About Coach Barry Wertheimer
Is your inner dialogue holding you back? I partner with people to transform unhealthy habits into mindful choices that align with their values. If you're feeling conflicted by living a life that doesn't celebrate your values, I can help you to redesign a more congruent lifestyle.
We all lead intermingled, messy lives and get stuck from time to time. Unhealthy patterns of thought, behavior, and relationship can creep in, until we begin to realize that maybe we could use some help with a course correction.
Each moment of your life is a gift, an opportunity to learn, see and evolve. Expanding your point of view can help to see the possibilities in front of you and move beyond your resistance. *If you have this idea (even if the voice speaking to you is very small and quiet) that there might be another way to live: Listen.* -Laura McKowen
For the past years, my listening heart and shared language skills have enabled me to guide hundreds of people toward a better life. Like you adults and teens as they sought a life free from the chains of limiting beliefs, depleted energy, unhealthy habits, and unrealized potential, I noticed a common theme: that listening with an open heart, curious mind, and effective strategies paves the way to meaningful growth.
Owning your process by getting back into the driver's seat of your life, with an experienced and trusted partner by your side, will move you in the direction of the life you deserve.
Goals that don't represent our values are often unsustainable and unfulfilling. So, I invite you to spend time on identifying your values first. Only then can you map out goals and action steps that line up with who you are and what you want. Because the human brain is wired for negativity bias, safety, and the status quo, I will offer honest, positive feedback to help you: 1) identify what matters most to YOU, 2) learn from setbacks and overcome obstacles, 3) install beneficial experience to reinforce inner resources, and 4) stay on track until you are ready to do so for yourself.
Because reaching for a better life can feel uncomfortable, I strive to create an inviting space that both challenges and compels you, while encouraging small, incremental shifts as your transforming life unfolds. My approach is results-driven, compassionate, wholehearted and non-judgmental.
Infused with years of coaching wisdom, I will actively listen to your story, support you through life's ups and downs with greater ease and clarity, and help shift your narrative toward inspired action and optimal well-being.

Please know that I strive to be a caring, attentive and responsive coach. While I view Saturday as a day to replenish, often spending time in nature, I will do my very best to reply to your message within 24 hours, no later than 48 hours. Feel free to set the messaging cadence that works best for you, whether that be daily messages or 1 to 2 messages per week.
Note: A coaching relationship is in no way to be construed as psychological counseling or any type of therapy. In the event that you feel the need for professional counseling or therapy, it is your responsibility to seek a licensed professional.
In support of my commitment to meaningful, positive life change and coaching excellence, I aim to work with no more than 10 to 12 people at one time. If, after chatting and reading my profile, you know that you would like to partner with me, please let me know as soon as you decide.
I am committed to providing all of my clients with exceptional care. When a client cancels without giving enough notice, it can undermine the value of our coaching partnership and the investment of my time before and after each call. If you are unable to keep a scheduled phone appointment, I ask that you please do your best to provide me 12 to 24 hours notice. If you experience an emergency or urgent conflict, we can reschedule the call. Otherwise, you will be charged for the missed call.
A few more thoughts....
HOW CAN WE BE BETTER STEWARDS OF OUR POTENTIAL?
Our personal habits - emotional, nutritional, physical, cultural, and spiritual - are the foundation of our happiness, fulfillment and potential to bloom. While healthy habits support our growth, others can get in the way. However, prioritizing the alignment of our habits with our goals and values isn't as easy as it seems. I can help you to clarify and cultivate your passions to enrich both your own life and the lives of those around you. I believe we are called upon, today more than ever before, to connect and evolve TOGETHER.
Let's work together to design goals and choices that align with your values for optimal well-being.
