Life Coaching & Therapeutic Services 

For Individual, Couples, Family, and Groups

Here’s the tea… Sessions run about 45-50 minutes. During the first session, the intake or initial assessment may take a little longer and is like playing “20 Questions” and “What Would You Rather”. This is the time I gather information to get a snapshot of your current situation, identify objectives and goals, and determine how to best to achieve those ends.


I work with many issues which can be categorized as follows: 

Anger​

25% of Americans have a problem with anger. 


1 in 3 people say they know someone with anger management issues. 


Anger affects the cardiovascular, digestive, and immune systems. 


A​nxiety​

Anxiety Disorders are the most common  mental illness in the United States. 


30% of adults live with anxiety.  


Age 6 is the median age of onset. 


Anxiety can feel like its hard to breath, can't focus, feeling extremely tired, easily irritated, thinking irrationally, constantly worrying, hard to keep still, increased heart rate, and nausea. 

Depression 

350 Million+ people suffer from depression worldwide, rising 33% since 2013. 


63% of teens and 47% of millennials report being depressed, with women twice as likely to be diagnosed as men. 


Depression looks like indecisiveness; lack of motivation; negative view of self, the future, and the world; loss of energy, interests, or pleasure;  guilt; low self esteem, and isolation. 

Trauma

1 in 5 adults reported 3 or more childhood traumas.


55% of adults report at least one adverse childhood experience. 

"Trauma is perhaps the most avoided, ignored, belittled, denied, misunderstood, and untreated cause of human suffering." 

- Peter Levine 

Work & Career Issues

70% of people report dissatisfaction in the workplace. 


1 in 4 Americans report work is the source of anxiety and depression.


Mental Illness/Disorders

42 Million people live with mental illness. 


70% of youth in the juvenile justice systems have at least one mental health condition. 


People with severe mental illness are over 10X more likely to be victims of violent crime than the general public. 

Stress Management 

Stress is produced when we focus on any thought, perception, feeling or emotion that causes flight, fight, or freeze responses.


Unchecked and unmanaged, stress can cause headaches, irritability, anger, panic disorders, teeth grinding, jaw tensions, increased heart rate, strokes, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive issues, weight gain, obesity, decreased sex drive, muscle tension, Fibromyalgia, and sleep disturbances. 


60-80% of primary care doctor visits are related to stress. 



Relationship Conflicts 

Miscommunication, strong emotions, stereotyping, and negative behavior are typical causes of relationship conflict. 


It can cause unhappiness, fear, withdrawal, confusion, hostility, distrust, poor self esteem, negative thoughts, and loneliness. 


Family conflict can cause depression throughout life and potentially even cause early death.
