My Approach to Helping
Most of the time, we may be capable of dealing with issues arising from various aspects of life. Nonetheless, at certain points in time, we might experience challenges and struggle to untie the ‘knots’ in our own minds. In these situations, it makes it hard for you to function in daily life. It prevents you from moving forward to reach your full potential. To accomplish a simple task may become a struggle as you become overwhelmed.
"If it's to be, it's up to me!" is a favorite quote of mine. You can't rewrite your history, but definitely you can choose how to move forward. My approach is based on the principle that we are accountable for how much we allow the history to impact our life. Throughout the years we develop certain behavioral patterns in response to our lived realities. We learn how to express our experiences, thoughts, and feelings. Very often, we operate on auto-pilot, from our thoughts to our ways of coping. When our coping strategies become ineffective, we cannot move beyond a problem and eventually this becomes part of the cycle of our vulnerabilities. My role as a counselor is to provide you with professional support and guidance while working through the difficult moments
