Frequently Asked Questions

What if I'm not LGBTQ+/polyamorous/kinky?

You don't have to be! My coaching style works for all types of humans and connections. I present these as specialties because often relationship coaches have a narrow focus on straight monogamous romantic relationships, and I would like to be a beacon for those whose orientation might not be accepted in the mainstream. 

What's the difference between coaching and therapy?

Therapy is a targeted process for diagnosing and treating mental health disorders and focuses on symptom reduction. Coaching is a goal-oriented approach that can target all aspects of life. You can have a therapist and a coach and be working on similar aspects of your life, or they can be serving wildly different purposes while both trying to move you forward towards happiness. 

What is your confidentiality policy?

My confidentiality policy is incredibly strict. I do not tell anyone the names or information of my coachees. I'm used to working under HIPAA standards and I hold myself to those.

That being said, there is one main exception worth noting. If there is risk of harm to anyone, self or others, I am legally obligated to report that. You might be familiar with the term "mandated reporting" - I am a mandated reporter, so if I have reasonable suspicion of child abuse I am legally obligated to report that as well. 

You are welcome to tell anyone you want to about our coaching - I welcome referrals from all sources!

Do you coach in-person?

If you are in Pittsburgh and wish to have the option for in-person coaching, we can absolutely discuss that. For everyone else, I do phone calls or video chat, unless the stars align and we are both attending the same conference or convention. If you want me to travel out to you, there will be travel costs involved.

What is your cancellation policy?

I require 24 hours notice for cancelling/rescheduling sessions, or else there's a $50 cancellation fee. My time and your time are valuable, and I don't want a second of it wasted.
