    My Experience with Karli K’s life coaching was amazing ! Going in I was at a low point in my life. I never knew I needed a life coach until I met her. She is a great listener and really took the time to understand who I was as a person. Something that stood out to me during our sessions that many of my past therapists lacked was the way that she presented advice to me. The advice she gave was specifically for me and pertinent to my story , not advice on what she would do if she were me . Her passion and positive outlook made all of our encounters very comforting for me. Thank you for inspiring me to live a more successful and purposeful life. I truely enjoyed working with such an incredible person like you !

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Working with new customers is for me to have this client feel as naturally comfortable as possible. I offer an half hour of consultation to explain what is it is that I do and how I can better serve you by getting you from point A to B. After this consultation we both would have a greater sense of  our next steps.

How did you get started in this business?

Interestingly, I am also a cosmetologist. Starting out being a hair stylist back in 1990, I had multiple clients who sat in my chair who found comfort in confiding in me telling me their most private and intimate life occupancies. They have shed tears, to simply just wanting someone to listen. I had always been an effective listener and a confidant. Mind you  I had started matriculation in being a lawyer. I was so sure my ultimate passion was being a lawyer, and thought nothing on this earth would ever stop me from being that attorney. To my surprise, I owe all honors to my hair clients. They opened my eyes. They have always said, Karli or Karlene " you should be a therapist, you should be a motivational speaker, you should counsel people" etc. on a daily basis that's all I heard YOU SHOULD BE A THERAPIST). I laid in bed one day, and said to myself, what is going on here. Why everyone thinks I should be a therapist. But meanwhile I'm asking myself this question, I was LOVING the way I dealt with my clients, because in the end the results they found to be very satisfying, and I felt such a rewarding feeling. I felt as though I was on top of the world. If you came in sad, you were leaving happy. If you came in, in distressed, I will lift the burden. Then I said ok, let me switch up a little bit and enroll myself in the psychology program and see if this is where I belonged. It was the best thing I've ever done.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Please, please make sure you connect with your provider. You need to feel a level of comfort.
Make sure your provider is not " text book stricken" , you need someone with skills, and who will aid you in getting you results.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Don't be afraid of asking anything. Ask EVERYTHING without crossing boundaries. This is relationship building.
