Passionate About Inspiring Others

 

... A Little about our Founder...........

 

Our Founder, Joan Bowla, MSW, had a vision 9 years ago when she gave up a 20 year career in Administration to follow her passion in life – that is,” to help others through their struggles”, especially after overcoming a series of losses that caused her enormous stress and anxiety. She then went on to pursue her Master of Social Work from Florida Atlantic University and later entered the field of Counseling and Social Work. Since entering the field, Joan has gained extensive experience working with all populations across the board which includes children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly. After quitting her jobs as a full-time Primary Therapist in the Addiction and Behavioral Health Industries where she successfully helped many cope with the daily stressors of life, Joan’s passion drove her to open her own practice as a Life & Wellness Coach and founded Real-Life Coaching, LLC.  Using a combination of her own experiences, knowledge, and expertise, she has been able to build trust in therapeutic settings, successfully helping others to regain balance and purpose in life.
