Curtis's Psychotherapy & Relationship Coaching to Help You Heal, Grow and Expand

                                 Curtis Knecht, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, License #12725, issued in 1978 by the state of California

You’re here to have a positive impact in the world, to live a life of joy & purpose and to be open-hearted, authentic and effective in your relationships.

Stand on Solid Ground

You know the importance of integrity – managing your own reactivity, taking full responsibility for your life and healing the wounds that hold you back from personal joy and fulfilling your purpose in the world.

You’re willing to do the work it takes to let go of negative habits, emotions and thoughts and step into your highest, most creative self.

Your goal of working with me as a therapist or coach is to stand on solid ground within your authentic self, be comfortable in your own skin and have a darn good time while you create success on your own terms.

If this sounds good to you, book a free consultation with me today to work out how we're going to make that happen.

A New You

I’ll teach you how to consistently shift out of limiting thoughts, feelings and patterns so that you may cultivate empowering relationships, personal joy and creative practices.

We’ll do this through conversation, exercises and assigned homework.

You'll identify your strengths, core values, life purpose and vision, learn how to be with your greatness without ego interference, and to name the real dreams for yourself that you nurture in your heart.

The Most Important Thing

We will design a safe and courageous space in which you will learn to manage the hard places: old wounds, self defeating patterns, shame, emotional pain, numbing, unhealthy habits and the negative beliefs that limit your joy. You will learn to “Put It on the Table with a Label” and so much more. 

Then we will do the hardest thing there is... we'll welcome and honor your authentic self, your strengths and places of genius (yes, you have them), your delightful qualities and core values. You will own and express yourself fully and the value you bring to your relationships and your life. 

The most important thing is the laughter we'll share as we do this. I guarantee it won't be comfortable (no learning ever is) but you will get what you came for and a whole lot more.  

This Is How I Work

I listen well, discern what’s important and offer practical approaches to healing and managing what’s getting in your way.

I teach you ways to set and maintain strong internal boundaries around the negative thoughts, so that you can take ownership and create from the positive qualities you trust. You will learn a daily practice of shifting out of limiting beliefs to take an empowering stance in your life.

I bring understanding, wisdom and a sense of humor. I am committed to radical transparency, truth and integrity. I cultivate courage, positive collaboration and a non-judgmental stance. I like to laugh. I will challenge you to be your best and highest self.

I offer a healing psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families. I offer relationship coaching so you can to grow and expand in your relationships. I integrate the two disciplines in a way that is rare and effective.

Coaching for Individuals

My coaching will take you from good to great, from your zone of excellence to your genius zone, from frustration to fulfillment. It’s a magical, mystery tour with a high purpose.

It’s a collaboration of two powerful people (you and me) that focuses on your life, your relationships and your reason for being alive at this time in the history of the world (aka your life purpose).

We create from your strengths, life purpose, love languages, personal and relationship values, and your deepest dream for having a positive impact in the world.

We name your limited beliefs, inner critic voices and self-sabotaging patterns – all the fears and foibles that get in the way of your fulfillment. We name them to tame them.

We look to what inspires you to move past obstacles and step into your best and highest self.
With that accomplished, you identify your heart’s desire, imagine how it will become your life’s reality and then, step by step, take the creative action that makes it so.

Psychotherapy and Coaching are available for Individuals, Couples and Families

I'd recommend Curtis to anyone

Curtis is both an amazing therapist and coach. We have worked in and out of both modalities over our two years together - the flexibility of his skill set being able to dip into both areas of expertise, as my life has called for each, has been wonderful. I am also a certified coach, and am continuously impressed with his approach and partnership. The results of our work together have been nothing short of life altering. I would recommend him to anyone.

Hire Coach Curtis to win your own Super Bowl

Curtis coached me, weekly or biweekly, for about a year and a half. I am convinced Curtis helped me listen to a small voice telling me to not make a huge mistake and to turn up the volume on another voice singing a song of beauty and lifelong contentment.

I'm not a football fan but I watched the Super Bowl this year. Like everyone else, I was dazzled watching Tom Brady come from behind and pull off the greatest upset in Super Bowl history. It was clearly Brady's talent but you knew a part of it was Belichick's coaching. Working with Curtis is like that.

What was also nice about working with Curtis is that he and I both recognized when I (we) had won and when it was time to quit. I will be forever grateful to Curtis.

Caring Coach

Curtis is a good listener. He provides a "safe" environment for one to explore personal or professional challenges. He comes up with insightful and useful tools that I have been able to use.

Try it, You'll like it! 👍🏼

To whom it may concern:

Whether I was dealing with a personal crisis or I was just being coached with the intention of having a more fulfilling life, Curtis was there every step with solid good advice, wisdom and spirituality. I came to realize no matter good or bad happening in my life the first person I wanted to share it with was Curtis, and I always came away from our conversation with a better perspective of my life. Curtis' concept of embracing the hero story or the victim story absolutely has brought so much richness to my life. Ask him about that! Life coaching with Curtis was a way for me to invest in myself and it paid off big time.

Love you lots, Brother!

The Coach of Coaches

I have known and worked with Curtis for a few months. He has a wonderful sense of putting people at ease, is highly intuitive and can access a level of intuition that makes him a very desirable and personable coach both personally and professionally.
