Congratulations for taking the first step towards the life you want! I am a transcendental and phenomenological based coach and therapist with expertise in numerous sub-specialties including solution focused and strength based change, CBT, Hypnosis. Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Trauma Focused Therapy and just plain old talking and listening!!
I am “seasoned”, which is a nice way of saying “older” than most of my fellow therapists and coaches here. I mention this as a plus for you. I have thousands of hours of experience, training, and education, like most of us do. What sets me aside is the “wisdom” I have accumulated from my many years on planet earth! I even had a dinosaur for pet! As you can probably tell, I believe that humor along with that wisdom is an important part of what I have to offer you.
The most challenging part of the journey is often reaching out and recognizing that you need support along the way. You may have found E-Therapy Café because you are looking for guidance making an important decision or getting through a challenging time. Perhaps, your desired outcome is to grow self-esteem, strengthen relationships or improve your quality of life. Maybe you are seeking to change undesirable patterns or behaviors that are holding you back.
What ever brought you here, please know that I will meet you exactly where you are. My main objective is to provide you with a relationship where you are not only heard and seen but truly valued for your uniqueness. In order for you to progress toward change, you need to know that you are working in a non-judgmental space. I will patiently listen, assess what you say, and explore what that means for YOU. I may not offer you any magical or instantaneous feedback. I am not a magician. Rather I am someone who is here to provide you a place to get your footing in life in a way that ultimately will work for YOU. I am here simply for you.
As your therapist or coach, I have the honor of guiding you on your journey to create the life you envision. Although change is often what people seek when entering therapy, acceptance is sometimes an unexpected but welcomed discovery along the way. So come, talk it out, and take what you need from what I offer. I look forward to “meeting you!”.
