You don't have to go it alone
I've helped hundreds of clients achieve their social goals. I can help you, too.

As a social coaching client, you will:

  • Uncover the specific roadblocks that hold you back from social success
  • Master the bedrock social principles that you need to connect with others.
  • Discover the essential tools that can help anybody feel confident and overcome anxiety

My coaching strategy has three main parts.

First, I work with you to determine what success looks like. What are your goals? What do you hope to accomplish from coaching?

Next, I identify the roadblocks keeping you from reaching that success. Do you lack a specific skill? Do you struggle with anxiety? Are you caught up in self-defeating thoughts?

Finally, once we've identified the source of your social success, then we work together to overcome that roadblock. If you are lacking a specific social skill, I'll coach you in it. If fear is the culprit, we'll do exercises to build your confidence. If your self-defeating thoughts are forcing you to self-sabotage, we'll develop some strategies for thinking positive.

What Social Skills Coaching Can Help With

Social skills coaching will look a little different for everyone, depending on the specific goals that brought someone to coaching. However, these are some common examples of the topics we might address:

Making make more friends

Most of my clients struggle with this issue in one way or another. Whether you're a student wanting to connect more with classmates or a professional in a new city struggling to make connections, I can help. We'll figure out your best options for meeting folks you can connect with, and help you confidently move those connections into real friendships.

Overcoming feelings of awkwardness or self-consciousness

Feeling nervous in social situations? You're not alone - but there's hope. I can help you shake off feelings of awkwardness or self-consciousness that keep you stuck in your own head instead of enjoying the moment.

Navigating social situations with confidence

Whether you're looking for help in making conversation, participating in group interactions, or speaking up more at work, I can help you build the skills to interact successfully and the confidence to use them.

Finding fulfilling romantic relationships

Every great romantic relationship is built on a great friendship. While I'm not a traditional "dating coach" (I won't proofread your Tinder profile, sorry), I can help you make authentic person-to-person connections with potential partners, and gain skills for deepening intimacy and romance naturally over time.

How Much Does Social Skills Coaching Cost?

Social skills coaching is $300 for a 55-minute call. You can prepay for a bundle of four sessions to get a discounted rate of $250 per call.

If that isn't affordable for you, I have a few discounted session slots open for folks in financial need. This drops my rate as low as $150 per session. I'm normally able to offer each client a maximum of three sessions at the discounted rate in order to maintain availability for other clients who can't afford my standard rate.

Is Social Skills Coaching Right For You?

Coaching isn't right for everyone. You should consider these questions before signing up.

Are you ready to do the work?

Coaching only works if you actually use the advice I offer. If you're not ready to challenge yourself and make changes in your life, you won't benefit from my coaching.

If you're not sure, you might want to start with my book Level Up Your Social Life. Level Up is full of specific steps that you can take to apply the concepts from the book to your everyday life.

After you practice consistently applying the lessons of Level Up Your Social Life, you should be ready to benefit from coaching.

Do you have the support you need?

Coaching is not therapy, so it can't treat mental health issues such as depression. If you are struggling with a mental health problem, please find a local therapist - they will be able to help you.

I'm happy to work with people that struggle with mental health issues, but I don't want anyone to come to me for coaching instead of getting the help they really need from a therapist.

So please seek out a therapist first, and then start coaching with me. Social skills coaching can be a great supplement to therapy, but it is not a substitute.

Are you trying to manipulate others?

My goal is to help you make meaningful, lasting connections with others. The best way to do that is to treat others with respect and compassion, which means that sleazy tricks based in social manipulation have no place in my social coaching.

If you are looking to manipulate your way to social success, I encourage you to choose a better path. You'll never find the connection you crave until you learn to relate to others without manipulation.
