Hello! I’m Life and Inspiration Coach Tracy Baranauskas, and I’m the founder of Moving Forward Life Coaching. I work with thoughtful women, like you, who are ready to finally trust themselves and live out their true dreams.
The only problem is, moving forward towards your dreams can bring up a lot of fear.
If you’re like most of the compassionate women I work with who think and feel deeply, you have a hunch that life can be more fulfilling. So many women set seemingly admirable goals based on what they think they are supposed to do to feel happy and alive, yet once they reach those goals feel disillusioned, drained, and stuck.
It’s my job to help you find more clarity about what ignites your passion, teach you how to trust yourself and your inner voice more fully, and hold that belief for you when your mind gets hijacked by your fears.
I help you give yourself the permission to go after what you want in life and develop the confidence and courage to do it! In short, my job is to get you moving forward towards realizing your dreams.
Moving Forward Life Coaching was born from my own dream of helping women tap into their strengths and activate their true potential.
I’m a former social worker with a BA in Psychology from Lake Erie College, and I’m a Certified Life Coach. No matter the position, I have always found joy in helping my clients discover and embrace their unique gifts and talents.
So when I lost my job unexpectedly in 2014, life coaching seemed like a natural fit and Moving Forward the perfect name for my coaching business! I am living out my dream in a way that lights me up, and I want the same for you!
Here are answers to some of the questions I sometimes hear, in case you are also wondering…
How is coaching different from therapy or counseling?
While life coaching is supportive, it is not therapy or any other type of mental health care. Coaching is distinct from therapy or counseling because it is not designed to address psychological issues. Coaching is not intended to be a replacement for counseling, psychiatric interventions or treatment for mental illness or substance abuse.
It’s important to me to stay safe and behave responsibly during the pandemic. Do you meet with your clients in person or virtually?
I get it, and so meetings are all virtual. Zoom video calls allow you to attend our sessions from the safety of your home. Your location and the pandemic will never slow us down!
Does it even make sense to begin coaching during a pandemic?
Absolutely! Now is the perfect time to move forward! I certainly understand the challenges of these strange times, however there are ALWAYS ways to pivot, adjust and realign. Your dreams are too important to put on hold! As your coach, I will inspire you to see all your options and develop a steadfast mindset of belief and determination.
Sister, you deserve to shine!
