Announcement icon Telehealth services available! While we're practicing social distancing due to Coronavirus, I'm using a HIPAA compliant Telehealth platform.
In a first meeting with a client, one of the most important parts of the session is to understand not only what brings a person into the office, “the problem” so to speak, but also to build out a framework of what the client believes will be the solution. What will it look like when things are better? Rather than pathologizing, I prefer to focus within the wellness model of counseling, identifying strengths and resources available to contribute toward a person’s personal counseling goals.
I believe that everyone’s life has meaning and purpose, that people have a unique perspective to offer the world. I also believe that when we’re in the throes of depression, anxiety, substance use, or some other condition, we get taken away from the realization of our true self. My role and approach as a counselor is to help assess underlying themes that reinforce the problematic symptoms and explore each person’s authentic self, helping the client regain connection with what’s important in life.
People seeking counseling may be in crisis, however can also just find themselves feeling “stuck” or generally unsatisfied with the direction life seems to be going. Seeking assistance in navigating through this journey is by far one of the most courageous things a person can do. In therapy, we form a working relationship to understand the problem, identify practical ways to make changes, and continually assess progress and personal growth. My passion in this work is to help others come to further understand themselves and live more centered, congruent lives.
