Helping the Helper

 

What if you had access to a therapist that first, completely understood your profession and secondly, understood how to help you with your relationships?  This could potentially change your life. It could restore the passion for the work you do and restore the passion you once had in your relationships. I have been in practice for 18 years. I have been able to interact with all sorts of helping professionals. I have found that we professionals struggle as well with life challenges. We don't have to be perfect and that's completely okay. Here is what I can offer you.

 

Privacy 

As a helping professional privacy is important. This means that we will meet where you feel most comfortable. We can meet at your office, my office, your home or another place of your choosing. 


Weekly sessions

Sometimes I plan sessions on a bimonthly basis. Because you are a helping professional and your time is important we will plan to maximize meetings so you can get the help you need as well as complete therapy in a timely manner.


Priority Email Reply
You may consult with me via email at any time during the week. Because I am able to receive emails on both my computer and smart phone, email response is usually quick. If I am in session when you email, I will respond when I am able.


Priority Text Message Response
You may consult with me via text message at any time during the week. If I am in session when you text, I will respond when I am able.

Why you may want to connect with me

 

You want to have access to me whenever you feel the need.

 


You value your emotional health and the benefits of reducing the effects of burnout, compassion fatigue and difficult relationship and want to create positive relationships in your life.

 

 

You don't want to be labeled with a psychiatric diagnosis.

 


You want the convenience of meeting at a location of your choosing.

 


You want your personal history to remain confidential. I can control my own files and records, but I can't control what happens at an insurance company.

 


You want the power to choose your own therapist instead of being limited to a list of names on an insurance company's list


 

If you've ever thought to yourself, "there's gotta be an easier way...am I going crazy...why won't these kids just do what they're told..." you are not alone. Thousands of parents and families over thousands of years have struggled with parenting. So know that you are not alone!

If you are a divorced parent trying to co-parent with a former partner who you may or may not get along with, parenting gets even more difficult. Divorce is not just emotionally hard on you, it's also hard on kids.

 

Parenting is possibly the one area in life that we are supposed to just do when a baby shows up. We are supposed to take what we learned in our own upbringing and just transfer that to the next generation.

Well, if you grew up in a home with absent parents...abusive siblings...no boundaries, what you see as effective parenting could be a very skewed. Add opinionated friends and in-laws and things could feel hopeless for you as a parent.

Many professions have coaches and business consultants attached to them. This is because no one is simply born an expert. People become experts over time and then share their knowledge with others. I believe parenting is no different.

As a parenting and family coach, I value your expertise on your family. You are the one who was there from the beginning. This is the thing that often creates blind spots which I can help with. 

I offer something unique. You don't come to me, I come to you. I make myself available for a 1-5 day hands on experience. I will coach you and your family on how to interact appropriately with one another. You can get back to loving your kid rather than controlling and demanding things from them. 

Whether you have a high-conflict relationship or no conflict at all let's talk more and get your family relationships back on track!
