Executives come to me when they want to:
Overcome insomnia and get better sleep
Increase control over their energy or more energy
Improve their focus throughout the day
Get off sleep medications
Develop strategies for resetting and recharging
The way I work is through
Changing mindset by teaching balance and flexibility, relaxation hacks, and self-care. Examining not only what started the sleep problem, but also what maintains it. Giving concrete, actionable steps toward achieving a specific health-related goal, whether it's better sleep, less anxiety, increased motivation, weight loss, or any other wellness area.
What executive clients can expect from working with me / outcomes
Better quality sleep, which in turn, can lead to improved mental and physical health. Specifically, clients who have successfully completed treatment have said they have little or no brain fog, along with increased patience, better tolerance of stressful situations, and better life satisfaction.
What executives say about working with me
That I'm a great listener and can tailor my approach to each individual case. I have a calm, soothing demeanor that puts people at ease, but I'm also ambitious and driven enough to relate well to executives and others in high-pressure situations. I am devoted to helping executives reach their goal of living and working better through quality sleep and shedding attitudes that aren't useful.
Why I find this work so gratifying – a personal perspective
Not sleeping well or enough is a miserable experience. It's immensely satisfying to help my clients improve their sleep because the rest of their lives also improve, whether through performance, ability to handle stress, or better overall life satisfaction. We know through research that insufficient sleep negatively impacts decision making, concentration, and healthy functioning. Since executives' thought processes and decisions affect so many others, I am gratified when they improve their focus, become better leaders and help themselves and others live more vibrant and fulfilling lives.
Length of typical coaching session and overall engagement
The initial session is about 60 minutes, beginning with conversation to find out how the issue started and what maintains it. Depending on the case, follow-up sessions will be 30-45 minutes. I ask clients to keep sleep diaries and give relaxation techniques to use between meetings. A typical engagement is 4-6 sessions.
