Coaching or Therapy?
Yes! Clients report that working online provides a unique and convenient way to meet that sometimes can feel even more personal and direct than meeting in person. Also, the convenience of scheduling without transit time, as well as the ability to work together from three separate locations, make working online a great advantage for many busy couples and for those who travel.
Together or separately?
Many couples supplement our six couple sessions with individual sessions for either or both partners separately. This is effective, and often recommended, because while you are working together on improving your relationship, you also each have unique questions and perspectives that could benefit from individual support.
How long does coaching take?
Our first two sessions include discussing your challenges and an introduction to neurodiversity, in order to be certain we are using the same language and share a common understanding of what we are talking about when we say neurodiverse. I will develop a personalized four-session schedule that incorporates your goals and is also respectful of your budget, so that you don't feel you're caught in an endless cycle of coaching. Our goal will be to help you identify where you are and where you would like to be, and then I will support you as we build the roadmap. I will hold you accountable to your choices, and I will remind you of your goals, which we will adjust to account for changes you may want to make. I will be your guide, and your companion. I will keep you on track.
How do we know you can do what you say you can do?
How will we know when our work is finished?
Once we complete our two initial sessions and the four-week program afterwards, you may want to schedule the occasional session after that in order to concentrate on specific areas that may arise. We can certainly do that. I will be here for you as long as you want to continue working with me. You will decide when to move on. My goal it to offer you support as you develop skills and strategies so that you no longer need me.
