My belief is that you as the client are the expert on the challenges you face, and my job is working with you to find the answers to them. This means examining your current situation rather than the past, helping you decide where you want to go, and following a plan to get there.
I take a solution-focused approach to help my clients identify goals, figure out what has helped in the past, prioritize goals, and reach them in an effective and efficient manner. This is similar to the process used in life coaching. Whether you’re dealing with stress, anxiety, anger, depression, career issues, relationships, or wellness and lifestyle issues, I can work with you to develop a strategy for dealing with them that works. Some of the approaches I use in working with my clients:
- Brief solution-focused therapy
- Career, life, and wellness coaching
- Relationship communication
- Marital and pre-marital counseling
- Teaching relaxation techniques
- Anger management
- Mindfulness training
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Hypnotherapy (Coming October 2016)
I provide tele-counseling and tele-coaching across the state of Illinois using secure videoconferencing platforms and messaging, as well as working face to face with clients in my Warrenville, Illinois office.
