Coaching

Coaching is the act of guiding a person to achieve a specific goal, either professional or personal. Although therapists and coaches have similar approaches, coaches are typically more direct and have more frequent contact with clients than therapists, and focus on the specific goal at hand, rather than seeking the root of an issue. If you have a specific goal you'd like a professional perspective on, coaching might be a good step. Contact one of TherapyDen’s coaching experts today!

I typically use coaching techniques to assist clients undergoing child custody evaluations or social studies in family court or family law cases to make the most thorough and effective presentations. I am familiar with what is required in these cases, and by using coaching and teaching techniques I can often ensure that my client is the best prepared parent at the courthouse. Evaluators themselves are also pleased when my clients are well prepared because it makes the evaluator's job easier. Due to modern technology, I can typically provide these services nationwide.

A Therapeutic Coach can help you move past obstacles in your life and help you to discover the choices you have available within you for success. By clearing limiting beliefs, values or decisions you have made in your past you may open doorways to a richer and fuller life, now. Some of the blocks that we put in our path may not always be in our conscious awareness.

What is the goal of a good coach? Educate the team. Determine the strengths. Reveal the weaknesses. Create a plan of action. Encourage the team. Explain and train. Create accountability. Measure and track improvement. Discuss obstacles and intervene with solutions. Talk it out and walk it out-shoulder to shoulder. Check-in and check-on. Explore the unknown strengths. Apply experienced wisdom. Share the magic. Instill the desire to win. Unify the team. Apply the pep-share in the victory.

I use solutions-focused coaching which focuses on helping my clients find solutions rather than problems, building on strengths rather than weaknesses and finding positive ways forward rather than examining barriers. Goal is redirect energy So that one feels motivated and energised rather than de-motivated and demoralized.

The difference between coaching and therapy is that therapy takes someone that is below baseline and brings them up to baseline and then beyond. Coaching takes someone that is at baseline up higher. The same skills I use in therapy can be applied to coaching. I have trained to become a life coach and specialize in sex and relationships; however, I can coach you on any area of your life you need coaching.

Coaching for Career change or Life transitions can help people get past feelings of stuck, overwhelm, uncertainty or grief. Through coaching it is possible to identify strengths and interests to guide you into the next part of your life.

Taking new steps, trying new skills and changing behaviors takes courage.

A coaching informed therapy practice assumes that a client is the expert in her own unique needs, desires, motivations, and drives. It assumes a growth orientation and allows clients to select their own goals and prioritize treatment objectives. I also provide coaching and consultation to private practice therapists looking to launch, grow, and re-tool their practices.

Rather than practicing from a medical or mental illness model, coaching focuses on strengths and wellness. I strive to work with a client's natural strengths, learn from them about their children, and educate them in methods that work with their children's needs to improve overall parenting and address specific behaviors that are causing stress in the home.

I am certified as a Creative Grief Support Practitioner, or as I like to call myself-a Grief Coach. Grief Coaching also allows me to work with you regardless of what state you live in. As your coach, I can work with you anywhere. Grief coaching looks like helping you find your strengths so you can navigate the mess of grief. Grief coaching looks like having someone walk beside you through your process. Remember, I have been in similar shoes, you don't have to do this alone.

I've coached people in relaxation since I was 12 years old, before any of my professional trainings-you can say I'm a natural!

I have been using conversational coaching techniques for over 13 years with co-workers and clients to create personal and professional successes. Coaching and healing are definitely my calling...
