The Counseling Experience
Whether you're skeptical, eager, scared, hesitant, or curious:
Give yourself the opportunity to explore what it could feel like to be seen & listened to.
Afraid to share your
thoughts, feelings, & experiences
with a stranger?
Me too, spending time truly getting to know one another and seeing if we work well together is the only way counseling works effectively.
Feel like you should be able to handle what you're dealing with on your own?
You're already doing that, and
it's likely overwhelming and exhausting.
Consider if you're open to experiencing what counseling support could feel like.
Prefer to handle your emotions by thinking your way out of them instead of feeling them?
I think we all do to an extent.
And at some point, many of us have the thought that it isn't working, at least long-term.
Counseling will challenge you, but in the healthiest of ways.
I help individuals become as much of a priority in their own lives as they make other people.
Beginning counseling is a unique process that stirs up various emotions because of the "don't know what to expect" feeling. To me, the opportunity to talk one-on-one through a free 15-minute consultation is the best way for you to consider if I am a counselor you feel you could connect with and meet what you’re looking for. Connecting through a call gives you the ability to get a sense of how our personalities could work together, learn more about my approach to counseling, and ask any questions or concerns that may come up for you. I don’t believe there should be pressure to immediately commit to working with a counselor, instead, the focus should be on your comfort with what starting the counseling journey could feel like.
