Background:

Throughout my career as a psychotherapist and executive coach I have seen how much therapy and coaching has evolved. No longer is the concept of the stand alone psychotherapy office a necessity or a convenience for clients. The majority of coaching clients prefer the convenience of using the telephone, Face Time, email or texting. Tele-Health allows for clients to call in, utilize FaceTime, Skype and other means of communication to receive counseling or coaching in a confidential manner, at their own discretion. Today I am servicing clients in both New York and Florida. My clients have the autonomy, confidentiality and convenience of scheduling their sessions at times that are convenient to them not the standard office hours most have come to expect. My practice has been providing both coaching and psychotherapy services to clients via telephone, Skype and FaceTime for more than 5 years and before that by telephone at a time that works for them.

Methodology

My Approach:

My approach is focused on partnering with you to develop clear goals for our work together while minimizing the inconvenience of having to disrupt your schedule and and to help challenge yourself to develop strategies for seeking solutions and improving your overall quality of life. In other words I provide you with the support to take your skills (strengths you already have) and implement them in new and creative ways that better serve you both personally and professionally.

Both approaches are exceptionally viable ways to enhance your life however, we learn how to sustain results when we understand the ways our perceptions impact our life and relationships. This is why I have developed a more dynamic interactive psychotherapy style, one that combines the subtleties of psychotherapy with the direct approach of coaching. This provides less need for formal history exploration unless needed, and more time to focus on client objectives rather than past missteps.
