I recently retired my private therapy practice in order to focus completely on supporting individuals throughout the world (we can meet in person or confidentially online) craving deeper self knowledge and relationship joy before they are in crisis. Coaching this way provides you with a meaningful and practical skill set that you need to communicate more clearly, feel more competent and calm, and walk through the world feeling more present.
My education, training, and clinical experience have added to both my competence and confidence in effectively coaching people through eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and more general disordered eating), depression, anxiety, relationship drama, sexual violence, and various forms of trauma throughout the lifespan. Again, coaching is not therapy and while there is overlap in that they both aim to create lasting life changes and overall wellness, there are times when coaching is not appropriate. For example, if you have an acute mental health condition that is in need of assessment and structured treatment, a licensed mental health therapist is a more appropriate support than a coach–in these cases, I will refer you to trusted and vetted colleagues.
I am happy to tell you more about the extent of my training in these areas and others. As part of my commitment to my clients success and my personal desire for growth, I continue to seek education and creativity. I’m currently invested in deepening my knowledge of and commitment to trauma-sensitive and social-justice oriented care.
