Why I became a Coach…
I became interested in coaching after I finished the academic requirements of my masters program. I had to complete a long internship and began the search for an appropriate setting. It prompted me to do an in-depth assessment of what I believed about people and the best way to be a support for them to achieve their dreams. The future-focused, goal oriented framework of coaching appealed to me and is complemented by my training in psychology, which allows me to deal with some of the deeper issues that appear during the coaching process.
I believe in focusing on past successes. People spend a great deal of time remembering past failures, and family and friends can sometimes encourage living in a perpetual state of regret and remorse. I believe that every woman has the right and the ability to live a life full of passion and purpose. Far too many of us are so used to being in pain, spiritual, emotional or physical, that we have forgotten that there is another way to live. The way forward is not easy. Change never is, but it is worthwhile. You owe it to yourself and the people who love you to take the time to heal yourself. Healing your physical body through an understanding of proper nutrition and exercise is a perfect first step toward optimal living.
Wellness is about the interconnected elements of mental health, physical health and spiritual health.
My purpose and passion is helping women work through feelings of inertia and helplessness to live lives full of inspiration, joy and hope. I have been in that place where it truly seemed like things couldn’t get any worse and would never get any better. Now I am here, in that better place, offering to use my wisdom and education to help you move out of your painful place into the promise of the exceptional future you deserve.
