My Practice

Psy­chother­apy and Rela­tion­ship, Life and Busi­ness Coaching

Psy­chother­apy is dif­fer­ent from pro­fes­sional coach­ing. I may refer a ther­apy patient to a coach as an adjunct to ther­apy. I refer a coach­ing client to another men­tal health pro­fes­sional when indi­cated. I do not change a ther­apy patient to a coach­ing client, or change a coach­ing client to a ther­apy patient.

My Approach

Both ther­apy and coach­ing are of any dura­tion and/or length: cri­sis, short-term, long-term, or open-ended. My ori­en­ta­tion is inte­gra­tive. My approach is human­is­tic, psy­cho­an­a­lytic, psy­cho­dy­namic and includes cog­ni­tive behav­ioral tech­niques as appro­pri­ate and practical.

I care­fully con­sider the needs and pref­er­ences of each per­son. I do not have a for­mula or one-size-fits-all approach. To me, the fit and match between the ther­apy patient or coach­ing client and con­sul­tant is a major deter­mi­nant of suc­cess. This con­clu­sion is based on empir­i­cal research.
