WHAT KIND OF CHALLENGES CAN COACHING OVERCOME?

While we do have a standard hourly rate, each client and coaching engagement is unique. We create tailored coaching packages based on your needs, goals, and circumstances. Package pricing is based on duration of the engagement, frequency of sessions, and any additional resources or tools required.
As independent business people we also have the freedom to offer reduced pricing for engagements that support our company mission and values, or to exchange services with other professionals.

We normally require payment in advance of sessions, but payments may be made on a monthly basis with a small administrative fee.
