I am Nellie Porter, a certified Life Coach in Virginia Beach, Va.  My experiences serving as an Active Duty Service member and spending the last decade of my career in a Senior Leadership position has allowed me the opportunities to help members reach their personal and career goals.  My immediate time after serving was spent working at Fleet Family Support Center on Dam Neck Annex providing Life Skills and Education to both family members and Active Duty of the area. This role allowed me to see the impact I could make on educating future clients on co-parenting while in the military, referring people to seek mental health counseling, coaching people on how to best prepare for advancement, and advising families to seek family therapy after experiencing major life events in the military such as homecomings, deployments, and stressful events. 

  My approach as a Coach differs from a therapeutic approach in that I am not working with the mental health aspect of therapy. I am providing coaching and education around an agreed upon topic to which we problem solve together to find a solution. I will reserve the right to refer clients should they need a higher level of care.   My specialties include but are not limited to:   Military Career Advancement Coaching,  Stress Management Coaching  Retirement Transitioning Coaching,  Anger Management Coaching,  Military Parenting, Coaching  Divorce Mediation  

Conflict Mediation

Mediation is a process where a mediator facilities effective communication between parties without solving the problem or giving advice on how to solve the issue.  The issue on hand must be solved by the parties involved resulting in an agreed upon resolution.   

A mediator is an impartial third party who understanding the importance of relationships during any conflict, I am committed to providing constructive conflict resolution practices to all parties in order to reach an agreed resolution by all parties involved.    Mediation allows for all parties to be heard and all information is presented so a fair and honest solution is the end goal.   Mediators do not provide legal counsel or advice.  The mediation process must be agreed upon by all parties.
