Energizing people to transform their lives by helping them to embrace change as a dynamic process that can be fun and meaningful and one that greatly enhances relationships with family, friends, and colleagues is what I do. I'm earnestly passionate about what I do, and I care deeply for my clients' well-being and personal and professional growth. I listen, I reflect, I hold space for clients to explore their motivations and desires, but I goad and challenge, too -- all toward moving the client into real change that ultimately leads to greater happiness and fulfillment.
I love seeing people tackling issues they've been procrastinating or reluctant about because they haven't known how, and in the process really experiencing change at a whole new level. When I see that look on someone's face that says, "Ahhh, I hadn't thought about it that way before, but I could see how that would work for me or my situation" then I know I've done my job. Change IS scary, but you don't have to do it alone. Are you ready to let go of your B.S. (belief system!) and move into a completely different way of thinking about your basic assumptions about life? If so, then let's get started.
My experience with this therapist was life-changing. I was struggling with a recent traumatic event and needed someone to listen to me. I was barely functioning when I went to see Troy as a result of this event. I was skeptical at first, and I was very resistant. However, I came to see that Troy was a seasoned counseling professional. His warmth, eclectic life experiences, and impressive business acumen added so much value to our sessions. Troy was extremely knowledgeable, gentle, understanding, and helped me to find balance again. Eventually, with his help, I became empowered and I was able to regain my sense of purpose. I was able to smile again (we were always laughing in sessions), and I found a new path for myself. As a result of Troy's work with me, I developed a greater ability to reflect on my experiences, explored aspects of my personality, and how specific events have informed who I am today. I was able to move forward, and today am happily married with a successful career. I will always be grateful for his guidance in therapy which continues to help me achieve my highest and best self daily. I have recommended him to anyone I knew that needed a discreet counseling professional. I went into therapy with no expectation of doing anything more than surviving but left therapy having been empowered to cultivate a new perspective and the ability to thrive.
I prefer to have a brief telephone call or videoconference to see if we're a great fit. If so, then we move toward scheduling a full consultation, either in person or via videoconference. If not, then I refer you to another coach or therapist who will be a better fit for you. This work is so personal that I think it's all about "the fit" in order for it to be effective and successful.
