Overthink Much? I’ve Been There.
Hi, I’m Carla. I help people who tend to over-think and over-analyze gain clarity, confidence, and self-trust to create lives they love by helping them dismantle their limiting beliefs, blocks, and fears, but my clients would tell you that I help them come to acceptance and peace with themselves which is where their real creative power lies.
I spent decades struggling with self-doubt, anxiety, and a serious case of over-thinking. This led to struggles with alcohol, depression, worry, and an unhappiness I couldn’t quite shake even when things were going well. I've gone through bankruptcy, foreclosure, and to the brink of suicide.
After overcoming depression and alcohol, I found much more happiness but I still had difficulty living a productive and successful life lived with intention and purpose. All that has changed as I’ve come to understand who I really am and how state of mind determines outcomes and a felt sense of wellbeing. This understanding has transformed my life and given me a level of confidence and fulfillment in my everyday life that I couldn’t have imagined. These days, I help people discover a clear mind, more confidence, and a greater felt sense of wellbeing leading to a more purposeful and successful life both personally and professionally.
I have spent over 30 years studying, training, and working as a psychotherapist and certified master coach.
I bring to my clients proven tools and understanding to help navigate this chaotic life leading to more confidence and clarity, increased ease and efficiency, mental fitness, and peace of mind.
When I'm not coaching, I have no greater joy than spending time with family and friends, fishing, biking, wandering the woods, and being in and on the water and photographing all of it. I live in the quaint little village of Dunedin, FL and can work with clients anywhere in the world via video chat or phone.
