I work with women dealing with trauma recovery, stress management, and developing their Self Series (Love, confidence, esteem).
Certified Professional Coach
Certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner
With a past deeply rooted in trauma, I understand the challenges that come with adversity. Most of my pain came from unloving relationships. Having dealt with not one - but two - abusive partners, I know what it feels like first hand to love someone that only loves to hurt and control you. It took a lot of faith, courage, and planning, but I was able to escape such a horrendous experience - twice. Even though the abusers were out of the picture, I had a new trauma to conquer: my own mind. There were moments of self-loathing, thoughts of worthlessness, and periods of depression and anxiety. It took years of therapy sessions, coaching sessions, and using mental healing techniques such as NLP and journaling to restore what I thought was destroyed by these two men. Yet, I survived and so did my desire to have a better, more fulfilling life. Using my experience - and becoming my biggest cheerleader - I have empowered myself to purpose my pain and help other women achieve a life full of joy, peace, abundance, and prosperity.
That's what I want to do with you. Hi, my name is Barbara, better known as Coach Cartel. My past experiences with abusive partners and loveless relationships has prepared me to help you overcome your own situation by guiding you - step by step - to set goals that design a life and future you're excited to wake up to and experience. It's my desire to help women who have been inflicted by domestic violence, abuse, neglect, and suffer in the areas that I refer to as your Self Series (Love, confidence, and esteem). Together, we can focus on the Trifecta of Empowerment: recognizing the patters of self-sabotage that may cause a repeat of past experiences; developing the skills, knowledge, and support needed to build a solid foundation for personal growth; setting goals to build an optimistic future created by your design. I aim to awaken your power within and remind you that you truly are a Queen!
My coaching methods are not cookie cutter; one size does not fit all. With attention to your personal situation, we will come up with realistic goals designed to improve your family life, financial budget, occupation, and lifestyle - amongst other areas. These goals will inspire actionable steps that you can take immediately to move from a life of pain to a life full of pleasure, passion, and possibilities. There's only so much I can tell you in a bio. I invite you to contact me at your leisure to see how I may best serve you. All conversations are strictly confidential. You will always have a safe space with me.
