My Approach to Helping

I specialize in working with male clients, ages 9-25. Guys tend to be more open to a blend of coaching with therapy.

I focus on building skills in mental toughness, emotional intelligence, leadership, confidence, healthy relationships, and academicathletic performance. The issues I most commonly see with clients are low self-esteemconfidence, anxiety, depression (including Bipolar disorder), and video game addiction.

- As Co-Owner @ Think-diff Institute, I will either answer right away or get back to you same day, GUARANTEED
- We are also on Facebook - search for Think-diff Institute

At THINK-diff Institute, we utilized lighting, furniture configurations, and color create an environment that provides comfort and choice. The result is a place where each client matters, and the space reflects that belief.

More Info About My Practice

My main goal is to validate each client's position from the start and fully understand their world from their perspective. I then utilize a nice mixture of therapeutic skills and motivational techniques to improve thought processes and get positive results. Each client wants to feel better, through this approach they will.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

This happens a lot, and at times, life coaching can either be an appropriate alternative to therapy (unless significant mental health distress is taking place), or utilized in conjunction with therapy. Life coaching tends to be more flexible, motivational, and goal driven, and can help certain clients who may not feel comfortable with the idea of therapy. If you start with life coaching, you may love it! And if the path towards your life coaching goals is blocked by deeper emotional or psychological issues, we can discuss a therapy treatment plan that will fit your goals. Either way, the client gets the service and care they need.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

The space used for coaching and therapy can make a huge difference on comfort levels, connection, and results. Also, within a maximum of three sessions, the client should have a gut feeling about whether it is a good fit, so listen to your gut!
