The trick question is: who do you talk to the most? The common answer is the important people in our life, but the truth is we direct our own thinking with our words constantly.
Our own self-talk as a toddler began our internal construction of our own personal maps of the outer world. A lot has changed with our maps as we evolved, but the, sometimes invisible, process of how we communicate and upgrade our maps remains the same.
As a retired Naval Officer, I sought out a new profession to help corporate groups communicate better via NLP and the ROPES program. That expanded to working with civic groups and eventually at-risk kids. At that point, it touched my heart deeply, and I had to learn more about how to help others. I returned to school to get another master's degree, but this time in Counseling and Psychology in 1998. I have worked with clients in a hospital setting, and several private practices since then, and have studied the coaching and counseling arts from NLP and Neuro-Semantics, Hypnosis, and Clean Language. I've also maintained my training as a 6th degree Black Belt in martial arts.
I can help you explore how you talk to yourself and others, and help empower you and/or your group to reach your goals.
One of my greatest joys is the wonderful relationship I have with my two successful adult daughters, Jessica and Sarah. We can and do talk about the struggles of life with a view for the future, reminding each other of our past successes and how we can be and do better.
As a professional change agent, I am committed to providing a robust conversation with factual sensory-based feedback, leverage skills, and a non-judgemental awareness to facilitate the changes you desire.
