Break the cycle of emotional suffering

hello, future mental health queen!

I’m Jade

After years of fighting severe Borderline Personality Disorder depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and self-hatred, I now use the recovery skills that restored my mental health to help women who are searching for a way out of unbearable pain.

  My mission is to change the way we talk and think about mental health, build a daily practice of easy-applied tools and habits for building happiness, and personally walk you step-by-step through the challenges until you can take on life like a mental health QUEEN.

What I Do

Mental Health Coach

I simplify the steps that get you from being overwhelmed and discontent to capable and confident, so you can manage life’s challenges with ease.  No matter what your goals are for yourself and your family’s mental health, identifying and then assisting you in taking those steps is my primary objective, using the same tools and techniques that allowed me and countless others like me to flow with a life of joy and integrity. 

 

How Coaching is Different

 I just can’t say it enough; coaching is not treatment or therapy.  Psychiatrists, therapists, doctors… they are a vital part of the recovery process and I encourage ALL my clients to have a qualified treatment team overseeing your mental health.  I will even help you find someone in your area, and regularly partner with clients’ treatment teams.  

But coaching is not the same as treatment.  It’s more like a perfect addition to treatment.  Coaching is there to walk the steps with you, to encourage you on the hard days, to push you when you don’t want to get out of bed.
