LEARN MORE ABOUT ME

Master Life Coach

Fully-certified since 2008, I’ve been successfully coaching clients throughout the United States, facilitating their self-growth and helping them create, and then achieve their goals. I help identify self-sabotaging behaviors that may be blocking the obtainment of those goals, then help create a solution focused set of goals, that match the client's skill set and belief system. I believe in the “Bio-Individuality” of each client, understanding there is not one particular philosophy or method that works for all personality types.

Addiction, Stress, Lack of Motivation, Weight Issues, “Failure to Launch”, Under-Performance, Hopelessness, and Directionless, are some of the description of issues, or symptoms, I see in my practice. I serve all ages and backgrounds. I am often the resource of “last resort”, after more traditional methods have failed. I work with traditional therapists, counselors and doctors.

SOLUTION FOCUSED APPROACH

I work with each client to develop solutions for the problem areas of their life.  Many of clients have focused on their perceived weakness and lack of abilities, developing a "Learned Helplessness" mindset. By revealing the client's strengths, a switch to a "Growth" mindset becomes possible.  

Solutions and opportunity exist in a "Growth" mindset, a "Learned Helplessness" mindset yields problems and frustrations.

WHAT IS LIFE COACHING ?

Life Coaching is a valuable resource to help you achieve your goals. If you don’t know what your goals are, I can help you develop your goals, as well as a Goal Achievement Plan. This plan is created using proven techniques that match you individually, based on your personality, strengths, beliefs, and experience. Clients who co-create their Goal Achievement Plans are far more likely to be successful than clients who are forced into a predetermined plan, that didn’t consider individuality or willingness.
Life Coaching is about today and moving forward. Life Coaching is solution based, not origin based, as with most traditional forms of therapy. Life Coaching is often used in conjunction with traditional forms of therapy. If your needs exceed my scope of practice, I have an excellent referral network of therapist and doctors that I have worked closely with for many years.
