Why Do I Specialize in Working with Young Adults?
While I’m certain I can help most anyone experiencing overwhelm and difficulty prioritizing and actualizing their goals, I’ve discovered that I do my best work with young adults who embody the following characteristics:
As a coach, I primarily focus on showing young adults who are feeling somewhat stuck in delayed adolescence, they are the type of people who are ready to bloom but facing a wall of criticism, doubt, shame for disappointing someone they love, fear of inadequacy to “adult” and shame of wasting so much time and maybe money stuck pursuing something or someone they don’t even want or thing is good for them.
When I’m not coaching young women, I also see patients in my clinical therapy practice, where I specialize in helping young women and their mothers recovery from trauma, childhood abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence all play a toll in creating limiting beliefs. As a trauma coach I help change limiting beliefs to sky is the limit belief.
But for the most part those who benefit the most from what I have to offer are:
Proactive – My best clients don’t want to sit in a therapist’s office for years rehashing the past. They want to figure out how they got into their unique situation, and what they can do about it.
Open-Minded – My best clients enjoy learning new things and come to their sessions with an open, interested mind and a willingness to get to the heart of the matter.
Ready and Able – My best clients are generally healthy people and prefer to resolve their situation consciously and without quick fix gimmicks, pills and prescriptions.
High-Performers – My best clients are self-motivated and are used to accomplishing what they set out to do.
Personal Developers – My best clients have a deep desire to understand what drives them and to explore how to become the best version of themselves. They understand that the new recipe for success requires becoming increasingly aware, paying attention to life’s messages, and they strive to live consciously.
While I’ve helped many people overcome a variety of obstacles that is inevitable in life, I have found I do my best work with clients who have the following characteristics…

My best clients appreciate the integration of a coaching and clinical background. My coaching clients feel safe as they transition out of therapy and into ongoing support of a group of life learner and my therapy patients love knowing what’s ahead for them as they complete their therapeutic work and move into coaching?
