Jumpstarting a New Habit and Kicking Your Unhealhty Thoughts

Before I began my book writing project, I knew I needed a new mindset to deal with the anxiety, beat the first- time author fears, and balance other changes.  Receiving honest feedback about my new work helped me overcome the publishing challenges, stop overthinking, evolve as a professional, and unlock my creativity and true potential. A coach helped me actually do it, and this dramatically changed my well-being and career.

So, if you’re feeling alone and seeking to reignite the creative part of you but feeling stuck, you’re not alone.  I’ve been there. Not sure what your next big idea looks like? Are you tired of the fatigue that accompanies nearly every task? Are you overstressed with your daily routine and lacking confidence to pursue your passion?

Making a healthy change is a start, and coaching can help you kick  your unpleasant habits and thoughts to the curb. Coaching is also a powerful way to transform your performance and breakthrough blocks. 

Here are some of the common themes I coach:

Focusing on a new career path

Adding new work to your life

Becoming a first- time author

Learning to share your message and becoming a better promoter of your work

Breaking unhealhty patterns surrounding grief/ loss

Regainig momentum on a project

Helping you tap into your creative mind

Tips for Managing Overwhelm & Maintaining Well-Being During COVID-19

IMG_20200322_091539_527 (1)

Dear Ones,

Thank you for taking time to join me here on my page.

As you know, emotional well-being is critical during this time. As such, I’m focusing my work on sharing ways to help you manage the overwhelm and providing you healthy ways to maintain your emotional well- being.

Last week, my heart skipped a few beats when I received a message from Maria Shriver. She requested that I write a piece for her “Sunday Paper”. My piece  “8 Ways to Help You Maintain Emotional Well-Being”  is live today.  It is an honor I’m beyond grateful for.

I was given the privilege to be a guest on CNN’s New Day with Alisyn Camerota. I shared some ways to manage COVID-19 anxiety. This interview is based on my Medium piece I wrote for Katie Couric’s daily newsletter “Wake- Up Call”.

I hope that you’ll find these pieces helpful for you in managing your stress during this unprecedented times. If you find your fears are disabling and preventing you from working or being able to keep up with your daily responsibilities, you should contact your doctor immediately. They may recommend you seek professional therapy. Many mental health professionals, like myself, do work remotely, so you won’t need to worry about a commute. Seeking help is not a sign of weakness. It can help you discern what actions and next steps are healthy for you.
