Coaching might be a good fit if you are struggling with any of these things:

  • Worries that overwhelm and keep you stuck

  • You want to make a change in your life but not sure how to get there

  • You want more consistent peace and purpose 

  • You have a pattern of negative thought cycles that are based on false beliefs

  • Fears that keep you from trusting God consistently

  • Thoughts that seem to take over and keep you from engaging in the moment with family and friends 

  • Feeling confused about how to incorporate your faith in God as you work on your mental health

  • Overwhelm with parenting, homeschool and relationships. 

  • A desire to live with more purpose but not sure where to start

I'm happy to answer questions about my coaching services.
I'll be adding an FAQ section here soon.

Coaching vs. Counseling

Even though I was a licensed counselor, I no longer offer counseling services but can work with you as a coach. This means I do not diagnose or work with those facing severe symptoms that need professional help. I do coach those who want help reaching goals, learning new skills to find consistent freedom, assistance developing a plan to consistently manage symptoms, learn ways to transform your mind and apply effective strategies to help you thrive.
You may want to work on a specific area of your life like work, relationships or personal development. You may have had counseling in the past, or just struggle with a lot of fear or worry and are looking for someone to come along side you on your journey. I can also help you navigate a care plan and know when to seek outside help to support your body and mind. 
Please let me know if you have any questions.

*All my sessions are currently conducted via zoom or phone call (whichever you prefer).

I offer individual sessions and coaching packages.
