answers to frequently asked questions

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

As your first step, I recommend scheduling a free consultation call. From there, you can choose a coaching package that suits you best. You will then receive a code to take The ULT Assessment. All coaching sessions must be scheduled at least 7 days in advance.
All documents will be emailed to you within 24 hours of your purchase.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a BS in Biochemistry, MS. in Communication Management and the highest level of certification from The Y.O.U. Institute as a Professional Life Coach and Trainer.
My specialty is in understanding natural human behavior and individuality. I have a diverse background that spans from science to technology and human relations with over a decade in start-ups, team building, and agile development methodology. My passion and drive have always circled back to human behavior and what motivates us on an individualized basis. I have been a practicing professional coach since 2008.

How did you get started doing this type of work?

I have always been fascinated with how different people are from one another and what makes us tick. During my college days, I wanted to be a physician. I wanted to help people heal. While doing my volunteer work at one of the busiest ERs in the country, I realized I wasn’t cut out for blood and physical pain. That realization led to having a change of heart and going back to school to learn about communication and computers.
After working in some of the fastest pace companies, I realized my purpose has always been to heal, to soothe, to guide and to help people live with peace in all of their relationships. I chose Life Coaching as a practical, hands-on and interactive method to do just that.
My background has expanded my horizons beyond my imagination and has allowed me to have a unique way to relate to people from all walks of life. I’m grateful beyond measures to be a source of useful information and inspiration in people’s lives.

What types of customers have you worked with?

My clients come from all professions, backgrounds, genders, and ages. They have been asking for answers and are ready to make real progress on all fronts. They are committed to doing the work, but most importantly receptive to expanding their awareness.

Describe a recent coaching outcome you are fond of. How long did it take?

The biggest fulfillment in my life comes from witnessing the successes that my clients have achieved in their personal and professional life. I have seen tremendous improvement in how my clients feel about themselves, others, and life. This for me is truly gratifying. There really isn’t a set timeline for experiencing the shift.
Everyone is absolutely different and in a different chapter of his/her life. I recently completed a coaching package with 25 individuals that work very closely with one another and had been experiencing numerous challenges in their communications and productivity.
After just 90 days, once everyone went through their one on one sessions and group coaching, they began to see the positive changes in themselves and each other. The natural by-product of professional coaching was an improved personal life as well.

What advice would you give someone looking to hire a life & relationship coach?

1) Know that there is not a cookie-cutter solution or answer to your questions. We are all as unique as our thumbprints. What works for me, may not work for you. So when selecting a Life Coach, you want to evaluate their methodology and make sure that they have a way of understanding you beyond your past history or what you may perceive of yourself or others.

2) Find out if the coach is willing to have a free phone or video conferencing consultation with you. If it important that you talk first before making a commitment.

3) If you’re looking for a career development coach, it is important that the individual is familiar with the industry you’re interested in exploring and/or has an understanding of the nature of that profession.

What questions should someone think through before talking to a professional coach?

1) Your commitment to learning a new way of approaching your life and your relationships is very important. Before investing in a Life Coach, ask yourself: how committed am I?

2) Think about your availability to put in the work. My coaching sessions are very interactive and require your attention as well as participation in taking action.

3) It is important to reduce the negative influences around you while you’re focusing on you. Take an inventory of your life right now. Are you distracted by something or someone? Are you in a toxic relationship? or are the people around you supportive of your personal growth? These are important questions to ask yourself. Either way, you definitely want to discuss them with your coach.

4) Lastly, I am so proud of you seeking help, guidance, and ways to enhance your life. You got the first step covered.

The world is made up of 7.3 billion people who are as unique as their thumbprints. Being able to understand what these differences mean in respect to behavior, motivation, communication & tolerance can pave the way for success in every platform of life.

I have been working with Haleh for about a year and it’s been exhilarating and life changing! Initially, I went for reasons regarding love, and it has broadened to so much more.

Jennifer R.

What Haleh did for my marriage in just a couple of months, we were not able to achieve with years of counseling. She identifies the issues AND gives you the tools that you need to make the changes. Sessions are not just talking about everything that’s wrong, but they also provide insight to who you are and how you work which allows you to make the growth that you need in order to navigate your personal life and relationships.

Esther B.

Haleh explains things clearly, connects you to helpful resources, and provides you with action steps to break self defeating patterns and enhance your individual strengths. She truly teaches you that there’s nothing wrong with you. I am a better person for knowing her and recommend her to anyone looking to truly upgrade their life!

Kelly W.

Haleh’s practical wisdom combined with her deep expertise with the ULT tool is a powerful combination for anyone in life/work transitions! I’ve consulted with her, as well as referred clients. The information and advice she provides is always right on target and immediately useful.

Vasi H.

Haleh helped me to understand my new assistant and how we can work together in an optimal way. She consulted with us on how we can work together in a way that maximizes our productivity by recognizing our individual unique characteristics and traits. I found her entire process educational, worthwhile and very useful.

Brian C.

Haleh’s commitment to her clients is unsurpassed. Her ability to focus on the big picture (while not ignoring important details) and anticipate future issues is strong. I would recommend any one looking for direction or just a genuine person talk should contact 505 Living!

Roger S.

I don’t always feel comfortable talking with people about my life and business, however something about the way Haleh talks and presents herself really makes me feel comfortable. She is poised, professional and most importantly I truly believe that she is in this business for the right reason: to help people achieve their goals. I strongly recommend 505 Living.

Mallory K.

I was blown away by how meaningful my assessment and session with Haleh was. I had never used this approach to learning about myself before, but I am definitely glad that I gave myself a chance to embrace it. I couldn’t believe how much I learned in such a short period of time.

Chris Y.

Haleh has been such a positive influence in my life for the 2 years. The fact that Haleh uses this amazing assessment only adds to the value that she offers as a highly intuitive, wise, and caring person and coach. Haleh truly “walks her talk” and lives what she teaches. Working with Haleh was one of the best investments I made in my life, and I cannot recommend her enough!

Courtney G.

I found Haleh and 505 Living at a critical point in my life – without her calming force and insight through the Ultimate Life Tool technology I honestly don’t think I could have managed to get through a very challenging time in my life as well as I did.
