The purpose of the coaching is to help an individual move forward and make changes in whatever ways they need assistance. Although coaching and other forms of therapy have much in common, they are sometimes differentiated by assertion that coaches work with healthy individuals to help them achieve their full potential and therapists (or counselors) work with clients suffering from mental illness or mental health problems. A client and a coach will generally set very specific goals that will focus on enhancing performance, improving relationships (personal or professional), or accomplishing a specific objective.

I utilize Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) for children ages 2-6 with behavior problems such as tantrums, defiance and aggression toward others. The 15-week course of therapy focuses on relationship enhancement as well as discipline strategies to improve behavior, and emphasizes concrete skill-building, live parent coaching and home practice.
Coaching allows one to bring about positive changes in their life more quickly and efficiently than they might on their own. Coaching makes use of collaborative goal formation, problem solving and accountability.
I have received training at the Coaches Training Institute in San Rafael, CA in the co-active coaching model.
Some of my clients need support in exploring their values, career directions, or simply making progress in a part of their life they feel stuck on. This work is not always therapy for a mental health disorder nor might it constitute a \'therapy relationship\' at all. If you want coaching help, we should discuss how coaching is different from therapy and figure out which type of help you need!
Do you need help crafting your next goal?\nAre you looking for your vision or mission in life?\nAre you at a crossroads?\nDo you know what you want, but you need someone to hold you accountable?\n\nI work with individuals and small groups, and I have a wide variety of tools and processes that will help you get where you want to go!
I am a Certified Life Coach with two years of training from the International LIfe Coaching Foundation. I am trained in Personal Growth, Business Development, Communication, and Goal Achievement. I have been providing individual, group and business coaching for 10 years.
My approach to psychotherapy includes coaching in the acquisition and application of cognitive behavioral and relationship skills. As well, I offer a coaching program for moms who do not need therapy but simply want to learn additional skills to enhance their work as mothers, partners, and career women.
Coaching is another way of describing problem solving. It is generally delivered by someone who has experienced the very thing they are assisting with. The coach has mastered both information and technique and can use the experience thus gained to help others do their best in the field of endeavor. Let me be a source of experience for you to draw on as you work to make your family uniquely yours!
Much of my therapeutic approach is derived from the life coaching perspective. We return to our common connections by loving, honoring and valuing ourselves and others. Wonder, curiosity and inquiry are the source of all learning. I believe awareness is the precursor to choice. Finally, contribution based on purpose generates true fulfillment and that connection is the wellspring of creativity
Coaching is a partnership of equals whose aim is to achieve speedy, increased and sustainable effectiveness. Coaching raises self-awareness and identifies choices. Working to the client’s agenda, the coach and the client have the sole aim of closing the gaps between potential and performance. -- Jenny Rogers
With the current state of the world, sometimes results need to be immediate. We don't always have time to explore the roots of our challenges. Coaching can be a great way to tackle a problem at face value and get it taken care of and behind you.
I am currently transitioning to a coaching model of therapy in which I help clients identify specific life goals and focus on what they want in their lives as opposed to remaining stuck in problems. I have training in Solution-Focused Therapy and have studied Positive Psychology and coaching techniques to incorporate into my work with clients.
Coaching techniques include clarifying your values and goals and the action steps that will bring these goals to life.
Life coaching shifts the stories we tell about ourselves and each other away from pathology, aka the something here is bad/wrong story line. I am a counselor with 17 years experience but have found that we are all most powerful when we tell our stories from 'what matters and what works' instead. I invite you to experience this radically yet subtly different frame of reference with me.
Life changes - both positive and negative - can cause people undue stress, which often manifests itself in inertia or unwanted behavior. I work with clients to help them explore and own their strengths and areas for growth.
The neurobehavioral model coaches parents and caregivers on how to effectively support their loved one by understanding the brain - behavior connection. Within this model are concrete tools for the parent to practice and then implement at home.
