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 are inherently hard-wired to fix their problems, when they deploy their self-directed methods to circumvent their problems, they often lose their way. What they yearn for is a pathway of hope.
Attitude -> Emotions-> Behavior
In our 13 years of counseling individuals, we found that each individual is as unique as their issue. If their Attitude directly impacts their Emotions, then this self-belief in turn effects their Behavior.
What they are truly looking for is to actualize a new understanding, a pathway thinking, that informs “how” to resolve their issues, so that they begin to feel like themselves again and become the best version of their “self.”
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 and that we are working in a unique counseling alliance, 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 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.
