Relax into the peace of who you truly are and move forward from there.
You are capable of great things. Sometimes you just need someone to see it in you and support you in getting there. As your life coach, it is my goal to help you find peace when you're overwhelmed, clarity and direction when you feel confused, and the motivation and strength to achieve your dreams, so that you can discover and stand in who you really want to be.
It's one thing to be supported on your journey from where you are to where you want to be. It's another to learn the tools to stay there.
I want to help you gain access to a new voice in your head, a new perspective on life, and new patterns that will last a lifetime. When you've been conditioned to believe a particular story, to view yourself and the world through a certain lens, you can get lost in that, and perhaps lose hope that it can ever be any different than the way you believe it to be.
I'm here to remind you that it can be different. I hold space for you to explore the possibilities of your own transformation. I walk beside you as you uncover what's been hiding beneath the surface, waiting to be seen.
You have the innate capacity to create wellness, safety, wholeness, and your own place of perfection.
You are safe, you are loved, you are home.
The dynamics of coaching:
Shift: You feel stuck, and are curious why you keep repeating old patterns and ending up in the same situations over and over again.
Motivate: You seek clarity, direction or purpose in your life.
Transform: You want to feel safe enough to access the parts of your life that are difficult to face, so they can lead you to the life you desire.
Support: You feel alone and in need of a champion, a guide, or simply a strong and compassionate neutral perspective.

What is life coaching?
Life coaching is a dynamic partnership between coach and client in a thought-provoking, creative process that inspires the client to identify, clarify and transform issues in their lives. Life coaches work with their clients to guide and inspire them to design and execute their own solutions to their problems and challenges. They are facilitators of change, and focus on supporting the client to tap into their own innate wisdom and transformation; but they recognize that the client is the only true expert when it comes to their own lives.
Life coaches hold the belief that every person has the capability to access their own answers in order to be, do and have anything they desire. Coaching combines the power of supportive listening, dynamic questioning, and integration of learning to create a powerful recipe for transformation. Tools, action steps, accountability, a road map - with all of these we honor your past, embrace your present, and create your future.
What is the difference between counseling and coaching?
In a counseling session, the main focus is to address the emotions and look to the past to identify the root cause of wounding in order to work through painful feelings. Coaching, in comparison, puts the majority of the focus on the client's growth and forward movement in the present and future. That being said, in my practice it feels important to me to hold space for issues from the past when they arise, because we are not separate from our pasts. They influence who we are and every decision we make.
How much will coaching cost, and how long can I expect it to last?

The actual cost/duration of coaching varies by where you are in the process. Coaching happens in phases, so the actual monthly cost of investing in your growth and achieving your goals will vary depending on what phase of the work you are in. Ultimately, you are in charge of how long and how often you receive sessions. In order to receive the best results my clients and I generally follow these guidelines:
At the beginning of the coaching relationship it is helpful to meet weekly a few times in order to gain traction. At this stage we are developing trust, and beginning to identify and uncover your goals and the obstacles keeping you from reaching those goals. This self-discovery process lays the foundation for the action-oriented work to come.
Once you begin to create clarity, self awareness, and movement in the direction of your goals, it is actually most helpful to cut back on weekly meetings so that you have more time and space to practice the skills, strategies, and ideas that you’re learning in life coaching. During this phase my clients usually meet with me every other week.
When you feel that you are making consistent progress, we change to monthly meetings. This allows you to stand on your own, test your new skills, and determine where you’re feeling confident and where you feel that you need more support. Monthly life coaching sessions help you stay on track
Once they’ve met their goals, most people choose to stay connected with their coach and meet for quarterly “check in” sessions. This allows them to review what strategies are working and what needs to be tweaked in order to continue their forward progress.
Invest in yourself, and in your life. You are worth it.
