Together, we can create a beautiful, balanced life.
I work with adults and adolescents who are struggling with issues related to identity and self esteem. I want to empower you and help you gain a better sense of self, understand your boundaries, broaden your perspective and improve your daily experience. In working together, we can address the makeup of your body, mind and soul and how they interact with one another. I believe that our minds and physical bodies are all a part of one system, which is also known as embodiment - how the mind influences the body and how the body influences our thoughts, emotions and intentions.

By changing the individual's "thought reflex", they find that they are able to achieve a greater sense of focus in life.
My experience has allowed me to work with people from all over the world with both chronic and minor mental health concerns. As a clinician I have worked with people who have depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorders, (PTSD)trauma and a history of family violence. My approach is primarily cognitive behavioral with a significant emphasis on the person's present. Those who would benefit are people who are looking at moving forward with their life with more deliberation and direction. Moving away from seeing themselves as the result of their circumstances but as the master of their being.

Your child's school may have reached out to you to discuss concerns related to their academic and social emotional wellness. You may find yourself questioning your relationship with your child and wondering what their behaviors are telling you. It might be difficult to get up in the morning and stay present throughout the day. That ray of sunshine may feel like it's far in the distance. If so, I am here to help your child, teen, and family.

I provide life coaching for people who are experiencing anxiety, stress, or lack of motivation due to general life issues related to career, health, and relationships.
It is no secret that life is full of challenges. We all face problematic emotional, social, career, family, and relationship issues that rob us of happiness. The phrase "you live and you learn" is so true, and the learning never stops. There is opportunity to grow in every obstacle we encounter. We have the ability to be reflective and think critically about our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. The key is in identifying how all three of these attributes work together to help you achieve your goals or push you farther away for what you are trying to achieve.

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.
