I offer free consultations so let's talk asap to see if we are a good match. Please don't waste my time though if you are not going to follow through, or are not willing to do the work, or to make an investment in yourself. While I am definitely not all about money, good help doesn't come cheaply, so you need to be serious about doing this. Let's talk!! Email me and tell me a good time to call you! Let's see what we can work out. If you are serious, please contact me. Most coaching is done via phone and email and it WORKS. Get help from your own home or office without going anywhere. .


. My decades of experience working with families and individuals running a non-profit agency and my caring, creative approach have carried over to my coaching practice. I coach people with a practical heart, which means I am both tender and tough simultaneously. I care about my clients a lot and am known for this, but I expect a lot from them. To get the most out of working with a coach, you have to put in the time and effort

I help men, women, gay, straight, single, married, divorced and widowed clients. I don't care what your "label" is. If you are stuck and suffering and want a different life, want to dream again and grab onto the things you have been missing, I can help. It's time to stop hurting.

    To Whom It May Concern:

    It has been my pleasure to have known Iris Arenson-Fuller for a very long time. Iris has two outstanding personal qualities- perseverance and determination. These qualities, coupled with her life experience and professional training, are a winning combination for a life coach. She is a positive, warm, and friendly individual who has the gift of being able to inspire other people to achieve whatever goals they set for themselves. She certainly helped me to achieve my goals.

    Coach Iris demonstrates compassion and a genuine concern in her coaching style. I have not been disappointed, and have had support through coaching that has help me maintain a balance in my life while I'm transitioning to my next life phase.

  • 5/5 stars

    Iris came into my life at a very critical turn. Suffering from depression for years, I began withdrawing further and further into myself. I had been working with my doctor and taking the medication he prescribed, but it just wasnt enough. I rarely left the house except to go to work and I associated only with family and only as needed. I wanted to make changes, but I didnt know how to take that first step.
    Iris put a lot of effort into getting to know me. She is generous with her time and talents. Iris listened carefully and shared tools and ideas that were tailored to my specific needs. I knew within the first two sessions that I was on the right track and with the right life coach.
    Im not where I want to be yet, but I am definitely on the right track. Iris breathes life back into flagging hopes and dreams. I feel courageous again for the first time in a long while.

  • 5/5 stars

    Iris coached me during one of the most difficult periods of my adult life. I would cite, among her many strengths, her ability to "hear" a client. "Hearing" a client is much more than listening to words; hearing a client acknowledges a client's mood, energy, and thought processes.

    Iris has remarkable recall and there is no need to "start from the beginning" for every session. Iris prepares meticulously.

    She is able to avoid creating an unhealthy relationship of dependence. Her suggestions and assignments make a coaching session a shared venture, a balanced relationship. Iris is able to identify a client's strengths and weaknesses and use her insight to steer a client in a healthy direction.

  • 5/5 stars

    I have known Iris for many years. She is a warm, wise, caring person who is interested in helping people, and she will be a positive force in the life of anybody who engages her coaching services.

  • 5/5 stars

    Iris is an insightful and compassionate person and an excellent life coach. She has been of great help to me through some very difficult times.

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. I am continuously taking training. There are all sorts of coaching training programs out there. The main training I took for my professional certification was an exciting and rigorous program equivalent in time, commitment and work to many grad school programs.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. I am trying an experiment in early 2015. It works on the honor system. If someone can truly not afford my normal fees, they can view my price points and propose an offer based on price points. Depending on my case load, I may or may not be able to accept but ask. I do need to fill my schedule with enough clients who pay full fees to be able to reduce the fee at times for others.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. After running an adoption agency for nearly 30 yrs that had a unique, client-centered approach, someone pointed out to me that I did a lot of coaching at our agency and that was unique for the field. I decided to look into further training and became a certified professional coach, as well as continuing to take advanced training at every opportunity. I love the work and being able to help clients lead healthier, more successful lives no matter what they have gone through.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. I work a lot with the adoption community and birthparent grief, and with widows, widowers and those having a hard time with the realities of being aging Baby Boomers and thinking about the next phase, or are part of the Sandwich Generation. I help people with relationship changes or who want to make changes. Also work with young adults with loss that holds them back and gives them pain. I work with those facing or wanting to plan for a big life change and who are ready and motivated to stuff suffering and to begin the process of reinventing themselves.

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. Client confidentiality makes this difficult but you can read some testimonials here and on my websites.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. A coach must feel like a good fit for you. You do a lot of important work with your coach and trust must be built. If you don't feel compatible from the get-go this is not too likely to happen. I was trained and certified by International Coach Academy, am an ACC (Assoc. Certified Coach) through the International Coach Federation, and am a Founding Member of Impact, an International Membership Group of Coaches, Advisors and Trainers

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. Coaching is not therapy or mentoring, though at times a coach can also wear a mentor's hat. Clients have to be ready for the changes they are commiting to and for the work and new perspectives that will come their way.
