Life can be unpredictable and throw us curve balls when we least expect them... or maybe you are experiencing the opposite and feeling "stuck". Counseling can provide emotional support, psychoeducation, skill building and create new perspectives, in an atmosphere of care and empathy, to approach these challenges in meaningful ways.
There are many ways to approach the issues you bring into counseling. Every therapist has their own unique style, skill set, and way of working with their clients.
Some of the methods, techniques and frameworks I use in my work are listed below.
