What is a Life Coach?2017-04-28T14:31:28+00:00

A Life Coach is a partner that will challenge and help you focus to get you to where you want to go.

How do I know you are the right person for me?2017-06-15T20:25:15+00:00

You don’t know; that is why I offer a complimentary session.  You will be sure after that.

How long will it take to meet my goals?2017-04-28T14:30:48+00:00

That is up to you; however, a three-month minimum commitment is required in order to see change.  After the three months you can renegotiate your commitment.

Do I have to see you in person?2017-04-28T14:30:26+00:00

Not necessarily.  Sessions can also be made by phone and can be just as effective, and convenient!

How long is each session?2017-04-28T14:29:48+00:00

One-half hour or one full hour depending on needs.

“Working with Jean Marie as a coach has enabled me to realize how strong and capable a woman I am physically, emotionally and spiritually. Coaching, coupled with her retreats, has brought out strength and resilience which benefited me in many ways. Her coaching and retreats have given me the opportunity to develop deeper and more fulfilling relationships while developing a sense of peace within my heart. I’m very grateful!”

Spiritual Direction:  Where Humanness Meets Holiness

Spiritual direction is about experiencing and exploring the deepest aspect of being human while journeying with God (or what or whomever you believe) and a spiritual companion. This aspect of my work came from journeying with victims of domestic violence. I continually heard individuals speak of a confused view of what “God” expected. With that and meeting more and more folks disillusioned by organized religion, I became a Spiritual Director trained by Quellen Spiritual Center.  I can help you to understand your true self as an expression of the divine as we move toward releasing obstacles that limit our experience of knowing ourselves more consciously.

    What is Spiritual Direction?2017-04-28T15:43:13+00:00

    Spiritual Direction is a joint venture between you, me and God.  In the partnership, you  talk, I listen, God is at hand.  Together we see where God is present in your life and how you can become more present to God.

    What if I don’t believe in a god?2017-06-15T20:27:06+00:00

    The name “God” was created to understand.  It is a name to communicate and relate to something larger than ourselves.  That largeness includes energy or whatever your understanding of “God” is, if you label it at all.

    What is the process like?2017-04-28T15:42:44+00:00

    That is up to you.  Most Directees meet once a month.

    But nothing is “wrong” in my life, and I don’t need Spiritual Direction.2017-04-28T15:42:24+00:00

    Spiritual Direction is a choice and one does not need anything to be wrong.  All one needs is a desire to draw closer to God.
