I meet in person at the locations below in San Diego CA, USA. Most of my meetings are virtually via videoconference or phone with people worldwide.
In Person: This map approximates my travel range for in-person visits at clinics, homes, public libraries, and book/coffee shops. Although I prefer meeting in person, I usually travel only to an initial appointment or in order to meet concierge coaching needs. I cannot afford to spend too much time in traffic and charge a reduced rate for my travel time, see fees below.
To reduce the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission, needed in-person appointments will be held outdoors. Such meetings may require creative use of portable chairs and umbrellas for us to find a comfortable and private place to have a coaching conversation while maintaining several feet of space between us. The five locations below have public outdoor spaces.
Online: Most of my coaching sessions are face-to-face videoconferences that provide the heart-to-heart feeling of meeting at a single location while sparing us both the commute. Videoconferencing allows us to meet wherever you are in the world with internet access. People I work with in their 40s to 80s in a numerous different countries all manage to get the Zoom videoconferencing working with a few clicks and, if needed, by following my instructions at the top of the FAQ webpage.
