Are there areas of your life where you feel unhappy or unfulfilled but are stuck and feel unable to change? 

Have you spent much of your life putting the needs of others in front of your own?

Do you feel a strong desire for change, yet struggle to clarify what you really want?

Are you ready to explore what would bring more meaning and joy to your life?

If the answer is "yes", then I am so glad you have landed on my page!  I am Personal Development Coach Tracy Baranauskas and I can help you move forward!

You might be wondering…

Do I really need a life coach?  Can’t I just do it by myself?

Personal development coaching can take you above and beyond your own limitations. Most people find they are more efficient when working with a life coach.  Not only have I witnessed my remarkable clients reach heights they never imagined possible, but I have also achieved lasting success myself while working with my own coach(es)! 

Here is how personal development coaching will help you move forward:

Clarity:  The first step to moving forward is defining what you truly want for your life. As your coach, I will help you create a clear vision.  We will explore your strengths and talents, examine your values and how well they are integrated into your life, and investigate what success and happiness mean to you.

Plan of Action:  Although you probably know the importance of writing down your action steps once you have identified your goals, you may not always take the time to do this.  As your coach, I will help you break down your goals into small, manageable steps that will inspire, not scare, you.

Success Strategies:  Many people struggle to create or maintain healthy habits that support what they want for their life. Together, we will explore your natural tendencies to develop a better understanding of why certain habit-forming approaches work better for you than others. Then, as your coach, I will introduce you to strategies that are tailored to your individual personality, and help you create habits that align with your goals.

Accountability:  As your coach, I will help you stay focused on your goals and accountable to your commitments.

Mindset: If you are like most people, the thought of living a truly authentic life can create all kinds of fear. If you have been procrastinating for a while, then you know exactly what I am talking about here. We all struggle with limiting beliefs that can get in the way of what we want for our life.  As your coach, I will help you flush out the thoughts that are blocking you and rewrite your “stories” to better serve you. It takes great courage to tread outside your comfort zone, but honestly, that is where all the fun is!

Support and Encouragement:  When we decide to make a life change, this can sometimes spark fear and other not-so-helpful emotions in our well-meaning friends and family members.  Then, they often project their feelings all over us.  As your coach, I will provide you with an unbiased perspective.  I will be with you every step of the way, providing you with the support and encouragement necessary to stay the course.

If you’re not living your life to the fullest, then I hope I have inspired you to contact me so we can talk. As you may imagine, it brings me joy to help my clients feel alive, energized and fulfilled in their purpose. I’m looking forward to helping you move forward!

"I really believe that Tracy was born to do this.  Her passionate optimism mixes well with her natural assertiveness, encouraging her clients to see their own talents and pursue them.    She makes me feel so comfortable and she's helping me see that some things that seem impossible just need a second look. I encourage anyone in search of a new direction to reach out to her!" Athena P, Shaker Heights, Ohio - Facebook review

"From the very first phone call I had with Tracy, I could tell that she was someone I could trust.  As a coach, she has a way of maintaining that fine balance between encouraging a client and keeping that client on task and accountable when it comes to goals.  I can happily say that she has helped me immensely with my professional development, and that it is a pleasure to work with her." Dale K, Tallmadge, Ohio - Google review

"Sometimes we all need a coach!  I'd never sought a counselor or coach before, but when my job was suddenly eliminated, I knew I needed guidance in my next career search.  Tracy is patient and supportive.  She doesn't push; she encourages.  Her insights helped me refine my career goals.  I'm very happy that our paths crossed.  I look forward to keeping in touch as I start my new career." Kelly D, Mentor, Ohio - Thumbtack review

"I have been working with Tracy for a few months now and can tell you she is an experienced, knowledgeable, and compassionate coach.  She has the ability to ask probing questions in a dissarming manner which allowed me to look deep within myself to discover the issues I needed to deal with.  She is very encouraging, yet she also provides a measure of accountability which helps keep me on track.  I highly recommend Tracy to anyone seeking the assistance of a life coach."
