Thank you for taking the CVI

Thank you for taking the Core Values Index (CVI). We hope you found the initial summary of yourself through the CVI interesting. We at Core Values Counseling want you to know ways the CVI can enrich your life and why upgrading to the full version of the CVI is a must!

Understanding how we process information and view the world around us both Yourself and Others.

Recognizing a person’s classification as a Merchant, Innovator, Banker, or Builder cannot be fully explored without the numbers derived from Taylor Protocol’s patent pending algorithm, contained in the full version of the CVI. Each score gives a comprehensive picture of the internal wiring and unchanging nature of an individual. The full version of the CVI tells people how strong they are in their core values and the energy they bring into the world. Equipped with the numbers from the CVI you can learn how to shift into different core values, understand the internal wiring of those around you, and gain powerful insight about yourself. (Offer an unpacking by the coach or counselor/ or CVC site with unpacking video once you upgrade)

Understanding our Triggers and Conflict Strategies

Conflict is based in our core values. We innately view the world through this “core value lens”. The numbers that are revealed in the CVI’s full version allow you to learn what triggers you. At Core Values Counseling we provided conferences that help individuals and couples learn how to shift from one core value to another. We also teach couples about how their CVI classification/numbers impact their relationships and show them how to work through situations that cause conflict without triggering each other’s defenses. Our ultimate goal at Core Values Counseling is to help people define their core values, find their passion, and establish their purpose, both individually and as a couple. ( Also offer a video on conflict resolution once they upgrade)

Relationships matter so see how well you are aligned with each other by taking our short relationship assessment.

Conflicts occur in every relationship. As humans we seek to connect with someone who we share/align our core values with. Struggles come from having unmet expectations in dealing with what we believe about these core values and how we implement them in the way we live out our lives with your spouse. So Everyone in relationships are subconsciously thinking about these 3 questions. 1) Are you there for me. 2) Do I matter to you? 3) Will you come when I call?

Core Values Counseling is committed to helping people get a full understanding of their mate. Through Couples or individual counseling, couples or individual coaching, Couples conferences, Online help webinars, and resources through blogs and other recommendations.

Understanding our Learning Styles

The numbers embedded in the full version of the CVI provides valuable information about how a person learns and performs. Higher numbers in particular areas have a direct correlation with a person’s ability to process information and perform tasks well. The numbers provide an accurate and reliable picture about what motivates an individual.

(Provide a learning Style handout and video leading someone through the process to understand themselves more in how they learn)

What the CVI was created for, to help business get people in the right positions.

Taylor Protocol developed its CVI assessment to find top performers for positions for any company. while screening out a vast majority of future low performers. The numbers from the CVI not only dramatically increases the success rate of finding top performers, but it also saves time, money, and resources by finding the right candidates and eliminating those who are not going to prosper in a job because of how they are wired and the tasks involved in the position.

Contact the coach/counselor you took the CVI from or to learn more about using the CVI in a company.

Heath and well being during the COVID-19 Pandemic


PLEASE CALL 503-869-8108

During this time of uncertainty and the world feeling upside down, we want you to know we are here for you.

Anxiety, depression, PTSD, and relational triggers are at an all-time high!

Anxiety is out of control. When we hear so much bad news and we have no idea when this pandemic will begin to reverse, it can rattle even the calmest among us, but for people who already struggle with anxiety, it can be crippling. Whether you are new to the emotion or it is an old bedfellow, talking to someone and finding ways to cope and move forward can be incredibly helpful.

Depression is also something that is normal when we stop all normal activities, find ourselves homeschooling our kids, working from home, in isolation, or are grieving the loss of a job, loss of your health, or worse yet, loss of a loved one. Maybe you feel like you shouldn’t be depressed because you haven’t had a “major” loss, but instead, you are feeling low and out of sorts because you couldn’t go on your vacation, throw your child a birthday party, or attend Easter services. We’re here to tell you, if you are a human on planet earth, at this moment in time, you have a reason to be depressed.

If you suffer from PTSD in any form, you are probably being triggered a great deal right now. Many people are feeling triggers that are elusive. You may not even understand why you feel these triggers that cause any number of symptoms from anxiety, to panic attacks to physical issues. This is understandable. Everywhere you turn you hear of life-threatening illness, death, and loss of every kind.

Relationship distress is also a big issue right now. How could it not be? We are all working from home, navigating uncharted territory on every front and there is no end in sight.

You know you need help. You want to talk to someone, but how do you get these services when you are practicing social distancing? Online therapy, that is how we can help. Whether you need individual therapy, couples or help with your whole family, we are here for you.

We understand online therapy is different than seeing your therapist in person! However, there is some research that has found we are able to connect at a very deep level through online therapy. Not every problem is best served through online therapy. We will talk with you and assess if it is a viable option for you.

Please call us today. Whether you have insurance or not, we will do everything we can to get you the help you need.

We have several platforms to do online therapy.  Please reach out to us today.

We are here to ease your stress and give you tools to manage during this unprecedented time.
