Coaching is education, encouragement, and expectation that enables you to achieve your goals. Coaching can help you address the subpar or unfulfilled aspects of your life. Do not let "one of these days" end up being "none of these days." Time to make a change and coaching can help.
Coaching with Amanda is a direct, one-on-one, tailored experience with a professional who is trained in evidenced based motivation and relationship skills. Together you and Amanda will identify you-specific steps to take toward improvement. You will work to establish habits and automatic responses that make it faster and easier to move you and/or your relationships closer to success. Stop the sabotage or stagnation. Amanda can coach you to efficiently improve your connections and motivation.
Coaching is not therapy. Therapy addresses a mental health diagnosis such as anxiety or depression. Some coaching techniques are therapeutic, but the goal of coaching is not to treat a mental health disorder. As you achieve your coaching goals you may find your mental health challenge is alleviated. Behavioral science shows solving your problems can reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. Coaching can help solve your problems.
Amanda has extensive professional and personal skill at self-mastery. Widowed in 2006, Amanda sold her home in Los Angeles and moved with her two young daughters to Williamsburg, Virginia.
