Programs and Fees

Unlike some Recovery Coaches, I don’t assign gimmicky labels like “Gold” “Platinum” or “Bronze” to my services.  What you can anticipate is that Recovery Coaching fees are commensurate with the number and frequency of Coaching encounters, and the support that is available between each encounter, depending on your personal and professional needs and circumstances.


I.D.E.A.L. Recovery Coaching is an investment in your long term well being because it will help you integrate your recovery agenda with your broader life goals. IRC builds value in your life by steadying your focus on your long-term recovery objectives and the personal strengths and resources necessary to your success.

I don’t take on new clients without an initial conversation or complimentary coachingSuccess Ideas Teamwork Plans Signpost Showing Business Plans And Organization encounter. There is never an obligation or charge for this first discussion. Our initial conversation occurs over the telephone or other electronic or remote media from the privacy and security of your home or office.  It can last from 10-50 minutes.

Our first discussion is an opportunity to learn about one another and explore our connectivity.  You may not be ready for Recovery Coaching or I may not be the right Coach for your situation or recovery agenda.  Like the coaching relationship itself, absolute confidentiality and discretion is extended to each of our interactions.

If our initial discussion leads to you hiring me as your Recovery Coach, various programs and compensation arrangements can be tailored to suit your needs and circumstances.  I provide IRC services on a monthly, hourly, or flat fee basis, and offer sliding scale services as well.

Generally, one can expect the following fee framework will apply unless otherwise specifically agreed in writing:

Introductory Recovery Coaching Services 90-days of I.D.E.A.L. Recovery Coaching support includes 4 monthly Recovery Coaching encounters of up to 50 minutes each: $2,100.00

Create Your Own Program I.D.E.A.L. Coaching services are also available on a pay-as-you-go monthly or hourly basis per the above fee schedule.

Telephone, Email & Other Support Between Encounters

Where Recovery Coaching packages include between-session email and telephone support, such support consists of up to 5 telephone calls of not more than 15 minutes each and up to 15 email exchanges per week.  Additional coaching support can be tailored to your needs and  may incur separate fees.


Payments may be made via personal or certified check.  Payments must be made in advance of the Coaching services for which payments are being made.

Cancellations & Refunds

I.D.E.A.L Coaching offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee and will gladly refund pro rata all advanced payments for any scheduled encounter(s) that have not yet occurred.

Coaching clients purchase a Coach’s personal commitment to set aside a definite, scheduled time period each week, to be prepared for each encounter, and to listen to and engage you with respect to your personal recovery agenda and the challenges you are facing.  Therefore, Recovery Coaching fees are generally considered earned when they are paid and encounter dates scheduled.

If you must cancel a scheduled session, refunds are discretionary where cancellations are not made in advance of a scheduled session.  This means refunds for a regularly scheduled but missed session is discretionary.
