I am excited to inform you that I am expanding my practice into executive coaching. Prior to my career in clinical psychology, I worked in the human resources and outplacement consulting fields.
And in my 16 years of conducting psychotherapy, I have engaged with numerous business executives who often sought my ideas and feedback on numerous problems in the workplace -- some of whom ultimately asked me if I could serve as their "executive coach" as opposed to their "psychotherapist."
Finally, after many of these requests, I have decided to demarcate a distinct segment of my practice to helping individuals address issues in their careers and in the workplace. While there is indeed overlap between psychotherapy and executive coaching, they are distinct experiences.
Specifically, my coaching practice will aim to use a customized assessment process (that incorporate psychological measures applied to organizational cultures and workplace dynamics together with in-depth competency-based interviewing) to inform a behaviorally-based phased approach to performance enhancement. Core issues my executive coaching practice will address include performance change, managing upward, working with challenging subordinates, team building, on-boarding/personal alignment with organizational values and role demands, communication and conflict resolution, and career advancement.
