Counseling and Life Coaching
I provide both counseling and life coaching in Charlotte – and yes, they do vary slightly. Coaching refers to addressing a specific situation briefly, giving guidance and concrete tools to help you focus on solutions. Counseling or therapy, on the other hand, is a more long-term process of exploring life-long issues and patterns that repeat themselves over and over. Therapy is more likely to address issues related to family of origin and other deep rooted beliefs about self and others.
Counseling for Addiction
Addiction refers to engaging in habits or behaviors that are difficult to stop or control even though they are causing problems in your life. Examples to this would be drinking too much, using drugs, addiction to food and binge eating, excessive masturbation and use of internet porn, multiple affairs even though you are in a committed relationship, excessive gambling or spending despite financial problems, etc. Addiction counseling is largely based on Motivation Enhancement Therapy which is a client-centered, direct approach to increasing motivation to change, prepare, plan and maintain change of these habits or behaviors. I encourage you to attend 12-step meetings (Alcoholic Anonymous, Narcotic Anonymous, Sex Addicts Anonymous or Gamblers Anonymous) as needed. Of course, the AA model may not work for you and that is OK. I don't believe in one-size-fits-all approaches.
Counseling for Relationship Issues
Therapy can help if you are struggling with your relationships to spouse or life partner, family, coworkers, friends etc. Relationships are an important part of life and they affect our happiness and self-esteem. You may benefit from counseling if you find yourself continuously getting into unhealthy relationships or isolate and become emotionally unavailable. We are social being and thrive on healthy relationships that support and nurture us but we do not always know how to get our needs met or how to ask for what we want. We often struggle with setting and maintaining boundaries causing us great suffering and guilt. Counseling can help sort through these issues and build and maintain successful, healthy and long-lasting relationships.
