Transformational Coaching

Be proud of who you are.


My Mission is to empower you to know yourself and to act in alignment with your values, principles, and truths; in essence, to find your authentic self, to trust and respect yourself. 

My Vision is to shift the context of your recovery from coping with and managing addictions and/or mental health issues, to uncovering and healing the deepest source of your addictions and suffering, and as a result becoming more self-realized. To be the creator of a life you are truly proud of. 

I will work together with you to find your personal power. Through self-discovery exercises you will learn how to use the relationship of your head, heart and center to build a life of balance and prosperity. 

I coach each client as a unique individual. I truly believe that you have everything you need inside to create the life you dream of. My job as your coach is to build a pathway to your true self.

Coaching vs. Counseling



Happiness Is Work provides Recovery & Integration Coaching, NOT Counseling. Although there are similarities, the

two are very different and it’s important you know what these differences are.

Happiness Is Work Recovery Coaching

● Coaching is an emerging profession not

regulated by legislature

● The coach/client relationship is an equal

partnership focused on the client with fewer

restrictions than counselors

● Coaching is based on coaching techniques,

coaching experience, practical observation,

self-help & personal growth literature, & life


● The assumption holds that clients are

coachable and competent to achieve their

goals & take responsibility.

● The focus is on goal achieving to include:

goal setting, action steps, routines,

schedules, and tracking charts to hold

clients accountable to goals.

Professional counseling

● Counselors must have a license to practice

counseling or psychotherapy

● The counselor is the authority and

professional, and there are many

restrictions on the counselor/client


● Based on the medical model, theory based

approved psychotherapies, and specific

schools of thought; techniques are based

on counselor’s training, education, and

professional experience.

● Assumption holds that something is wrong

with the client.

● Focus is on pathology, diagnoses, mental

illness, problems, symptoms, and

understanding causes.
