My counseling approach is to enter into a professional therapeutic relationship with (you) the client in which (I) the Professional Counselor assist you in exploring and resolving challenging life issues. I believe that the Professional Therapeutic Relationship between client and therapist is the key variable in facilitating positive changes. The counselors techniques utilized will vary and will be based on the information gathered in the clinical assessment. You will work with your therapist to focus on your needs and develop your treatment goals. It is imperative that you be involved in the goal setting process to enhance your growth. To achieve personal growth it is necessary for you to assume responsibility for your actions, decisions, and behaviors. Therefore complete responsibility for the direction of treatment rests with you (the client). In addition to this the outcome of your counseling depends on your compliance and progress in treatment.
