How I Can help
If you or a family member has successfully navigated the challenges of overcoming a significant life hurdle, you might find yourself pondering, "What comes next?" and "How do I move forward from here?" This is where my support can be valuable.
As a certified life coach and registered nurse specializing in addiction, I bring a unique blend of skills to guide you in exploring these questions. It involves redefining how we interact with ourselves, each other, and the world around us.
Imagine a shift where, instead of suppressing discomfort, you learn to understand it, using it as a guide to uncover your authentic self. What if your emotions (and yes even those we consider negative!) served as a pathway to self-discovery? What if meaningful changes could occur without altering external circumstances? Consider approaching life with curiosity rather than judgment.
The "OK, so what now?" phase is an opportunity to explore these questions, discover answers, and open the door to a multitude of possibilities in your life.
This guidance is relevant for anyone whose life has been shaped by past challenges.

“Coaching with Julie has been a great experience and has had a very positive impact on my life. I first decided to seek coaching because I had a lot going on in my life; a new role at work with more responsibility, a new baby at home, while trying to finish up grad school - all had me feeling quite overwhelmed. I wanted to be successful in all avenues of life while also successfully managing the stress and not having my relationships negatively impacted, but it was difficult trying to do it all on my own.
Working with Julie as my life coach has helped me navigate these challenges, helped me identify what success means to me and how to work toward achieving it. Whenever I have thoughts swirling around, without clear direction of how to move forward, I talk those through with Julie. She helps me break down anxieties and stressors, helps provide me structure and gives me confidence to move forward in a meaningful and productive way.
I also really appreciate Julie’s wide range of topics she’s willing to coach me through, whether the challenge is at work, with family or friends or with myself. Julie clearly has a lot of experience across a wide range of topics and disciplines and she approaches any subject I bring up with openness and in a judgment free, empathetic and compassionate manner.
As a result of this coaching journey, I was able to successfully navigate a very challenging, and transformative period of my life. It’s been nearly a year since I started working with Julie. From the time we started our engagement, I successfully graduated with my MBA, our daughter is about to turn one and I’m doing well in my new role at work, all while maintaining very healthy relationships with friends, family and coworkers. Although I don’t need coaching as regularly as I once did, I still find it very valuable to have regularly scheduled check-ins with Julie and can’t imagine a time when I’m not able to receive valuable life coaching from Julie. Thank you for everything Julie! Your assistance has more valuable than you can know!"
