Step I: If you’ve never taken the MBTI assessment, or aren’t certain you have been accurately typed, determining your best-fit type can help unlock your deepest potential.
How it works: You take the assessment on your own time through a link I’ll send you, so we don’t waste any of your session time on paperwork. I will also give you very specific instructions on how to be in the necessary frame of mind for best results.
We will spend the first part of our session to talk about type theory, your life (work, relationships, family) and how your preferences have expressed themselves thus far. We will go through each of the dichotomies and collaboratively decide on the type that sounds like the best fit for you, and then we will reveal your results from the assessment. If they match, we have probably found your best-fit type, but if not, we will keep digging to figure it out.
Once you are comfortable that we’ve found the type that “gets” you the most, we can then use type to pinpoint areas of strength, predict potential blindspots, and most importantly, determine areas you may be living out of alignment with your truest nature. This is especially helpful for career counseling and general best-life coaching.
This can take place over the phone if necessary, although my preference would be to do it in person.

Step II: If you’ve taken the measure before, or are pretty certain you’re accurately typed already but would like to use the MBTI to dig deeper into temperament theory and your unique expression of your type preferences, you also have the option of taking the full 144-item (Form Q) assessment and scheduling a session specifically to explore your Step II results.
Step II uses “facets” to give you detailed information on where your behavioral expressions may be “in preference” (what we would predict for your type), “midzone” (somewhere in the middle, which is a lot of people’s objection overall) or “out of preference”, (e.g., where you might prefer Feeling but do things typical to types who prefer Thinking).
If you’re serious about using MBTI for significant personal growth, Step II is a game-changer. It gives you all those robust, idiosyncratic details that some people find the basic feedback lacking. It can help make sense of how you are, give you profound insight into how and why you might “show up” in ways not typical to your best-fit type, and give you context for explaining how you are to others. It’s a deep dive into analyzing yourself, so if you’re someone who enjoys meaningful self-reflection, this is going to appeal to you.
(Personally, I found this radically affirming, as an INFJ who commonly behaves in stereotypically “T” or “P” ways. Interpreting the results of Step II put my lingering doubts about MBTI to rest, for what it’s worth).
We will spend the time together going over your results in detail, seeing what you agree and disagree with, and discussing in a therapeutic way how we can use the information we gather from the report to achieve greater happiness, self-acceptance, growth, and authenticity in your life.
