Hello! I’m Monika, an intuitive counselor, guide, coach, and space holder. I offer sessions that support you in building a relationship of trust with your inner wisdom. They're an invitation for you to become more deeply attuned to every part of you and establish a sense of home within. We do this through deep listening to what is presently coming up in life, energy healing (like Reiki), breath, movement, and meditation practices, and through intuitive messages from guides. Our work supports you in learning how to: ground into your center, set boundaries to protect your energy, and practice discernment (what’s true for you).

What to expect: Coaching is both loving and rigorous.
Who you are: Between the ages of 25 and 45. Life is "good" ~ not great. You have a sense that things should be a certain way, but they aren't. There is a gap. The gap may be clear ~ it may not. What is clear is that what has worked up until this point won't get you to where you want to be. You are ready for a change.

Your future depends on what you do in the present. Making changes, no matter how small, can afford you the opportunity to increase your personal growth. For many people knowing where to start can be the greatest hurdle. For others, knowing does not always lead to "doing". Counseling is one avenue in exploring what you can do to make a difference in your life.

Life Coaching Therapists

What can I expect from life coaching?

Clients and coaches will typically start by identifying the problem area(s) that the client hopes to address—then, the coach will help the client brainstorm potential solutions and explore concrete techniques to help the client attain their goals. Coaching is typically short-term and focused on finding solutions in the here and now, rather than exploring a client’s past. In addition to strategies aimed at the client’s specific concerns, coaches may encourage general stress management techniques such as meditation.

Can a life coach help treat anxiety?

Because the majority of life coaches are not licensed clinicians, they are not qualified to diagnose or treat anxiety. Anyone struggling with anxiety or another mental health condition should seek help from a licensed mental health practitioner. However, some coaching clients who struggle with subclinical anxiety report that working with their coach on other problems—such as career dissatisfaction or unhealthy habits—has a positive effect on their anxiety.

Can life coaching be done online?

Yes. While life coaching often happens in person, many coaches conduct sessions over the phone or via online platforms such as Zoom or Skype. Because life coaches are not subject to local licensing regulations in the same way that therapists are, they are able to see clients who live in other locations.

How long does life coaching last?

Life coaching tends to be a shorter-term process than therapy, though it does not always unfold over a specific period of time and is instead based on the coach’s or the client’s preferences. Coaching often takes place over three to 12 months but may be shorter or longer if necessary.
