Paths of Clinical Counseling and Consultation
Clinical Counseling is a process of change that occurs in a therapeutic relationship between the client and a licensed professional clinical counselor. Counseling is a way to bring awareness of past or current feelings and events to the surface so they can be acknowledged and alleviated. Specific strategies, tools, and techniques are used that are unique to the client based specifically on the client's issues and concerns. Counseling helps the client gain perspective and insight into his/her own emotions and behaviors. Therapeutic approaches are influenced by positive psychology, Adlerian, Cognitive Behavioral, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, with an emphasis on the healing power of counselor-client relationship.
AREAS OF SPECIALTY
How does Counseling work?
Counseling is a collaborative person-centered approach that can be done in individual or group sessions where you work on mental health issues. Counseling is more in-depth than Life Coaching but some clients benefit from both and strategies and techniques may be incorporated from both based on the client's needs. Counseling sessions last from 50-90 minutes (depending on the client's needs) and can be done face-to-face in my office, a mutually agreed upon location, or via Skype (this is especially helpful if you do not live near me and I welcome clients from around the world). If interested in Counseling call and set up an appointment.
