Taylor and Nicole have, combined, over 20 years experience in the field as mental health and trauma therapists. Additionally, they are currently publishing their manuscript which is the final step upon PhD completion. Taylor’s data collection focuses on sexual trauma and offenders while Nicole’s focuses on the positive effects of purpose in life. Their past experience and intense work in their academic field of study allows them to have a keen eye on reading body language, delving deep into the minds of others, and understanding behavior at an expert level of precision. Given this collective knowledge, they intertwine this skillset with the practice of coaching to deliver a model that provides profound change in one’s life.
At Bryant & Katsaounis, we employ an eclectic approach to our coaching sessions to provide our clients with the most holistic approach to change. As with traditional coaching models, we apply the foundations of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy/Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The framework of CBT is rooted in the ideology that our thoughts affect feelings and our feelings, in turn, affect our behaviors; therefore, our thought patterns directly impact our behaviors. Additionally, not only do we employ this evidence-based model that receives accolades in Western medicine, but we also utilize techniques of Eastern medicine, rooted in the ideologies of Ubuntu practice. We help our clients understand the way everything in the world is interconnected and how their actions cause a ripple effect that can span a lifetime.
