Family Crisis – Relationship Crisis – Addiction Crisis
No two crisis situations are the same. They vary by family, individual, and relationship. They can encompass complex family dynamics, emotional distress, anger issues, and entitlements and often involve substance abuse.
Many times these crisis situations involve:
- A destructive family member
- Addiction or drug abuse
- Unhealthy relationships
- Marriage that is on the rocks
- A grown child or teen refusing to adapt to life’s challenges
Most importantly, they are starting to spiral. It’s time to get help. One thing they all have in common: well-meaning individuals such as yourself feel hopeless, frustrated, and trapped. You feel like you’ve done everything you can to remedy the situation, but things aren’t changing.
Or they are getting worse. Crisis coaching helps you and your loved ones get back on track. I step into a high-stress situation in order to help get everyone unstuck. This involves an intensive look at your current situation and all the factors involved.
My goal is to equip you and your loved ones with the tools, support, and direction to move forward. Unlike traditional counseling, this is not a long-term endeavor. I work with you until we have successfully navigated your current situation and you are confident in your abilities to go forward.
Crisis coaching is an in-depth, no nonsense method to quickly assessing your crisis situation and charting a path to move forward.
This is triage.
One limitation of typical clinicians and counselors is they only work with one individual. I work individually with all of the stakeholders to fully diagnose the situation. A comprehensive view is essential to getting to the root of the problem. Then, we bring everyone together. This dynamic approach does two key things. It creates a common ground to facilitate meaningful communication. Secondly, it gives everyone ownership. Communication and ownership are key to creating change. Building off of the communication, we outline steps to move forward. I then work individually to equip everyone with the skills, direction, and support to take appropriate action. Many times this involves pairing people with professionals to help them address underlying issues.
After working with me, clients will:
Build a common ground with family members
Create healthy boundaries
Facilitate hard conversations in a meaningful way
Have specific steps to move forward
And, most importantly, have hope for a better future
