Therapeutic Coach; I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Missouri, USA, a certified coach CPC, ELI-MP, and a founder of Begin Again Consciously. Armed with 17+years of mental health experience as a therapist, specializing in CBT ( Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), ELI- Energy Leadership Coaching certification from iPec, and moved into Therapeutic Transitional Coach.
Blending the best of both disciplines—therapy and coaching—I have created a robust methodology, built on evidence-based protocols that I developed specifically to meet the unique needs of each individual who is about to enter or is going through emotionally charged transitions and transformation in their lives.
Life transitions are the new beginning; unfortunately, past experiences, insecurities, trauma, and grief can influence the present behavior & actions. Making life transitions emotionally exhausting while getting the same results exacerbating feelings of stuck-ness in the rut. If you are tired of starting over and want to learn Why, When, & How you self-sabotage your success & relationships, If you want to gain mastery over your emotions, have clarity, focus, and commitment to your life goals. Grow personally/professionally, feel more in control, and less stressed than I am the therapeutic coach you need.
My services and expertise include Depression, Anxiety, Trauma I Relational Issues, Codependency, Imposter syndrome, Low self-esteem, Career, Adulting, Personal Development & Coaching. For anyone who is feeling overwhelmed, stuck, lost, or lacking purpose & direction in their lives, I first help you heal & recover, and then coach you to create a new life.
Our Sessions will provide a safe place to be vulnerable, discover your strength, and move forward with clarity, confidence, and freedom. I Focus on Mind, Body & Environmental transformation. Our sessions may include the use of EMDR, CBT, DBT, Family Systems Therapy, Gottman Therapy, Positive Parenting, Narrative Therapy, and Life Coaching skills as needed.
My vision is to re-humanize ourselves, holistically— as individuals, professionals, and in relationships. I focus on uncovering unconscious patterns and overcoming habits that hold you from attaining true success. I explore and dig deeper into your belief system, internal language, neuron pathways, and reactive behaviors to establish new ways of being— that will raise self-awareness, activate emotional intelligence, increase confidence, and enhance relationships to lead an aligned life.
