About Dr. Connie Woythal
Welcome to Dr. Connie Woythal’s Positive Psychology in Action website. I am pleased that your search for a life coach has brought you here. Let me tell you about me.
I have been involved in psychology in some form or another for over 30 years. First, I received a BS degree in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. Then, I earned a Specialist Degree (Masters of Science in Education plus an additional 30 credits) in School Psychology from the University of Wisconsin in River Falls. Then, I completed my doctorate in clinical psychology (PsyD) at the Wisconsin School of Professional Psychology, which is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.
–Storm JamesonMy first exposure to Neurosculpting® was when, on a whim, I purchased a 6-CD series from Sounds True. As I was listening to the series, I got more and more excited and experienced awesome transformations. So I took more classes from the Neurosculpting® Institute and found out that I could become a facilitator, and the rest is history. In August of 2017, I completed training and certification to be a Certified Neurosculpting® Facilitator. I am ecstatic to bring this cutting-edge form of meditation to others.
As a psychologist I am very interested in neuroscience, neuroplasticity and how the brain works. Neurosculpting® brings together all of these areas of interest so it is a natural fit for me.
I fell in love with psychology and learning about human nature in high school. Once I got the psychology bug, I never stopped learning. I love learning. I love sharing what I’ve learned, practiced, and experienced with others.
I feel most at home, professionally when I am teaching, mentoring, coaching, and/or facilitating. I have taught at the undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate levels. I have supervised interns in counseling, new graduates in counseling, students in graduate programs and postdoctoral individuals seeking licensure as psychologists. As a school psychologist and licensed psychologist, I have worked with individuals of all ages with varying challenges, diverse lifestyles, points of view, and cultures.
I have presented to community groups and professional meetings on a wide variety of topics including: stress management, transitioning young adults with special needs, relaxation training, positive psychology, and, most recently, Neurosculpting®.
My approach is simple I focus on an individual’s strengths. I take the time necessary to get to know each person so that I can look at the world from their point of view. When I look at the world from their point of view, I can suggest strategies and tools that fit with the individual. The basis of any coaching relationship, in my opinion, is really getting to know the client – their likes and dislikes, their challenges, their strengths, and core beliefs or values.
