Couples or individuals will seek out relationship coaching for a variety of reasons. Some couples in long term partnerships have focused so deeply on career or children that they experience challenges such as loss of connection, frequent conflict, lack of sex or intimacy, or difficulties with communication. Some individuals, either single or married, want to create a fulfilling love relationship but find themselves presenting with behaviors that interfere with the experience of love and connection. Others come to coaching because they want support around dating after divorce or navigating blended families. Many couples who are in relationships after divorce find that they want to engage in personal growth so that they can avoid bringing old patterns into their new relationship. Coaching is designed for you to get very clear on goals and facilitates taking action towards creating deeper connection, effective communication, and an enhances sex life, for example. Whether you are single, married, divorced, or in a long term partnership, coaching will assist you in creating a relationship that adds to your life whether you are wanting more value, meaning, depth, fun, connection, or excitement.
I coach parents who are seeking support around separation/divorce, co-parenting, blended family challenges, parent-child conflict, and disruptive behavior in children. Parent coaching guides parents to uncover the root causes of distress and develop strategies for working through and overcoming difficulties. Parents are coached on examining their own life from a holistic lens and encouraged to make small, realistic, and healthy changes that contribute to their well-being and the health of the whole family. This aids in re-balancing the system and structure that govern and predict behaviors and patterns. Coaching sessions are designed to create a secure attachment with parent-child and partners, develop emotional regulation skills in parent and child, and inspire parents to work together as a team to create harmony. Coaching is available for parents who want one or two sessions to focus in on specific problems or for those who want to create long term change and transformation. I am well versed in Positive Discipline and John Gottman's Emotion Coaching and trained in Redirecting Children's behavior and Susie Walton's Joy of Parenting. I utilize these methodologies when coaching on children behavior challenges. However, I am happy to work with any parent no matter what their philosophy or parenting style.
Maybe you want to start eating a highly nutritious diet, exercise more, meditate daily, and sleep well. Perhaps you want limit your caffeine and alcohol intake. Or maybe you want to integrate stress reducing practices into your routine that will assist you in living a life of harmony and peacefulness. Altering habits and patterns can be difficult. Not only does it tend to be uncomfortable, but creating change can bring up emotions and memories that are difficult to sit with. Wellness coaching assists you in developing a clear plan for transformation and provides the inspiration to keep moving forward despite difficulties. This typically includes targeting one or two behaviors at a time to address. Then, we go under the behavior itself, uncover the root of what is getting in the way of you creating the life habits you desire. Through this process I support you on an emotional level. Coaching provides compassionate support, direct feedback, accountability, and a relentless belief that you can have all that you want. As a former massage therapist, with 1000 hours of training in holistic health, I utilize a whole person perspective to wellness coaching.
I coach individuals who are feeling stuck or wanting to make changes in their life within relationships, family, career, or overall health and well-being. Life Coaching is centered on partnership and collaboration around assisting the client with exploring his or her inner world, setting intentions, taking steps to achieve goals, and navigating issues around all aspects of life. This includes relationships, health and wellness, parenting, and career. Outcomes of coaching typically include higher levels of clarity, greater life satisfaction, increased progress and performance, and enhanced feelings of well-being. Life Coaching guides individuals through numerous processes designed to evoke discovery of ones self, draw out personal strengths, initiate clarity with what one whats to create, develop vision, and move into flow. These states inspire individuals to take action and launch towards hopes and dreams. Coaching is suitable for individuals who are going through transition, experiencing minor relationship difficulties, feel detached from purpose, or cannot seem to move forward. Coaching is also appropriate for individuals who are living a life of satisfaction and success but want to take themselves to the next level of performance.
