A Journey towards a Lifestyle of Health
Many of the aspects of therapy that I practice, and what make it so effective, are also embodied in the coaching that I practice.
COACHING VS. THERAPY
I believe that many of the aspects of therapy that I practice, and what make it so effective, are also embodied in the coaching that I practice. Components such as:
- helping clients frame their situations as opportunities for growth, rather than seeing a dead end, or feeling shame about not being able to make progress.
- helping clients understand themselves and others better, so that great insight can create lasting transformation.
- helping clients utilize best tools and practices.
All of these components help bring transformation to one’s life.
What is different about coaching?
But what is different about coaching for me are the following components:
- coaching goals are often more narrowly focused.
- coaching allows more freedom to operate outside of the traditional structures of therapy.
- coaching relationship is not limited to a specific office in a specific city or state.
- coaching is a collaborative relationship that helps the client identify very specific goals.
- coaching is very proactive, encouraging the client to set goals, do homework and experiments, and practice skills.
- coaching is more flexible in the arrangement of time together, whether that be in a face to face meeting in your office, a phone call in the car on the way to work, meeting at a coffee shop, or a video chat session before an important meeting.
- coaching often operates within a specific time period that is agreed upon by the coach and client.
At Marriott we are invested in our people. Our TakeCare Wellbeing program is a testament to our culture and commitment to taking care of our associates. TakeCare consists of three distinct pillars: Me, You + Me, and We. I was searching for a unique personal development opportunity for my Leadership and Support team. Rhett created a customized program that met my goals and exceeded expectations. He presented thought provoking perspectives, simple tools and multiple resources for each person to live their best in mind, body and career. By focusing on the “Me” pillar my team found their relationships both inside and outside thriving.Toni Cummins
Rhett has been an invaluable partner for me and the organization I lead. Individually, he has coached me through very difficult situations, while helping me stay calm and focused on action. And through some group sessions, he has helped many of our team members harness their anxiety as a catalyst for growth.Josh Ramsey
EXECUTIVE AND ORGANIZATIONAL
Organizations function like a family system, and it is with this in mind that I am able to help you and your organization create change. Over the last 20 years I have been speaking in and to organizations, and in the last 10 years I have been utilizing my training as a Marriage and Family Therapist and my training in Restoration Therapy to bring about transformation to organizations, leaders and their relationships.
If you are an executive or lead an organization, contact me so we can discuss how I can best help you.
Below are just a few of the organizations that I have spoken, taught, and worked with.
In order for us to live thriving lives, we need to be taking care of our mind, body and spirit. Utilizing my education, training and experience in these 3 areas, I will help you create a program that will lead you on a journey towards a lifestyle of wellness.
If you are in a place in your life where you are ready to take the next steps, and you need a guide to help you develop a plan, keep you accountable, and encourage you along the way, then contact me so we can talk about next steps.
[ The video on the left is when I finished my first 50 mile race at the Palo Duro Trail Run in October of 2015. It was an amazing experience to have my family run the last quarter mile of the race with me and usher me across the finish line. Without their love and support I could not have done it ]
“What it means is that you have the power to change your brain. All you have to do is lace up your running shoes.”
I love to run and running is my own personal therapy.
I have run my entire life. Always for fun, whether it was in grade school field day, running for sports in high school, or the enjoyment I have found over the last 13 years racing everything from 5K’s to 50 mile races.
I believe that running can change your life, and the science is there to prove that this is true. So whether you would like to start running, or walking, I know that physical movement during therapy tends to enhance one’s insight, creativity and hope.
What is different about this wellness program compared to my running therapy (and walking) that I offer at my therapy office (i.e. around the surrounding area), is that this coaching program will allow me to help you transform your life through the insight and practice that is gained as you explore being out on some local trails.
If you are interested in running therapy on the local trails, I welcome all levels of people, from those who have barely gotten off the couch, to those who are completing 100 mile ultra races.
Also stay tuned for running therapy groups starting in the Fall of 2019. If you are interested, please let my assistant Meagan or I know.
“exercise is as effective as certain medications for treating anxiety and depression.”
Many couples are in a healthy place, but desire to take their relationship to the next level. Using a variety of tools and assessments, I help couples create a succinct road map that combines deep insight and skills training that will lead to relational transformation.
Some of the assessments that I love to use for couples are:
- Marriage Strong
- Relate Strong
- Prepare and Enrich
- Restoration Therapy
If you are interested in letting me develop a plan for your relationship, then contact me so we can get started.
[ This relational coaching is not for couples in crisis, or in chronic conflict, but rather those who are doing good and want to take their relationship to the next level ]
Over the last 10 years I have built a therapy practice that I love, enabling me to make my family a priority, take care of my self, and engage my clients in a life-giving way that leads to transformation. I can help you discover a therapy practice that you love.
