Coaching with me is all about what's best for you. Having lived, dated, and loved in New York City for more than 30 years, and having successfully coached hundreds of others since 2007, I've gotten very good at spotting red flags and deciphering human behavior. Everyone has issues, it's a matter of managing your own and picking a person who's issues don't clash with yours.
Too many people stay in the wrong relationship because they think it's the best they'll get. Or because they're afraid to be alone or admit they're not happy. If that's what's going on with you I'll listen closely and together we'll figure out what's best for you!
As your coach I will help you decide EXACTLY what you want and need in a relationship. Is your current partner good for you? Do you feel loved? I'll help you decide whether or not it's the right one for you. I can help you make it the best it can possibly be, or help you get out and find someone better.
