First of all, I wish to welcome all of our new subscribers – I am truly thrilled that a few of the articles I have written since starting the ChainFree Living blog this year have been shared around the world and even translated into other languages. For those of you who are not that familiar with me or my background, I’m a Therapeutic Life Coach™, Organizational Consultant, Licensed Psychotherapist, Educator, and Author who is genuinely passionate about helping people become who and what they most truly are so that they may live in an uninhibited, creative, expansive, and ‘chain-free’ manner.
I haven’t been able to write for the past few weeks as I’ve been dealing with a health issue – now nearly resolved, with the help of a fantastic, caring doctor I found. This experience reminded me how important it is to advocate for our own health when navigating through mainstream medical systems; I’ll be writing about this in detail in a future post. During my absence from this blog I put the finishing touches on a new model of life coaching I recently developed, and I am excited to share a bit about it with my readers here. I plan on designing and offering a certification program for licensed mental health professionals and certified life coaches that will be based on my unique transformational life coaching approach, which I call ‘Therapeutic Life Coaching’.
Therapeutic Life Coaching: A Comprehensive Approach To Transformation
It would be a wonderful thing if each of us were embraced, respected, and accepted as our true, authentic selves, as well as supported in growing to our highest potential, from the moment we entered the world. However, for some people this simply was not the case. Although traditional ‘success’ and future-oriented life coaching models can provide support, guidance, encouragement, and acceptance for those who are most in need of it so that they may change and progress, it often fails to address the past and ways of being and behaving that no longer serve them and keep them stuck in unhealthy, dysfunctional patterns. I therefore developed the Therapeutic Life Coaching™ model in order to better assist my coaching clients in their efforts to transform and evolve beyond old identities and limiting relational and social roles so that they may create the dynamic, fulfilling life they envision.
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.” –Martha Graham
Unlike traditional future-oriented life coaching methods, the therapeutic life coaching processes I invite my clients to participate in go beyond motivational concepts and the achievement of personal / professional goals by exploring ways in which their life force, i.e., their true-self nature, has become ‘stuck’ or ‘blocked’ in reaction to people, places, things, and events encountered in their past. In addition, my Therapeutic Life Coaching model allows for the deepest possible transformation by inviting clients to expand beyond limiting ideas they may hold about themselves based on prior experiences and other people’s perceptions of them. For clients in my coaching practice, ‘success’ is redefined as a complete shedding of all that feels false and/or no longer serves them as they experience, embrace, and embody their innate wholeness, a wholeness rooted in their true identity via a direct knowledge of Self.
Lastly: I’m Finally Writing ‘That Book’!
I’m also excited to share that I have began writing ‘that book’ that I have been dreaming of writing about for years. I’ll be blogging more about this soon, but in the meantime, feel free to visit http://

The unique, individualized Therapeutic Life Coaching™ and Consulting services I provide are specifically designed to support people in achieving their goals, realizing their dreams, and confidently standing in their truth, fueled by wisdom, emotional acceptance, and relational awareness. I especially enjoy working with creative, emotionally aware, highly sensitive people who may be waking up to the fact that they have been living a life based on other people’s needs, wants, and expectations and are ready to dig deep within themselves so as to connect with their fundamental essence. Also, people who feel ready to release anything and everything about themselves that feels false and no longer serves them at the highest level so that they might begin an inner journey to learn more about themselves and their purpose in life. Also, people who are feeling ‘stuck’ in life, or that their true self is ‘blocked’ or ‘hidden’ and they’d like some help in moving through these perceived obstacles.
