What differentiates me from other coaches and therapists is that I focus on helping people find their true selves by focusing on feeling better moment by moment. I help individuals make changes first on the inside and then as they are feeling better they make changes on the outside. As a result things start lining up better for them.
I have found that when changes are made on the inside first and then outside second:
- People feel better more quickly
- Things go better sooner
- There is a sense of ease about things instead of things being heavy or difficult.
- People feel lighter
- People begin to like their lives.
If you are interested in finding out more about this inside first, outside second approach contact me directly via phone or TEXT at 815-935-5053 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Much of my life I have had a misunderstanding of the role of negative emotions. Whenever I felt sad or worried or frustrated I believed these emotions meant something about something-- so I often became introspective looking into them for some kind of truth about situations, or about me, or about others, or about life in general.
Now I have come to believe that when I have negative emotions it is usually a sign that my mind is misreading something. I either do not fully understand what I am trying to process or I have a limited perspective on something.
Now my primary interest is mitigating any negative emotion when it arises. When I am able to do this I feel happier, more hopeful, and have a sense of lightness and ease with things and with other people. I'm not always where I would like to be but I now know where I am wanting to head. Come join me in your version of this endeavor!!!
