Coaching & Behavioral Consultation

Coaching & Behavioral Consultation

A coach (or “Behavioral Consultant”) is trained to help you create and implement sustainable changes to improve your life. Our coaches are familiar with neurodivergent patterns of perceiving and processing, making them an ideal choice for neurodivergent clients seeking clarity, personal growth, and beneficial change. 

Our coaches regularly consult with our clinical team to remain actively informed in the field of mental health. In addition to preparing coaches to work effectively with neurodivergent clients, this also prepares coaches to more effectively stay within the boundaries of coaching and identify when clients may be better served by other members of the clinical team. When clinically appropriate, active coaching clients receive wait-list priority for therapists within the Halcyon network. The strong working relationship between coaches and therapists at Halcyon also allows for a collaborative approach to promoting behavioral change and mental health; clients may select to work with both a coach and therapist from the Halcyon team to accelerate growth and address challenges across multiple areas. 

Our coaches are prepared to assist clients in the following areas:

  • Procrastination
  • Work-Life Balance
  • Personal and Professional Organization
  • Stress Management
  • Personal Motivation
  • Improved work performance
  • Clarity around decision making
  • Time management
  • Self Confidence and Self Compassion
  • Communication Skills
  • Behavior Systems for Children

Coaching is intended to:

  1. Identify clear, obtainable goals and the steps necessary to achieve them
  2. Identify patterns of thought and behavior that are interfering with the achievement of those goals
  3. Assist in creating and implementing plans and systems to address interference and achieve goals
  4. Monitor progress and maintain accountability, help troubleshoot obstacles that may arise and adjust as need

Coaching is NOT intended to:

  • Address severe acute distress
  • Explore or resolve past traumas
  • Treat mental illness

Please note that receiving coaching services will never exclude or prevent you from receiving psychotherapy services at Halcyon. Our coaches work closely with our therapists and, if appropriate, we can work as a team to provide both therapy and coaching sessions (subject to provider availability). Our coaches are also very happy to collaborate with a pre-established therapist outside of Halcyon around your goals and progress.

    In the wake of COVID, all services are provided virtually: individual, couples, parenting, and group therapy to help address these concerns. We will focus on identifying goals specific to your current needs which often include emotional awareness and regulation, organization strategies, healthy communication, interpersonal skills, increasing focus, and psychoeducation.
