After years working in hospitals, group trauma practices and my own office as a therapist and a Parent Coach, I’ve seen that traditional methods of psychotherapy and counseling often fall short for people looking to feel better fast. Also, sometimes targeted coaching doesn’t encompass all the areas a person needs to address in order to truly heal and create lasting change.
I wish I had a magic wand that I could wave to take everyone’s troubles away, or a quick 5 step bulleted list to make everything change. I’m afraid not only do I not possess either, they actually might not exist at all.
What I have instead is a system I’ve developed over the years that has helped people move through hard times (grief, trauma, and life changes) with far less struggle and pain than they would experience in traditional talk therapy, six months of coaching, or simply trying to do it on their own.
I provide a non-judgement safe space where you will be heard and can find the solutions you’re seeking. My background in holistic health coaching, yoga & meditation, psychology and trauma therapy has helped me to develop tangible tools that can help you right now and help you build a foundation for lasting relief.
The only thing constant in life is change. As we move through life’s stages, we’re always reinventing ourselves. Wouldn’t it be nice to experience these reinventions in a way that feels peaceful and easy? That’s what the You Reinvented is all about.
You Reinvented is a combination of what clients have experienced in my therapy practice and working with me as a parenting coach. Together, in the 12 week program, we will reinvent, with the curiosity and awe that makes a WONDERful life
We’ll start here as you approach yourself with the curiosity and compassion that will help you figure out exactly who you are, why you do what you do, and feel how you feel.
Awareness allows us to see hope for the future and opens us up to the potential for change that feels good. Awareness is the first step but it can’t be the only step. We are more than just our thoughts. Knowing isn’t enough to create change that sticks.
Awareness brings a shift to mindful behaviors. Learn how to spot triggers, reactions, habits and compulsions that keep you from living a more peaceful and aligned life. Notice how you show up daily and accept yourself with compassion.
Clarity and self-compassion mean openness to lasting change and relief. Once you’ve identified triggers, reactions, habits or compulsions, you are ready to manage your now and your future. Implement mind-body tools of self-care and incorporate boundaries as you begin to cultivate the elements to design your reinvention.
You’ve learned who you are, how you work, and most importantly what you need and how to get it. You can manage the hills and valleys as they come and even see the beauty of each. You choose where your life goes next because you have embraced the idea that you have all that you need inside of you. It is time for you to create the life you love and love the life you’ve already created.
Healing is the ribbon that runs throughout. Healing is more than just “giving it time”. YOU Reinvented healing is active and participatory. Starting at our first meeting we’ll implement tools that help heal from past, and current struggles, and traumas big and small. You’ll move from being defined by the elements of your story to being the person who owns your story and is able to tell it free from judgment and pain.
We’ll draw on breathwork, yoga, meditation, traditional therapy principles, journaling and a variety of other mind-body tools that fit your personal needs.
If you’re interested in feeling better now and dealing better in the future, set up a free 15 minute “good fit” call to get started soon.
