ALINA P. HALONEN
Certified Life Coach, Recovery Coach & Sober Companion
I am a highly skilled, compassionate, empathetic, and solution-oriented certified life coach, counselor and volunteer. In addition, I am a great listener, effective communicator, who has the inherent ability to view things from others’ perspective and take into consideration relevant factors when implementing solutions. I am an individual who is not judgmental, who is extremely self-aware, and possess skills and great ability to interact, and relate to other people, establish rapport, and build trust.
I am a world-traveled, well-educated, accomplished professional and a leader. In addition, I am multi-lingual and culturally competent, with a demonstrated track record of being able to successfully work with individuals from diverse backgrounds, both in one-on-one and group settings. I possess a unique blend of skills that are complimented by my unparalleled life and professional experience. In addition, I offer a unique approach, which derives from my personal and diverse background, passion, talent and my dedication to help others.
As a certified professional, I have the knowledge, training and obligation, to uphold ethical codes and standards set by The International Coach Federation . I apply those principles and ethics to my life coaching practice, such as competence, integrity, professional responsibility, and respect of clients rights and dignity.
I am someone who loves life and everything it has to offer. I embrace challenges and I believe that one never stops learning as long as one lives. My life is an adventure and I am seeking to make it the best one possible. I am a natural risk taker. I have never been conventional in my thoughts and actions. I prefer to know the thrill of living on the edge, than huddling away in life that is ordinary.
Due to my life and traveling experience, I have had the pleasure to interact with a very wide range of personalities from different cultures. So at this point it takes a lot to surprise me. My sense-of-humor is alive and well, and I am some on who is easy to get a long with.
My goal is to help my clients break through the obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life. Life is too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled. I am here to help my clients achieve a more positive outlook on life, and provide them with all the tools necessary to get them there. Let me help you learn and develop better ways to handle the issues that are standing in the way of your goals.
