Why Coaching?

Answers from real clients…

What were you feeling when you reached out to me initially?

  • Overwhelmed and stressed
  • I was aware of what I was bad at, but I needed to have a more efficient system put in place
  • I wanted to clean up the mess I was in
  • I was thinking about too much at once
  • It was very hard for me to remember everything that I had to do in a given day and so I was procrastinating with my work and getting behind

What did we do together that has continued to be helpful in your life?

  • Laying out what I had to do each day, each week, and each month to stay on track
  • Learning how to identify my priorities and then set weekly goals
  • Creating a schedule that includes the work I need to do, but also time for everything else (i.e. working out, hanging with friends)
  • Breaking down bigger projects and allocating time for each part so I wouldn’t get overwhelmed or procrastinate
  • Figuring out how and when (and who) to ask for help
  • Knowing that writing a plan makes me feel less anxious
  • Learning strategies to keep me focused and motivated
  • Learning the brain science behind motivation, procrastination and habit formation

How would you describe the client I’m looking for? How would they be feeling?

  • I feel like there has to be a level of self-awareness or acceptance by the person – they have to want to change
  • They would be feeling stuck, or like they were failing to make progress on their goals

What to expect from coaching?

  • You will feel more in control – like you have a handle on everything you need to do, and a plan for how to do it.
  • Your weekly sessions with Kailea will give you more confidence and you’ll feel more motivated to do the stuff you need to do.
  • Honestly, your life will change. You’ll keep using the skills even after you are done with coaching.


You will:

Get organized as we develop effective systems that work for you

Feel motivated to do the things that need to get done

Learn the brain science behind habit formation and use it to your advantage

Form useful habits that will help you achieve your lifelong goals


Self-regulation skills, such as time management, planning and organization,
are strongly linked to one’s performance and overall well-being.

Why one-on-one coaching?

  • There’s a reason why we pay for private music lessons. When learning complex skills, 1:1 instruction is most effective. It allows for immediate and individualized feedback, and further, it promotes the development of a relationship. Research shows that having a strong relationship with someone you are accountable to, who will encourage you when you are feeling defeated, is a key factor in the acquisition of complex new skills.

Why Will We Work Together for Several Months?

  • We need multiple opportunities to practice new skills in order to internalize them. Many researchers argue in favor of this instructional approach, as teaching a skill is an ongoing exercise and we must have frequent opportunities to practice while receiving immediate feedback. With multiple sessions, scaffolding is possible – meaning I can gradually reduce my involvement and shift ownership to you, so you feel confident in your ability to use the skills independently moving forward.

Are you sure it will work if the sessions are virtual (i.e. Skype, Zoom, etc.) vs. in-person?

  • Working virtually allows me to see you in your working environment. Seeing your space when designing the intervention allows me to make tailored recommendations that could easily be missed if we met somewhere else.

Gain control. Find ease. Breathe a sigh of relief.
