If you have experienced trauma, have done your therapy work and feel that you’ve made the transition from victim/victimized to survivor, I can help you move further down the road to thriver. If you have the lingering feeling that you’re not all the way back from the shadowlands of overwhelming experiences & terrible spaces, I can offer you specialized life coaching geared for your unique needs.
I want to help survivors move beyond surviving into thriving territory, but it is unethical to offer coaching to people who are actually in need of therapy, so we’ll do some assessment of your needs before we map out your coaching journey. We may have a somewhat longer personal interview before we contract for coaching. This is for client protection and adherence to ethical standards.
There are some strong boundary rules regarding dual relationships that attach to my mental health professional licensure. If you have questions about the difference, there is a blog post that addresses the difference between therapy and counseling on this site. I’m happy to answer any relevant questions you might have.
I cannot provide both therapy and coaching to clients, and there is a minimum two-year rule separating the roles, so a client must be done with counseling or coaching for at least two years before we could discuss working together in another capacity.
You’ve already lived through the fire. I don’t want to cause more pain; I want to help you heal and move into an exuberantly thriving, satisfying life…so we’ll be extra careful here and make sure that you’re receiving the specific services you need and deserve.
