Counseling and Therapy | It’s Vital Role

Counseling and Therapy play a vital role in the lives of individuals today. Many seek counseling and therapy services not for just times when they are in crisis. More and more people are seeking counseling services for common daily issues. Long are the days that people feel they must suffer in silence and figure out their problems on their own. With the help of a Licensed Mental Health Counselor they are better suited to handle life’s seemingly difficult challenges. It does not take a complete breakdown for you to seek help with your life.

Counseling and Therapy | Why does it Help?

  • When you feel stuck and unsure what path to take in your life, having an outside observer such as a trained therapist assist in guiding you is helpful. We are able to see outside of your blind spots. We all have them.
  • You are better able to feel you have some tangible ways to deal with the situation you face. You are not alone and you feel supported in bouncing your ideas off of a non biased person who can think clearly outside of the mindset that you are in.
  • We are conditioned individuals with a set of behaviors that are ingrained into us. Humans tend to get stuck in our irrational ways of thinking. Individuals start to believe that our way is the only way.
  • Therapist are trained to assist in unlocking these patterns of thinking so that you are no longer pulling from the past to predict the future. When we do this it is determining our present moment and we are not seeing clearly what is going on in reality.

Counseling and Therapy | Best Methods Used 

I pull from many different techniques and methods that are tailor fit to suite each client as an individual. If you are suffering from anxiety, depression, and overall fear, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a great approach to use. In conjunction with CBT, I often use Narrative therapy. Together we challenge the story that you have told yourself from the past. We reframe it to make better sense of how this story is playing out today and causing the fear, anxiety and distress in your life.

Give counseling and therapy a try. What do you have to lose. You can only enrich your life and the lives of those around you. Start to connect with a deeper part of who you are. Come into alignment with the real authentic version of yourself. You will be changed forever.
