Everyone has room to grow - it is one of the joys of life! Coaching is all about being intentional about the direction you grow. It requires action, and generates results. We will explore your dreams and goals, and look for paths to reach them. We will look at your unique characteristics and how they can help you, both in your personal and professional life. We will agree on a schedule for meeting, and together we will set mini-goals for you to achieve between sessions. I will celebrate your successes with you and help hold you accountable for your progress.
Coaching can take place in person, by phone, or by e-mail. Note that I can not guarantee confidentiality by e-mail. You are responsible for payment at the time services are provided. Coaching is not covered by insurance. It may be a benefit offered by your employer.
Individual Counseling with Adolescents and Adults
Mental health counseling will start with an assessment. This is a time for us both to get to know one another. We will talk about what has been going on in your life, and I will determine if a diagnosis is appropriate. Then we will develop a plan together to determine what your goals are and the best way to reach those goals. Counseling consists primarily of talking things out, but doing so in ways that are known to help. I primarily use a type of counseling called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which looks at how thoughts, feelings, and actions are connected, and how we can use those connections to help you feel better. As part of CBT, I often give you things to think about or work on in between our appointments. This helps you get the most out of your time with me, and lets you see quicker results. If you agree, I also use Christian counseling, where we consider how your faith can strengthen you and help you reach your goals.
Counseling may be covered by health insurance plans. Please check with your insurer to see what your policy provides. You are responsible for payment at the time services are provided. I do not bill insurance companies directly, but can provide the information you need to submit a claim to your company.
I am available to be a speaker for small and large groups. I will work with you to tailor a presentation to your needs, in terms of time and topic. Sample topics include whole person wellness, spiritual wellness, stress reduction, the effects of media on girls' self-image, communication in relationships, and parenting.
I am available to provide supervision to counselors with an LPC license who are seeking independent licensure. You would need to be able to provide your own office space and clients. I am also available to provide supervision to counselors with an LPCC license who are seeking a supervisory endorsement.
