Are there areas of your life where you feel unhappy or unfulfilled but are stuck and feel unable to change?
If the answer is "yes", then I am so glad you have landed on my page! I am Personal Development Coach Tracy Baranauskas and I can help you move forward!
I am a former social worker with a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Lake Erie College, and I am a Certified Life Coach. For much of my career, I provided compassionate support to individuals and families in both clinical and non-clinical settings.
No matter the position, I have always found pleasure in helping my clients tap into their strengths and realize their true potential. So, when I lost my job quite unexpectedly about 5 years ago, life coaching seemed like a natural fit.
Ironically, during the transition time while I was obtaining my life coaching certification, I had to use all the strategies I had previously taught to others to get myself back up and moving forward. And one of the first things I did was hire a life coach!
Personal development coaching can take you above and beyond your own limitations! Most people find they are more efficient when working with a life coach.
As your coach, I will help you stay focused on your goals and accountable to your commitments. Together, we will explore your gifts and talents, and investigate what success and happiness mean to you. I will help you create a clear vision, and then develop an action plan to make it happen.
For many people, the idea of change can bring out all kinds of fears. I will help you flush out the limiting beliefs that are blocking you and rewrite your “stories” to better serve you. I will be with you every step of the way providing support, encouragement and guidance.
It brings me joy to help my clients feel alive, energized and fulfilled in their purpose!

I really believe that Tracy was born to do this. Her passionate optimism mixes well with her natural assertiveness, encouraging her clients to see their own talents and pursue them. She makes me feel so comfortable and she's helping me see that some things that seem impossible just need a second look. I encourage anyone in search of a new direction to reach out to her! -Facebook review

I have been working with Tracy for a few months now and can tell you she is an experienced, knowledgeable, and compassionate coach. She has the ability to ask probing questions in a disarming manner which allowed me to look deep within myself to discover the issues I needed to deal with. She is very encouraging, yet she also provides a measure of accountability which helps keep me on track. I highly recommend Tracy to anyone seeking the assistance of a life coach. - Google review.

I found Tracy at a time in my life where I was so unhappy because I felt stuck in my (now former) job. Thanks to her guidance and expertise, I have recently started a new chapter in my life and it feels great to have the "happy me" back again. I am forever grateful for Tracy, and I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anybody!
Dale K., Tallmadge, Ohio
From the very first phone call I had with Tracy, I could tell that she was someone I could trust. As a coach, she has a way of maintaining that fine balance between encouraging a client and keeping that client on task and accountable when it comes to goals. I can happily say that she has helped me immensely with my professional development, and that it is a pleasure to work with her! - Google review
Tam P., Perry, Ohio
Because of Tracy's professionalism, experience, dedication and compassion, I am now actually moving forward instead of doing circles. Working with her has been an absolute joy. Her sense of humor is refreshing and her guidance, direct. She's inspired me to dig deep and be the "me" I once left behind. I highly recommend her to anyone dealing with a family member struggling with mental illness or to anyone wanting to make positive changes in his/her own life. Her insight is amazing. I am so thankful to have met her. If anyone can help another move forward, it's Tracy. - Thumbtack review

Tracy has been instrumental in helping me plan and implement goals. With her help, I have improved my ability to stay on track with these. I feel so much better about myself because of the accomplishments I’ve made since she helped me.
Donna K., Painesville, Ohio
Tracy has been a blessing and lifeline for me over the last three years. Her coaching has been very supportive and understanding in regards to problems like having boundaries in my life and making better choices. Tracy keeps me on track in dealing with my professional life too. “Moving Forward” was the right choice for her business name. It fits perfectly. Thanks to Tracy’s guidance, I am in control of my life instead of my life controlling me.
Mark B., Painesville, Ohio
I want to express my sincere thanks to Tracy for all her help this past year. Her life coaching has helped me gain the confidence to achieve my goals and jump start my new career. Her insight and knowledge have been extremely valuable to my growth as a person and a professional. I am very grateful.
Kelly D., Mentor, Ohio
Sometimes we all need a coach! I'd never sought a counselor or coach before, but when my job was suddenly eliminated, I knew I needed guidance in my next career search. Tracy is patient and supportive. She doesn't push; she encourages. Her insights helped me refine my career goals. I'm very happy that our paths crossed. I look forward to keeping in touch as I start my new career. - Thumbtack review
