About

What is it that makes a person decide to seek counseling? Most often it seems that people are needing a witness to their many different thoughts and feelings. There's something about truly being heard and accepted that creates an opening for wisdom. This wisdom generates healthy ways of viewing oneself, others, and the circumstances of your life. It helps to sharpen the skills which lead to a life of meaning. The counseling experience is like a workshop, where you can open things up, look at what needs to be cleaned, repaired, replaced. Your life is not a mistake. It's your assignment to live it beautifully. Sounds fun, right!
The way we look at something completely shapes our experience of it. Counseling helps develop true, more clear perspectives that work. Next is an examination of various life skills: how well we relate to others; how well we manage the energies within us...emotions and impulses; how well we cultivate the creativity that inspires us toward our goals.
There are roughly as many approaches to counseling as there are people who do it. Many wonderful techniques have come and gone. But the connection you feel with your counselor is the conduit for your work. Commit yourself to finding a fit that works for you. Reading these little profiles can give you a hint about a counselor's style. Now comes your call.
