Are You My Next Client?


Coaching is a personal service that works best when the coach and client are well-matched. On this page, you'll find information about the types of clients I work best with and what I bring to the picture. For additional information, follow some of the links on the left.

If you would like to take the next step and schedule a FREE INTRODUCTORY PHONE SESSION — or if you have questions about the coaching process — send me an email at sharon@goodlifecoaching.com or call 212-564-2073 to schedule an appointment.


I work with people on the following and more:

Life Coaching – all aspects of life, including career

  • You want to explore and improve many areas of your life
  • You’re doing great and want to take it to the next level and find exciting new challenges
  • You have big dreams and goals and want the support of a coach to help you achieve them
  • You have a complex or long-term project that you’d like to accomplish and need support and accountability
  • You’re a creative person — you have many areas of interest and need support on making good choices, making progress in those areas, integrating different areas of your life and staying in balance


Career Exploration – finding a new career or retirement focus, starting a business or clarifying your career path

  • You’re ready to find and pursue a new career path
  • You want to find your dream job, not just any career where you can make a lot of money
  • You want to explore a new quarter-life or mid-life career path
  • You want to explore active retirement activities
  • You want to make more conscious choices about your career path
  • You want to do work that's meaningful and makes a difference in the world
  • You've been laid off from a diminishing or unfulfilling career and want to explore other possibilities
  • You started, or want to start, a new business and need support in making the transition from salaried employee to business owner


Creativity Coaching – expressing more of your creativity and running a creative business

  • You've lost your creative spark along the way and want to rekindle it
  • You're feeling stuck or blocked with creative projects
  • You want to get your creative work out into the world
  • You want to work with someone who understands the creative mind and won't talk you out of following your creative dreams
  • You want to make money with your art (whatever form that may take)
  • You're a professional or avocational artist or performer who wants to develop your career or bring more of your creative activities into their life




I work with people who:

  • Are motivated and raring to go — you just need clarity, direction and support
  • Are willing to commit to a minimum of 3 to 6 months to really move forward with their goals and dreams
  • Love personal development and are willing to put in the time for deeper growth and change
  • May have fears about moving forward, but are willing to face their fears, with my support
  • Are focused, motivated and creative in their approach to life
  • Are willing to keep appointments, show up on time and do field work between sessions to move forward with their goals


What I bring to clients:

  • Experience and training

    I’ve been a Life, Career, Retirement and Creativity Coach since 1997. I hold the Associate Certified Coach credential from the International Coaching Federal and the Board Certified Coach credential from the Center for Credentialing and Education. I’m certified by the Life Purpose Institute and Retirement Options, and hold a certificate in Adult Career Planning & Development from New York University.  I have been training coaches for several coaching programs since 2005, so I have a deep understanding of the coaching process and what really helps clients to move ahead.

    I also have life and career experience in many areas, including the arts, business, writing and publishing, teaching and speaking, technology, spirituality and personal development.
  • Vision

    I’m great at helping you create a vision for your future, based on who you want to be and what you want to accomplish, not on your past or your history. I have a knack for seeing the best in people and what's possible for them.
  • Support and resources

    I’ve been on a personal growth path since 1983. I understand the process and have many resources to offer. I have great faith in my clients and will support and encourage you in taking positive steps that may be scary or challenging for you.
  • Compassion, understanding and acceptance

    As your coach, I am your advocate. I care about and accept you for who you really are, and I support you in becoming who you want to become, not what other people expect you to be.  I help you to make choices based on your Truer Self and to have the courage to pursue those choices.



How Coaching Is Delivered

Coaching is most powerfully delivered through regularly scheduled sessions.  Phone coaching is effective and focused, and many people appreciate the convenience of calling from their own home or office, without having to travel for their session. If you prefer having the visual, we can meet on Zoom.

We will begin with a 1½ hour Discovery Session, where we explore the areas on which you want to be coached and begin to set some goals, plans and action steps.  You will then have 2 30-minute coaching sessions each month. Longer and/or more frequent sessions are available on request.

A minimum commitment of 3 to 6 months is strongly recommended. Many clients stay with their coach for a year or more, in order to see real results and make deeper changes.


Career Transition with the Life Purpose Process©

This program includes 5 customized hours of coaching over 2 to 3 months. We will work with the Life Purpose Process to help you clarify your new career path.

We will begin with 3 one-hour sessions, usually 2 weeks apart, in which we do an in-depth Self-Exploration process to uncover the Elements of Your Ideal Career and create a list of Career Possibilities.  We will then assess where you are in the process and decide how to schedule the next 2 hours to best support you. 

Some people need additional time on Self-Exploration to further clarify their best options. If so, we may continue with one-hour sessions. Other people are ready to begin researching their best options. In that case, we may switch to half-hour phone sessions, with more field work between sessions, to support you in evaluating your research and coming up with your ideal career choice. Finally, we will create a strategy for transitioning into your new career.
