J S Coaching Team

Our Mission

To inspire and empower our clients to reach their highest potential by creating harmony and balance in mind, body and spirit.

Our Initiative

When we first met, we deeply connected through our innate devotion to helping individuals overcome challenges,  as well as clarifying the changes they want to make in their lives.   Through many discussions delving into our unique individual styles of inspiring others, it was clear that together we would make an unstoppable coaching team.


JS Coaching clients become motivated to maximize their personal and/or professional potential through our thought-provoking and creative process by harmonizing mind, body, and spirit.  We are grateful for the opportunity to help our clients channel their inner drive and energy more effectively.  Enabling them to no longer feel that something is missing in their lives has been incredibly rewarding.  We are humbled to witness our clients achieve their goals and live their

best lives.

Our Process

In the last 20 years, life coaching has experienced rapid growth and wide acclaim due to the desires of many to make the most out of their lives.  At JS Coaching, we believe that there is a definitive mind-body connection.  Our clients schedule a separate session with each of us every week, and together we form a dynamic coaching team.


Jocelyn Sokol helps our clients move forward in their lives through sessions utilizing effective exercises, visualization, and self-exploration.  Clients will clarify their visions, define their goals, and

co-create a step-by-step action plan.  They will explore and define their core values, and learn how to honor them more in their lives for optimal fulfillment.

Jim Stroker has been emphasizing wellness and mindfulness techniques for years.  Jim uses his unique ability to inspire and motivate our clients to make changes in their lives and overcome challenges and adversity.  He connects with each individual client and helps them develop long lasting life skills of self-compassion, positive self-talk, stress management and resiliency.

"I came into this coaching engagement with a lot of enthusiasm, but at the same time with a bit of reservations and skepticism on what would have been the final result of it.  Session after session I started noticing small changes in my behaviors, and the concepts you transmitted slowly became part of my every day reasoning process.  The combination of Jocelyn's introspective journey, with Jim's "can do/ be brave" attitude transformed me and I find myself more self-aware, calmer, and more focused.  The sessions with Jocelyn and Jim opened a door I was not aware even existed, and I find myself a better leader, a better father, and a better person overall."

G.B., CEO of Fortune 500 company

"I can't express my gratitude enough for what Jim and Jocelyn have done for my son.  He had been experiencing terrible stress and anxiety, and they changed his life, and mine! Jim explained and proved to him how much creating a strong, healthy body could help him in his life, and Jocelyn taught him stress management, how to better handle adversity, and positively change the way he feels about himself and the world around him. "

M. B., Mother of teenage client

"Thank you so much Jim and Jocelyn for helping me.  After I graduated college I had a hard time adjusting to life in the workforce and could not hold down a job. I felt very depressed and full of anxiety. You helped me to look at life in a whole new way, and to figure out what I really wanted to do with my life. You taught me to accept myself, insecurities and all, and build the confidence I needed to go for what I wanted and not worry if I should fail."

L.T., Graphic Designer

"Jim and Jocelyn are helping me during this very hard transition in my life. They have let me know that "it is ok to not be ok". They have helped me decide what career I want to pursue, and given me steps to take each week to achieve my goals. I was feeling very lost and hopeless before I started working with them, and now I see the

light ahead."
