Vulnerability begets vulnerability;
may mine create a safe space for yours

We are all called to rise.

My health is just one area that has challenged me in a multitude of ways and even though I still stumble sometimes, I am able to rise again (and again) by using the tools I teach my clients

  • try to implement coping strategies but when I'm so upset I forget to use them or they frustrate me

  • am open to an alternative treatment protocol for my symptoms 

counseling or coaching, which one do I need?

I am a trained professional in both fields but honestly, everyone who comes to me will get a good dose of life coaching. Why? Because it is a refreshing approach that is engaging, effective, experiential and clients naturally lean in to it. You will experience how a coach views the client differently than a more traditional psychotherapist because I will:

  • treat you as though you are already creative, whole and resourceful; not broken or needing to be fixed

  • see you as the expert and help you discover and tap into what you already might know

  • ask you creative, often different types of questions to help you more quickly identify obstacles, patterns or opportunities

  • interact and engage with you at your pace and not hold a personal agenda

  • pull from a variety of tools, approaches, skills and experiences to see what you connect with. You are not a one-size-fits-all!

While all my clients will experience coaching techniques, coaching-specific clients will not get a taste of therapy. Life coaching does not diagnose, treat or work with symptoms of traumatic stress, depression or other more debilitating manifestations of dis-ease. Read through the following differences to help determine what you are looking for:

THERAPY CLIENTS ARE:

-Feeling unsettled, anxious or depressed

-Looking for healing 

-Trying to recover from a stressor or trauma

-Wanting to understand themselves more deeply

-Wanting tools and skills to help find relief

-Looking to increase confidence, esteem and control

AND:

Clients are in the state of Colorado where I am registered to work

COACHING CLIENTS ARE: 

                       

-Wanting to reach a specific goal

-Focusing on the present time and the future 

-Looking for direction and next steps

-Wanting clarity, a sense of purpose or a vision

-In transition 

-Eager for what is next, but might be stuck

AND:

Clients can be nationwide and I work in person, over the phone or through video conferencing
