Life Coaching

with Johanna Pike, LPC, ATR

In addition to mental health counseling (covered by insurance), I offer phone and/or video life coaching (In person may be possible if you live local!) Note that this is NOT covered by insurance, but can be utilized even if you live out of state. Life coaching does NOT involve working with clinical issues, but does aide in self-exploration and creating achievable goals. If you are struggling with more clinical issues, you can still participate in life coaching, but it will be required that you seek professional counseling while taking part in your life coaching sessions.

This is NOT THERAPY/COUNSELING.

Ages: 14-adult to build self-confidence, explore strengths, and achieve goals.

Availability:  Saturday mornings only. Current Openings: 9-10 AM, 10-11 AM

Payment: $85 per one hour session

To Schedule:  Each session will be an hour long and once a week. It is encouraged that you sign up for an extended period of time (at least 6 sessions) in order to ensure that progress will be made! I have options for your sign-up commitment, however we will re-visit this and if you feel the need to extend your commitment we can add on to it. Feel free to send me an e-mail (JohannaPike3@gmail.com) and we can discuss time commitment and scheduling.  Payment is by card and you will not be charged until the end of each session.  Sessions are currently available on Saturday mornings only. Call or e-mail for current openings!for available appointments.


What is Life Coaching?

According to the International Coaching Federation, Life coaching is defined as "partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential, which is particularly important in today’s uncertain and complex environment. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole. Standing on this foundation, the coach's responsibility is to:

  • Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve
  • Encourage client self-discovery
  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
  • Hold the client responsible and accountable

This process helps clients dramatically improve their outlook on work and life, while improving their leadership skills and unlocking their potential."  (coachfederation.org).

For our life coaching sessions, I will work with you whether you feel the need to explore your creativity, need guidance with relationships, want to increase your confidence, are going through a difficult transition, or are looking for a new and satisfying career. Through self-reflection and a large amount of materials from the Life Purpose Institute, we will break down each goal associated with your area of concern and figure out the best way to achieve it. We've all struggled with different aspects of life and going through it a lone does not make it any easier. Investing in life coaching will provide you with the support, inspiration, and motivation that you need to successfully get through. The benefits are not only for your current situation, but lifelong. This work will help you grow internally and therefore create lasting effects for your future.

Testimonials:

 

"Johanna is a trustworthy and very insightful life coach! Her level of knowledge paired with her down to earth personality, make her extra enjoyable to speak with, and learn from. When I first started my sessions, I was going through a divorce, custody battle, and was in-between jobs. Johanna offered the positivity and guidance that I was in such need of. Her creativity and background in art therapy give her an edge that will fit even the toughest of life situations that you could experience. She provided me with activities that made me learn more about myself and even gave me a higher sense of self-worth. I can't say enough good things about this life coach, if you are looking for an amazing mentor, she is the one. Johanna truly cares about her clients and will push you to make sure you succeed in everything that you put your mind to!" -Emily Wynn

"I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to be coached by Johanna, as I found the experience to hold immense value. Insights were made into my habitual patterns, both the positive and the destructive. I find that my mental organization and clarity have been improved, and I am better able to make constructive decisions.
For me, though, the best aspect of my experience with Johanna was the security I felt during our conversations. I felt incredibly comfortable sharing anything while knowing that there would be no judgement.
 I would recommend Johanna’s life coaching services to anyone who feels the heavy burden of uncertainty of their life path. I am confident that her objective, inquisitive approach towards aiding the personal discovery can help very many people." - Adam G.
