Here's the deal. Coaching, consulting, psychotherapy, they all are about creating space for strong, character and values driven people to think about their lives, their relationships and their thoughts, feelings and actions in the pursuit of happiness. There is no one better at helping business owners, couples and individuals do this profound work than me. Just what 30 plus years of experience gets you. What I create for you is a place to open up and explore what you feel think and want. A guide who knows how to support you in creating your best life. Most of the time people who work with me come to realize they know more than they think. They needed someone skilled in helping them get rid of limiting beliefs and others voices, not one more person telling them what they should think and do. You are already too full of ideas that are not yours. I am ready to help you find some relief as soon as possible even today if necessary.
I have respect for all who take on the challenge of living at cause rather than at the effects of their circumstances. Hopefully you can find that with the professional you hire. It is the most important ingredient for you to make lasting progress. The feeling that you are valued, loved and supported. Secondly, I am not interested in the long slow process that weekly coaching and traditional psychotherapy models create. People need connection and guidance in moments that are most often not convenient in a "once a week" scheduled appointment. I provide a way to work with me that meets you where and when you most need to connect. A flat monthly fee gets you whatever face time, phone, email and text time you need in a thirty day period to get to a better place. No contract, stop when you are done, work in a way that is best for you. There's a good chance you will be better in 30-60 days when you work with me. When you hire me you have a connection that works.
Some have actually said that a month working with me is like four months with other therapists. Read my profile and reviews.
Regarding Insurance for counseling: Most insurance companies don't cover marriage counseling, personal growth and of course business coaching. If they do cover individual mental health services, usually the individual will have to be willing to be diagnosed or at least take on a diagnosable disorder "label" in order for the therapist to submit their services for coverage. Constant reviews of progress with confidential written communication is often required to confirm you are making progress or to clarify if treatment is still necessary. Who knows where this sensitive information about you might end up? This can have an impact on your professional and medical health profile for years to come. Generally when a treatment process involves insurance benefits, the way most policies are written it only prolongs the process of you getting to work and creating the happiness you want.
My recommendation is for you to decide to invest in yourself. Your happiness is more important than much of what you are already spending money on. Call for a free 30 minute phone consultation or if your inclined, come see me to help you determine if we are a good fit to work together. You will know in the first 5 minutes of talking to me if I am your guy. I am ready right now to talk with you. First visit is 50.00 applied to the monthly fee if we agree to work together.

People dealing with stress, depression, anxiety, PTSD, childhood trauma, premarital and marital issues, divorce, divorce mediation, parenting and conflict resolution.

Broad exploration of what it is you most want and what seems to be limiting your clarity, personal power or ability to create and act. We work to create a space of trust and safety so new discoveries are possible. I partner with everyone I work with. While I know some things, so does the client and we work together in the pursuit of happiness.

I can charge by the hour and do at times when that is what my clients prefer $125.00 an hour. I believe a monthly model that allows you to hire me to work with you in times and ways that best move you forward is better. I charge a monthly (30 day period) fee of $500.00 for whatever you actually need including face to face in my office, email connections, phone and texting, basically unlimited or extended sessions. If you are pressed for funds I can help with an abbreviated weekly session of 20-30 minutes for a reduced fee. The key is for you to see rapid improvement in whatever it is that is bothering you. I am here to support you when you most need it rather than trapping you into a single hour each week when it may or may not be convenient for you. If you need 5 minutes on the phone on the way to work or after dinner in the evening, if at all possible I want to provide that to you. Much can be done in 5-10 minutes when you are in the moment of discovery.

I always love spending time creating safe spaces for people to explore what they want and help them learn the necessary skills to make that happen. I have no agenda for outcomes except that I help you create your own happiness. I have a tremendous capacity to help people see how they are most naturally gifted and then how to master who they are. My areas of expertise restoring what I call relational, romantic friendship. I teach people how to understand and change dysfunctional family dynamics - I guide clients to develop healthy self esteem and communication skills. With my unique pricing structure, my approach, skills and experience there is no one better in Charlotte. Read some of my reviews. Schedule a conversation and see for yourself.
Ask your coach or therapist to tell you about themselves. Listen for what values drive the way the professional thinks. Care about how you feel as you listen to what he or she says. Find rapport and trust. Make sure they are there to help you discover your values and choices rather than bring an agenda for you. This
Know what you desire. Trust your intuition. Find someone who you can enjoy working with.
