Asking for any sort of help is incredibly brave.
During a counseling session, there are many different avenues, therapies and techniques that i use to achieve your goals in getting your best life. The process usually has a beginning, middle and an end. The beginning is a means of getting to know you and design a process that best fits your unique style, situation, budget and personality. We will build a relationship that you are most comfortable with, so you can feel safe and be able to speak freely and release what is on your mind.
The initial stage of our work together is to complete a protocol. The protocol is an integral part of the therapeutic process.
This can be done either together, or you can fill it out yourself, and we can go over the details that are about your world. We do this so that we have a clear understanding of the things that are important to you. This protocol is important. think of it this way; would you go to a surgeon or a specialist and let him operate on you without an examination? No, you would not want someone to work with you without carefully getting to know your world, your circumstances and who you are and how it effects you. The vital information you present, helps us navigate the therapeutic process, and creates the information needed to provide, relief of symptoms and emotional baggage. It's central to facilitating the process of creating a skill based therapy which relieves distress and restores health and resolution.
During the first phase of getting to know you i will support and guide you on your journey of reaching your best life.
I use many different therapies during our time together so we can assure your comfort and a growth.
