Private Coaching

Individualized Approach: We'll identify your current abilities and challenges and then discover together how to move toward your goals. Your needs determine our focus during the sessions.

First Session: The first session is a little longer than a standard session. We'll talk, and I'll ask you a lot of questions about your past experience, feedback you've received, and any goals you may have. My goal will be for both of us to get a sense of whether we're a good fit for working together, and for you to have a glimpse of what our work will be. Most of all, I want you to have clarity about how I may be able to help you. The first session is billed as one hour, but it will take up to 90 minutes.

Location: Los Angeles, though because of COVID-19, I am working exclusively online.


My Rates: I charge $100-150 per hour-long session.

Partial scholarships are also available. Email me for more details. 

Duration and Frequency of Study: Most clients do either one or two sessions per week. Less than one session per week is usually not helpful. Depending on your goals, you may finish after a few sessions or continue on a regular basis.
