Has the pressure to keep up, follow the rules and get it all done left you feeling overwhelmed?
Maybe you're stressed and anxious but have trouble slowing down.

Or you're hard on yourself and sometimes think you don't do enough. 
You might also be discouraged, doubting yourself, your career or your relationships.

Somehow your needs often get lost in the shuffle of priorities and responsibilities. On some days you're probably not even sure what you truly need or why you feel the way you do.

It could even seem like you're just going through the motions, feeling empty, depressed, worried or stuck.

In spite of all this, there's a wise woman deep inside of you who knows that life can be more satisfying and fulfilling. And it's time to feel better.

Hi, I'm Patty Bechtold, a therapist, life coach and career counselor in Santa Rosa and Sacramento who wants to help.

For more than 15 years I've been a counselor, coach and wisdom circle guide for women. Throughout the years I've met so many women who place high expectations on themselves to be perfect and figure things out on their own. The irony is that most of us actually thrive in partnership with other women, especially when we're in a safe and nurturing space.

I'm passionate about helping women like you find more ease, balance and fulfillment, and I offer an open-hearted atmosphere where you'll be fully seen, heard and understood. Wherever you are on your journey, I'll meet you right there.

You don't have to do it alone. And the good news is that counseling and life coaching really can help you feel better.
  • Be kinder to yourself and get more comfortable in your own skin
  • Know yourself better and feel free to be who you truly are
  • Build your resilience to bounce back and adapt to life transition & change
  • Develop deeper relationships that bring more connection and love
  • Increase your confidence to make decisions and move forward
  • Discover yourself, your dreams, your deep desires & your direction
  • Take action on intentions and plans you've put on the back burner
  • Open up to a purposeful life filled with wisdom, joy and meaning
