Cheryl L Wheeler, MA, LAC, Counselor in Phoenix
I believe we all have the answers within; together we will uncover your direction and purpose. Trained and practicing as a psychotherapist, within the medical model for the past 8 yrs, I find coaching to be a better fit for people without "mental illness". Transformational coaching is a process of implementing critical thinking into action, by testing hypothesis, and applying analytical thinking. Transformational coaching removes the "psychiatric, pathological aspects the medical disease model" of mental disorders prescribes. No longer is the client viewed as ill with a diagnosis needing treatment! Together we learn to creating a catalyst of change.
New name to reflect a new direction! My Counseling Solutions is now Alternatives in Counseling! My passion is helping people achieve an enriched and enlightened life experience. Through the process of tranformational coaching together we take the journey of self discovery and fulfillment . ~ Coaching is not covered by insurance~
