Coral’s approach comes from a Solution-focused brief therapy perspective. Solution-focused therapy is a goal-directed collaborative approach which incorporates positive psychology principles and practices, and helps clients evolve by constructing new solutions rather than focusing on their problems
Though she is a structured therapist, she has experience with Narrative Therapy which is a form of counseling that helps clients externalize their problems which allows distance from their issues. With this new perspective, individuals feel more empowered to make changes in their thought patterns and behavior and “rewrite” their life story for a future that reflects who they are, what they are capable of, and what their purpose is, separate from their problems. Coral is also training in Imago Relationship Therapy and Gottman Couples Counseling principles.
During the COVID lockdown, Coral decided to act on her lifelong interest in psychology and mental health and began her journey to become a Marriage and Family Therapist.
She is passionate about helping clients face their challenges and process the old experiences that may be getting in their way. Therapy and healing have been a big part of her life and she enjoys sharing in her clients healing journeys and guiding them along their path.
This is Coral’s second career. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and has a long-standing successful track record in business and logistics. So, she adds another dimension of understanding when working with executives and C-Suite professionals in therapy.
