If you’ve browsed my website, you might have come across the phrase “client-centered approach.” But what does that mean?
Simply put, a client-centered approach means that I believe, wholeheartedly, that ultimately you know what’s best for you. In other words, when we work together, I will guide you, but you’ll drive the bus.
Some people might expect that I am an “expert” who has all the answers they’re looking for. I’m not that kind of expert. Instead, my expertise is that I know how to guide you to connect with the knowledge you already have inside of yourself. I help you discover and develop your resourcefulness so you can achieve the goals you set. I have decades of experience in coaching and counseling settings, but when it comes to identifying an ideal outcome for your life, no one is more of an expert than you are.
While this approach does mean that you have the personal responsibility of creating a vision, making decisions, setting goals, and managing the pace at which we move through the process, it doesn’t have to be intimidating. I support you every step of the way so you’ll feel confident about each step’s timing, the goals you set, and the decisions you make. When we work together and adapt the program to fit your specific needs, interests, and values, you can be sure that you are entirely in charge of your direction and success.
