My Approach to Helping
I believe our experiences influence our perceptions of the world and how we interact with others. These perceptions impact how we feel, what we think and the way we act. Becoming aware of that gives us a better understanding of our unhealthy patterns, which are really just habits. With the help of counseling, these habits can change and new approaches to existing problems can be discovered. A problem is not the problem; previously attempted solutions that no longer work are the problem. Collaborating to find new solutions is how I approach counseling and coaching with my clients. As for parent coaching, I've spent the better part of a decade helping parents engage with their kids in ways that get kids to listen, decrease family tension, and increase positive behaviors. I welcome the chance to do the same for you.
