My Approach to Helping

My name is Edi Wade. I'm a counselor who takes the approach that every experience is a learning experience in any season of life. When working with adolescents, adults, and couples, I strive to listen to the background my clients are bringing and use those experiences to help them incorporate tools and insights that are uniquely helpful to them. In doing this, it's impossible to pass judgement or tell my clients what they must do because we are looking at each experience for what it's worth, validating the emotions involved, and using techniques to improve psychological functioning.

I also think it's important to incorporate humor into therapy. Many times my clients are experiencing a major transition in life whether it be graduating from high school or college, getting married or getting divorced, a relationship ending, or a shift in roles that leads to the acknowledgement that things aren't going the way they might have planned. Making the decision to put oneself out there on top of all the hurt the initial event caused is difficult. Laughing helps.

I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Humanistic Approaches to my work with clients. Simply put, I use empirically backed interventions in a way that provides a holistic view of what's going on emotionally, physically, cognitively, and behaviorally. This means that my clients will learn tools and be able to process why those tools can be helpful in the first place.

More Info About My Practice

I specialize in work with teens, adults, children, and couples who need help managing depression, anxiety, mood, and relationship challenges. I like helping young adults figure out next steps during transitions. I am also fluent in Spanish and welcome new clients. Although I do not accept insurance, I offer reduced rates to private pay clients. I'm an avid consumer on all that is best and most helpful practices using counseling techniques.

My Role as a Therapist

I hold the mirror up and help you look at what YOU want to look at. I'm not one to give advice or force you to work on something you haven't identified as being helpful. T'm not the end all of life experience, because you're the one experiencing your life. I'm in the passenger seat asking you what you think would happen if we made a left or a right.
