Gladys is affectionately known as the self-care genie. She gives care-giving women the gift of permission to take care of themselves while taking care of everyone else's needs.
In addition to coaching individuals, groups, facilitating workshops, writing and speaking, Gladys maintains a thriving marriage and family therapy practice. She has over 15 years of combined experience guiding her clients to reach goals, set new sights and live authentically, joyfully and confidently. With integrity, compassion, gentle guidance, insightful wisdom and passionate encouragement, she has led countless women to thinking about self-care in innovative and empowering ways.
She is the author of numerous self-care articles and conducts workshops and group coaching on such topics as boundary setting, empowerment, confidence building, relationships, self-control, stress management, gratitude, life balance and communications. Gladys helps care-giving women slow down, jump off the hamster wheel and take time for self-care.
Specialized training and treading through the rough waters of taking time for self-care has equipped Gladys with the skills, determination and compelling desire to share her expertise with other women who find themselves mired in overwhelm, over commitment, overwork and overdoing.
Gladys holds a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Cambridge College, Cambridge, MA, and certification as a personal life coach from Coach Training Alliance. She is also a Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists and a member of the Connecticut chapter of AAMFT.
My passion is helping to empower care-giving women to take time for self-care so that they live richer, more authentic and fulfilled lives. I mix a blend of life experience, training, coaching and counseling skills to guide women into empowering ways of taking time for self-care.
Tailored for the busy woman who wants more focused support and desires to move forward fast to achieve maximum results. We meet via phone for one -hour, three times a month. And, you receive unlimited email support for breakthroughs and feedback during your coaching commitment. You get my undivided attention as we redesign your unique life map. I use everything I've learned, mixed with a passion for your growth, and a strong desire to support you as you discover new and exciting ways of being. There are no questionnaires to fill out, no long story-telling about the past and no labels or diagnosis. We are never looking for a quick fix or cure. We simply focus on moving forward to make more meaningful, empowering life choices. The result is that you gain increased power, inspiration and commitment to get exactly what you really want.
In an interactive 6-week group setting, you will learn to carve out quality self-care time while taking care of others with joy and energy; set clear firm boundaries about how you spend your precious time without felling guilty or frustrated; uncover limiting beliefs that keep you from taking time for self-care and much, much more. Within a safe, supporting environment, you connect with other care-giving women, get immediate answers to your questions, gain new insights and create a life map to steer you to victorious living - your way. You will move quickly to make the significant changes that enhance and clarify your life. I will be your personal experienced mentor guiding you and keeping you on track while you take this journey. You remain focused by taking personal responsibility for achieving specific action oriented steps designed to point you in the right direction as you navigate the sea of overwhelm, over-commitment and time restraints.
Periodically, I offer FREE one-hour teleclasses on self-care, boundaries, communication, gratitude, confidence building, stress and other topics designed to help care-giving women slow down, unwind and make self-care a priority.
