*If someone has seen me for Professional Coaching at any time, I am unable to see them for psychiatric care. Similarly, if someone has seen me as a patient, they are not able to see me for Professional Coaching at any time in the future as it would pose a conflict of interest.

Psychiatric Care

NOTE: Many therapy interventions and principles are also used as educational principles that are taught to attain and maintain wellness. The difference between their use in Professional Coaching versus Therapy is their target and intent (to promote self-actualization vs. manage an illness).

Workshop Testimonials

I increased my business by 13 million dollars through my work with Dr. Wilson!


Dr. Wilson was recommended by a client of mine 3 years ago. I intended to focus on a small section of my business I felt needed some attention. In the first meeting she helped me recognize my full potential, both in my business and personal life, and how they were connected.


My practice has grown more each year with Dr. Wilson as my coach, and I have measurable increases in efficiencies with the processes I’ve implemented based on our collaboration. I continue to work with Dr. Wilson as she continues to challenge me to be my best.
