Call 919-485-9738 or Email Martha in Chapel Hill, near Durham & Hillsborough, NC for Life Coaching

Together we explore your wishes, develop your goals and set out a plan for everyday action.  I invite you to mindfully sense what is important to you for well-being and living your priorities.  And then help you find the path to follow.  We are a team committed to your progress toward wish fulfillment.

Perhaps you already practice mindfulness and want to go beyond and apply it in new ways.  Or perhaps you are curious about mindfulness and how it can help you.  Or maybe you want a coach to develop and stay with a mindfulness practice.  Mindfulness is a special kind of gentle attention to the moment with the qualities of acceptance, curiosity and respect.  Link for more Thoughts on Mindfulness.  Mindfulness is a great foundation for gentle but sometimes dramatic change.

Life Coaching is convenient, private, and goal-oriented.  We can meet by phone at a convenient place and time.  You pick the place, either my office or the phone, and we agree on the time.

Coaching or psychotherapy?   In general, coaching may focus more on goals and life enrichment.  Whereas, in general, psychotherapy may focus more on healing deeper layers.  Inevitably, there is overlap.  Insurance does not cover coaching or phone meetings.  We can discuss which service might be the best fit for you.

With over 20 years experience as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, it was a natural transition to expand into life coaching.  Mindfulness and a solution orientation contribute to my coaching style.  Please see About Martha  to learn more about my training and background.
