Why Academic Life Coaching?
As a child, I grew up with one parent in prison and the other struggling with alcohol addiction. By the time I reached adolescence, the emotional pain had become so unbearable that I ended up turning to alcohol and drug use in order to cope with my depression. The work that I did on myself and the help that I received during those dark moments is the reason I am here today. Too often, we think there is no choice and that there is no way things can get better. I strongly believe that every single person (no matter what their past experiences may be) is capable of overcoming self-defeating behavior, cultivating self-acceptance and leading a meaningful life. Our past does not have to direct our future and coaching can help us take active steps toward the life we want.
What is great about Portland, OR?
I love Portland because creativity and originality is acknowledged and embraced. There is so much natural beauty in the Pacific North West. We have the ocean, beautiful trees and gorgeous mountains.
