Coaching and Psychotherapy

Deciding to seek help can be anxiety provoking. After all, sharing our deepest thoughts, fears, and life goals doesn’t come naturally to most. My goal is to create a non-judgmental and collaborative space where you can explore what is currently challenging you, and most importantly, create the necessary changes that will result in a more fulfilling life.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is coaching?

In essence, coaching is a partnership between coach and client that aims to support the client at every level in becoming who they want to be. Your coach will ask a number of meaningful questions, which are designed to help you identify what you really want in life. Your coach will also ask you to discover what beliefs or habits may be holding you back from achieving the goals you have set yourself.  Together, you will create an action plan with a number of concrete, attainable steps. You will be an active participant in the process and are expected to engage in behavior designed to move you closer to your main goal. Your coach will never tell you what to do with your life. A coach will challenge any preconceived notions you may have about what you are actually capable of.

How does a coaching session work?

Initially, you will often find that coaches provide you with a questionnaire to fill out before your first meeting. These questions are usually designed to help you think about what it is you want to change in your life and what you feel is currently holding you back.  It’s okay if you don’t have all the answers, as your new personal coach can help you figure them out. Most personal coaching sessions will last around 45 minutes. During your session, you and your coach will speak about what has happened since your last meeting and any goals you would like to set yourself for the upcoming period of time until you talk again. As you speak, your personal coach will be able to offer ideas and provide you with a number of resources you can use to help you achieve the next step of your plan. Your coach will use approaches and techniques that will be the most effective in helping you get what you want.

How can psychotherapy help me?

Psychotherapy is a wonderful tool to help people live happy, fulfilling lives. Therapy addresses a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, and grief, but therapy can also be used for purposes other than immediate concerns. For example, if you are struggling with the stress of moving to a new school or embarking on a new career, a therapist can help you develop strategies for managing the stress to get the most out of the changes in your life.

What are psychotherapy sessions like?

Psychotherapy is designed to provide a non-judgmental environment in which you can feel connected, supported, and understood. You will quickly learn that, despite your concerns, you are not alone, and that you will have a partner in your efforts to overcome whatever situation or condition may have brought you in to treatment.

 

About Me

Hi! I’m Leandro (aka Your.TikTok.Therap1st)! I am a lifelong student and a citizen of the world.  I studied Engineering, Computer Science, and Mathematics until I settled on the field of Psychology. I’m fascinated with the struggles and possibilities of human experiences. I enjoy travelling around the world and learning about cultures and languages.

 

I’m a board-certified psychotherapist, coach, dad, husband, marathoner, and mental health advocate. Through my training and my own experiences growing up, I’ve come to understand the struggles of being a teenager during these complex times. I’ve overcome my own challenges to thrive as an adult, you can do it too!

 

I understand teens and young adults. Because I struggled as a teen and because therapy helped me tremendously, I have dedicated years of studying to understand and help others. Over a decade’s experience of working as a therapist has given me the knowledge that has made my TikTok account one of the most popular therapist accounts in the entire world. Due to my popularity on social media, teens and young adults relate to me and are eager to work with me, therefore avoiding the common barrier of seeking help and and making faster progress towards goals than they otherwise would since the rapport is already there.
