Dr. Elyssa has taken her years of experience in the mental health field and expanded her services to providing life-coaching services to individuals all over the nation.

Why Do you Need Life Coaching?

There are many reasons and motivations for working with Dr. Elyssa as your life coach. Dr. Elyssa commonly works with individuals who are experiencing depression, anxiety, low self-esteem or self-worth, or who are simply wanting to make changes in their life. It is incredibly normal and common to experience challenges in life, and to need or desire the support of a trained professional to help you through such times.

Perhaps you are going through a major life transition (marriage, divorce, relationship ending, death, long-distance move, career change, retirement, birth of children, empty nesting, etc.) and are feeling stressed or having an emotional response. A life coach provides you with a non-judgmental and neutral third-party where you are able to share your thoughts, emotions, and experiences and truly be heard.

You may be at a point in your personal or professional life where you are ready for something more or something different. Perhaps you are seeking a raise but are having anxiety or you are unsure of how to approach your boss. Maybe you are considering leaving your current job and changing career paths. Dr. Elyssa can guide you through this process, teach you proven methods to reduce your anxiety, and help you build the confidence you need to take this next step.

Maybe you have this gut instinct that you are on the brink of something profound, some “next-step” in your life, but you are unsure of steps to take or what your inner desire really is. Dr. Elyssa can work with you to uncover your dreams, goals, and help you create a manageable plan to reaching your goals.

What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is about you living life to the fullest and guiding you to achieving your most important goals. Ultimately, life coaching is about giving you the life you want.

Life coaching is the process of receiving assistance from a trained professional who can help you accomplish your personal or professional goals, meet a new milestone, make an important change in your life, overcome a fear by taking action, and learn and refine coping skills.

Life coaching is similar to therapy in that Dr. Elyssa can provide you with support, enhanced coping strategies for stressful problems, and teach you problem-solving skills. However, it is different in that you are completely guiding the process and Dr. Elyssa simply serves as a source of strength, motivation, inspiration, and strategy.

Whether you are seeking life coaching in an effort to work towards self-actualization or dealing with a challenging time in your life, Dr. Elyssa has the education, training, and practical experience to help you.  Making the choice to engage in life coaching means you are ready for a better you, for living the life you really want, and that you are committed to change by seeking assistance.
