As a former psychiatric nurse who worked with patients with depression, anxiety. and eating disorders, I know that the symptoms are just on the surface. What you see on the outside is a cover for what is going on in the mind. As a life coach I feel I am better able to help you navigate not only what the symptoms are, but also what is driving them.
If you are feeling like you have lost who you are or your sense of self, I can help you sort through your situation and come up with a strategy to be the person you would like to be.
There will be a time for all of us when our confidence is shaken, our motivation suffers and we need to take a step back to reassess what we are looking to achieve. It may be a life change, end of college, new career, new relationship, end of relationship, children leaving the house, or, for no apparent reason at all. As a life coach it is my goal to help you to identify and isolate what you are looking to change and then help you to come up with a realistic plan to facilitate these changes.
I love working with people of all ages who wish to make changes for a healthier lifestyle and need support setting goals for exercise and nutrition. if you are accountable to a coach, you will be more inclined to stick to the goals you have set.
I have a BSN from Johns Hopkins University and a background in psychiatric nursing where I worked with patients with depression, mood disorders, anxiety, and eating disorders.
I am a certified professional life coach and enjoy working with clients who are looking to make life changes; college age adults who want to improve their college experience through lifestyle, social or schedule changes, and adults age 40 plus who are looking to make some personal life changes.
As a coach I believe in the importance of dialogue. I listen to what you say and help you with a positive approach to meet your goals.
Identify. Plan. Execute. Together we can accomplish whatever your personal goals may be.
In this age of instant gratification I believe that we often cheat ourselves from achieving our full potential. If you feel anxious, you are prescribed a pill, if you have reoccurring headaches you get another pill, if you are overweight you can have a procedure done to eliminate fat, etc.. But, with this superficial approach, you are not stopping to ask yourself, "why is this happening?," "what can I change in my life to help alleviate the problem?" I firmly believe in the whole person and that this whole person deserves the time and attention to know they can have control through behavior modification to lead a full and healthy life.
The first visit usually consists of my asking lots of questions and listening to what the client has to say. Often clients will describe the first visit as mentally draining as they are giving lots of thoughtful information. They will leave the session with a plan and 2 or 3 short term goals to complete before our next session.
