I use my knowledge of Cognitive Neuroscience to enhance my clients' results. I have published in the areas of Motivation and Reward, Impulsivity, Attention, Time Perception, Brain Plasticity, Mental Effort, and Mindfulness.
If you want to make more money, improve your relationships or increase your health and wellness, you need to find a way to be the CEO of your life. However, people generally have an easier time finishing tasks when they are in a structured environment with external deadlines. The BIG life goals require self-directed behavior. This is hard for everyone!
I take a holistic approach to all big goal achieving. People often put off the things that matter most because they 1) experience negative feelings when they take on important tasks and 2) the brain is wired to value immediate rewards over delayed rewards. My approach helps people overcome these obstacles by making sure they create tasks that create more joy and minimize negativity. I also help people maintain motivation with sincere positive feedback rooted in measurable results tracking.
Most importantly, I create a supportive, non-judgmental experience for all of my clients. Showing up every week to make your life better can be uncomfortable. I create a space that adds enjoyment and ease to the process of transforming your life.
Here are some examples of how I have helped past clients:
I have helped dozens of people plan and execute their career goals. Careers are big undertakings, and people need help in all stages of their career development. I have helped clients become successful in the following areas:

*Create opportunities for growth at their current jobs
*Decide on a new career path
*Market their prior skills during a career change
* Select training programs
*Start and finish dissertations
*Improve academic performance
*Search for jobs
*Apply for more jobs (let's face it, applying for jobs is a boring job!)
*Write great resumes
*Re-enter the workforce after a break in employment
*Regain confidence after losing a job
Starting a business can be a challenge. My clients have hired me because they procrastinate, work hard but not smart, feel overwhelmed or lack confidence. I have also had clients who run their business like it is a hobby, aren't organized, feel out of control, or they feel shame around collecting money.
I help my clients create realistic plans, get more clients, make important decisions, become proactive, confident and calm I also help them have healthy boundaries and feel positive about wanting monetary success.
To start a small business, you need to know how much money you need to earn, find time in your week to work on your new business, determine if there will be any start-up costs, and if so how you will finance your startup. You need to know what your product will be and what clients you would like to attract. You often need to define multiple revenue streams, set realistic goals for your sources of revenue, determine pricing, develop a marketing strategy and create ongoing content. You need to able to accept payment, choose an accounting system, set up legal protection. Most businesses require some amount of technology, like web sites, social networking, scheduling systems, accounting systems, etc. You will need to make decisions along the way about whether its better to hire professionals or do it yourself. You need to decide if your business is a full time career or an extra source of revenue. If you want your business to be your full time career, you will need to decide how much revenue you need to make before you can quit your day job.
I have helped people create businesses and secondary sources of income in several industries.
