Individual Stress Reduction Coaching
If you’re feeling stressed, you’re not alone. Check out these 2018 statistics from the American Institute of Stress:
77% of people regularly experience physical symptoms caused by stress (e.g. fatigue, headache, GI upset, muscle tension, change in appetite/sex drive).
73% regularly experience psychological symptoms caused by stress (e.g. irritability, anger, anxiety, depression).
33% feel they are living with extreme stress.
48% feel their stress has increased over the past five years.
48% say stress has a negative impact on their personal and professional life.
30% say they are “often” or “always” under stress at work.
Don’t accept stress and suffering as a necessary evil.

I provide personalized life coaching for individuals searching for a drug free way to reduce stress, anxiety, depression and chronic pain utilizing the foundation attitudes of mindfulness and meditation.
For some stress can be seen in the way we eat. Losing weight isn’t just about what we eat, but why. Just like how anxiety, depression and stress can be reduced by rewiring the brain, there is also a need to rewire the brain to make lasting changes in the way we eat.
Never meditated before or think it’s not for you? Perfect! I’ll help dispel the myths and show you how to overcome the obstacles to this ancient practice, an ancient practice with the backing of 21st century technology and research.
I'll focus on your personal concerns and goals to develop a plan that can free you from the bondage of years, or most likely, decades of unhealthy habits.
Yes it will take some work, but aren't you worth it? All of the work we do together will come from a place of compassion, free of judgement.
Documented benefits of mindfulness based stress reduction include reducing stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and increasing resilience and work productivity.
The world may still be full of chaos, but you can learn how to resist being pulled into unnecessary drama, quiet your internal critic and develop a greater sense of serenity.
Making a decision to work with a coach to reduce stress or help with other life situations is not easy. But it should be. That’s why your first coaching session comes with a guarantee. If you’re not satisfied, it’s free. Simple. Easy. That’s how confident I am that you will appreciate the compassionate, nonjudgmental approach I bring to each client.
Meditation - the way into Mindfulness
I enjoy teaching people to meditate. People spend a fortune exercising their body. But what about exercising your brain?
Both are vitally important. Meditation is a 2600 year old tradition with many benefits in today's fast paced world.
I often introduce people to 21st century technology in the form of the MUSE headband.
The MUSE headband gives real-time neurofeedback on your meditation session which can greatly accelerate your practice, and the benefits. I use it myself.
No one is too old to rewire their brain. Doesn’t it make sense to invest the time, energy and care into strengthening the most important organ we own?

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Groups (MBSR)
Developed by Jon Kabbat-Zinn, MBSR is a proven group intervention to help decrease stress, anxiety, depression and chronic pain.
The course lasts 8 weeks and is usually taught in the evening. You will learn the foundation attitudes of mindfulness and how to incorporate them into your daily life. You will learn a variety of ways to meditate, and the best thing is -- no experience is necessary!
The group supports one another throughout the 8 weeks providing the encouragement to overcome obstacles that may have kept you stuck for decades. In addition I invite all MBSR participants into a close Facebook group to provide a forum for support and links to helpful videos and articles in between each class.
Fees for coaching sessions are $100.
What about insurance? Insurance companies do not pay for stress reduction or mindfulness related coaching. They are about 2600 years behind the times. Having insurance companies to pay for services would require giving you a diagnosis that follow you for life. Helping someone reduce stress or teach meditation adds a richness to ones life that does not require you being labeled as “sick” in some way.
A cash only practice keeps the insurance company out of the coaching sessions. That means that my coaching clients don’t have to fear their insurance company reading about their diagnosis, session notes and progress. Therefore only myself and individuals you specifically designate will have access to your most personal information.
