Jim is amazing at understanding your goals and helping you strategize around how to get there. Highly recommended!Sep 21, 2017Verified
I met with Jim for two sessions and his advice was just what I needed. Jim has an amazing gift. He was able to gather the information about my career and personal relationships and present a new approach for me to overcome obstacles. It was worth every minute and his rate is very fair. I recommend him to anyone who is faced with life's challenges and needs more than a friend's point of you or a therapist's ear. Jim helped me with an action plan that really paid off.Mar 30, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I'm not rigid by nature, so I'm always trying to come up with solutions that work for a particular client. Sometimes that's a flat hourly fee for a few sessions, sometimes it's flexible pricing for a longer-term engagement, and sometimes it's a customized deal for e.g. text check-ins or whatever else the client might require.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically I have a consultation with a new client to establish that we're on the same page about what we're trying to accomplish, and that we'd be comfortable working together. Then I work with them to understand their circumstances and motivations, and together we start clarifying goals and making specific plans.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've got a bachelor's degree from Colgate University and certification from Martha Beck Life Coach Training. I also have decades of experience helping people do things better in various walks of life. For more, see my About page on merlincoaching.com.
