In 2004, I opened my psychotherapy practice, working with individuals and couples improve their relationships, overcome depression and anxiety, become sober from addictions, and heal from trauma. As a Psychotherapist, my focus was on treating mental illness, and helping individuals and couples improve their lives by treating and resolving symptoms of mental health disorders.
effective psychotherapy changes your life. Your symptoms resolve, you begin to heal, and soon, you are ‘getting better’. In time, your needs and desires change. No longer in need of psychotherapy per se, questions start to arise, such as "How do I continue my personal growth? How do I increase my happiness and maintain contentment? How do I define and reach new life goals?" At this stage, you are ready for life coaching.
In life coaching, I do not focus on diagnosing and treating mental illness. Life coaching focuses on individual & relational growth, life & professional change, and increasing happiness & satisfaction. No longer doctor and patient, the coaching relationship is a partnership, a relationship between equals. We work as partners, focused on your future, on creating the life you want to lead, and on doing what is necessary to achieve your new life goals.
TO AFFECT CHANGE, I OFFER BOTH INDIVIDUAL and couples COACHING, AND TIME-LIMITED ONE-ON-ONE TRAININGs. TRAINING MODULES focus on LIFE SKILLS and PROFESSIONAL success, AND INCLUDe SELF-AWARENESS, ASSERTIVENESS, COMMUNICATION, RELATIONAL SKILLS, TIME MANAGEMENT, MOTIVATIONAL ENHANCEMENT, AND MORE.

it is reasonable to expect that coaching can HELP you dramatically change your life. coaching can assist you to BECOME BETTER AT WHAT you DO, OR help you build new SKILLS to help with what you STRUGGLE WITH. you may think, ‘MY COACH WILL HELP ME BE BETTER AT MY PROFESSION, THEREFORE MY GOAL OF INCREASING MY INCOME WILL BE REALIZED.’ OR, ‘I NEED TO GET MORE DONE IN LESS TIME. MY COACH WILL HELP ME DO THIS.’ OR, ‘I struggle in my RELATIONSHIPS, BOTH PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY. MY COACH WILL HELP ME IMPROVE MY ABILITY TO HAVE SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIPS.’ THESE areas are essential, and all can be successfully addressed through coaching. I don’t need to know what you do to help you do it better. You already know how to do what it is you do. coaching ignites a creative spark, bringing with it fresh strategies, new ideas, and new ways to improve. Working with a coach is interactive, and I will challenge you in ways you do not challenge yourself. I will help you see opportunities when you may see none. Life coaching is about creating a trusting, supportive relationship - one in which you feel comfortable making necessary changes to improve your life.
