Contact and Frequently Asked Questions

If you are interested in life coaching or hypnotherapy and would like to receive an assessment form to get started, please complete the brief form below. Upon completion of this I will contact you to schedule a FREE 20-minute consultation. The consultation is important to ensure that I can help you, but also that we are a good match. You would never want to work with someone you didn’t connect with or like, and I would not want to work with someone that I didn’t think I could sincerely help.

You can also use the form to ask a question, request a future blog topic, or invite me to speak at your next event. Thank you in advance!

Frequently Asked Questions about BU2BFULL

Q: What credentials do you have?

A: I am a Certified Life Coach (CLC) from the Life Purpose Institute. I am also a Certified Hypnotherapist (C.Ht.) with the National Guild of Hypnotists. I also bring nearly 50 years of life experience and 25+ years of corporate experience. In my corporate world, I have been a leader, mentor, coach, supervisor, manager, and self-starter.

Q: How did you come up with the name BU2BFULL?

A: While thinking about a self-esteem project for something else, I was reminded that every person is beautiful in their own way. One of the qualities that make people the most beautiful is being themselves an loving themselves. While thinking of it like that it came to me: be you to be full and have a fulfilled life. The reason the name is spelled out like it is is so it can somewhat look like the word beautiful.

Q: Why do you teach self-love and self-acceptance and why is that so important?

A: Self-love is vital because it sets the stage for your life, including how you love others and how you love life. If you cannot love yourself — or love yourself fully — how can you truly love another? Also, I feel self-acceptance is closely related to how you value yourself, and without holding yourself of high value you accept what is given to you, and when you do that you will never live a life of your dreams. Everyone deserves to live a life of their dreams and to know that they are valuable and lovable.

Q: How did you come up with the niche market of “divorce recovery strategist”?

A: It was during my own divorce that I struggled the most in my life. Although it was terribly difficult and at times felt like it would destroy me I kept remembering that I am a survivor.  I kept my eyes and thoughts on that and that is where I kept them until I was through the process and on my way to recovery.  It was also during this time (after having a horrible dating situation and deciding to take some time off for me) that I did my soul searching, and I have grown incredibly as a person since then. I want to remind other woman that they can and will survive their divorce and actually be a better person in the long run.

Q: How did you come up with the niche market of “confidence coach”?

A: It is my desire that everyone in the world be able to hold their head high in life. To me, confidence is what makes the difference between a good life and a great life. People should know themselves, know their gifts and their value, use them everyday, and feel proud. Life is much too short to feel less than anyone.

Q: Why do you hold workshops and what do you teach?

A: I hold retreats for women because it is a great opportunity to bring together like-minded women who can learn and grow from one another. The retreats are jammed-packed with activities, ranging from finding your passion, setting goals, creating a vision board, sharing ideas and tips and tricks, to sharing of resources such as books, podcasts and much more. 

I have also held team-building retreats for businesses, group training and goal-setting for MLM’s, personality-style workshops (not just defining yours, but teaching you how to work with other styles!), value determination workshops, and budget workshops.

Q: What is Hypnotherapy?

A: Hypnotherapy is hypnosis which is essentially a very deep state of relaxation whereby the client is radar focused. When a client is in hypnosis you are able to work with the subconscious level of the mind. It can be used to change bad habits and limiting beliefs as well as instill positive behaviors.

Q: Where do you practice?

A: I have a home office for both the life coaching and the hypnotherapy. However, life coaching can be done over the phone or web video such as Zoom or Skype. Hypnotherapy can be done over web video since I would need to see signs that you are under hypnosis. The Workshops are typically held out of my home (because I live on a hobby farm and have a beautiful solarium, which is a room of 50% windows on one side and brick-exposed on the other) or at SHIFT Coworking in Crystal Lake, Illinois. However, I can also come to your location if you have a handful of friends that you would like to gather at your home.
