I will assign homework each week that is pertinent to the work we are doing together.
I will facilitate sessions that are specific to the needs of the client(s) and at times, with consent, participate in the dynamic outside of a traditional setting if I feel it is of benefit to the coaching experiencing ( ex. attending a client’s musical performance, home visits, conjoint session with family members, collaborating with other practitioners involved in client’s life, etc. ).
Clients are free to text or email me for brief questions in between sessions.
It is my role to offer you a safe, inspiring and non-judgmental relationship where you can explore parts of yourself that you otherwise have struggled to discover and actualize.
