My Approach to Helping
There are some simple but profound moments that are embedded in my mind from the wisdom passed on through mentors, including professors in my graduate program. One that was stated in class, to paraphrase, is the only thing that is wrong with you is you think something is wrong with you. That goes along with James Allen's quote regarding how a man thinks -- "As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains." In our current cultural correctness we would reference this to all humans. Also, Louise Hay states "change your thoughts, change your life". I believe humans have the ability to change and how we think is the foundation to build change upon. Another concept I believe is people often seek professional counsel when relationships are in trouble, including relationship with self, which is the springboard that we use to interact in all relationships in our lives. I like to work as a collaborative team with clients to help them understand these concepts so they can reach the goals in their lives.
