What Happens When You’re Tired Of Toughing It Out?

After working with me, my clients are anxiety-free, have no worries, and feel absolutely confident and in control 100% of the time.

Not exactly. (I wish, though!)

But even if my clients still have anxiety, they now have strategies for dealing with it.

You know why? Because it isn’t a dirty little secret anymore. They know how to deal with it more directly so it doesn’t have a drastic effect on their lives like is used to. They can recognize when their coping skills are running the show (e.g. perfectionism, people-pleasing, hustling) and make the necessary shifts to get out of ‘white-knuckling’ mode.

The biggest change is that they feel more confident and in control. They aren’t looking outside of themselves for input all of the time or comparing their lives to others.

They have learned to:

  • embrace their messy, imperfect, unique lives and ride the waves rather than holding on for dear life.
  • be heard and respected for who they are.
  • stop doubting themselves constantly.
  • not live in fear of their feelings or of people finding out they don’t always have it all together.
  • feel confident in their lives and not like they need to tough it out all of the time.

For so long you have hustled.

“Fake it until you make it” is a daily mantra for you.

Soldiering on is a way of life.

Those coping skills have helped you survive. And now they just aren’t working anymore. It is time to get honest with yourself. Show up for yourself. Allow yourself to really see yourself.

Put down the hustle and the coping skills and face what is really there in all of life’s messiness.

I swear, it’s not as scary as it sounds. We have just been taught that we are scary and need to protect the world from our needs, feelings, and desires. It is time to be loyal to you, to take off the mask, face your anxiety, and become confident in who you are.

Live your life with more ease and less overwhelm and anxiety.

Learn how to handle a Monger attack.

Recognize when anxiety has taken over the driver’s seat and you will be more in control of everyday life decisions.

Let’s figure it out together.


Introducing Coach in Your Pocket

Imagine being able to reach a trusted, knowledgable expert in High Functioning Anxiety at any time of day, 24/7. Imagine not having to wait until your scheduled session to vent, ask questions, get clarification, and celebrate victories. That is how Coach In Your Pocket works.

You can reach out to me anytime, 24/7, via the Voxer app and I will respond during my office hours, Monday through Friday from 9am-6pm. This type of work is a game changer. Clients progress so much faster with this instant access. I will never go back to working with clients in one-hour sessions every other week.

Why is Coach in Your Pocket so effective?

Instant access. People with High Functioning Anxiety often struggle with sharing their doubts, insecurities, and real feelings. So when we use the traditional model of weekly or bi-weekly sessions, a whole session can be wasted because you happen to be having a good day. Why? Because if you are feeling good that week, you may not want to go back to a time when you weren’t (even if it was just the day before).

With CIP you can reach out to me any time you are struggling or having an anxiety attack; it doesn’t have to fit into a certain schedule.

It is easier to share. No matter how kind, empathetic, and laid back I am, there is something intimidating about coming into the office and sitting down across from a coach. With CIP you are simply talking into your phone and leaving a message for me — so you can collect your thoughts, ramble on, or get in touch multiple times a day. So much more freedom.

Time. Let’s face it: time is a major factor. You might REALLY want to do coaching to help your High Functioning Anxiety but who has time to meet every other week? And it is true, the more we meet, the faster you develop strategies and methods to cope with your anxiety. Voxer allows you to chat any time. No scheduling, no babysitting, no explaining to your boss that you have to leave early. Nope, this is literally in your pocket.

How it works

Working with me is not your typical one-on-one session where you come to my office each week, we talk, and you go home. And then the next week we sit and talk and you go home, rinse and repeat ad nauseam. In fact, we don’t work that way at all.


Ready to get started?

I am so glad you asked. It is so simple.

Step One: Send me an email or visit my contact page to set up a free 30-minute session to see if we would be a good fit.

Step Two: Schedule your first session: The first session is a 90-minute session. This can be done in my office in Columbus, Ohio, or via secure video chat. It gives us time to deep dive into your stories. In this session, we can start to determine where your Monger is holding you back and where you are repeatedly getting stuck.

Step Three: Continue our work via the Voxer app.

Investment:

Standard Package:
$375/month or $1,000/3 month: Includes one 90-minute session via video chat and unlimited Voxes.

Appointment Package:
$500/month or $1,125/3 months: Includes standard package + one 60-minute session a month via video chat.

This is more than just coaching. It’s life strategy.

This is more than just getting to the root and naming your triggers. This is about recognizing a trigger and knowing what to do about it once you see it.

This isn’t fluff. This is looking at yourself and your life differently.

It might get uncomfortable and it might be hard — and it will be so worth it.

We can’t get off the hamster wheel without a little introspection. You have to be prepared to transform your life. I keep my client load small so I can work closely with each of my clients and dive deep.

You’re a good fit if…

  • You are done trying to protect everyone from your anxiety and are ready to show up anxiety and all.
  • You are tired of the quick fixes. Think positive and be grateful are wonderful but they aren’t cutting it anymore.
  • Your old coping mechanisms (perfectionism, people-pleasing, and soldiering on) aren’t working anymore and you keep getting stuck in your old default patterns (over-indulging, beating yourself up, feeling out of control).
  • You suspect that there is something more and something deeper required to make your life work, but you just aren’t sure what it looks like yet.

This is not for you if…

  • You want a quick fix. My philosophy is all about making slow, gradual changes that last.
  • You only want to do the work while in session. The key to this work is practicing it in the real world. If you aren’t willing to practice it, change won’t happen.
