Counseling Beliefs/Core Values
-Client Positive Experience: It is a goal to have the counseling/consultation experience be an experience that is productive, professional and positive for all clients. Positive outcome in counseling is based on a solid foundation between client and counselor that is both professional and collaborative in nature.
- Strengths Based: All of us have our strengths and weaknesses. Effective counseling means the client defines interventions that work for him or her and through our collaboration we will work together to use interventions that makes sense and can be implemented easily and with idea of improvement as soon as possible.
- Professional Experience: We will work together to solve your issues or the issues you are having with your child/teen. The professional experience we have together might be very brief or more in-depth as is sometimes the case. Either way, we will work together to arrive at the best possible solutions to issues that are present.
