I am a Certified Life Coach with years of experience in supporting people through life struggles, goals and aspirations. I create a safe and calm environment so that we can build trust and hold space free from judgement. Confidentiality, integrity and ethical behavior are paramount in the way that I conduct my practice.
My process is based in buddhist principals which can lead to the misconception that it is a pursuit in religion. Although there can be a spiritual element to this work it in no way promotes the religious aspects of buddhism and rather has a deep respect for whatever spiritual beliefs each client brings to the table including atheism. This is an exploration of the principals of buddhism which lays out a clear path on how to shift ones habitual thought patterns from self defeating beliefs to empowering beliefs. In addition I utilize training in various modalities to support this system in order to maximize the impact and the time it takes to achieve results.
One misconception about buddhism in the west is that it is all soft and pretty and spiritually bypasses the real issues. This could not be further from the truth. Although there certainly are techniques to reduce stress, the dharma teaches us to face all of the aspects of our inner psyche and our external environment in order to understand them. Facing the truth can be mucky business but getting through the muck to the other side is how we grow. This can have profound effects on our life by providing us with a firm grounding beneath our feet and a freedom to breathe without fear.
We are living through a time that is scary and depressing for a lot of people. Many of us are grieving in various ways. We may feel socially divided, isolated, politically charged, economically challenged or paranoid. We hear fearful messages through media many times over which has a profound effect on our psyche. Most people don’t realize how much they have been subconsciously and negatively effected by these messages. By cultivating awareness and consciousness we gain the insight necessary to take our mind back and choose a healthier and more realistic perspective for ourselves.
If you are struggling in some area of your life or are ready to make a change to better yourself and need support, please reach out to me with any questions or to set up a free consultation. My current fee is $50 an hour which is quite a bit less than most therapists and many clients have reported that they have accomplished more with me than they have in psychotherapy. I am not licensed to diagnose or treat mental disorders and therefor can refer people with those needs. I am currently taking clients through the zoom platform.
