Difficulty Making Changes

Rita helped me become more aware of my entrenched ideas and habits,

and then helped me create goals to change them.

I asked Rita to be my life coach because I generally knew what changes I wanted to make in my life… I just didn’t know how to make them. I felt like I was going around and around trying to make changes. I didn’t understand why the changes weren’t working or sticking around. After trying many things, and not getting anywhere, I ended up feeling really, really, frustrated; I felt like maybe the changes were just too big to make.

I asked Rita to be my life coach because I generally knew what changes I wanted to make in my life… I just didn’t know how to make them. I felt like I was going around and around trying to make changes. I didn’t understand why the changes weren’t working or sticking around. After trying many things, and not getting anywhere, I ended up feeling really, really, frustrated; I felt like maybe the changes were just too big to make.

In our first session, Rita and I discussed how we would work together to make and track small, manageable changes, like how to eat more healthy. It’s funny because I’m a project manager so I know how to do this at work but not in my personal life! Things weren’t clicking for me on my own. I’ve been to therapy before, so I didn’t feel like I needed to uncover my “issues”. I needed to make life  changes!

With Rita, I have learned how to make small goals and meet them and then add more goals and meet them too — a little at a time. I’ve learned how to “get back on the wagon” when I fall off from meeting my goals. I’ve also learned that a life coach is perfect for making life changes — it’s about concentrating on the future and what I am doing Right Now to make my life what I want it to be.

Rita is incredibly patient and insightful. Making life changes is the hardest thing to do because it means we have to change our thinking and our actions, both of which have been entrenched and habitualized. Rita reminds me over and over about the little things that are impeding my process, and she never gives up. Neither do I! Over time, with Rita’s guidance, I have learned a lot about what I am doing and what needs changing.

Rita helped me become more aware of my entrenched ideas and habits, and then helped me create goals to change them. Eating right and giving myself more self-care time has been at the center of some of our work and I am so much better at them than when I started.

Rita’s background in art therapy helps me connect with my artistic self too, and we regularly use imagery to help us understand what I am feeling and thinking.  Rita has helped me develop some new modest habits that built upon themselves and help me gain more happiness in my day-to-day life as well as more authenticity and connection with my real self.

 Business Planning

… I left our sessions feeling encouraged & revitalized.

Coach Rita is phenomenal! She assisted me in laying the ground work for building my own business.

In our weekly meetings, she asked the questions that helped to truly clarify my intention and my business objectives. Each week I left our sessions feeling encouraged and revitalized.

She sent me weekly notes with the goals we set and it truly helped to hold me accountable and push me toward my goal.

Wellness Workshop

Natural Menopause Relief

I thoroughly enjoyed Rita’s recent wellness workshop, offered on managing hot flashes as well as other information pertinent to managing menopause and peri-menopause.

Great holistic strategies that really helped!  Physical, herbal, and mental strategies proved to be a thoughtful and well-rounded approach.

Thanks so much!

Unbalanced

If you’re ready for real change … that will introduce you to your true self,

then Rita is the coach for you.

To say Rita is a God send is an understatement. Rita has helped me in many ways working through different challenges in my life (family, money, work, relationship), and every time I come to Rita with my head up in the sky and my thoughts all over the place, she manages to help me get through them a better man.

We live in a society where a man should take care of his own issues, or talk to his bro’s to work through difficult situations. But ask yourself how many men actually call their ‘bro’ to discuss relationship problems, or finances, or even personal accountability.

We, men, are taught to protect our ego and asking for help is a sign of weakness. Believing in that actually does a disservice for ourselves rather than helping.

Rita is so knowledgeable and has walked me through each obstacle in my life. There is no judgment or condemnation because Rita creates a welcoming environment. After calming me down from the whirlwind of thoughts and emotions, Rita then directs my focus in the direction I should be going. She never condones or condemns any answers or decisions I make, but she asks questions to make me think of why I’m feeling such feelings.

Rita then helps me come up with solutions; solutions I had within me yet had no skills to utilize them. Rita taught me such skills, skills that I now use in problem solving and every day encounters.

With all the great things Rita does, there is one caveat. She is not a babysitter and will challenge you to take personal accountability and hold you to deadlines. The more you put into your personal transformation, the greater the results.

Many of us have good intentions, yet we fail in following through. I have worked with Rita on creating schedules for better time management, to allow me time for work, school, and leisure time.

She has helped me face one of my worst demons, my finances. I was of the mentality if I don’t see the debt, it isn’t really there. With Rita’s help I was able to face the truth and take a hard look at my finances and come up with realistic ways on tackling debt. We held weekly meetings and I had to share what progress I had.

I consider myself religious and Rita incorporates religion if you so choose. I chose to do that and I’m so glad I had. Rita not only talks from her personal knowledge and expertise, but she ties things to God and His divine plan for us.

I am forever grateful to Rita for changing my life and making me look at life and decisions differently.

If you’re ready for real change, change that will introduce you to your true self, then Rita is the coach for you.

Feeling “Lost”

Within a two month’s period … I was ‘back on my feet’

I worked with “Coach Rita” for about 3 months. I have always been a very disciplined and goal oriented person, so when my life started getting too hectic at work, too burdensome in my relationship, and too empty of “taking-care-of-me-time”, I hit a wall and had to acknowledge I needed some guidance to get back on track.

I was a little timid because I am a very private person, but Rita really creates a safe environment and comfort zone that allowed me to open up about my anxieties and concerns without feeling hesitant.

Her guidance is optimal, because as she worked with me I felt she was guiding me into myself again… sort of walking me through who I am, what I wanted in life, where I wanted to be, and how to get there.

Within a two months’ period, with Rita’s guidance, I was “back on my feet”, moving through life differently, with a healthier pace, and more positive outlook. I felt less tired, less stressed, and much happier. The term “Life Coach” fits her quite well!

Overwhelmed & Unhappy

(Rita) is my new Oprah!

In the short time I worked with Rita, she helped me realize so many things about myself, my life, and my role as a parent. I was feeling so overwhelmed and unhappy, trapped almost, when we began working together.

Rita speaks with wisdom, and from experience. Her words clicked in my mind and things began to really take shape from the beginning. Together we created a plan for me to make important changes in my life and in the ways that I parent. I no longer feel like starting a family has doomed me, and my relationships with loved ones have also gotten better.

She is my new Oprah!

Chaotic Life

(Rita) helped me develop different ways of dealing with anxiety, negativity, and …

toxic elements in my life.

I enrolled in Rita’s coaching program in an attempt to bring some order to my chaotic life. Rita was incredibly kind and caring, and helped me work through some of my toughest issues. She helped me develop different ways of dealing with anxiety, negativity, and helped me identify and remove some very toxic elements in my life. She guided me through goal setting in a way that made it easy to track and realize my progress throughout the coaching process.

Rita was extremely flexible with my busy schedule and her rates are very affordable. I continue to use what I learned from her in my day to day life. I am able to work through my stress and worry much more effectively and am genuinely much happier. Coaching, literally, changed my life.
