About Counseling

One of the primary functions of counseling is to help clients recognize their own strengths, uncover what is preventing them from using their own strength’s and helping clarify what kind of goals and person they want to be.

Every patient has some important rights in the counseling process such as the right of informed consent, providing the information they need to become active participants in the therapeutic alliance. As well, dimensions of confidentiality guarantee the patient a high degree of privacy which is central to the therapy process. As well, every counselor must abide by rigorous ethical codes of conduct to ensure patient safety and security.

The theories and techniques revered and deployed by the profession are extensive. Every counselor typically aligns themselves with a higher philosophical orientation such as psychoanalytic, Adlerian, Existential, Person-centered, Gestalt, Reality, Behaviorist, Cognitive-Behaviorist, Family systems, and the list goes on. Within each of these broader psychological orientations are a number of technical tools utilized to engage the issues a patient may be having or experiencing. And like all therapists and counselors, I have over the years, developed my own mobilizing practices and lean into the ‘here and now” of the time I spend with clients, an ahistoric approach that allows much more than a clinical exchange, but a person-to-person meaning-making opportunity in the here and now of the hour.

Psychotherapy is a part of my practice that is integrated into counseling as a higher, third-tier complement to therapy, that helps to see the gestalt or broader uniform parts as they look in a person’s life.  Counseling then allows a more focused prospect of engaging each client’s goal with strategy and tactical ambition.

From 3,000 scientific studies, the pronounced benefits of psychotherapy endure. The potentials of therapy are wonderful.
