Coaching begins with a free one hour discovery call to help me get to know you and your goals for coaching. We will talk through where you are in your journey and where you want to go. It is the beginning of our partnership in finding your path to greater life fulfillment. I will answer your questions about the process and if you decide to move forward, we will plan a meeting schedule and discuss a coaching contract.

Coaching Agreement

My standard format is to schedule 2 one hour coaching sessions per month with access by phone or email between sessions. Appointments are by phone or Skype. For clients who are local, you can choose to meet at my office.

You will receive a Welcome Packet to fill out and return as well as a prep form to be completed and sent to me before each appointment.

I will commit to encouraging you, holding you accountable and walking beside you in your journey.

Coaching Process

Throughout the coaching process we will discuss your desired changes/growth areas and develop an action plan to help you achieve your life goals. I will listen carefully and serve as a catalyst to change. I will also hold you accountable for your action plan. At times I may ask you to complete assessments to provide us greater insight into your strengths and personality. At the end of our time working together, we will review your life mission, strategies for keeping your life fulfilled and rejoice in your path.

What Coaching Is Not

Coaching is not counseling, mentoring, discipleship or consulting.
Coaching is the practice of guiding and enabling individuals or groups to find their vision, set goals and develop strategies to meet their vision and live a life of purpose.


Life Journeys Counseling

“My husband and I were at a crossroads staring at a major life decision. JoAnn helped us to see our defining values as they emerged from recent experiences and use those values to make a decision. What I appreciated most, was that the decision was always ours. She was there to patiently listen and give structure to the conversation as well as affirm us while we were processing our experiences.” – Missionary couple in a closed country
