    6 Clinical  CEUs

    We all know that social workers have a multitude of skills that are transferable to a wide variety of settings, why not life coaching? Social workers inherently have the knowledge to help clients cope with challenges and achievement, the practice of life coaching can be a logical career move. Life Coaching focuses on helping others achieve their personal best. The goal is to create ease, enhance power and develop abundance. We will discuss the essence of lifestyle design as the wealth of effective and creative tools that empower clients to transform their lives, situations, and outcomes. Lifestyle design is essential to guiding clients toward clarity, enlightenment, and inspiration to create their ideal life.

    Bailey Frumen, MSW, LCSW,  helps women break free from stress and boredom to create their ideal life. In 2012, after being physiologically and emotionally burnt out from living life like a “You Should” checklist, Bailey decided to break free and finally create a life that she adored. From the inspiration of her journey to rebuild her health and reconnect with her life, she created Life Love Roadmap.
