Counseling Services

Individual counseling provides an opportunity to work one-on-one with a counselor for guidance and support to resolve an issue, recover from an upsetting experience, explore thoughts and feelings, examine beliefs and work toward making healthy changes.

Individual counseling has many advantages that can benefit not only those who are officially diagnosed to have disorders, but those who are going through rough times in their lives as well. If you or your loved ones have thought of entering counseling as you go through trying situations, it may just prove to be the best decision to make. However, if you are still trying to decide if this is the right course to take, you can use my contact form to request more info to learn further about the importance of counseling and the benefits that it can provide.

We all suffer on some level and sometimes we stand in our own way, underestimating our ability to heal. Unconditional love toward self, creating a vision and working on decreasing the negative thoughts that cause depression, anxiety, low self-esteem is what I incorporate into my therapy sessions.

I utilize an Existential Therapy approach, CBT and ACT therapy to incorporate change and a shift in perspective. I believe in Faith Over Fear. Operating from a place of Love, Grace and Gratitude. These serve as a guide for our work together to align with your values, to live a self-directed and authentic life.

Individual Counseling for those suffering from:

 

Discovering Your True Self and Purpose

In today’s chaotic world, many of us find ourselves troubled and confused by worn out belief systems and self-sabotaging patterns. Discovery your true self and purpose is all about peeling away life’s preconceptions and removing the layers of self-doubt that prevent us from discovering the wealth of love and joy within.

Anger and Forgiveness

Forgiveness doesn’t mean forgetting or excusing the harm that was done to you. It doesn’t mean making up with the person who caused the harm. Forgiveness brings a kind of peace that helps you go on with life.

Shame

Shame is a painful emotion responding to a sense of failure to attain some ideal state. Shame encompasses the entire self. The thought process in shame involves self-focused attention.

Spiritual Growth

Spirituality, in a narrow sense, concerns itself with matters of the spirit. The spiritual, involving (as it may) perceived eternal verities regarding humankind’s ultimate nature, often contrasts with the temporal, with the material, or with the worldly. A sense of connection forms a central defining characteristic of spirituality – connection to something greater than oneself, which includes an emotional experience of religious awe and reverence. Equally importantly, spirituality relates to matters of sanity and of psychological health. Like some forms of religion, spirituality often focuses on personal experience.

Spirituality may involve perceiving life as higher, more complex or more integrated with one’s world view; as contrasted with the merely sensual. (wikipedia)

Emotional and Relational Wounding

Emotional abuse leaves few physical scars. Its victims suffer no broken bones, torn flesh or spilled blood. Still, those wounded might describe it as the most painful and destructive form of domestic violence.

Self Esteem/Self-Worth

In psychology, the term self-esteem is used to describe a person’s overall sense of self-worth or personal value. In other words, how much you appreciate and like yourself.
