Love Your Life Coaching

Are you constantly overwhelmed and stressed? Are you paralyzed by overthinking and indecision? Are you stuck in self-sabotage and unhealthy habits?

Sharon offers focused coaching to help you reach your goals, manage worry and overwhelm, start prioritizing yourself, and love your life again!

Please note: I am not currently accepting new coaching clients


The coaching I do is short-term and focused on a particular issue, problem, or question. It's present focused and goal oriented. For example, coaching might address the specific question of how to set boundaries with your mother by helping you create a plan and develop strategies for setting boundaries and dealing with boundary violations. Coaching wouldn't explore the history of your relationship with your mother or work on resolve unresolved issues from the past.

It's important to recognize that coaching is not the same as counseling or psychotherapy. Counseling treats a mental health or substance abuse problem. Coaching is not a healthcare service and therefore is not reimbursable by insurance. Coaching focuses on the present and future, it does not delve into the past to resolve issues from the past or seek to understand root causes of behaviors. If you are not sure whether you need counseling or coaching, please read this article or call me for clarification.

Coaching sessions are generally conducted through Skype, although you can come to the office if you're local. Most of my clients use 1-3 coaching sessions to address a specific issue or question.

Sharon Martin’s new e-book– Navigating the Codependency Maze: A Path to Freedom and Healthy Love  is a wonderful tool for anyone who struggles with wanting healthy relationships but doesn’t know how to begin that journey, either on their own or with a trusted therapist or coach.  Sharon’s language is kind, non-judgmental, yet never shies away from being straightforward. This book takes the reader from an understanding of the concept of what is co-dependency through chapters that carefully lay out steps to begin the healing journey, to resources and worksheets that will support the work.  If you are looking for healthy relationships with others and most importantly yourself, this is a wonderful place to start. — Charlotte Hiler Easley, LCSW, ESMHL
