Individual Therapy + Coaching

"Your heart is the size of an ocean. Go find yourself hidden in it's depths." ~Rumi

What is therapy + coaching?

 

Therapy + coaching is a comprehensive mental health program that integrates your past, present, and future to set you up for success. The therapy I offer can help to recover from past traumas and blocks in emotional, social, & identity development. Therapy can help you to understand how where you’ve been has influenced who you’ve become and tools to tend to unresolved emotional wounds. You’ll also gain new relationship skills to strengthen social bonds. It is often with a gentle and compassionate approach. Therapy can be complex and non-linear so there is space for this kind of processing and unfolding.

 

Coaching styles can be folded in as you are ready. Oftentimes, when clients have come to some resolution of their past, they are more ready to progress with forward thinking and action. I can continue to help you notice and move through obstacles that come up that resonate with your history and change old coping strategies that no longer match your environment. We’ll work on creating and achieving goals, maintaining new habits, and methods for problem solving when you are stuck.

For legal reasons, I can only offer therapy for clients with residency address in Colorado. Coaching I can offer clients from anywhere. The style may be more direct, future and goal-oriented, but never loses the compassion of my personality. The limitations of coaching include I cannot offer diagnosis or provide a Superbill for insurance reimbursement. If you are experiencing intensive mental health issues, such as suicidality, violent impulses, or addiction, in-state therapy may be a better option. If you have more questions about whether out-of-state coaching is right for you, please contact me or book a free consultation call.
