An athletic coach examines, evaluates, and utilizes the talent of a player or team, and then places them in the best possible position to succeed. A personal coach does the same thing by recognizing a person is the expert of their field, their current position, and knows their desired destination. A coach can understand you; to think how you think, and understand your viewpoint, and places another perspective on top of yours. Thus stretching and growing you to gently see a more empowering way. Coaching is foreseeing, paving the way, coming alongside you while helping you achieve goals and overcome limiting paradigms.
With an M.A. in Pastoral Counseling, I take an eclectic approach to counseling and utilize a Solution-Focused, Brief Therapy approach. This goal-directed collaborative approach to psycho-therapeutic change is conducted through direct observation of person’s responses to a series of precisely constructed questions. The focus is on addressing what a person wants to achieve, rather past histories that could hinder personal growth. By identifying a persons goals, a detailed description of what life will be like when the goal is accomplished, strategies can be developed to co-construct uniquely appropriate and effective solutions.
A chaplain is a comforter, pastor, teacher and counselor. They are creative and understanding as they demonstrate God’s grace and love in ministering to people at all levels of professional life. From manufacturing facilities to recreational sites to business offices, the chaplain can help employees discover spiritual resources and faith in their work. Providing worship services, religious education, pastoral care, and counseling, the chaplain offers critical support in an area that is often the source of spiritual distress.
I’m a man who loves the Lord Jesus and my family. I’ve been married over 29 years and wouldn’t give back one day with my wife, Debbie. I have two sons, Robert and Colton, and am extremely proud of both of them. I’m also the proud “Pop” to my two grand-children, Anna and Luke.
