What makes coaching so effective?
It’s an enjoyable way to work on goals and desires that have been elusive for too long. Most important, it’s absolutely about you.
You determine assignments based on your specific goals and mission to be completed during the week. Because you are accountable for completing the assignments, you remain in empowering, forward-moving energy. Blocks to completing the assignments occur, but we work together to determine what sets the block–and then how to move it, crush it, or simply walk around it.
Once you start the coaching process, you’ll wonder how you lived without a coach.
Why does coaching work?
With Denise as your coach, you tackle a tough situation, press through a problem, or make a decision about a dilemma. Or, you just learn coping skills to help on those difficult days. The client (you) drives the coaching call; you determine the focus and the goals. Then, you and Denise create an action plan—steps you will take between coaching calls—that will lead to your desired outcomes. With a coach, you get an objective listener, a committed partner in your success, and an advocate for your needs.
“Before coaching with Denise, I was overwhelmed with my responsibilities. Denise is consistently encouraging and positive, helping me break any goal into pieces and achieve it one step at a time, while providing resources and expertise to help me on my way. I would encourage any caregiver with too much on her plate to work with Denise – as soon as possible!”
“I am so glad I did this! Denise listened and asked just the right questions to send me in the right direction. She helped me develop an action plan that left me feeling empowered and in control. I recommend this for any one in a caregiving situation!”
“Denise was interested, compassionate, and understanding. She helped me verbalizemy concerns and suggested ways I can address these.”
How does coaching work?
Denise works with clients through weekly 30-minute phone calls. With older adults, Denise makes home visits for 50-minute sessions; for this reason, Denise coaches older adults in the Chicago area only.
Through goal setting and solution focusing, clients find their path to living their fullest life. Typically, clients work with coaches for three-month periods.
Denise is a professionally trained coach credentialed by the International Coach Federation. She has more than twenty years of experience working with family caregivers and older adults.

Coaching makes a great gift! If you are worried about a family member (your sister, your mom, your dad) who is the primary family caregiver, consider purchasing a three-month coaching package on behalf of the family caregiver. And, coaching makes a great gift for the older adult in you life. It’s a wonderful way to show your support! To inquire about giving coaching as a gift, send Denise an email.
