Bethany Prescott, MA, LPC
“I choose to utilize a coaching model in my practice. This means that I use more direct guidance than a traditional therapist might. The way I conceptualize it is that my own thoughts, feelings, and life experiences are more ‘in the room’ than a traditional therapy model calls for. You’ll notice that I’ll openly share what my observations are, offer direct suggestions and ideas, give homework, point out patterns, and share my own feelings and experiences as a mother and wife.”http://bethanyprescott.com
