My Approach to Helping
"It is not the mountain we must conquer but ourselves",( Edmund Hillary, after climbing Mt Everest).This is true for all of us seeking good mental health and personal success as we are faced with self doubt and emotional confusion. My own actual mountain climbing experiences, and 15 years of counseling others, have taught me that we are all capable of overcoming our challenges and achieving our goals. My professional counseling and coaching approach starts with the belief that we all have the proven strengths needed to be successful, but may have forgotten how to use them in a positive and consistent way. I know what it is like to feel stuck and unable to fix my problems, and to have also engaged in self defeating behaviors. This is why it is important to have an experienced guide with you who can help you to identify the obstacles in your path, and assist you in planning how to move past them.
More Info About My Practice
CAS Counseling Services provides professional services for adults and adolescents with all types of mental health and life skills issues. All of these challenges can be effectively resolved by us working together to create a plan that will allow you to use your existing strengths to resolve whatever is standing in your way. This is the concept behind Solution Focused Therapy where the focus is on using your proven abilities to achieve your goals, rather than dwelling on the negative experiences of the past. This is a positive and effective form of counseling that allows for rapid success, provided the client is motivated and consistent in their efforts. The professional fees for CAS services may be covered by your insurance, or EAP. A sliding scale is available if needed.
