I strive to offer teenagers and adults a place where they can be themselves and be open about their lives and struggles without being judged or dismissed. Believing that each person is more unique than any program, I employ relevant interventions designed to fit the person where they are at and best engage his or her heart.
The goal is not only to relieve symptoms, but to address core heart issues that lead to real healing. Not simply a surface change in behavior, but having a solution-focused approach to counseling empowered by the wisdom, truth and love of God. I strive to utilize my experience and training to help people build strategies toward improved emotional, physical, social and spiritual health.
I offer a unique approach to meet a client where they are at. Striving to either weave or use separately the elements of counseling, mentoring and life-coaching.
1. Counseling allows the emotional, spiritual, physical and mental dimensions of ones history and here & now to be explored in an effort to gain clarity of how they can better process and live life.
2. Mentoring, particularly with teens, is an opportunity to have someone come along side of them during a difficult time of uncertainty, struggle or lack of role models in their life and help give guidance.
3. Life-Coaching is more goal-oriented. Helping to build a personalized strategy that focuses on a client’s ability to accomplish tasks. Assisting in gathering information and considering new directions.
This three-fold model allows clients to address a wider spectrum of needs. Weaving these into a single strand of strength that focuses on a persons personality, mindset, passions, abilities, and character. Addressing life's challenges in one time and space, in relationship with one person, with trust, support and commitment.
