My Approach:

The counseling/coaching relationship provides a unique opportunity that allows you to focus on YOU… not on the outer world and all life’s chores, responsibilities, expectations and daily distractions. This is a safe place for introspection, analysis and evaluating personal progress. This sacred time is set aside for you to safely explore important areas of your life or current stressors. You can feel open to experience your emotions with gentleness, curiosity, and increasing self-awareness. As you more clearly identify your goals, values and hopes, you can set your intention on achieving your best self. This practice leads to living a more “value-driven life” rather than a life that is in response to daily stimuli and stressors. In this way you become more aligned with the truth of who we are.  Ultimately, it’s our relationship with ourselves that affects our relationships with others, and allows us to create a life that’s meaningful and fulfilling.

Present and past experiences have influenced your current emotions, thoughts and behaviors. As you begin to examine more mindfully the patterns of action (and inaction) you will begin to feel more empowered and confident to make shifts and gain a greater sense of control in your ability to move in a positive direction.

My therapeutic style is honest, direct, engaged, understanding, often challenging and highly collaborative. Genuine connection is of utmost importance to me. I will be an attentive listener while also looking for behavior patterns or thinking loops that may be holding you back. Often these “conditioned patterns” block growth.

Sometimes our barriers to happiness stem from feelings and deeply ingrained beliefs that are not necessarily true.  I like to help examine what “story” we may be telling ourselves or repeating over and over, with a new set of characters.

There is no single path towards expansion, change and healing. With that being said, I adjust my style and interventions to what works best for client’s individual needs.

THE BASIC BELIEF OF COACHING is that I believe you inherently know what’s best sometimes it has just been clouded over.  My role is to be a “thinking partner” and help you to find those answers within.  We all have an inner wisdom and the sense to know when we are living as our highest and best self. You’ll learn practices to relax and slow down and reconnect with yourself so you can begin to hear what your mind and head is telling you. This change may be uncomfortable at times. Often it happens in small steps or in one area of focus at a time, yet the process is surprisingly simple. I look forward to connecting with you as we work together to facilitate your unique journey.
