Resilience Development for Athletes and Non-Athletes
Resilience Development Coaching aims tohelp you achieve your optimal health, wellness, and performance. Chase your peak performance goals or mitigate symptoms of current illness, minimize your exposure to unchecked stressors, and/or reduce the risk of succumbing to over-training.
This coachingprogram is grounded in evidence-based research but personalized to you, based upon your needs, abilities, and values.
Brief, Solution-Focused Approach (plan for 1-6 sessions depending upon your needs). Through one-on-one or group-based resilience development coaching use proven habit formation techniques. You will be coached through your obstacles with personalized solutions.I assist with realistic goal-setting, help identify effective tools for tracking and managing health- and wellness- related data, and teach you how to build an effective, measurable, and personalized achievable action plans. I provide support, guidance, accountability, and opportunity for solution-focused discussion along the way as you implement your action plan within a clearly identified time-frame.
The Pillars of health and wellness that impact resilience the most include: 1. Exercise 2. Nutrition 3. Sleep/Recovery 4. Stress Management 5. Physical Health Challenges 6. Self-Care/Leisure 7. Relationships with Others 8. Sense of Accomplishment/Purpose 9. Financial Health 10. Relationship to the Environment (both inside and outside the home).
Resilience Development is NOT Treatment. Resilience Development coaching does NOT replace medical care. However, Resilience Development is personalized preventative care. This coaching program can help healthy individuals identify and change maladaptive patterns of behavior that can lead to compromised health and potential illness. This program can improve your quality of life if you are currently in treatment for a medical issue. _______________________
Why work with me. My Education and Experience: I have dedicated decades of my life to high-quality accredited university level education in various health, wellness, and counseling fields. I have applied my hard-earned knowledge in the real world to help real people manage and resolve very serious problems. I enjoy helping others find their best selves and resolution to the distressful problems that hold them back from enjoying life to the fullest.
To that end, I have earned: MS in Kinesiology (study of human movement), with a dual concentration in sports performance and sports psychology. This exercise science graduate program was heavily research-based. It provided access to the most up-to-date evidence-based practice in areas of exercise and mental skills training for improved performance.
MA in Creative Arts Psychotherapy and hold a Board-Certification as an Art Therapist (ATR-BC). I earned an EdS (Education Specialist) degree in Marriage and Family Therapy/Systems Therapy. I currently work as a psychotherapist (part-time) on an inpatient, acute, psychiatric stabilization and rehabilitation unit. There I create solution-focused creative therapy groups to help adults suffering from the most severe forms of mental illness understand themselves and their needs better to regain control of their ability to function.
