We all need that one person we can go to when life seems unbearable, without feeling we are a bother or without feeling judged.
From personal experience, in addition to educational and professional experience, I understand the importance of providing a safe space for clients. It is sometimes hard to find people you can trust with your feelings or thoughts. Perhaps you feel judged or misunderstood. Maybe you have been desperately needing someone to talk to that is open-minded and eager to listen to understand you. Are you involved in an unhealthy relationship? Do you feel ashamed or indifferent about your experience? I am passionate about providing emotional support and shelter you may need, while we work together with concerns you may have.

You can live the life you deserve if you are willing to do the work and I am committed to assisting you.
Struggles with confidence, insecurities, unaddressed trauma, inappropriate coping skills and a host of other barriers keep us from living the best version of lives. These issues can result in anxiety, depression, impulsivity, disassociation and other mental health issues that do not serve us. In turn, these factors interfere with our ability to adapt during life transitions and engage in healthy relationships with those around us. However, this doesn't have to be your reality.

Maybe you're overwhelmed with negative thoughts, patterns, and past experiences. Life happens all over our plans sometimes, which can hinder our progress and impact our daily quality of life. It can be hard to determine how to move forward, where to start, and develop a concrete plan without getting stressed beyond a level we can manage.

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.
