What makes counseling work? A study found that resilience, relationship and faith make a difference. Together we can figure out your capacity for resilience - yes you have a capacity for change. One of the best things about counseling is building relationship. You can't know someone without allowing them to know you. Building that relationship is my primary focus and greatest strength. Believing that change is possible and using that belief can help your process. What are your values and beliefs? How do they guide you? I use my faith in my process, I will encourage you to use yours, whatever it may be - all are welcome.

You may be looking for help to decrease drinking or not playing as many video games. Perhaps you and your partner have hit a rough patch and need some clarity and understanding. Maybe you realize you are carrying hurts from your past that keep showing up in your present relationships. Someone may be saying, "you should see a counselor." If any of this sounds familiar, I look forward to meeting you! I want you to feel less anxiety and more peace and to feel empowered by proactivity rather than punished by reactivity. Whether or not you're ready for counseling, I welcome your call or email.

Life is unpredictable. Everyone struggles at some point in life. Sometimes the accompanying suffering tears at the very fabric of our understanding of ourselves and how we fit in the world. Life no longer makes sense. Life is not the way you thought it would be or should be. Unbidden desires, anxieties or depression come in to interfere with your ability to live the life you want. Others in your life behave in ways that disrupt your peace of mind and ability to live a meaningful life. Issues you thought you had dealt with long ago resurface in the present.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Columbia, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Columbia are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Columbia

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Columbia you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Columbia and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Columbia or family therapy in Columbia.
