How I Work
Our Work Together
I have worked with hundreds of clients as a coach and a counselor. No matter how good my interventions are, no matter how much research is backing them, the only thing that actually works to facilitate change is the relationship.
Building a strong relationship is vital for achieving success in our work together, just like with mountaineers and their Sherpas.
In addition to the relationship there are two things that are necessary for change:
ᛃ Change takes time. Time to build the relationship. Time to establish new routines and habits. Time to change the wiring of our brain.
ᛃ Commitment: To the relationship, to change, and to the process.
This is why I designed the New Beginnings Program and the Shift Program. These programs create a commitment to a number of sessions, giving us the time to establish a sturdy foundation, delve deeper into your goals, and collaborate effectively to bring about sustainable and impactful changes, whether you are looking for wellness coaching or psychedelic integration.
One last important thing: change is a process. Sometimes things get worse before they get better. And that is scary. I'm here to help you through the scariest parts of that journey.
What Coaching With Me Looks Like
Cultivating the Coaching Relationship:
Our journey begins with building a strong and authentic coaching relationship. I prioritize creating a genuine, accepting, and empathetic environment where you can freely express your thoughts and emotions. Through deep connection and genuine understanding, we'll establish a solid foundation for our transformative work.
Illuminating Your Goals and Desires:
With a strong foundation in place, we'll delve into the core of your being to unearth your true goals and desires. These may not be the goals you came in with. Like the saying goes, “Fish don’t know they’re in water.” We'll explore what ignites your passion, aligns with your values, and resonates with your soul. By honing in on your deepest desires as well as those obvious realities you might not be able to see, we'll ensure that your goals are meaningful, empowering, and in alignment with the life you want.
Crafting an Empowering Action Plan:
Once your goals are crystal clear, we'll co-create a powerful action plan that harnesses the connection between your mind and body. We'll design practices and interventions that leverage the transformative potential of somatic techniques and mindfulness. This action plan will serve as your compass, guiding you towards tangible progress and growth.
Embracing Ongoing Support and Evolution:
Transformation is an ongoing process, and I'm here to provide unwavering support as you navigate the twists and turns of your journey. We'll regularly assess and adjust our approach, fine-tuning your action plan to ensure its effectiveness. I'll be by your side, offering guidance, encouragement, and accountability, as we work together to overcome obstacles and celebrate your victories.
My healing philosophy is based on Interpersonal Neurobiology, a multidisciplinary scientific approach that recognizes the importance of three key elements in our overall well-being: the mind, the brain/body, and our relationships.
Interpersonal Neurobiology highlights the fact that our brains are constantly changing based on our experiences and environment. This means that by focusing on our thoughts, our physical well-being, and our relationships, we have the power to rewire our brains and create lasting change.
By integrating our mind, body/brain, and relationships, we can develop greater self-awareness and empathy, improve our emotional regulation, and build stronger, more fulfilling connections with others. As your inner transformation coach, I will guide you through the process of integrating these key elements of your life, so you can achieve your goals and evolve from the inside out!
