Anything below sound familiar?

  • Do you continually bump up against emotional, situational or spiritual roadblocks that stop you from moving forward in life?
  • Do you continuously feel frustrated by poor health, body image or food choices?
  • Are you torn between choosing the road less taken and the one that’s more practical, accessible and safe?
  • Are you wondering if you’ve chosen the wrong partner, career, degree or lifestyle, but feel powerless to try something different?
  • Are you feeling captive to your habits and powerless to change them?
  • Does your world seem monotonous, vacant and bleak, perhaps causing you to search for greater meaning and purpose in life?
  • Do you long to take healthy risks and create positive change, but fear that it’s too late to go in a new direction?

When you’ve spent your whole life in a relentless race to keep up with the Joneses, it’s easy to feel your time on Earth is slipping away. Perhaps you’ve become a zombie to the nine-to-five, someone who does just enough to get by, but draws little passion, fulfillment or enthusiasm from life. You may feel as though you’re stuck in endless negative patterns, perhaps constantly choosing the wrong partner or making decisions that don’t support your ambitions. You may feel like you’re ineffective at everything you do, perhaps thwarted at every attempt to lose weight, eat healthier or exercise more. Perhaps you worry you’re secretly a failure at life, unable to achieve success in your career, attract a loving partner or successfully raise your children.

When you reflect on your life, you might see someone who has repeatedly made decisions that were easy, predictable and practical. Perhaps you chose a career that provided financial security rather than pursuing your true passion. Maybe you got married, had kids and bought a house because that’s what you thought you were supposed to do. Or, maybe you moved to a new city even though your heart was somewhere else. Or, perhaps you do crossfit six times a week while secretly longing to join a yoga studio. Regardless of the direction your life has taken, you may now find yourself bombarded with regret, perhaps hearing a nagging voice in the back of your mind begging you to create change.You may long to create positive change in your life, but find yourself paralyzed by a pervasive fear of failure and the unknown.

Finding Fulfillment Is a Timeless Struggle

You may feel alone in your struggle to find fulfillment, but nothing can be further from the truth. Almost every person feels, has felt or will feel disillusioned with some aspect of his or her life. Regardless of whether you’re rich or poor, a movie star or a real estate agent, an artist or an accountant, you will likely struggle in the epic pursuit of finding happiness.

Like anything worthwhile in life, discovering true fulfillment requires persistence, patience, dedication and hard work. So many of us become hindered by fear and emotional, spiritual and behavioral roadblocks that keep us from making choices that are conducive to finding happiness. Thankfully, life coaching can provide you with a structured time and space in which you can reflect on your life experience and identify what it is you truly want out of life. Only then can you begin to make choices that are based on how you want to feel rather than on what you think you should be doing. If you what you’re doing in your life is not making you feel heartfelt alignment it’s time to create change.

Therapeutic Life Coaching Can Help You Find A New Direction

Therapeutic Life coaching can be 100 percent effective in terms of moving you from where you are to where you want to be. Hiring a coach is hiring someone to help you bridge from where you are, to where you want to be. However, its effectiveness entirely depends on your level of commitment, investment and willingness to make changes in your life. When these criteria are met, therapeutic life coaching can provide a structured environment in which you can self-reflect in a real, authentic way. By slowing down and assessing the status quo in your life, you can begin to see what’s working and what’s not and start preparing yourself to try something different. Ultimately, you’ll have a safe space where you’ll be able to talk about painful thoughts, emotions and experiences with someone who is committed to your happiness.

During sessions, we’ll explore whether the life you’re living is different than the one you want and develop a concrete action plan to restore happiness and fulfillment. Together we’ll examine the different domains in your life—your career, lifestyle, relationships, health and spiritual wellbeing. We’ll then define what you want to achieve in each area and identify what changes need to be made for you to accomplish your goals. Through this process, you can can stop getting stuck in behavioral patterns that are counterproductive to you finding fulfillment and instead start making choices and taking actions that can increase your chances of achieving your dreams. You can begin to let go of self-defeating thoughts and behaviors and orient yourself toward a renewed hope for a beautiful future.

I firmly believe that you already know the answers to your questions, even if the answers are obscured, concealed or hidden inside. Your coaching will be about knowing the right questions to ask and having the right tools and techniques to find the answers within yourself. Ultimately, you can connect your head to your heart and transform your life into one that seems worth living because it is replete with joy, gratitude and renewed optimism.

Perhaps you’re ready to try life coaching, but have questions and concerns…

Life coaching is too expensive.

Coaching does cost money, but how much have you spent on buying new clothes to feel good about your body? How many diets and gym memberships have you purchased? How often do you overindulge in food, alcohol or drugs to mitigate feelings of loneliness? By devoting resources to momentary pleasures, you might actually be neglecting what matters most: your sense of happiness in the long term. Sessions with me will ultimately be an investment in your wellbeing. My commitment to you is that I will work as efficiently as possible to collaboratively get the job done.

It’s not the right time to seek the help of life coaching.

There’s no time like the present to start living the life you want. Don’t put off for tomorrow what could be life-changing today.

I want to follow my dreams, but change at this point is too risky.

Change is risky. We fear change, but we also fear doing the same destructive behaviors over and over again. I can help you identify and understand your fears, which can ultimately make the unknown seem much less scary.

Change is Possible
