My Approach to Helping
You are an expert on your situation. You understand it better than anyone because you are always in it, but when is the last time you stepped away to look at it from a new perspective. It may seem impossible, but it’s not. My approach is focused on helping you feel that you are whole, capable, enough, and doing your best - because you are.
Maybe, you just need some new skills to cope with all that goes on in your life. It’s not that you aren’t enough, it’s that all you have learned in life never covered this. We will work together to implement practical skills, create new habits, and get you moving again.
Something that I want to make clear is that I am not your “usual” therapist nodding and asking “how does that make you feel?” While it is a question I’ll be called to ask you, my approach is far more active and engaging. I will be a compassionate and active participant in your healing journey.
More Info About My Practice
You should be doing more. Right? You probably hear that sentence in your head a few times a day. If we took a peak in your head, we would see hundreds of hurtful, devaluing statements swimming around, waiting for the moment to strike. My practice helps people like that.
We know that you aren’t alone in what you feel and we understand that, from where you stand, it may feel there is no way forward, but there is. At Eddins Counseling Group, we are in the business of helping people really live their lives.
We understand that this may be hard for you, but there will be support every single step of the way. This path is not one you will have to take alone.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Something you might not realize is that your thoughts impact more than just how you feel about yourself. They impact how you feel about food, your relationships, your work. They do strange things to your body. For example, do you have a lot of headaches, stomach issues, or just pain with no clear cause? My practice takes each of these issues, finds the sources, shows you how to free yourself, and supports you every step of the way.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Therapy, or psychotherapy, is a practice that shifts your perspective one conversation at a time. What you are feeling is not an indication of who you are and in therapy, we take these beliefs apart and work to find the source. To be sure, what you are dealing with is painful and heavy, but together we can stop these feelings and get you back to living your best life, a life you worked very hard to build.
My Role as a Therapist
A guide, a mentor, and a neutral party that has a degree or two in how the mind works. I am a perspective that isn?t aimed to hurt you, but maybe point out how you might be hurting yourself and working with you to figure out how to fix it.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Don?t worry, it?s okay to be hesitant about new things. I just want to ask you one question, what is it costing you to live this way? Consider that deeply.
The sad reality is that the cost you face is a big one. It can impact your relationships, your physical health, your career and of course your emotional health. Life is short and therapy is an investment in you and your future. A little bit can go a long way!

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
You need to be honest. Yes, with us, but more importantly with yourself. What is ailing you? What kind of support do you need?
There is no way you can know everything about choosing a therapist unless you are a therapist. What is important is that you are willing to try new ways of thinking and are prepared to do the work to get to those better days ahead.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
Going to therapy doesn't mean you are weak or flawed. It means that you are able to perceive an issue that is making your life worse and you are willing to do something about it. That?s a kind of strength people can only wish for.
