Raleigh, NC – Life coaching is about helping people move forward in their lives, both personally and professionally, but for many of our military’s servicemen and women, the transition back to civilian life is often fraught with emotional challenges.
“Servicemen and women are taught so much structure because they have to obey orders,” explains Dr. Lena Klumper. “When they come home, from war especially, it’s more than a culture shock, it’s just shock."
Dr. Lena Klumper is the founder of Dr. Lena’s Life Coaching where she specializes in helping individuals be who they were meant to be by guiding them toward the path to a better life. Dr. Lena began her career with the Department of Defense working with military and their families. She then moved into behavioral health managed care, working with individuals suffering from severe and persistent mental illness. After 10 years she decided she wanted to see clients who were more goal-oriented.
“I’m a helper,” says Dr. Lena. “I missed that side of working with people who have had trauma or suffer from PTSD, but are at a point where they want to be healthier and move forward with their lives.”
According to Dr. Lena, there isn’t a lot of help out there for veterans. Though the military and government has encouraged soldiers to undergo therapy, there still exists a huge stigma. As a coach, Dr. Lena is not affiliated with the military or any insurance. There’s no medical record and it’s all completely confidential.
“If you feel you need help but you’re afraid to let anyone know, reach out to a life coach,” Dr. Lena. “Life coaching is for people who want to change their lives to improve it. We’re here to move forward and I’m here to guide you.”
