Stop Dwelling And Start Doing


“Life Coaching takes the weight off your shoulders because it clears your mind and gets you moving in the direction of your goals rather than ruminating and being stuck in one place.”

Melisa S. Baker, MA, Art Therapist & Life Coach

Don’t let your rut throw your life or career journey off track!

Melisa helps people go through life changes: from divorce, to coming out to career changes, to empty nesters and more. A primary goal is to help people get comfortable in their own skin, find their voice then speak up so they feel equal in their partnerships, careers, activities. When one is comfortable with who they are they are able to go after their dreams and live their lives to the fullest.

With transitional life coaching you will get out of your rut, achieve the goals you’ve been dreaming about and face each day with a renewed sense of excitement and purpose. Melisa will help you to revamp your and thinking and approach to the problems and stuck areas of your life. She will help you build a tool box filled with practical skills organize and prioritize your to-do list, create simple plans to move toward your goals, overcome doubt and fear that’s kept you stuck, and help you execute your plan and ideas so you can realize your dreams; all the while receiving continuous support, guidance accountability.

 

Is life coaching for you?

Who life coaching benefits - those whose want to stop the dwelling and start the doing; those who welcome support, accountability and appreciate the importance of staying on track; those who want to gain control of their lives and conquer self doubt; and those who crave change in their lives. If that’s you, then let’s talk!

It’s probably not for you if…

  • you’re looking for that silver bullet to solve your problems…life changing results take time and effort

  • you want to be told what, when and how to do anything/everything…client’s are far more invested in putting in the work and achieving results when they are directly involved in the what, when and how

  • you don’t want to be accountable…It’s your life, you’re the only one responsible for it?

  • you’re not open to new ideas and approaches to getting things done…you will limit opportunities, skills and experiences if you keep a closed mind.

  • you’re severely depressed, anxious or suicidal…As a therapist I highly recommend you don’t underestimate depression. Feelings of depression and suicidal ideation that interfere with daily life are important to deal with and can be managed well with appropriate therapy, medication. There are many very effective short term and longer term treatments available. Take the time to understand why they are happening. Take time to find a therapist in your area. Don’t be afraid to ask questions until you find one you are comfortable with.
