Counseling & coaching to help you create a life that feels more wholehearted, peaceful, and inspired!
I help people who seem to have it all together actually feel that way.
Do any of these sound like you?
Often feel tense, stressed or anxious
Struggle with anger and frustration
Overly-high standards or perfectionistic tendencies
Frequent feelings of self-doubt
Have a difficult time moving the needle forward on your goals
Feel hurt by past negative experiences
Struggle with communication in your relationships
If you answered "yes" to any of these, don't worry, you're not alone! Men and women tell me they want their life to feel wholehearted, authentic, and peaceful. They want to be connected to others, have purpose, joy, creativity, and adventure. But they struggle to experience any of these things!
If this is you, I believe you deserve a life that feels just as good on the inside as it looks on the outside.
Can Counseling or Coaching Help Me?
Many of my clients report that their lives change so significantly through their work with me that family and friends have been stunned and asked what in the world happened to them!
What changes for them?
They say through coaching they are able to be more authentic, peaceful, and better at intimacy in their relationships. They begin having the confidence to pursue things that scared them before (authoring a book, taking a class, or switching careers). They feel less anxious, more self-assured, and clearer about where they are headed. They get unstuck.
Maybe you've thought you can fix your problems by yourself, but you're having a difficult time actually making progress.
The issue isn’t that you aren’t smart enough or capable enough, it's that you can’t do this type of transformation alone! No one can make big changes in their lives by themselves - we all need other people to help us.
What is it worth to experience freedom?
Live with more peace and less stress
Have better relationships and connect easier with the people you love
Have healthy ways of coping with your emotions
Be free from painful memories of events from your past
Feel confident and worthy of all that life has to offer
It it worth it? Yes, it is!

What is Counseling Like?
Counseling is a little bit like meeting a close friend for coffee (having a friendly, comforting, and great conversation) PLUS a little bit like talking to a professional who knows a lot about how people tick and how to make things better.
Here's the part that makes this different than just meeting with a friend...
We'll work together to build a new understanding about your life experience and about who you are. We all have a really difficult time understanding our own lives. Deep healing happens when we talk to someone with a compassionate and objective point of view who is rooting for you (and who knows a lot about the human experience). We'll begin to put the puzzle pieces together about things that haven't made sense before now and discover how to move forward!
