Over my years on this planet and through my professional work life - no matter if we are standing on the mountain top with our arms raised high, or at the depths of a dark valley - most everyone wonders “If they are enough”. Am I doing enough? Am I being enough? Am I enough?
“Let me tell you ... You are enough. I have stood on the mountain tops, I have walked and crawled through the dark valleys. I understand personally in my own unique way, and I am available to help you through a professional working relationship. What I want you to know is this ... You have everything you need already inside of you to create a life of happiness, joy and success. I will partner with you to support and help you discover this truth and begin to live it fully in your life.” - Joseph Gandolfo

Life Coaching for Adults
The Life Coaching process addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in the client's personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be.
If you are reading this, you most likely want to change something about your life. Let’s face it; life is a constant juggling act. Between your family, your work and your social life, you might feel like you’re being pulled in more directions than you can possibly go.
As a result, you can become so paralyzed by responsibilities and other ‘to-dos’ in your daily routine that you fall into a perpetual state of procrastination and stuckness.
Even the most focused of us can get tangled up in a web of stuckness, clutter, and information overload. Everything becomes a struggle, leaving you feeling exhausted, apathetic, unmotivated, uncreative, unfulfilled, lost, and out of alignment with your authentic self.
You may be a parent trying to juggle many things. You may be an executive or a small business owner looking to find balance between the demands of work and the needs of your family. Or an empty-nester wanting to design the next chapter of your life. Maybe you want more fulfilling relationships or that one spectacular partnership.
Perhaps you want to become healthier, desire a career change or are an artist looking for a creative breakthrough. Or an ambitious entrepreneur with a brilliant idea for a product or service that will change the world for the better. Maybe you just want to figure out how to truly enjoy your life.
That is where a Life Coach comes in. I will help you turn your dreams, hopes and goals into reality.
