What is counseling?

The path to resolving life's problems

Relationship

Counseling begins and ends with a professional relationship between a client(s) and his or her therapist. We take great care to build trust, communication, mutual respect and empowering collaboration.

Goals

The counseling process starts with assessing the real problems that you are seeking to resolve. From there specific, attainable and mutually-agreed upon goals are defined and continually assessed throughout the counseling journey.

Skills

With agreed upon goals in hand, we begin the hard work of dicovering the necessary skill-set to help you meet your goals. This often includes insights around your personality, strengths, successes/mistakes, family-of-origin, vocation and hobbies.

strategy

Developing a workable game plan that includes the determined goals and skills launches the client into the working stage of counseling. It also keeps us on course to resolve the problem. Each game plan is unique to the person and the issue they are resolving, but the aim is always the same - to resolve the problem in the quickest and healthiest way possible.

context

Counseling comes in different forms: individual, couples, family, and groups. Your specific circumstances, comfort level and needs determine what context you'll most benefit from. Most people benefit from engaging in two to three different forms of counseling.

process

Professional counseling follows an established and proven process to get from one's problem to resolution. Counseling is not a quick fix to long-term problems. It is a process that takes time, patience and perseverance. The great news is that there are lifetime benefits from working the process all the way through.
