My Counseling Philosophy
Most of us would never think of buying a beautiful, brand new dream car and driving it for ten years, 100,000 miles, without a tune-up, oil change, or tire rotation. Most of us would laugh at a person who thought that driving through the local car wash to clean and beautify only the outside of the car would keep the car running in the most optimal way. We would completely understand if that car started to break down, malfunction, and eventually quit. Think of life as that car. We cannot just run around “living” and keeping everything beautiful on the outside without some inside maintenance. My counseling philosophy is that every one needs a tune-up on the inside. My job is to help you tune-up your life in the area that is causing you a problem. There will be times when there may be a complete crisis and there may be times when there is just a little something that needs a little tweak. I will help you through either one of these situations. I will support you through the process, and the process will be worthwhile.
