Coaching can benefit people in all professions
and from all walks of life.
Adult Clinical Practice:
We need support when we need it: when we’re feeling the pressure, during the crisis, when we’re feeling stuck. And the idea is to get supported before we react poorly, or miss the opportunity, or cause damage to our personal and professional relationships that is difficult to repair.
Online psychotherapy appointments allow communication when it’s most beneficial. I appreciate that, and I think you might too.
There is value in knowing why we behave in the ways we do, and even more so, I believe in the value of learning how to think and behave in new ways that bring us joy, satisfaction, and success; creating our lives intentionally as opposed to living reactively. We can delve into our childhoods to uncover the deeply embedded why, but I equally like to focus on the present moment, the here and now, to uncover the how.
How to move past what’s keeping us stuck so that we can move forward in the direction of our dreams.
Adult Coaching Practice:
Coaching can benefit people in all professions and from all walks of life. From corporate executives to aspiring artists to working writers, creative coaching can take your performance to the next level and beyond. Performing better within your corporate culture, managing bi-directionally-above your position and below- (yes! you do have to manage your boss as s/he manages you!), strategically leveraging your talents, skills, and abilities to land that promotion, start your own business, or create alternative income streams…all comes down to self-awareness or how well you handle you.
How your actions and interactions effect those around you, how others effect you, and how you affect yourself, all contribute to your successes as well as to your failures. How good are you at getting things done? Getting along with others? Tackling high-level problems? Remaining true to yourself and your own desires while performing within the context of your workplace? How good are you at managing day-to-day life while still actively working toward your long-term goals?
If you have trouble answering those questions (or don’t like the answers you are coming up with) you may want to give coaching a try.
Have you always wanted to write a book? Start a business? Build a website? Share your art with the world? Land that promotion? Get in better physical shape?
I’m here to help you do just that.
Children and Teens Clinical Practice:
As a parent, there is nothing more difficult than watching your child struggle.
Academics, peer relationships, anxiety, depression, social pressure, sexual identity, and body-image are just a few of the issues which can shake a young person’s confidence as they transition from child to adolescent to adult. As parents, we do our best to understand, support, and help our children along the way, but at times we can only do so much. For a number of reasons, our kids just can’t -or won’t- listen to what we have to say.
Working with a counselor helps to bridge that gap.
As a children’s therapist, my goal is to help your child understand him or herself better as they navigate the sometimes difficult and confusing process of growing up; and help you, as a parent, understand and communicate with your child better–helping your family function better as a whole.
Healing begins with good communication, and good communication begins at home. More about my practice dedicated to children and adolescents here.
Educational Support and Counseling for Children and Teens:
As a former school-based mental health counselor, I have worked with students of all ages, helping them to achieve academic success. Often times, children experience limited success at school due to emotional issues; and sometimes children experience emotional issues due to limited success at school.
Academic performance, peer relationships, behavioral issues, and emotional regulation are so intertwined, that a child cannot become fully successful unless all facets are addressed together. With educational counseling, we seek to collectively address all of those areas.
Based on principles of cognitive psychology, students learn to:
- Study smart instead of hard.
- Understand how to operate the “computer” inside their head for more efficient learning.
- “File” their learned information correctly, resulting in easy retrieval (and higher test grades) later.
- Anticipate test questions and testing conditions to reduce anxiety and decrease stress.
- Enjoy learning again!
