Methods & Techniques

Overview of My Model

See my coaching and counselling page. In all my work II use the integrative body and mind principles/philosophies from the book, the Ministry of Healing, written over 100 years ago which can be applied to almost all different faiths and is backed by modern science.


Developed by Dr. David Burns, MD at Stanford University. T.E.A.M. is a cutting-edge, evidence based method for the treatment of depression, anxiety, troubled relationships, habits/addiction and more. It draws heavily on the techniques of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) adding the warmth of empathy and the powerful effectiveness of agenda setting (making sure the client is ready for change). This approach focuses on rapid change to bring about the results you desire in a safe environment. T.E.A.M. is being used by hundreds of therapists, and even several life coaches, around the world because it has been proven more effective than other models using tools that work from any modality of therapy.

Integrative Approach

The mind and body are interconnected and many things we experience affect both. The book "The Ministry of Healing" was written over 100 years ago, but unlike the quacks of the past, the concepts of this book are relevant and scientific. Well before her time, Ellen White, the author wrote about health and wellness that is constantly being proven in scientific journals. Concepts like exercise to prevent disease, volunteer work for longevity, plant based diet, and much more. For a free copy of this book download it here. I also have a free video course on health and wellness showing the scientific evidence for these concepts "Optimal Health - Have a Long & Happy Life" on my Body Mind Health Coach website.

Non-Judgmental Faith-Based

You may choose just T.E.A.M or add the spiritual component or other tools offered in our sessions.  I'll warn you, happiness often is a spiritual journey, albeit not necessarily a religious one. Regardless of what I believe, our sessions together will be about YOU and I will not push my point of view. While I am a Seventh-day Adventist Christian, I believe religious freedom is a fundamental principle of free will and thus I will not coerce anyone since that is not how God operates and neither do I. Some of you maybe struggling with why your faith is not fixing your pain, or maybe your faith is causing you distress due to expectations. if you want to talk to someone who understands faith and won't trying to convince you to give up God, you've come to the right place.
