Life Coaching is a bit different from counseling in that Life Coaching takes your life experiences, skills, talents, hopes, and dreams, as well as the areas of your life that need improvement, and helps you become the Best You You Can Be!
We combine Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral, and Client Focused Approaches to breakthrough roadblocks, move on to better living, and get past Ambivalence.
As an added bonus, Life Coaching services are available now On-Line! Life Coaching sessions are $50 USD an hour. We use video chat through Skype (at the time of this writing) for sessions. We cannot accept insurance for this service, we do accept payments through PayPal (please see the button below the picture of our service providers on the left).
Although Life Coaching is different from Counseling, our Clinicians at A Willow Bends, LLC are able to provide Life Coaching with a Mental Health Counseling focus! Please give us a call or send us an e-mail to set up an appointment!

What is EMDR?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a"newer" therapy that has been gradually spreading across the world as an innovative way to help people who have gotten to a point in their lives where they seem, "stuck," and need something new to get to that, "next level," or to work on things from the past that are holding them back from their true potential.
Please visit the website for the EMDR International Association to find out more, including new and exciting research that has been done regarding the efficacy and positive long term effects that have been observed!
Here at A Willow Bends, our clinicians have been using EMDR to help our clients succeed for several years. Give us a call today!
