Life coaching is an approach that takes a look at your thoughts because your thoughts create your circumstances. Through activities, questioning our thoughts and creating a new thought process we are able to begin moving in a new, positive direction.  We see that there is always an option-- it's looking at our circumstances in a different light that allows us to see what other options are there. 

How I help:

Narrowing in on what is bothering you--what keeps you awake at night.
Finding the thoughts that are hindering a different action or circumstance--where you feel stuck or trapped.

Taking a look at youir true self, your heart and what is important to you.
Taking the steps to start finding what it is you truly want for yourself- through fun activities and deep practices.

Helping you to start living the life you want to live--loving and taking care of yourself. This, in turn, allows you to love and take care of your family from a different perspective--with compassion, interest and excitement.

My ideal client is:

  • Tired of being tired--feeling as though your life is running you.
  • Someone who wants more out of your life- wanting joy, smiles and laughter.
  • Ready to find out what is that lights you up inside.
  • Ready to start taking care of yourself.
  • Tired of excuses--about why you put yourself and what is important to you on the backburner.
  • Passionate.
  • Fun.
  • Not offended by saucy language.
  • Looking forward to having someone (ME) there for accountability.
  • Excited about the new path you're ready to walk.

How it Works:

Over the telephone or in-person.  There is no more benefit for either, except it's nice for me to get out of the office.

When we meet (either on the phone or in-person) I'll meet you where you are at the time.  No agenda. Just asking what's happening and moving from there. Our discussions are completely private and confidential.  I do no share client names or information.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?" - Marianne Williamson

Success Stories

Marth Beck  I turned to Jess at a pivotal time in my life:  planning my 40th birthday. At first, it seemed a frivolous effort in which to enlist a coach but, having had more than my share of crappy birthdays through the years, I wasn't going to leave this one to chance. 
Jess helped me strip away the "shoulds" and external expectations of what a 40th birthday should look like and drill down to what really mattered to me. And I was thrilled with what I uncovered--I didn't want a big party or lots of people around. I'm an introvert, for heaven's sake! What I did want was to spend time with my dearest friend who lives 700 miles away. But how? And where? And when? Doing what? (Ack, the details!) And then, just like magic the vision came to me one morning, and I immediately invited my friend to fly in for a long weekend over my birthday. It could not have been more perfect. The timing and the details--every single thing--proved to me that it was exactly what was meant to be. 
It was truly magical. And Jess helped make it happen. It was there already, just waiting to be known, and Jess gave me the gentle guidance to let the plan reveal itself and take form. Happy Birthday to me!

I Decide Coaching

Marth Beck I turned to Jessica for coaching when I reached a critical turning point in my personal life:  I knew I wanted to find love and happiness, but I was allowing my work life to consume my every waking moment...and precious time to fulfill my dream of becoming a biological mom was ticking away.  Jess got me very clear on what I needed to do to get my life back in alignment with my true inner voice, the voice calling me to make my dream of a family come true. And she did it in loving, thoughtful, imaginative and effective ways.

I am now expecting my first child in May 2012 and am in a happy, healthy and balanced relationship with a wonderful man.  Without Jess's guidance, I'd likely still be eating pints of Ben and Jerry's ice cream, alone, at 2a.m. weeping about my dilemma, by the light of the open refrigerator door.

I highly recommend Jess and plan to keep her as my 'secret' weapon-- and my present to myself for future times of flux and change.
Jess truly shines.

Marth Beck Jessica is the real thing.  Her coaching style is warm, gentle, and precise and she hears my vague discomforts even when I'm not expressly articulating them. She has wisdom beyond her years and the ability to hone in on issues and gently tease them out into they open with questions and suggestions.  I know that my darkest secrets and fears are in great hands with Jess and she makes me feel safe, seen, and deeply heard as she guides me towards letting go of the old and moving in the direction I want to go.

Jessica has a unique way of keeping people focused. She turns down the volume on the scary "what if" thoughts that clatter and bang around in your head making you lose sight of your true purpose. She recognizes potential and has an uncanny sense of a person's path. She knows where you are going. Jessica uses specific, practical, tangible tools to help you reconnect with who you are destined to be.
