Everyone around you seems to think you have it made. And yet…

… your Sunday afternoon blues begin Friday night.

… when people ask how you are, your default response is “Busy.”

… you used to joke about people trying to “find themselves,” but recently it stopped being funny

… you can’t help but ask yourself, “Is this all there is?”

… worst of all, you feel stuck in a life you wanted to love… and you don’t recognize yourself anymore.

I’m Lee Chaix McDonough.

I can help you feel like you again.

Not like someone who’s just going through the motions. Not like someone who’s working for the weekend. But someone who’s incredibly excited to do what they love – and be what they love – every day.

Why? Because I’ve been there. I started Caravel Coaching because I know the heartache and despair of feeling like you don’t know yourself anymore. I know how that terrible disconnected feeling bleeds into every aspect of your life, infecting your work and your relationships, leaving you completely unmoored.

The only difference between you and me? I made it through.

And now I’m here to show you the way out.

Using my nearly 15 years of experience as a therapist, social worker, and coach, I help you look at your life through a different lens. Using a unique combination of Core Energy Coaching and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I guide you through a process of discovery and transformation, during which you’ll uncover what you really care about, decide how you want to show up in your life, and create a plan to move from stuck to satisfying.

What can you expect from working with me?

Working with me is unlike anything you’ve experienced before. It isn’t typical talk therapy (in fact, it’s not therapy at all), and it’s not a platform for me to sell you shit you don’t need. You can’t simply think your way to happiness, but you can create it. And I can show you how.

Together, we’ll get to the heart of YOU – your deepest self, the you at your core. We’ll clarify what matters most to you and examine the energy you’re bringing to your life. We’ll pinpoint any areas that feel out of alignment (your job, your health, your relationships…) and we’ll develop a plan that gets you back to living an authentic, fulfilling life. YOUR life, the way you dream it can be.

When we work together, I not only tell it like it is, I tell it how it could be.
