My Expert Service
I offer fast, action-oriented help to my clients. I am a fast typist who will not waste your time. Using cognitive/behavioral techniques, I will get to the root of the issue and help you set goals and create a realistic plan to tackle and resolve your problem. I may also incorporate rational/emotive, and insight-oriented techniques as appropriate. I use the “brief therapy” model for one-time interactions, and I also offer ongoing sessions to assist with deeper issues.
I can offer assistance with relationships, anxiety/stress, parenting, divorce, anger issues, communication, depression, grief, ACOA, and more. I specialize in areas that may be uncomfortable to discuss, such as infidelity and sexuality issues (gay/lesbian/fetishes). I offer a safe, non-judgemental space in which to tackle any issue.
I know it can be a challenge to remember everything under the time pressure of a chat, so you may email me after the session for free follow-up.
Hours may vary, depending on my workload.
What is Cognitive Coaching?
To put it simply, I will teach you to recognize the relationship between your thoughts and the feelings that you attach to them, both consciously and subconsciously. I will empower you to change those feelings and also to recognize power that you hand over to other people/situations and how you can take it back.If appropriate, we will also do some insight-oriented work to give you a chance to vent and to look at how the past may be affecting the present and future. I may also use rational/emotive techniques to help you do a reality check and to challenge destructive internal voices.
I am a doctor of psychology and a professional life coach who can provide a roadmap to guide you through life’s confusion. I won't tell you what you should do; I will help you analyze your issue and find the answers within yourself. Humans are gifted with free will. Let me empower you to make positive changes in your life.
There are important differences between in-person and online coaching sessions. While online work has some advantages, it also has limitations. While I follow ethical guidelines with regard to confidentiality, the online environment has its own inherent risks. Please be aware that there is no way to guarantee confidentiality when using the internet. If there is any risk that you might hurt yourself or someone else, please call 911 or a help line for immediate assistance.
