“The secret of CHANGE is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

Time – Most clients achieve their goals within 90 days, unlike traditional methods which can take years or even decades.

Cost – The old adage “you get what you pay for” could not be more applicable when it comes to your mental wellbeing.

Qualifications – Dr. Ceruto is a pioneer in the field of neuropsychology, she possesses an extensive psychological education along with 20+ years of experience.

Neuroscience, the differentiator –  Billions of pathways in your brain light up every time you “think, feel, or do something.” If you want new habits to become ingrained in your daily life, then it is a matter of building and strengthening certain pathways while not reinforcing others.

A Solution Rooted In Hard Science

The reason traditional therapy, counseling, or coaching does not work is due to a combination of our default mindset, emotional processing, and a non-scientific approach. These antiquated methods fail to consider the physiological processes that come into play when trying to make changes in thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are enduring.

Armed with recent findings in neuroscience, we now understand how these elements have a significant bearing on the lack of efficacy in traditional therapeutic methods.

To bring about real change requires an all-encompassing scientific approach that alters patterns of thinking and behavior right at the root. We must tweak, change, or abolish old ways of thinking, emoting, perceiving, and behaving to rewire the brain towards much more advantageous neural connections. This sort of solution requires just the right combination of SCIENCE and PSYCHOLOGY.

At MindLAB Life Coaching, we offer an innovative service that does just that, tailoring goals for change toward each client and his or her unique dynamics. With expert knowledge of how the brain works and why we continually fall victim to our defunct, flawed, and faulty thinking patterns, it is entirely possible to inspire sustainable behavioral and emotional change. We do this on a physiological level so that the client no longer has to be consciously aware of or continually working on their desired changes.

Clarity & Confidence Coaching

What neuroscience has made evidently clear is that changes in the brain cause changes in your thinking, behaviors, and emotions.

Confidence Coaching by MindLAB Life Coaching will help you train your emotional brain to release an abundance of confidence lying dormant within you, the same confidence that made our ancestors believe they could face wild beasts, armed only with rocks and sharp sticks.

You may be lacking confidence because you are needlessly generating self-doubt and self-criticism which may be causing anxiety.  Through the power of neuroscience, we can change that faulty thinking.

How do I know if confidence coaching is right for me?

Some of the areas we work on with clients are:

  • Public speaking
  • Fear of confrontation
  • Inability to defend or stand up for yourself
  • Dread or anxiety over job interviews
  • Anxiety over social interactions
  • Low self-esteem
  • Indecisiveness
  • Fear of asking for a raise or promotion
  • Failure to complete goals
  • Procrastination

Clarity, Confidence, Action


Dr. Ceruto will help you make sense of everything you’ve been thinking so that you are able to see clearly what it is you want for your future. The brain fog will lift as she stretches you to think outside of the box and tap into your biggest dreams and most exciting vision.

Stress, overwhelm, and worry will soften as you begin to see a light at the end of the tunnel and, most importantly, feel inspired and excited about your future.


Possessing the belief and conviction to be anything & do anything, will give you wings. Hidden blocks that have been holding you back for years will be uncovered and you’ll receive the tools and guidance to overcome them.  Limiting behavior patterns like procrastination, self-sabotage, and self-doubt will be replaced by certainty, consistency & motivation.

You’ll begin to perceive the world differently, feeling more grounded, positive, and calm. Together we get your life moving in a fulfilling direction.


We will break your big vision down into tiny manageable steps, that you begin to take on a day-to-day basis with Dr. Ceruto’s guidance & support. We will construct a long-term strategy that shows you how to get from where you are now to where you want to be. As you take action, you’ll create new evidence that proves you can believe in yourself and your new beliefs will continue to shape the future you previously thought was unreachable.

6 Steps to Building Meaningful & Lasting Confidence

  1. Get CLEAR on what you want
  2. LEVERAGE negative feelings
  3. Make a DECISION
  4. Take decisive ACTION
  6. Always move FORWARD

Confidence is a mindset, an emotional state of clarity, decisiveness, passion, and follow-through. Without these traits, you will never live the life you truly desire. When you learn to engage these principals, you can achieve anything. The truth is, if you don’t have what you want, it’s because you haven’t fully committed to taking the essential steps or making the necessary changes toward creating a better life.

You are NOT powerless over your brain!
