I am a health psychologist and certified master mental health coach @NCOei.org. I specialize in mental health coaching for a variety of issues: depression, anxiety, stress, anger/rage, bullying, divorce/breakup and healthy relationships. I focus on cognitive and emotion focused therapy. The idea is to master your mental faculties or mental processes: thoughts, thought patterns, bleif systems and understand the purpose and use of emotions. This mental health process is designed to provide clarity of thought and give you a greater inner awareness of your thoughts and habitual thought patterns. The goal is to feel confident and good no matter what by caring a lot about how you feel.
Understanding the dynamics between the conscious and sub-conscious mind is an energizing process filled with "a-ha" moments, which results in greater awareness and understanding of you and your friends and family. We are all learning and growing and there is no such a thing as "mistakes" - only opportunities to learn and continue growing. I really enjoy explaining how the mind creates emotions and how the imagination can work for you or against you. Mastering your mental faculties is an empowering, confidence building process.
Val is warm hearted, caring and very wise when it comes to emotions and mental faculties. Val has given me great insight into emotions and relationships. Her knowledge and expertise makes her a brilliant mental health coach!
Val is a great listener and has insights and wisdom on the mind and how our mental process function in our daily lives. I have never heard mentality explained in such an easy-to-understand way. I highly recommend Val!
My typical process is first to understand my client's belief system. The next step is to review my client's treatment/therapy preferences such as likes and dislikes regarding therapy. Lastly, together, we can identify areas of focus and explore different solutions.
I have a master's degree in health psychology and an advanced degree certificate in health psychology. Currently, I'm certified as a master mental health coach at NCOei.org.
My standard multi-media therapy rate is $65 per hour.
I got started coaching in 2014 with NCOei.org programs for court including counseling/coaching.
I have coached both juveniles and adults of all ages and all different types of issues such as anxiety, depression, anger/rage, bullying, self image, break up and divorce, healthy relationships and more.
Recently, I discovered that Bob Proctor's Born Rich seminar is now free on YouTube. This is the most amazing self help seminar I have ever seen. I highly recommend! I have also created an online course and a hybrid program called Life Enrichment/Life Skills which is very popular in court systems across the nation. The course distinguishes between success consciousness and crisis mentality/lack-based mentality and is available at NCOei.org
My advice when looking to hire a mental health pro is to go with your intuition and your instinct. Follow your feelings, if the session/interaction with your psychologist is uplifting, inspiring, motivating and most importantly, leaves you with a feeling of clarity, then you have a winner.
Ask about the psychologist's preferred methods of treatment for the different issues that you are facing. Ask about the psychologist's experience and what types of self help that they personally prefer. Pay close attention to your own feelings when questioning your psychologist; sometimes, it's just not a good fit and there's no good reason why--always go with how you feel.
