We are built as a relational being. We don't live in a bubble and can't survive in isolation. We look to thrive beyond our four walls to feel that connection and happiness (maybe even joy). But relationships are tough to navigate, especially in today's changing society. Even before a pandemic, we knew that without connections we can easily feel lost. So that is where relationship coaching can change you! The 90-day programs are built for lasting change.
Change!! That's r ight the number one benefit is change and through the coaching process the hope is that it is more than just reading a book for information, but developing a new path to your everyday life. Sure you could do this on your own, but often coaching is used to enhance or even get out of a stuck place in your relationships. Not sure if it is right for you? Contact Rick for more information.
Rick loves what he does! In college he fell in love with the idea of family counseling from a book called, "The Family Crucible." From there in graduate school, he explored numerous types of systems/relational counseling. He realized the advantages of both counseling and consulting work and started a business right out of graduate school with his wife Amy. He soon realized the pitfalls of our healthcare system and insurance billing for counseling services. People just had ordinary problems and didn't have Major Depressive Disorders or Agoraphobia. Rick decided to devote more time to writing books and resources for parents and also do nationwide trainings. But all that work also lead to burnout and to refocus on his family. Focusing on his Christian faith allowed to return to counseling & coaching work remotely. But then in 2021 Rick was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Talk about a shock for an otherwise healthy 47 year old. Thank God it wasn't cancerous and the surgery removed all of it, but learning to rewalk and being dependent on his family once again changed his perspective on life. So here we are today, coaching others in what Rick feels is one of the most important areas of life -- your relationships! Do you want to know one secret about relationships? Focus on your relationship with God first and the other relationships will more easily fall into place!!

Well, Rick isn't here to push one denomination down your throat. But if we look at social constructs, we have certain beliefs that hold true regardless of denomination. Just as we hold true that in America we drive on the right hand side of road and not sidewalks or the left hand side of the road so to are Christian beliefs. If you'd like to explore this deeper with Christian Spiritual Coaching that is coming in 2023 or if you want to use a different perspective other than Christian than let Rick know. Rick's hope though is to one day see you too in heaven forever.
