You will be guided in accessing your own inner wisdom where you are able to resolve life’s problems on your own.
After identifying the areas of your life in need of action and/or attention I will provide recommendations about the services that I feel will be most supportive to you.
You will receive tools and strategies to purposefully move forward toward the changes you envision.
During the coaching process you will be held accountable to a practical plan that is created especially for you.
I promise you my heartfelt support, understanding and honesty throughout the journey.
Whether you’re dealing with a specific topic or issue or just seeking general guidance, our relationship will continue to evolve in a way that best supports you.
I use a spiritually integrated approach.
This is especially effective for those overcoming addictions and building a new way of life in recovery. I bring myself as I am, and I ask that you do the same.
I bring my clinical background combined with a compassionate yet dynamic coaching style.
This creates a safe, authentic space to work with any emotional issues or patterns that are holding you back while moving toward solution-oriented real-life results.
This 5-line model is used to express the spiritual psychology perspective:
PHYSICAL WORLD REALITY = tangible “stuff” including how you use your body, spend time with, eat/drink/sleep patterns etc
MENTAL = thoughts, ideas, beliefs about right and wrong, moral and values
EMOTIONAL = feelings, emotions, and how we relate to emotions
UNCONSCIOUS = the urges, feelings, thoughts and memories that we are not consciously aware of, yet influence our behavior and experiences.
SPIRITUAL REALITY = LOVE/LOVING peace, compassion, freedom, beauty, joy etc. and where the “Authentic Self” resides. There is no judgment, upset, fear, blame or pain at this level.
I also utilize a variety of additional psychodynamic approaches including:
- Person-centered (Rogerian) Therapy
- Gestalt (based on the work of Fritz Perls)
- Rational-Emotive Therapy (pioneered by Albert Ellis).
- Motivational Interviewing
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
- Mindful Awareness practices
