Endless Possibilities Life Coaching Services is now Open for Business!
So, I am now fully recovered from the flu and still keeping my mental fingers crossed that my book proposal is faring well out in California. However, those are not the only things that I’ve had going on. I have wanted to counsel and help people since I was young. I even went to college and earned my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Psychology with a plan to go on to my Doctorate and open a private practice. Then life got in the way. I got married and became pregnant at the time that I was finishing my Bachelor’s degree. Now family and motherhood was dominating my reality and taking center place. Once I became a parent, I realized working in the psychology field with children and families would be really challenging for me. I knew my personality well enough to understand that I would be bringing my work home emotionally, and I didn’t want my career to complicate things for my family. So, I found another way to work with children in the years between staying home to raise my daughter. This was a good course of action for me, and I have no regrets about the decisions I have made. Now I am the mother of a VERY busy teenage daughter, and a wife to a husband with a demanding career. That’s when I started getting restless and began to think about my goals and needs. That’s when the long forgotten plans of having a private practice in psychology came flowing back to me.
I discovered that it would cost me roughly $30,000 to obtain my Doctorate degree. A financial investment that is not in line with my reality. Plus, life experience had changed me. Although I still find value in the theories and foundational concepts of clinical psychology, they are not values that I would bring to my client sessions. The mention of life coaching had come before me, and about a year ago, I started to give this profession a second thought. Life coaching holds similar elements to clinical counseling, although there are some very real and distinct differences (which are outlined within my business website). However, the energy of the work I would be doing was essentially the same. As I began to look into the logistics and requirements for opening a life coaching practice, I decided this was the professional route for me. Well, just about one year from the day I started my life coaching certification class, I have launched my life coaching practice worldwide and officially opened for business. This is a very proud and humbling time for me. It is something I have worked really hard towards over the years, and invested a lot of energy in learning and fine-tuning. I am incredibly eager to get to work, and thankful for this opportunity.
