Everyone encounters difficulties in their life and needs a little help. Sometimes counseling is helpful, sometimes it isn’t. I believe in wellness and recovery; that no matter how difficult the problem may seem there is always room for improvement. Most of life is lived in the relationships between people. The counselor-client relationship is a novel relationship for better or worse.
In upcoming blogs, I want to talk about some of the things that helping professional’s do that are helpful and some things that are not. Like the rest of my writing, this is a work in progress.
If you have comments or questions please email me. While I can’t do individual therapy or consultation here on the internet, I will try to answer questions when I can. I also want to use this opportunity to talk about some misconceptions and problems in the mental health and substance abuse fields. Let me know what you think.
