|My background is so diverse that I take the
approach of an Educator/Coach and I transcend the traditional therapeutic model, which I
find falls short of addressing the *REAL* causes for these problems and fails to come up
with a solution, and always finds a "bad guy" in the process. I have been a
"Clinical Psychotherapist" and a "Family Therapist" and an
"Addiction Professional" for various mental health agencies and I have
never found that any of the conventional/traditional model have ever solved these
"Adult Situational Problems" which we ALL suffer as we face a very dysfunctional
modern-day society with stresses based much less on the economy than most people would
suppose and much more on damages to us as unique human beings as members of a species
struggling to remain "fit" enough to survive.
In my workshops, I will present to you, so logically, the conclusions of my many years of education, life-experience, professional counseling experience, and all of the intensive research which I have done on my own and then applied to clients in both my private practice and as a more traditional "therapist" within the conventional "systems" where I have observed that there has often been little actual help in reaching the heart of the problems and more attempt to treat the symptoms than finding and treating the cause.
The workshops go immediately right to the heart of the problems
using an educational approach so that in eight (8) weeks, sixteen (16) hours or your time
and mine invested in this Teaching/Learning process, you will come away with an amazing
number of answers, strategies, and new directions to take to reach your current goals and
some which you probably don't even know you have. When you learn the causes behind the
symptoms, as stated in the above questions, you will see that there are no "bad
guys," no one is "at fault," and no one needs to feel attacked. We are all
in this soup together and we have to get out of it together. I can lead the way.
The process of my
working with you begins with a "Personal-Self Quest" and the goal there is for
me to lead you on the path to finding and falling in love with yourself. The final stage
of this very unique Journey is the "Search for the Holy Grail of Truth." When
you have captured these objectives, this Quest if over, but you will have learned to
pursue your continuing, lifelong "Personal-Self Quest," the one you will take
under your own guidance. In order to grow, we must continually seek change and then focus
back within ourselves to monitor and take stock of our progress. Once your
"Personal-Self Quest" reveals your Truths, very new doors will open for you and
you will take the education you are about to receive into very new and highly-productive
directions. Our short and long-term goals are finding who you are, what you need, how you
define your happiness, success, and fulfillment in life and what resources you have to
barter at the ultimate goal of the bargaining table in which you will negotiate your
relationships. Mostly, first we need to search for and find your strengths .. not your
weaknesses. You have been influenced all your life by hearing about your *supposed*
"weaknesses." But what about your *real* "Strength?" Who has
been forcing that information and insight onto you? No one! But that's what your
"Personal-Self Quest" will begin to accomplish. I will show you how and I will
take you to the path, and I will hand you the key, and I will guide you on your way, and I
will pick you up if you fall... but you will spend the rest of your life
"Personal-Self Questing, " and on a daily basis, you will be forever search for
the "Holy Grail of Truth." It will always be hiding inside of you, very often
behind the walls of your ego.
