Mental Health Services, Coaching, and Parenting Education
Welcome to New Connections Counseling and Coaching!
New Connections Counseling and Coaching is a private Mental Health and Coaching practice in Medford Oregon. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, and hold additional certification as a Life Coach, Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and Parenting Educator for multiple evidence-based Nurturing Parenting Programs. I am also currently enrolled in a certified ADHD coach training program.
My desire is that my clients are self-empowered, through skills and corrective healing experiences, to pursue their desired lifestyle utilizing their greatest strengths. I have a passion for working with individuals and families from a strengths-based and holistic approach. I view behaviors from a Neuro-developmental lens, assisting my clients in identifying and mastering the lagging life skills that are hampering their growth and adaptability. Depending on the age, needs and processing modalities of each person, I use a variety of therapeutic modalities, such as art, music, play, somatic methods, mindfulness, family systems, cognitive-behavioral, narrative, interpersonal, and collaborative problem solving. My goal is that you leave with new preferred ways of thinking and acting that you are able to maintain over time.
Whenever possible, I include personal, community (family, friends, schools, medical or alternative care providers), and spiritual supports in one’s change process. I also believe most people desire to contribute in meaningful ways to their community or environment, and I actively support my clients in doing so, assisting them in identifying the personal strengths and passions that give their life meaning and motivate them to achieve.
