Clients often walk away with a greater awareness of their own strength after meeting with Lois. She is an attentive, thoughtful listener who genuinely cares about her clients. She aspires to help those who come through her office to develop a more accurate view of who they are and increase their awareness of personal resources, internal and external. Problems, though initially heavy, can prod the curious toward discovering more effective ways of thinking that lead to greater success. Additionally, they can jumpstart increased capacity for personal growth and character.
Mrs. Griffith looks inside and outside of the box for thinking strategies that work. Many clients comment during a session, “I hadn’t thought of it that way,” or,” I never saw it quite like that, but it makes sense!” So often a person can become stuck in one limiting perspective and once that pops, new possibilities present themselves.
The client will have opportunity to learn how to:
•work with the design of their brain for greater efficiency and satisfaction in relationship to themselves and others.
•explore patterns of thinking leading toward increased contentment.
Recently, Lois moved Heart Strength Coaching into common office quarters at 1040 E. Herndon, Suite 104 in Fresno (near First & Herndon), with other Clear Thinking Counseling Alliance counselors and life coaches. This allows for energizing and beneficial collaboration as well as increased counseling, coaching, and class options available for clients and their families.
She offers neurofeedback through BrainPaint, a program designed with brain wave training to teach the brain to work at its fullest capacity to switch gears as needed for the task at hand.
