Why Coaching?


How It Works

Coaching is about creating your future. It's a proactive, structured relationship that helps you move forward by recognizing your strengths, setting realistic goals and creating new patterns of thinking, relating and working.  


Life Is Tricky

Let's be honest...we have a lot going on.  Every day, we attempt to juggle many moving pieces; career, family, friends, health, spiritual life and community involvement.  How can we manage it all and do it well?  Coaching helps us to live, love and work optimally...according to our values and priorities.


What To Expect

We'll start with a free, no obligation conversation about where you are and what you'd like to address.  Then, you'll receive a proposal based on your goals, schedule and budget.  If coaching is a good fit, you'll meet with your coach on a regular basis by phone, internet or in person. It's simple, convenient and life-changing!

Coaching Philosophy

The coach/client relationship is unique in that it is a partnership. Unlike therapy, a coach does not presume that something needs to be "fixed" in their client.  We see you as a whole person with dreams and goals. A good coach will support you in creating a vision based on your unique personality and values; she will provide resources, facilitate new approaches to problem solving and help you remove obstacles as you move toward that vision.

What's Your EQ?

Chances are, you're smart.  You may have years of training and you know your stuff; but, how are you with people?   Research confirms that Emotional Intelligence plays a key role in leading a healthy, happy and productive personal and professional life.  Rivertree is here to help!
