My Approach to Helping

Kolleen Blume LCPC. My approach to therapy is to guide the client toward understanding and resolution of what is preventing them from fulfilling goals. With empathy, I can provide suggestive coping mechanisms to help with events that can cause feelings of being ‘stuck’. Areas of focus include anxiety, depression, trauma, career change, and relationship issues. The therapeutic approach is mainly solution focus and family systems therapy. I typically work with clients who are experiencing anxiety, relationship issues and grief. Working with me may require you to be committed to making changes.

I emphasize people recognize patterns that may be holding them back from accomplishing tasks, communication, and lifestyle changes. I was interested in counseling as a profession so that I could give to others. I raised a family, volunteered in self-help groups, and realized that I could take my experiences to others. Goals can be set initially and may change throughout the duration of therapy. The emphasis is on the client’s desire to make changes.

During the initial intake, the client will be asked questions regarding presenting issues. Background, family dynamics, and past traumas will be discussed. The is client-centered and not pressured.
