Coaching has many similarities to counseling and psychotherapy. All are conversational methods for gaining new insights into ourselves and create opportunities for change. Counseling and/or psychotherapy is a health care service and is often reimbursable through health insurance policies. This is not true for coaching. Both coaching and psychotherapy utilize knowledge of human behavior, motivation, behavioral change, and interactive counseling techniques. The focus of coaching is the development and implementation of strategies that will help you reach your identified goals of enhanced performance and higher personal satisfaction. I am trained as a coach, and while we work together I will be gentle, direct, and challenging. All my work is bound by the International Coach Federation Code Of Ethics, and your privacy and confidentiality is always fully honored and respected.
It is important that we have a good connection and there are coachable challenges to work on together. We can do coaching in person, by phone, or video chat.
Contact me for a free 20 minute consultation and interview. In most situations we will know within 15-20 minutes if we have the right relationship for coaching. Of course if it doesn’t feel like a good match we’ll stop at 20 minutes or so (and I may refer you to another coach in my network depending on your goals, especially if you ask for a recommendation).
In Seattle, I meet coaching clients at my downtown location in Columbia Tower or my meeting space on Capitol Hill. Prefer virtual meetings? I welcome sessions via telephone, Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts, FaceTime, or any other video conferencing system.
Sessions are between 45-55 minutes each (though sometimes they can be a little longer, depending on the situation). You pick a schedule that works for you – weekly or bi-weekly works best. In between sessions I am 100% available for quick, on topic coaching (what some of us call “laser coaching”) by voice, email or text.
Appointments available 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday – Saturday
Our first discussion is a 20 minute complementary conversation about you and what you’d like to achieve through coaching (and for both of us to get to know each other).

“I started working with Tim when I was anticipating a return to the workforce after eight years at home with my children. Tim has the warmth and humor of a friend, and the skills, focus and discipline of a true professional, making him both easy to talk to and remarkably effective. He is particularly skilled at noticing habitual language, body cues, and life patterns which can hold you back, and helps you to find different ways of thinking and acting which are loving and empowering.
Tim is also masterful at drawing out what you really want, and helped me reconnect with a career vision and next steps for work that were meaningful and exciting. I leave sessions feeling energized, clear, relaxed, an ready to go. Thanks to Tim, when the right job came up this summer, I felt confident enough to land it. Sign up with this guy!” – Laura Feola – International Grant Manager
