We're Not on a Journey, We Are the Journey

We're Not on a Journey, We Are the Journey

A few weeks ago I was honored to be invited to share the story of my journey to becoming a therapist and coach.

This is the first time I've ever done an interview of this kind. Brandon Baker is a wonderfully warm and skilled interviewer, and I feel really fortunate to be included as a guest on The Coach's Circle podcast.

I encourage anyone who is considering working with me to listen to the interview. It is often through this kind of media that we get a clear, gut-level feeling about whom would be best for us to work with.

Because this is my first interview of this kind, I'd like to correct an error. I refer to "The Satir Method" many times throughout the interview as I discuss my work. This is not the correct term. I should have used the terms "The Satir Model" and "Satir Transformational Systems."

I did refer to Satir Transformational Systems several times. This is the name of the modality taught at the Satir Institute of the Pacific, where I receive my initial and ongoing training.

I welcome your feedback and wish you continued excitement on the journey that is YOUR life!

Why Do I Need a Therapy Session Goal?

Do you sometimes feel challenged to think of a goal when you are getting ready to start your therapy session? Well you’re not alone. Not all therapists have the expectation that their clients will have a session goal, but Satir therapists do.

From Chaos to Connection

The idea that our human conflicts are damaging to us, and can--even must--be ended isn’t new. My personal favorite expression comes from Joni Mitchell’s song California:

Being the Real You in Every Moment

I’m a big fan of the Washington Post advice columnist, Carolyn Hax. She’s been writing her column for 22 years and doing a weekly, live chat as well.
