What can I expect from counseling?
Ultimately, your experience in counseling is entirely up to you. If you want to work on issues or concerns on a regular basis, I am more than happy to be that counselor. However, I am also just as passionate to be a sounding board for when you just need to process life or to just sit with you and witness whatever you are going through.
Counseling is a dynamic process filled with both exciting discoveries and difficult paths through dark places. It requires tremendous courage and vulnerabilities, but for amazing rewards. However, through all of this, I will be there to guide and support you.
At the end of counseling, my expectation is that you will leave with a deeper understanding of who you are and have worked to achieve the goals that you and I have set together.
I'm not in distress, is counseling for me?
Counseling is a dynamic process and a chance for you to explore your relationship with yourself. I encourage everyone to explore counseling even in the absence of mental illness because it is a unique experience to get to know yourself better.
