Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and/or professional potential. I help people improve their performance and enhance the quality of their relationships without the requirement to find an ‘illness’ or ‘diagnosis’ as the cause of the problem.
Life Coaching is defined as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and/or professional potential. Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Coaches help people improve their performance and enhance the quality of their relationships without the requirement to find an ‘illness’ or ‘diagnosis’ as the cause of the problem. Coaching can be performed by a clinically trained therapist with specialized training in a solution focused counseling/coaching approaches leading to insight development and behavioral change. Coaching does not meet the criteria for a “medical treatment” and thus is not covered by private insurance, but as the service is provided by a licensed professional it may qualify as a tax deductible medical expense. An affordable cash pay fee scale is available for those desiring coaching services instead of/or after Professional Counseling (therapy) is concluded. Life Coaching is by far the easiest, most secure and most enjoyable way for us to work together as it allows us increased freedoms of time, place and techniques that are more limited when insurance regulations must be followed. Coaching can occur at any of my private office locations including the therapeutic farm, but it can also include a walk on the beach, a visit to a garden, kayak trip, visit to nature preserve, yoga studio or an intensive weekend retreat. Counseling clients who have a high deductible or large copayments are encouraged to consider entering into a coaching relationship instead of limiting yourself to the “box” your insurance company will put you and I both in that governs your work if you seek reimbursement for fees through your insurance company.
Why We Should Work Together
Working from a holistic model of treatment, integrating mental and spiritual health/wellness with medical care, art, yoga, animals and the natural world is my specialty of practice. The client that is tired of being tired and unfulfilled or tired of being sick and tired and wants a real relationship that goes beyond "tell me how you feel today" is the person who will enjoy working with me. I utilize evidence-based treatment strategies but combine them in dynamic and engaging ways that make it possible for clients to heal body, mind and spirit while learning critical relationship skills with humans and the natural world. As a licensed clinician, clinical supervisor, counselor educator, author, presenter and innovator in the field of experiential therapy, I have the seasoning and expertise to guide you down the path to wholeness and wellness which is very different than just treating illnesses. Please join me on the journey.
