Do you feel distressed but don't understand why? Have you tried different methods and it only helped a little but never get ahead? Have you ever wondered what the core issue is? Working with me might find you those answers. A lot of people ask who gets counselling, I believe that anyone who experiences stress could get a therapist; however, many have amazing family and friends that allow them to bounce ideas, inspire motivation, and provides insight so counselling really isn't needed. Most people wait till they are in crisis to get help which would mean a rough journey to baseline. Let's be preventative rather than reactionary.
My therapeutic orientation is existential-humanistic but I do employ other methods like SFT, CBT, OEI, and EMDR (details about what these are on my website) when my client needs something different. Therapy with me will manage the symptoms but we'll discover the underlying concern through the process. All of my clients walk away connected more to themselves.
Your first time to counselling? Then most likely you're unsure about what to expect. I provide a free phone consult to bridge that gap and help you find your answers. Returning clients to therapy already know the ropes but might wonder what makes me different. Thus far my clients felt my sessions promoted growth that others have not able to. Try it and see.
