Tired of enduring a difficult life, career or relationship? Looking for practical, out-of-the-box solutions for anxiety, depression, and the life circumstances that cause them? Tried therapy before with disappointing results? For 35 years, I have been augmenting traditional therapeutic methods with a variety of techniques, including EMDR Therapy, CRM Therapy, heart rate variability training (Heartmath), body centered approaches, mindfulness training, hypnosis, and ego-state interventions, to facilitate deep internal changes. These interventions take place within the context of a safe, non-judgmental, and supportive environment. My therapeutic style is interactive, engaging, and collaborative.

I know that trying to cope with added pressures in life can create anxiety and depressive symptoms that, at times, feel lonely, strenuous, and persistent. What is often overlooked is the fear, guilt, loss, anger, and sadness associated with the changes it has brought to your life and those around you. Attending counseling can be an essential aspect of your healthcare strategy.

Rebuilding one's life can be very challenging without the appropriate tools.
My approach to psychotherapy is to help my clients understand their conflicts by getting at the roots of their wounds, so they are able to treat themselves with self-compassion and healing. The goal of therapy is to not only unburden the pain one carries, but to help transform inner negative beliefs and cultivate radical self-love.

Has your life changed in a way that has left you feeling untethered? Loss is an inherent aspect of change — loss of comfortable routines and settings, parts of our identities, the vision of how we thought our lives would look, and relationships and people we hold dear. These losses reverberate and impact how we approach and react to all aspects of our lives, and I’m here to help you sort through which of your behaviors are serving you and offer unconditional support as you learn to leave behind those that are not. We'll work together to strengthen your self-knowledge and trust in your ability to handle whatever life brings.

Many of our personal, emotional and relationship problems are simply caused by a lack of self awareness, adapting to new situations and negative thinking patterns. Healthier ways of thinking and having greater self awareness helps work through these day to day challenges. We have great strengths and gifts that are not always easy to notice or understand at first. Personal growth, developing coping strategies, improving communication and making positive life changes can enormously help resolve these issues.

They want to enjoy themselves more and be in their heads less. They want to have better boundaries, better choices of who and what they give their attention to, and better self-talk as they navigate the ins and outs of relationships. They feel over-sensitive; are questioning their life choices; are realizing they want to feel more confidence, connection, and joy.

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.
