Frequently Asked Questions
What do you mean by “healing?”
Healing, in my context, refers to achieving a sense of wholeness, balance, peacefulness, and empowerment. It’s about liberating yourself from negative thoughts rooted in past and present trauma.
How is Life Coaching different from therapy?
Life coaching primarily differs from therapy in terms of education and licensure. As a life coach, I focus more on goal setting and future-focused personal growth, while therapists often deal with mental health issues.
Why are you a Life Coach instead of a licensed therapist?
My journey towards helping others began later in life and it started with life coaching, a profession I’ve fallen in love with. Currently, I’m pursuing a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling to further broaden my capacity to support my clients.
Do you observe the ACA (American Counseling Association) code of ethics?
Absolutely. As a counselor-in-training, the ACA Code of Ethics is my guide for professional and ethical client interactions. I also observe the ICF (International Coaching Federation) Code of Ethics.

It is a technique that takes you back to a past traumatic event as a way to reframe and release negative emotions associated with that event.
What is an Akashic Reading?
It is a deeply intuitive story we create together in session that can provide a powerful framework for the life that you want to live. The “Akashic Record” is one of many traditional descriptions for the idea that the eternal intelligence of all living things is accessible through open-hearted imaginative exploration of mind.
Can you help me with my anxiety and depression?
Yes. Techniques like Timeline Therapy™ can be especially helpful to identify and release past traumas that contribute to anxiety and depression.
Can you help me overcome addictions?
Depending on the severity of the addiction, I can use tools like hypnosis and guided meditations to assist in overcoming addiction.
Do you work with couples on conflict resolution?
Yes, I have experience working with couples and can provide valuable guidance on conflict resolution.
You say that you help clients find peaceful balance between heart and mind – and you do it with warmth, humor, playfulness, and creativity. How can “warmth, humor, playfulness and creativity” fix my problems?
I believe humor, warmth, playfulness, and creativity are powerful tools for self-reflection. They allow us to see things from a different perspective, reduce stress, and bring joy to the process. By infusing these elements into our sessions, we can tackle challenges in a balanced, uplifting, and healing way.
As a Holistic Life Coach, I take the approach that all things are connected, but many of those connections can be very difficult to see. In my work with clients, I focus on three main areas: Awareness, Acceptance, Integration.
