It was 1999. I was in Austin for my first EMDR Basic Training. Without thinking my hand flew up when the trainer (Andrew Leeds?) asked for a volunteer the first day. That one session with a follow up the next day changed my life.
Up until that weekend flying had generated deep fear and severe somatic experiences. But after the two EMDR sessions, fear dissipated. I walked away with the Positive Cognition What a beautiful day to fly and a body that was ready to fly!
As a psychotherapist my specialty became EMDR with trauma as the focus. As an EMDRIA Approved Consultant I traveled around the world working with clients. It always seemed a beautiful day to fly!
One Christmas Eve night as I came back from the Psych Unit after seeing clients for the third time and my Mom asked, “Is this truly the life you want to live?” I realized, it wasn’t.
I left my well established psychotherapy practice of 20+ years to become a full time credentialed coach. I have never looked back.
Six years ago I created The Mindfulness Coaching School for professionals who are ready to make a change in their careers and lifestyles. The School is fully accredited through the International Coach Federation.
