Co-Active coaching means “being together…in action.” This method helps you get out of your comfort zone, and grow along the way. It’s a way to better understand your own journey—to help you design your future by rediscovering your courage to be the one you want to be, and create what you want to create. I’ve found that my coaching style is not about pushing my clients to do more, but rather about slowing down and releasing into a more intentional way of being.
Internal Family Systems
Internal Family Systems is an approach to psychotherapy that identifies and addresses multiple sub-personalities (or “families”) within each person’s mental system. By giving these sub-personalities voice and choice, they learn to be in healthy relationship with each other and the confident, compassionate, core “Self” - or higher self. This allows for healing and mental balance at a very deep level. I’ve found that by using this approach, my clients are surprised to find so much insight and guidance from within themselves.
Somatic Awareness is the practice of cultivating an empowered relationship with our breath and our body, which, simply put, means learning to feel our body. With this type of awareness, we are able to stay in the present moment and trust our bodies to tell us what we need. When we are able to stay connected to and respectful of our bodies, even under stressful or traumatic experiences, we can release what wounds and harms us and welcome what heals us. With consistent somatic awareness and practice, we can experience the joys of embodiment.
Childhood Emotional Neglect
Childhood Emotional Neglect is often why people cannot deeply connect to other people, especially people who are living under the same roof and trying to live as a family. When we, as children, didn’t have our emotional needs tended to, we grow up with a particular set of struggles. These struggles include difficulty knowing and trusting our own emotions as adults, and we may find ourselves feeling disconnected, unfulfilled or empty. Many describe feeling that they are different from other people; like something is wrong with them, but they’re not sure what it is. Equipped with the knowledge of the causes and effects of Childhood Emotional Neglect, we can practice techniques to overcome them and learn to thrive.
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator is an assessment that measures how we get energy, take in information, make decisions and organize our world. With our unique results, we learn what makes us tick and can help us turn insights into action. Combining Myers Briggs results and coaching can bring eye-opening insights about how our personality type plays a role in our mental and physical well-being. It can also strengthen our relationship muscles, allowing us to build stronger, more successful connections at work, at home, and everywhere else. Finally, knowing your Myers Briggs type also means I can tailor the coaching to how you’ll best learn and execute.
