Tara West, MASF, Life Transitions Coach
I am a Life Transitions Coach with Restoring Hope Counseling and Coaching, halfway through my coursework towards certification in life coaching. My MA is in Spiritual Formation and BA in Christian Education with a concentration in Psychology. I also write, speak, teach, and lead small groups.
I have felt a calling to help others grow since I was in college. This has played out in a variety of ways in my life. I come from a blended family and have experienced the complexity of relationships involved with this type of family for my entire life, as well as losses of a parent, three siblings, and close aunts/uncles. My education and experiences have enabled me to be uniquely equipped to help others in their discipleship journeys, ministries, and in finding a better path to living a balanced life.
My focus is on finding life balance in the six primary areas of life: mental, physical, spiritual, social, emotional, and vocational. I believe working towards a balance in all six areas can mesh together to enable any client to move forward in whatever area of their life in which they are experiencing change. I offer a listening ear with encouragement, accountability, and challenging questions.
In my work through Restoring Hope Counseling and Coaching, I will assist you in addressing specific goals for your personal life to help you move forward past feeling stuck or “paralyzed”. For me, life coaching is about looking at the present with a view of the future and coming alongside my client to help bridge the gap between where you are now and moving towards where you want to be. I’ve experienced the benefits of having someone coach me through some areas of life where I couldn’t seem to make any progress.
