Life Coaching for College Students and Young Adults

An interesting phenomena has been occurring with college-age young adults who are either feeling depressed, anxious, or isolated at college and have chosen to return home or were forced to due to COVID-19.

Reduce Your Anxiety with Diet Changes

Anxiety is very prevalent right now. But many of my clients don’t want to rely on a prescription medication to treat their symptoms.  Research shows a change in  your diet may help.

There are many types of anxiety such as feelings of fear, worry and uneasiness. Each one is usually generalized and unfocused as an overreaction to a situation that is actually minimally stressful.
