Several years ago, I decided to get a masters degree in counseling and psychology. A former student, that spent hours in my classroom needing assistance in her life, rather than just math and sports, prompted this decision. I felt unprepared to aid this student in her life challenges and found a way to learn more. Since then, I have used these skills to support a variety of colleagues, friends and myself through life’s transitions and challenges.
And now I want to support you. Here is how I describe the work we will do together:
A coach supports a learner or client in achieving a specific personal or professional goal.
A cognitive coach helps people understand and resolve personal issues by focusing on how one thinks, with the belief that such thought processes affect the way in which we behave.
Other labels that might be familiar to you are: life coach, counselor, and/or psychologist. The goal of our work together is to establish a relationship so you can explore new ideas, gain perspective on life’s challenges and develop a positive inner voice. Through conversation, questioning and movement, I promote healthy mental, emotional and physical practices. I want to work specifically with mothers and school personnel because, in my experience as both, there is a need. Many educators and parents do not seek outside individual care because they spend most of their time devoted to others. My goal is to provide space for our most life-giving and dedicated humans to increase happiness, build self-worth and sustain a strength-oriented perception to attain life's goals.
