Are you feeling stuck in your life?
Do you feel out of control, anxious, afraid, doubtful or depressed?
Do you want objective and nonjudgmental help to sort out some personal problems or questions?
Are you dealing with some life, personal, family or work transitions that could use more clarity and intention on your part?
Are you needing to make some changes so that you can be living the life that you want to be living and being more of the person who you want to be?
Do you want to be in a multi-culturally-aware setting that is inclusive of all types of sexual and gender identity, fluidity and expression, and sensitive to racial and class bias?
Successful individual growth is a process of self-examination, self-discovery, self-reflection, and self-actualization. It is about taking yourself seriously, spending time getting to know who you are, what you like about yourself, and what you want to change. It entails prioritizing self-care and wellness, letting go, taking action, and allowing patience through the bumbling process of personal growth.
Personal insight-building, positive growth, and lasting change occurs when there is collaboration between the client and the helping professional. Collaboration increases trust in the process, in yourself as a client, and in me as your guide and helper. This work is a vital balance between the willingness of the client to venture into self-examination and a commitment to risk change and the steadfast assurance of the helper to compassionately witness and foster this journeying.
Individual work can help you to:
- Understand yourself better: why you make the choices you make and why you do the things that you do (that may or may not be helpful to you, your life, work or relationships).
- Figure out what changes you need to make and how you will make them.
- Acquire fresh ways to think and feel about yourself – your past, your present, and your future
- Learn positive coping strategies to maximize the strengths that you already have and learn more to add to your skill-set
- Feel empowered to make the necessary changes to help you be who you want to be
