Hello and Welcome to  Commit2Self!

Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

As a solution-focused therapist as well as a certified life coach, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy and/or coaching approaches and techniques we will unearth long-standing patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

If you are looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you are just ready to move in a new direction in your life and for your health, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

Please call or email me for an individual consultation today.



What is in it for me??

The person that Commit2Self  initially was designed for is one that has had weight problems and is looking for that "something else" to make permanent changes in their life.  Have you  tried losing weight , been successful at losing weight only to have the weight sneak back on.? Have  you have tried a program or maybe even several programs, only to find yourself back at square one or worse then that, heavier then ever before?.  This program will work in conjunction with any other program you are using, or all by itself.  Most diets and programs do not   provide small educational steps that are maintainable and usable forever.  Commit2Self does all that and much much more.

As one of the foremost authorities on weight loss counseling and coaching (read the" about " tab!), I have the experience and knowledge to help you make the permanent changes that will make you successful.


Stop and think about your life – you have spent time and money on education, the basic education of getting through high school, the secondary education for your job, either trade school or college.  But how much time and money have you put into education on your health?  I am not talking about calories, or nutrition, or information that will either bore you to tears or be so research based that it only makes sense to a few.  I am talking about the who, what, where, when and why do you eat.   I am talking about helping you to gain  insight  into your  behavior and identify habits that you may need  to break. – “habits will win over intelligence and intent” every time.  To achieve and maintian success you must  work on identifying and breaking old habits and creating new  ones.  I can help you to do this.  I have helped literally hundreds of people during my career.    

Why the word “Commit”

When I decided to have a private  practice to help others become succesful in weight loss and other areas of their lives I thought long and hard of what to name my practice.. I wanted the name to represent the big picture. I was very aware that there are other programs and  websites that focus on how to lose weight. I thought to myself “but I want this to be more than simply a weight loss program .  I explored the process that occurs when making a change to one’s life. The change is truly the result of  actions that have a starting point.  I feel that the first step in making a change starts with one making a commitment to change. The textbook definition of the verb “commit” is:
1 to put into charge or trust : entrust
2 to carry into action deliberately : perpetrate
3 obligate, bind

So there it is, the word that I know is so important, the word is “COMMIT”
Now, do I want the commitment to be to me, to my site..Yes ,that is part of it.  But, the real commitment has to be to the person who wants to make the change. That person is “you”. You have to commit to yourSELF.  

The word “Self “is a noun that means:

“An individual’s awareness of what constitutes his or her essential nature and distinguishes him or her from all others”

Your uniqueness is that “SELF” .  It is whom you are and what no one else can be. 

That commitment  to your “SELF” is the seed you will plant to develop the changes in your life so that they can grow and you can blossem into the person you truly  want to be. 

Readiness to Change

Often there is an ambivalence towards making changes in our lives. A fear of the unknown may be the root cause of this ambivalence..
FEAR – False Evidence Appearing Real – remember that!
We may not like where we are at in our lives but at least we feel safe . The alternative is frightening. We wonder:
“What will my life be like if I make a change” what doors may open for me?” Will I be able to walk through them?”
How will people react to my change?”
These are the thoughts that may scare us away from following through with change, but staying in a place that may feel safe, but keep us feeling unhappy ….That isn’t such a great plan either. So accept these ambivalent thoughts and turn them into excitement as you embark on a new adventure which can lead you to a better place. Visualize that new exciting place, write it down and read it often..This will keep your vision alive ..This will keep you motivated and that is the key to walking through the door..

Let me open the door for you and together we will walk through it .

To your health,
