Being the most flexible and multifaceted approach in my practice, this allows for the use of a myriad of approaches to address my clients most current pressing needs. In combination with other therapeutic modalities, it allows for the client to have more autonomy and to build upon what I call 'your very own toolbox of skills' to derive from when they are out in the world.
CBT is focused on helping clients deal with a very specific problem. In my experience, I have helped clients work through issues with their anxiety, anger, depression, emotional roadblocks relating to career transitions or relationship issues.
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
Much of my work has been supporting individuals who are currently in the throes of a change in their family dynamic. Helping a client balance the challenges of being a single parent and reestablishing a relationship with former spouse and navigating supporting their children after divorce are aspects that I feel where the life coaching perspective can be greatly beneficial.
Self-esteem issues may arise in all of us at some point in our lives. Many of us come into counseling with negative schemas that we struggle to let go of. These are thoughts we have been battling for years sometimes and my hope is to support my clients to delve deep into these and access their inner strength so that they can tap into their internal joy and be inspired to attain cadence.
As we embark on our path, things come up and get in the way of our ability to tap into our internal joy. I help clients in managing their anxiety through elements of CBT, mindfulness, feasible goal setting and accountability.
Many of us experience periods in our lives where we feel stuck and I truly honor those individuals who are willing to come forward and say that they are tired of the daily struggles and that they need help. Through a collaborative approach, my hope is to guide clients into accessing the necessary tools that reside inside of them as a way to propel them forward.
