Karen Spencer of It Can Be Different to be Featured on Close Up Radio

AURORA, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — With all the incredible challenges and pressures we face both personally and professionally, life can be extremely tough. No wonder we can may become anxious, stressed, and lose our way. The fact is every single one of us can use guidance and mentoring but many of us don’t realize how we are unwittingly stuck in our own limiting beliefs that actually prevent us from attaining our goals and life dreams. That’s why an excellent life coach is necessary. Not someone telling us what to do, but someone who can objectively help us navigate our lives, give us a more positive outlook, and motivate us to live up to our fullest potential.

Karen is an exceptional Life Coach and Founder/CEO of It Can Be Different, a Life coaching practice.

“My coaching work is centered on helping intellectual, driven, passionate adults going through tough times struggling with anxiety, stress, or feeling totally overwhelmed,” says Karen. “I assist my clients to gain perspective, become self-aware, refocus their thinking, and develop clear strategies in all aspect of their lives. When they are able to identify core values instead of being fixated on their problems they can break through those blocks, discover different pathways, and find appropriate joyful solutions.”

Prior to starting her coaching practice, Karen worked in corporate for over 25 years. For most of her adult life, she battled stress and anxiety which negatively impacted her career and family life. Over time as her stress increased, she took the advice of her doctors and went on anti-depressants. After several years of being on different meds she realized she craved natural healing. Yoga and meditation helped a great deal but it was after working with a life coach that not only did she find clarity, healing, and authentic joy, but that her purpose and mission was to become a Life coach so others can reorganize their lives, find balance, and achieve their dreams.

“I can truly relate to my clients because I have been lost muddling my way through life thinking it was normal just as they have,” says Karen. “It’s critical for people to understand that living in a constant state of stress is not something we should accept as normal. We must innovate life strategies, embrace self-discovery, and realize that if we change negative life patterns we can move forward confidently and regain that spark for life.”

Karen says when we take the first decisive step to help ourselves we are also assisting future generations. As we shift with positivity and new insight, our vibration changes and transcends so we reach multi generations beyond our life time, yet another reason why coaching is absolutely pivotal.

“Part of my philosophy is to help encourage people to understand how our unhappiness is rooted in the fact that we don’t feel we have any control over our own lives when we absolutely do,” says Karen. “Our joy should not be only in our future goals like anticipating true love or waiting for that promotion to happen, but in living mindfully, so we can be happy in the moment right here and right now.”

According to Karen, we are all meant to be in a natural state of joy, abundance, and love and when we are surrounded by negativity it is a clear indication we are not on our true path.

“Even though we deal with everyday life issues and challenges it’s critical for people to know we are not broken,” says Karen. “There is a simple and easy way to not get sidetracked but rather improve our lives, accomplish what we want, and we deserve to do this for not only our own well- being but for the good of the entire world.”

Safi Lynch, LCSW, Appears on The Immigrant Mom Radio Show

The Immigrant Mom Radio Show

The Immigrant Mom Radio Show

by Jordan Briggs

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, May 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Therapist and 2001 USC graduate, Safi Lynch appeared on The Immigrant Mom Radio Show. The April 23, segment was hosted by Igxtelle Mbah Acha, Esq., and broadcasted by Facebook Live, the host's publicist announced today.

Safi Lynch, who is originally from Liberia, West Africa, immigrated to the United States with her parents when she was twelve. The licensed, clinical social worker (LCSW) contributed to the conversation about the mental health of children of immigrant parents.

"No one shines the light on real time immigrant issues quite like Igxtelle Mbah Acha, Esq, and shining the light has never been more necessary," stated Fran Briggs, Publicist to Igxtelle Mbah Acha, Esq.

Immigrant moms often face extreme difficulty and vulnerability when raising children in a culture that recognizes mental health. That's because America's guidelines, laws, and regulations sharply contrast with their own practices and values. These factors lead to additional stress when assimilation conflicts with their new culture.

Igxtelle Mbah Acha, Esq, who immigrated to America from Cameroon, Africa, welcomed Lynch and invited her to share invaluable insights. The therapist explained that she provides mental health services to immigrant cultures that have culture identity challenges. Among the most prevalent concerns are parents who don't give enough praise to their children.

Lynch stated that the absence or lack of verbal praise when speaking to children of many immigrants is a cultural norm. She added that cultural indifference is responsible for a uneasiness to adapt. "Part of the challenge from the parents' perspective is learning to praise our children," she says.

Safi Lynch added that "children of immigrant parents want to pursue their own dreams, passions, and happiness, but they feel obligated to (follow) the path their parents' desire because of guilt. They know (and are often reminded) how much their parents sacrificed when they came to America. The solution is to praise the children where they are."

The Immigrant Mom radio show is broadcasted live every other Thursday at 5 p.m. CST. Safi Lynch's guest appearance is available for watching and listening at https://www.facebook.com/TheImmigrantMom


Safi Lynch is a therapist whose specializes in working with children of immigrant parents. She has been practicing for 19 years and is licensed in the state of Maryland. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/safilynchtherapy

Kati Wagner, NCA Board President, presents Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici with the 2020 Friend of CACFP Award.

AUSTIN, TX, USA, May 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National CACFP Sponsors Association's (NCA) Friend of CACFP Award honors and recognizes an individual who has demonstrated a commitment to supporting and improving the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) through leadership and initiative. In the past, this award has been presented to Congressman Bobby Scott, Congressman James McGovern, Senator Robert Casey, Representative Marcia Fudge, Senator Debbie Stabenow and Senator Amy Klobuchar. These individuals have made significant and demonstrable contributions to the CACFP through advocacy, legislation, education or professional endeavors that exemplify a positive impact or advancement of the national child nutrition programs.

During her years of service, Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici has focused on Child Nutrition Reauthorization for the CACFP, strengthening public education, equity in education, policy and funding to support student success, and co-founding the bi-partisan Congressional STEAM Caucus. Congresswoman Bonamici currently serves as a leader on the Education and Labor committee and Chair of the Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Human Services. In Congress, she is fighting for an equitable economy that gives everyone the opportunity to succeed. In 2015, Congresswoman Bonamici introduced The Early Childhood Nutrition Improvement Act for Child Nutrition Reauthorization (CNR) and is again dedicating her time to what will best benefit the children and the food program. Her approach has been refreshingly straight forward and includes many no cost additions to CNR with a remarkable knowledge of the CACFP.

NCA appreciates Congresswoman Bonamici’s diligent, lifetime work to expand and protect child nutrition programs in our country. We recognize the challenges she has undertaken to push for changes in hunger relief programs and food security for our nation’s children and elderly. We thank Congresswoman Bonamici for her work and honor her with the 2020 Friend of CACFP Award.

Congresswoman Bonamici will be presented with the award at the National Child Nutrition Conference in Atlanta, GA, April 14-16, 2020 where 1,700 members of the child nutrition community will gather for an incredible few days of training. Attendees will choose from over 150 workshops and training programs, network with colleagues from across the country, attend off-site excursions, and be able to visit with more than 50 exhibitors to learn about products to assist their work in CACFP. For 34 years the National CACFP Sponsors Association has offered this conference as an unparalleled training, education and networking opportunity specific to the child nutrition community.

Since 1986, the NCA is the leading national organization for sponsors who administer the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). We provide education and support to thousands of members in the CACFP community and to sponsors of all sizes from across the country. We strive to improve communication between families, caregivers, sponsors and their supervising government agencies.
