The Counseling Experience


Our lives unfold in layers that are often associated with the major events and milestones we experience.

In time, new layers overlay the old ones, and the distance we begin to feel from those deepest layers can almost be charted on a map.

The core of who you are, how you think and what you believe lies within the stories of your layers.


Similarly, archaeologists use layers in the soil to help uncover rich histories and stories of the people

that left their mark where we now stand.

These layers are known as

stratigraphy

and disturbances in the soil stratigraphy can hold the key to unlocking the lessons and mysteries

of the human experience.



Your journey in counseling should be an educational and mind-opening experience that helps you

use the disturbances in your internal 'soil' to build new insight and awareness that facilitates personal growth and healing.

CBT & TF-CBT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are short-term, active approaches used to identify maladaptive thought processes contributing to symptoms of concern or distress. This psycho-educational treatment works to assist clients in developing increased skills, coping strategies and healing.

DBT

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is a highly involved treatment approach allowing the client and therapist to uncover negative thinking patterns contributing to extreme emotional experiences and/or self-destructive behaviors. The skills taught in sessions allow the client to begin incorporating positive behavioral changes that lead to a reduction in distressing symptoms related to presenting concerns. 

Person-Centered Therapy

Person-Centered Therapy focuses on the client-therapist relationship and facilitating an environment that emphasizes the client's own internal awareness and knowledge. The client's personal accomplishments within the therapeutic process provide individual growth and fulfillment.
