed on the past with coaching, but instead the focus is on creating what you want now and in the future.
Is personal life coaching confidential?
What we discuss will be held in confidence and not shared with others. However, our discussions are not privileged for legal purposes. The privilege of confidentiality that exists for the clergy, therapists and attorneys is not granted to coaching professionals. That said, life coaching is a confidential process, and your personal information will always be protected. As a credentialed ICF (International Coach Federation) coach and member, I adhere to a strict code of ethics that includes confidentiality.

FROM MY CLIENTS
“(Linda) helped me to figure out that I didn't have to "drive and strive.” I can't say I got out of the coaching relationship what I expected to, I got so much more than I ever expected. I didn't know how impactful, coaching would be and how life changing it would be. And I don't use that lightly saying life changing. I honestly do think my life is different now. My family says that as well while I was working with (Linda) I got so much feedback from my wife saying, “You are back, your joy for life is back.” So ‘life-changing’ is not too big a word to use for what I got from coaching… “

Behind The Scenes
Normal Lies Podcast, Episode 7
"If you are willing to do the work to help yourself thrive and not just survive then this program is for you. It allowed me to be accountable for following through with my investment in myself and I learned about the importance of taking care of my well-being.
Linda is caring and knowledgeable in bringing out the best in people to be a better version of themselves.
Now, instead of drifting without direction, I’m empowered to achieve my best life."
"Before I started coaching with Linda, I felt stuck, and I was not enjoying my work. I was very close to quitting my Ph.D.
After coaching, I feel that I understand better who I am and where my strength lies, which helps me to understand how to better draw enjoyment from my work. Also, having a coach helped me to "get into action" (as Linda would always emphasize) and push me towards becoming a better version of myself.
Coaching with Linda went beyond my expectations. It's hard to describe what exactly it is that it pulled me out from my slump; it's likely a combination of understanding myself better and having the support from Linda to overcome life's resistance.
Since coaching, I am better able to vocalize and distinguish the type of work that would make me happy and fulfilled, which I think in turn is helping to tune me towards these types of opportunities. I am writing this testimonial 9 months after my last coaching session with Linda, and I still feel the lasting benefits from the coaching. I feel that I am equipped with better tools to rise up to life's challenges.
If you are considering working with Linda, I say, “Go for it!” It will be worth it."
D.X., Rochester, NY
"Linda challenges me without being abrasive. She made me look within myself where I have not gone before. I used to think that I wouldn’t change and that I didn’t have much to offer. I was living life just going through the motions.
Now I know that I have much to offer to my friends, family and people I have yet to meet. I have learned to accept myself and understand that change takes time and practice.
It is hard work and challenging but it is eye opening and well worth the time and money. You will not regret the time spent."
DLH, Penfield, NY
"There are “no hard edges” to Linda’s coaching style. Accepting and kind, she inspires me to round off the hard edges in my life and personality. Linda is not speaking from a high and mighty platform. Her many gifts include the way she uses her personal experiences of “before” and “after” in her own growth and expansion. That way, we identify with her past struggles and challenges. She shows us a softer way.
If you want to get the most out of coaching, bring your honesty. Be clear about what painful areas you have and that you want to change.
This coaching was priceless—life-changing! I got much more than I ever dreamed!"
Tricia W., Rochester, NY
"I didn’t know what it would be like before coaching with Linda, I had no idea what to expect. I thought it would be a list of things I would have to do that would make me feel really uncomfortable.
But it’s actually more organic and tailored to you. It’s a lot of introspection, looking within, bringing out the good and understanding why you’re getting stuck. If you’re thinking of working with Linda, it is definitely worth the investment. Money can’t buy happiness—but, it can!"
Amanda J., Buffalo, NY
"Linda is tough (in a good way). She is great at making you look at difficult things and helps to get you results. Linda is kind, thoughtful, insightful and encouraging. Her strategies and ideas are life changing.
It’s not easy work and it takes time and effort, but it is a life changing process. The results are amazing and life-changing so if you’re considering signing up, DO IT!"
Lauren G., Rochester, NY
"Linda brings such a wonderful combination of loving inspiration and no-nonsense accountability to coaching. She has not only consistently worked with me to be MY best in every area that I am working on in my life, but beyond that has inspired me and coached me to step outside of my comfort zone, color outside the lines and break through self-imposed barriers and limitations.
She creates a space in which I feel safe to frequently call myself out on my own ‘shenanigans’ which can so often impede progress. If you are looking for someone who will partner with you in reaching your goals, creating new ones and providing structure and velocity to the process, if you are thinking of signing up, you are on the right track if you’re wanting growth and change. It’s a wise decision to make if you’re willing to commit to do the work. Then, if you continue to practice what you’ve learned, you will live a more fulfilling life!
