The Personal Growth & Life Path programs (featured in ABC, CBS NBC & FOX news journals ) are designed to help reveal your full potential and life's purpose.
If your behavior does not reflect your core potential, make this your day to initiate personal growth & evolutionary change. Learn how to discover and employ your personal power to activate transformation! As a Personal Empowerment Coach, I help clients learn cognitive restructuring and behavior modification techniques to release their "authentic self" making change operational in their everyday life. I address physical, mental, emotional & spiritual issues through a wellness paradigm vs. symptom treatment approach. My philosophy is framed from a strength based perspective, "what's well with you" not "what's wrong with you".

Is Therapy for you? Life is an incredible journey but is not without its challenges. While some of those experiences are beyond our control, many are the outcome of our choices. We can find ourselves in unfulfilling relationships, challenging times or lack luster careers. Our thoughts can take us to negative places where depression, anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed may take control. Usually people seek out therapy when they are having a hard time managing it alone. It's one of those things that we resist, convinced that we can work it out ourselves. Most of the times we do yet when we feel unhappy, therapy can help.

I believe one of your goals in life should be to continually learn how to resolve the problems you run into. Obviously some problems do not go away and cannot be easily resolved. With these, you must learn understanding and coping skills to manage them instead of allowing these problems to manage you. This is what counseling is all about.

I specialize in working with individuals and couples dealing with professional or family struggles, relationship discord, fears around intimacy and closeness, lack of motivation, perfectionism, life and career transitions, self-defeating thoughts and behaviors, feelings of emptiness or isolation, trauma, and loss or grief.
Many individuals suffer under the heaviness of their anger, sadness, fear, and pain; others battle to feel anything at all. Self-esteem, relationships, or work can suffer when early cognitive, emotional, and behavioral patterns are applied to new situations. Although it may be intimidating, exploring your thoughts, feelings, and experiences within the context of a safe therapeutic relationship can increase your awareness and perception of control over your internal world. Throughout the therapeutic process, you will find your strength, resilience, purpose, and, ultimately, your freedom to shape your external world more effectively.

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.
