Finding happiness in life is often disrupted by “things” that get in the way. Whether it is anxiety from trying to meet the expectations of others, or relational issues between a family member or your spouse; not knowing how to navigate the appropriate pathway creates anxiety and fear. If individuals believe they are inherently hard-wired to fix their problems, when they attempt to deploy their self-directed methods to circumvent their problems, they often lose their way. As a result, what they truly yearn for is a pathway of hope.
Attitude → Emotions →Behavior
“Everything can be taken from a man [or woman] but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” ― From Viktor E. Frankl's, Man's Search For Meaning
In my 14 years of counseling individuals, as a Board Certified Christian counselor, I found that each individual is as unique as their issue. If their Attitude directly impacts their Emotions, then their self-belief effects their Behavior.
What they are truly looking for is to actualize a pathway thinking that informs them “how” to resolve their issues, so that they begin the restoration process to feeling more like themselves again, and summon the resilience to the become the best version of their “self.” Our counseling approach embodies the following:
Honesty. Our counseling environment is all about honesty. Laying on the table what is going on in their lives, honestly discussing why, and who they hope to become.
Trust. Our counseling clients learn to trust that what we discuss stays here, that we are working in a unique counseling alliance, all of which becomes the foundation of which is trust.
Hope. Our principle focus is on hope. We all yearn for a pathway to happiness, but that state of mind is rooted in one’s capacity to believe in yourself, that you have the capacity to change, and that very scaffolding is built upon hope.
Using the Hope-Focused counseling model, we endeavor to meet your counseling goals, guide you in a non-judgmental space, and to reflect on your inner strengths. We unpack your challenges to gain insight on “how” to co-construct a pathway through your life stressors. It is about finding your way back to a life that holds meaning and purpose. Hope is all about reclaiming your life, restoring well-being, and finding joy once again.
