Heart Centered Counseling

    Coaching with Steve

Hello and Welcome to my Coaching Page!

My name is Steven Tedrahn and I grew up in Orange County.  I moved here with my parents from Chicago when I was 2 years old. As a kid, I would ride my bike with my friends to Knotts Berry Farm which was not fenced in at the time.  I graduated from Kennedy High School, received my BA from CSULB, my Masters in Psychology from University of Santa Monica in LA, and I am a certified Life Coach. 

I developed a skill for listening to people very early in life.  It wasn't very safe around my house as I grew up so I developed some very unusual life skills.  Along the way I decided to act on my huge interest in psychology, get my masters degree and take up the work I was meant to do.  I received my relationship training while living in Hawaii at a private institute that trained people to be relationship coaches.  I lived for eight years at this research facility and became very good at working with couples, helping them to avoid many of the pitfalls that get in the way of successful relationships.  

I have been very fortunate in my life to have had many mentors that have helped me along my way. Because of my difficult childhood, I had to play catch-up as I reached adulthood.  The point of sharing this with you is this: if I can become a master at relationships, then you can too.  There is nothing that I have learned that I would not be willing to teach you.  Some of life’s lessons are  challenging, but this is why you are seeking out a coach - to make it easier to master them.  As it turns out, many of the really important goals in life require practice, persistence, and sometimes a different way of looking at things.  If we seek out guidance, encouragement and support when we are face to face with our challenges, we move through the challenges and achieve our goals more quickly.

Most clients discover the distressing things that have been bothering them are actually a lot easier to handle than they thought.  As a species, we are actually hard wired to remember pain and bad memories as a result of our mammalian brain and the evolutionary need to fight or run from perceived danger.  Allow me to be your coach so we can work together to resolve your challenges and achieve your goals.

I am very happily married to Karen and we celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary earlier this year.  I am a licensed pilot and love flying.  I have just written a book called "Notes from a Child Whisperer, How to Parent Your Difficult Teen".  I used my 12 years of teaching in the Anaheim Union High School District to share what I think parents most need to know to help their children transition through the teen years to happy, high functioning young adults.

I am offering an introductory fee of $50.00 per hour for the first 3 months and then we can re-negotiate.  I can meet face to face, by phone, by skype, or through email.  Fees can be paid by cash, check, debit card or credit card and are payable in advance.  After an initial free consultation, we can decide on how often to meet per month, sign a contract, and complete payment.  

Please call my cell phone at 714-240-5060 or email me at <sktedrahn@yahoo.com to schedule a free consultation. 
  I look forward to working with you!
