LIFE/ADHD COACHING

Coaching is a solutions-oriented process, and the coach and client collaboratively identify where individuals are trying to go, what is keeping them from getting there, and specific solutions to goal achievement. Coaching creates an environment of support and accountability to help people accomplish their objectives. There is a fair overlap between counseling and coaching, and I have trained and credentialed as both a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Board Certified Coach (BCC).  My particular focus of training is in ADHD Coaching.

Online counseling for online addiction?

As ironic as it may sound, many in the Millennial generation prefer to meet in an online environment rather than in-person.  A recent article in Inc. Online magazine lists “5 Reasons Millennials Aren't Answering Your Phone Call”  (Distracting, Presumptuous, Superfluous, Ineffective, Time-consuming; see full details below). I think a similar argument can be made for choosing online counseling… 

I have completed advanced training in online counseling and coaching (also known as Distance Counseling, Telemental Health, etc), and learned some pretty interesting stuff.  For example, research has found CBT sessions conducted online and in-person to be equally effective, texting is highly utilized by crisis centers, and the use of these and other distance tools is “skyrocketing” in the mental health field.  In sum, people DO succeed with online counseling and coaching.

I have worked online with students who are studying abroad as far away as India, as well as from their dorm rooms located 3 miles from my office.  I have worked with busy professionals too busy to make the drive from Atlanta, and have participated in online meetings with members spread around the country. 

If you think you could potentially benefit from counseling and/or coaching, but are unable (or unwilling) to attend in-person sessions, contact me so that we can explore the option of online sessions.  It works.


Note: Online counseling and coaching is NOT reserved for only those struggling with online addictions; it is beneficial for a multitude of other purposes (ADHD, etc). I make this clarification b/c the tagline above implies that it does. I simply used this line because, quite honestly, its catchy! :-)
