My Approach to Helping
HELPING PEOPLE DISCOVER NEW POSSIBILITIES! Do you want: Help overcoming challenges or issues your are facing? Help to experience more fulfilling and meaningful relationships? Help addressing anxiety, fear, depression or self esteem issues? Help with child mood /behavior problems? Help working through major life transitions? Help discovering your life passion, vision and goals? Help making a career change? I provide a supportive, non-judgmental, and confidential place where you can discover, learn and grow. We work together to explore issues and develop solutions to fit your needs so that you can experience a healthier and happier life.
My specialty areas include 1) working with couples to create a more fulfilling and meaningful relationship, 2) working with women and teenage girls to overcome depression, anxiety, fear, and self esteem issues, 3) working with children/adolescents who have mood or behavior problems and provide support for parents, 4) providing coaching for career, vision and purpose, workplace issues, & leadership.
Imagine a counseling relationship where the total focus is on you, what you want in life, what will help you achieve it, and where you are listened to and accepted without judgment.
I am trained in several methodologies and techniques and tailor my approach to best meet the needs of each client. All methods rely on the motivation of the client to be an active partner in the counseling or coaching relationship. These practical and solution focused methods combine deep learning with action orientation. I believe in people's inherent strength and wisdom, in people's ability to make difficult choices, and in people's ability to make positive changes in their lives.
The values that guide my counseling and coaching are: compassion, respect, non-judgment, partnership, trust, fairness, adventure, curiosity, connection, continual learning, creativity, joy and spirituality.
