I integrate priciples from the fields of Solution Oriented Coaching , Ericksonian Hypnosis, NLP and Meridian Based Energy Work (Attractor Field Therapy Emotional Freedom Technique and Thought Field Therapy) within a holistic framework. It is important to balance the need for change and growth with the need for acceptance and love as imperfect beings. We can work in brief or longer term formats in either a therapy or coaching style depending on your needs.
When working with couples I integrate the Mars - Venus Approach, many of the ideas of John Gottman with extensive training in family and couples therapy.
When working with business owners and executives we work in a pragmatic fashion integrating the need for measurable results with the recognitiion that the self of the executive is his or her most valuable asset.
Treatment and Coaching plans are always discussed. Clients are encouraged to be fully involved in defining their own goals and the level of intervention with which they are comfortable.
Confidentiality is always maintained.
