"My sessions feel more like I'm grabbing a fresh brewed coffee and talking with a trusted colleague or mentor than a one hour ordeal with some know-it-all shrink…"

The Kitchen Table Approach is a positive, effective, person-to-person experience in managing and overcoming real-life problems and clinical mental health disorders. No white coats and uncomfortable traditional "therapy" seating arrangements. Your first visits will likely begin with a warm welcome into a safe, comfortable, home-like breakfast "nook" and an offer of a beverage and a homemade cookie. Later, our work together may take us outdoors to walk, garden, or shoot hoop. There may be times, when the work of therapy finds you sitting or stretched out on the carpet and learning to "play". You may prefer to do your healing in either the recliner chair or massage chair… Some people communicate best with a watercolor canvas, the sand tray, a journal, or music. We will use what is already working in your life to motivate you to make different, the parts of your life that are not working, that are maladaptive or disordered.
The Kitchen Table Approach to Counseling is a unique, person-to-person professional relationship that facilitates much more than "feeling better" about yourself, your relationships and your life. The Kitchen Table Approach is about getting what you need AND what you want so that you not only survive in this life, but thrive!
