Who I am:

  • I am the middle child of 5 girls

  • Growing up, I was raised on a farm, participated in athletics year round and played trombone

  • I lived to the age of 25 years old being someone I thought I needed to be vs who I really am

  • I love the outdoors: hiking, swimming, kayaking. When I am not outdoors, you’ll find me reading, writing, practicing yoga/meditation or cooking

  • I want to travel more – not so much as a hobby but as an experience

My three truths:

  • Perfectionism creates procrastination and encourages self-destruction, sabotage and depression

  • Selfless syndrome and silent expectations create undisclosed stress and anxiety

  • In order to experience fulfillment (personal and professional), the secret is to BE more and DO less

Coach vs Therapist

Coach: a professional who obtains certifications through an accredited program like International Coaching Federation, no degree requirements, clarifies goals and identifies obstacles and problematic behaviors in order to create action plans to achieve desired results. The process of life coaching takes the client’s current starting point as an acceptable neutral ground and is more action based from that point forward.  A life coach enables the person receiving treatment to take control of their life and take action to steer it towards their goals. The focus is on the present with outcomes that bring them success and fulfillment, in any and all areas of life.

Therapist: a professional classified as a psychologist or counselor, have varying master’s and doctorate degrees and are licensed by their state. A therapist diagnoses and resolves problematic beliefs, behaviors, relationship issues, feeling and sometime physical response. The idea behind therapy is to focus on past traumas and issues to change self-destructive habits, repair and improve relationships and work through painful feelings. The focus is on the past with the hope of resolving past issues and creating a happier, more stable future.
