Dr. Minatrea offers coaching for both personal and professional development. As a Clinical Psychologist and Certified Professional Coach, she artfully blends understanding of human behavior and motivation with practical nuts and bolts strategies for achieving both short-term and long-term goals.

Dr. Minatrea can guide you through the process of clarifying your vision and breaking it down into small, actionable steps. She serves as sounding board, offering unique perspective and helping you see multiple angles, as well as providing validation when you need a boost of confidence. She can help you anticipate possible pitfalls so you can prepare and adjust accordingly, and she will be there to provide support, encouragement, and fresh ideas if you get stuck.

The advantage of working with a coach who is also a psychologist is that Dr. Minatrea is skilled at identifying and removing mental and emotional blocks to success, including limiting beliefs, fear of failure, fear of success, and perfectionism. She is familiar with the dynamics and process of changing behavior, which more often than not, starts with changing our beliefs. For those interested in a faith-based approach, she also offers Christian Coaching.
