Through individualized executive coaching, you and I can identify your unique talents and your greatest strengths, developing customized strategies to help you maximize your potential.
Likewise, the evidence-based and psychology-driven practices of executive coaching also enable you and me to identify your individual challenges, those specific areas which may be undermining your professional success, blocking your path toward excellence.
And once we have identified those challenging areas, again, we can develop individualized, highly specific, and highly effective solutions to overcome them.
For mental health issues, such as depression, trauma and anxiety, face-to-face therapy is important. It's the more intimate setting in which we can learn from each other and have a chance to heal together. But that doesn't mean you have to spend another hour or two of your time to travel, find parking, deal with the weather and your busy schedule to fit in a therapist visit.
Online counseling is one of the most popular forms of mental health therapy. It's an efficient use of scarce peoples' time, money and energy. I visit my clients at home or in their office. Being able to connect with you in your own surroundings is not only more efficient, but also helps me to learn more about how you live and work. In the experience of my clients, that really helps the recovery process.
With so many benefits, online mental health services often is more practical, better and cost-effective than regular office visits.
EMDR, or "Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing," is often used to help people who have experienced traumatic events.
EMDR makes use of eye movements to help "decompress" trauma-related memories and enable a person to think about the experience in a different way. Instead of eye movements, we can also use other bilateral alternating stimuli. I usually ask you to tap your own shoulders or legs. Tapping the shoulders is often called the butterfly hug. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing has been shown to be effective in helping people who are going through a number of very difficult situations.It is difficult to summarize the many benefits of EMDR, since so many people have had positive experiences with it.
