As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist helping thousands of clients in the houston, TX area. I’ve found that relationship coaching actually works faster and more effectively to promote change and get results than traditional “therapy”. The biggest difference is coaching creates solution-oriented actions for the present and future you can use to make immediate changes in your situation. Therapy traditionally is about analyzing the problem and focusing heavily on “feelings” and on the past, where no changes can occur.
My Coaching Programs utilize both right-brain and left-brain learning to repair the damage, remove the problem, you want to change, and focus on the future you want to create, rather than getting stuck in hurt feelings and the arguments that come from blaming, criticizing or distracting. Right brain learning involves your unconscious mind (where all your habits are controlled), emotions and imagination. Using logic and analysis to fix relationship problems doesn’t work nearly as well as going directly to where the difficulties are: in your emotional patterns, perspectives and often, in the coping strategies you use under pressure or stress that just don’t work very well.
Here are your options:
These appointments are designed for couples who want:
- a quick “tune-up” or review of your circumstances
- resolution on a specific issue you haven’t been able to overcome yet
- suggestions how to implement the changes you already decided to make
In this format, you may schedule sessions at your convenience, and come as often as you feel it’s helpful. Sessions are 45 minutes in duration. Occasionally, clients find it useful to plan longer visits to work on the issues, so another option is to book an “extended session”. Scheduling longer sessions better accommodates work requirements or geographical issues for those out-of-the-area clients, and simply means you request back-to-back sessions so you have more time with Julie.
Coaching and Mentorship Programs
All of our programs are very RESULTS BASED. They can be “fast-track” or more “extended”, but they are all a more comprehensive way to fix the problems and get your relationship back on track. These programs create much more access to Julie and utilize many tools than traditional therapy to learn and make changes quickly. There are several options you can choose from, depending on how you learn best, how much time you can devote to learning, and the extent of the change you want to create:
The Coaching Programs are designed for a short-term, intensive focus, usually dealing with a few specific things to be addressed.
The Mentorship Program is also designed to be very “results oriented”, but is designed to have a much more relaxed pace over a longer period of time, so implementation of the learning can occur with longer term guidance and support. It also allows for dealing with a greater number of topics or issues as time permits.
