Take Back Control of Your Life From Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is not a choice. It affects brain and body functions, takes mental energy, challenges a person's coping capacity, and can be depressing.  It can interfere with mental control, memory, attention, and general functioning.  This loss of function, productivity, and independence is discouraging and some feel hopeless. People living with chronic pain often lose their sense of self. They feel worthless and very alone.

Working with a pain coach may help you.

If any of that sounds familiar to you, please contact us because it does not need to be this way!

There are evidence-based interventions paired together while working with a health & wellness coach that may help you manage your pain better.

"Cindy had a deep and intuitive knowning about my experiences even before I said them out loud.  She tuned in, listened and really got me.  Having her listen and be with me in this way felt safe."

Cindy speaks from her own experience with chronic pain. In spite of everything she has been through she is an incredibly brilliant positive light for others.  She is a good listener and friend to anyone who has chronic pain. I feel that Cindy really helps people because she genuinely cares and because she has developed the skills to know how to help others. Cindy does amazing work!

After my mother passes away, I lost my guidance.  I lost my friend, my advisor and my coach.  I was so grateful to have Cindy in my life.  She was born for this.  I am 37 and suffer from pain everyday.  I have for the past two years.  Doctors downplay my pain; they often associate my pain with the loss of my mother and I have been told multiple times that I was just depressed and overweight and that was my problem.  I have had real symptoms pushed under the rug.  I got to a point that I was complaisant with my pain.  I figured it was just a part of my life and I should give up.  Cindy said no! You must fight for yourself and stand up for yourself.  She reminded me to not give up.

I am not cured of my issues, but thanks to Cindy's guidance and support, I maintain a sense of self now that I never had before.  I am pushing my doctors now by asking the right questions and making them really pay attention.  It is so important to me now.

I am learning to put myself first.  I am learning that I don't have to bend to other's wills and that my feelings matter.  It's ok to say no.

If you want a great life coach, informative person to guide you, and a friend, Cindy is the best choice.  I will continue to have her in my life to help me to make my way, not just muddle through life.
