Claim Your Life will assist you in:
Rejuvenation, relaxation, "you-time" (hobbies), and self-awareness are key components to living a fuller, happier, and richer life. When we are living in a stressed out and chaotic day running from one activity to another all day, we lose our life energy to be vibrant, creative, happy, and fully engaged in our lives. We begin to live by a "to-do list" and it takes over our lives, relationships, causes health problems, may cause depression and anxiety, and can even affect your career and family life. Our emotional resiliency is low and stress takes away our happiness. We can learn to take care of ourselves, prioritize, and live fully in the present moment. My program will help align you to your best version of "you" by developing an ongoing practice of mindfulness, serenity, and problem-solving techniques so you are better able to deal effectively with stress when it does arise in your daily life. You will be better equipped with a De-Stress Toolkit that will help you apply quick solutions to stressful situations and proactively reduce stress in your daily life. Claim Your Life back and live fully.
Please answer true or false to the following questions.
You will be rating each section on a scale of 1-10 (with 1 being that you are not at all satisfied with this area and a 10 being that you are completely satisfied with this area). Please begin with one of the sections and rate your satisfaction with that area of your life. If you are feeling like it is fantastic, rate it higher. If it is a challenging area (we all have those), you can rate it lower.
The objective is not to get all 9's or 10's. It is to gain a quick perspective about your life's satisfaction in these areas of your life.
Nobody has to see this but you, so try to answer as honestly as possible.
Filling our the Wheel of Life can be done weekly during the beginning of your practice. This will help you identify (quickly and painlessly) where you are in each area of your life.
At the end of the exercise, try not to judge your ratings. Instead, try to find a compassionate and proactive way to change one of the areas during the following week. You can fill in the Action Items on the second sheet to help you. You can post this in an area that you can see each day and make these items part of your 45 minutes of de-stressing.
Positive and small changes add up quickly.
Try to have self-love and compassion. We all have areas to work on in our lives. Try not to judge your numbers. Start from where you are and work from there.

I have a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology and have training in mindfulness, Reiki, Parent Education, and Life Coaching. I was a therapist for 6 years, a business owner for 8 years, Group Leader for Parent Education for 6 years, and a Claim Your Life Consultant and Reiki Master. In each role, I have helped clients find better paths to living and discover better solutions for challenges in their lives. I believe awareness is the first step. I believe daily practice is essential. I believe being willing to try new things is necessary. I believe in building a meditation/mindfulness practice. I have an active mind and body and it can be difficult for me to slow down. I have experimented with and tried many types of meditations. I absolutely believe anyone can do, but you HAVE to find the type of meditation that works for your personality and style. I have meditated for over 10 years.
I have researched and taken coursework including tens of thousands of hours of research into happiness, consciousness, self-growth, and psychology. I began my practice over 20 years ago. I am excited to streamline the self-growth and self-discovery process to those on the journey to be the best they can be. It takes work, tenacity, and dedication, but the rewards are amazing. You can open yourself to so many possibilities and learn to integrate useful and practical techniques into your life to improve productivity, stress management, authentic living, self-awareness, and rejuvenation. This journey has taken me to many wonderful places of discovery and exploration. In this process, we can truly learn who we are, build a toolkit to help ourselves with being the best we can be. It is through this process that we become conscious co-creators of our lives and build the ability to truly and authentically Claim Our Lives.
