What is Coaching?

Support to play your best game.

Coaching is "partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential." (International Coach Federation)

When you're doing something new or important, your brain is primed to find danger and seek safety. Buddhists call this "Monkey Mind," for that aspect of the mind that is always chattering at us as it swings between doubt and worry.

Coaching helps you learn, grow, and develop skills so you can consistently follow your voice of wisdom and act on what truly matters to you.

How is coaching different from other support?

A coach is someone who partners with you and supports you to:

Therapy is healing for the past; coaching is for taking action in the present.

Consulting offers expert advice; coaching draws out your own expertise.

Mentoring offers the mentor's wisdom; coaching uncovers your wisdom.

Training fulfills set learning objectives; coaching clarifies your own objectives.

None are "better" than the other. They are simply tools for different purposes.

Emma Newman Money Life Coach


My approach is rooted in ontology, the study of being. We focus on the values we live by, the contribution we want to make to others, and ultimately the legacy we want to be known for. My viewing point as a coach stems from these premises:

My approach centers compassionate presence and reflective listening to help you:

What Clients Say:

"I sought life coaching because I felt like it was time I had outside support in aligning my current actions with long-term goals. It is hard for me to link the many aspects of my life dreams together with my core values, beliefs, and current life responsibilities. I could better see the big picture and path to get to where I want to go when working with Emma because of her insight, curiosity, and partnership in my life ambitions."

Ashlee M., Graduate Student

"Emma was wonderful to work with. She patiently and non-judgmentally invited my husband and myself to engage with our finances in a healthy, productive way. Our time with her was very impactful and we will be forever grateful!"
