National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach
I'm a health and wellness coach who helps people live happier healthier lives by connecting their heart to their health.
My heart hurts when I see people struggle with stress and anxiety due to life circumstances. Whether dealing with a new diagnosis of cancer, ongoing chronic illness, dissatisfaction at work, or social anxiety, I help people feel better. Working with me clients gain insight and perspective into how they are experiencing in the body, heart and mind. They learn that feelings and fears are normal and once allowed to surface, can be acknowledged, honored and released. Through time clients gain access to their personal strength that guides them to make the changes needed to live happier, healthier lives. One client summed it up perfectly when she said, “Amy doesn’t guide you, she gives you the tools and skills to guide yourself.”
I am inspired by the human spirit to meet difficult challenges. And I also see the way that fear, stress, and anxiety can take over and cloud peoples access to this power and strength. This calls me to ask good questions, reflect back to them the strength I see and encourage them to engage more fully with their precious human life. When they do, magic happens! They learn that their life, hopes and dreams are important and matter completely.
I feel better already! I learned something new in this visit that helps me know I have inner strength to take the next steps. I have a guide to walk with me, I don't have to do this on my own, I can ask for support and receive it. Growing self-awareness needs a partner, and I feel safe with Amy.
Coaching is like exploring a river, and the river is you and your life.
In the beginning you might be gently paddling along a slow-moving current, hang out in an eddy for a while, learn a few things about how you adapt or avoid, what you could do better, or what you could let go of. And you could end up in some rapids seeing the ways you flail and struggle making things harder than they need to be. And with support you tap into the mysterious inner strength and wisdom that leads you through to the other side.
In the end you, the client, chooses what specific action steps you will take to navigate the river of your life, with the intention to find more ease, clarity and strength.
This exploration could be about anything. Your body/mind system is interconnected, so how you think and feel about health, illness, anxiety, stress, relationships, work and your sense of self is open for discussion and exploration. Along the way I am right there with you asking questions that open up insight, reflecting back your strengths and challenging you to take that next scary step so you are embodied and alive in your precious human life, making the changes you desire.
