Tara:

Socrates famously, and wisely said:  “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new!”  This truism has always resonated deep within me, but, as many great acumens do, the bit about HOW one might go about achieving this magic, is notably left out. 

In my life-long search for how to actualize this ‘secret of change’, I finally discovered there was indeed a very real way to quickly and effectively shed my old, negative feelings and beliefs that persisted year after year.  After experiencing my own life shift, shake and explode and was COMPELLED to help others experience the same.

So equipped with the highest level of certification and training with the best in the field of NLP and Time Line Therapy®, I have been living and breathing the powerful reality of emotional transformation in myself and my clients. 

My area of specialty as a Coach, is in women facing difficult transitions, crisis intervention and pregnancy & birth issues. There is no reward like seeing someone transition from a state of pain and uncertainty to a strong, positive emotional state - ultimately achieving greater levels of success in their personal and professional life! 

Tara addresses the most hurtful patterns of thoughts and behaviors that keep resurfacing in our lives.  Her therapeutic techniques quickly alleviate those entrenched obstacles which get in the way of well-being.  They enable a person to come up with their own wisdom about painful past experiences and, more importantly, remedy the consequences.  One leaves the experience with immediate access to a practical toolbox to address future challenges in a healthier way.  The trajectory of their personal story is essentially changed for the better in astonishingly little time.

I am a lifelong learner, blending life experience, education, highly focused training and effective tools & techniques in my coaching practice. Becoming a Master Coach and Trainer was a natural, organic progression. 

Today, I am driven to help people who feel constrained - by uncertainty, indecision, anxiety, anger and post traumatic stress.

Each client I work with has a unique problem to unravel and a powerful future that they may not have acknowledged until we start our work together. 

I am truly passionate about my work and will go almost anywhere to support individuals or organizations to achieve resilience, to face the challenges of being at or returning from the brink.

Ultimately, I am intensely interested in the resilience of individuals, the organizations they create and serve, and the communities they live in. For me, individual resilience is grounded in emotional state management. 

Seeing people breakthrough challenges is an amazing reward!

Allen thank you very much for your professionalism, leadership and guidance that you provided me with during our Neuro-linguistic programming sessions. When I first began the sessions I suffered from extreme anxiety; this has been prevalent for roughly 15 years of my life. I can now say that I am anxiety free. I once again enjoy the beauty of life in itself ...
