My Approach to Helping
I believe you are reading this now because you are at an important turning point in your life, your marriage, your relationship. How many times have you thought about making a change, getting some help, finding someone who will listen without judgment? Have you been frustrated in the past with therapy that is long on talk and short on practical tools that you can apply to really resolving your challenges? You will not find this in our work together. It will be action oriented and include homework to reinforce the work we do in our sessions together.
The decision to seek counseling, therapy, or life coaching either as an individual, couple or family can absolutely change your life.
It is my honor to have the opportunity to listen as you share the experience of your life and we will work together to determine what is working well and you should continue, what may need to be examined and adjusted, and what may need to be discarded. I enjoy working with adults and adolescents individually, as part of a couple, family, or group.
My work is centered in 3 area, Couples' and Family Therapy, Life Coaching, and Individual Counseling. In my work with Couples and Families I focus on repairing connection, improving communication, and reigniting passion. As a Life Coach I partner with my clients to transform their lives through values clarification, identifying self-limiting beliefs, goal structuring, and accountability. My work with Individuals is best described as "real" and "active". I am not the "blank slate therapist" who does not react or respond to what you are saying. I will provide input based on my experience and I often offer homework in the form of handouts and suggested books. Participation is not a prerequisite to working with me , but i find that clients who do so make more rapid and sometimes greater progress.
