Sharon Small, BA, CHT, CLF in Arroyo Grande
I'm a realist, and I know how often one part of our life can deeply impact other aspects. A child using drugs can effect your work, your marriage, and safety. Difficulty at work can effect your sex life, your weight, and your finances. How being in an intractable bind (having to choose one thing over another) can seem to drain your day to day living of color and energy. My goal as a therapeutic coach is not to fix what's "wrong", but to help you better navigate what's actually happening right now.
Symbolic Modeling is a generous and creative approach to working with your desired outcomes, helping you frame them in a way that makes the most sense in relationship to your life and needs. This approach engages your creativity, your intellect, and internal knowing to work towards outcomes designed by you.
Using an outcome oriented approach you'll gain: the ability to be more flexible and generous with yourself, to stand on your own two feet and follow your internal compass, and the ability to make decisions and take actions that work within the ecology of your life.
