Ready for less surviving and more flourishing? Less chaos and more ease? You feel like a hot mess, pouring so much energy into getting by. You want success at school or work, better connections with your partner, friends, and family, and a satisfying sex life. You wish you could have more fun. But past failures, disappointments, heartbreak, or regrets keep haunting you. It feels like the pandemic reinforced these mental and emotional shackles.

Those who come to me are typically looking to become more confident and self assured, feel happier, communicate clearly and confidently, ease anxiety stemming from public speaking or interpersonal interaction, and/or find a fulfilling relationship or recover from a bad one. I am an action oriented coach, and use exercises and tangible tools to increase "stickiness," and forming of new neural pathways. I want to be clear that I am a coach, not a psychologist, therefore if you are experiencing any significant psychological difficulties, I suggest www.drhelenekarlin.com.

I use a holistic, eclectic, strengths based approach when working with clients. This entails embracing the "whole person" and making efforts to understand how all aspects of each person's life impacts their daily functioning. It is important to identify strengths and interest in order to draw upon these components, enabling the development of a comprehensive approach to treatment, which is custom and unique for each individual. I have worked with diverse populations to include; military members and their families via Military OneSource EAP, survivors of sexual assault/domestic violence, addiction (SAP) and various life transitions.
