My Approach to Helping
I help people become more aware of how they interact with others. Specifically, I work with individuals and groups within companies who are seeking to understand and establish better working relationships and communication. By providing consulting in leadership and employee motivation and satisfaction for small businesses and other organizations, I help improve productivity and increase the bottom line within organizations. My methodology includes helping to increase production; develop cooperation, collaboration and increased motivation; and to elicit employee trust and create a culture of benevolence, consistency, and integrity to build greater satisfaction within the workplace. Having witnessed the many fluctuations that altered the landscape of organizations by seismic proportions - most notably the significant executive leadership changes and corporate downsizing at the onset of and the duration of the 2008 financial crisis - I am passionate about introducing emotional intelligence into the workplace at all levels of the organization.
More Info About My Practice
My research includes detailed analysis on how to build trust in organizations. Working with and helping people is of great interest to me, and I am passionate about creating working environments that are conducive to being enjoyable and satisfying, and, at the same time, productive and profitable.
I am also a certified grief counselor from The American Academy of Grief Counseling (AAGC) through the American Institute of Health Care Professionals (AIHCP). As a grief counselor, I take a non-traditional approach to helping people cope with grief. Grieving is an individual process and each person's timeline is different. I help people understand and grieve at their own pace.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Helping people recognize their behaviors with others. Many times, people act in certain ways in which they are accustomed but frequently fail to learn how other people receive information. Many times it works against a purpose to treat others how you want to be treated. Rather, by understanding what makes others "tick", people often get better results - in communication and overall goal achievement.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
Having experience life altering events - including significant deaths of loved ones - I have learned many lessons during my journey. I feel that my experiences, both personally and professionally, have lead me to my path and purpose. Life is very short and it is extremely important to be compassionate to yourself and others. By virtue of my own life experiences in additional to my education and practice background, I feel I am in a unique position to help others on their journey. Change is good and knowing that there are opportunities to seize after struggles occur is life altering!
