I Can Help You Nurture a Healthier Thought Process to Improve Your Well-Being
A Realistic Approach to Counseling
My approach to counseling and therapy is to meet you where you are in your experience – not where anyone thinks you “should” be. I offer a safe and supportive environment where you can be authentic in the present moment, and when the time is right, we can step forward together at a pace that serves you in a manner that makes you feel comfortable, dignified and safe.
When you choose to participate in a Telehealth session from the comfort and discretion of your own home or office, I can work with you to find the most genuine and practical way to establish new and healthy thought processes that will ultimately lead you from where you are now to where you want to be.
Sometimes achieving this might take only a handful of sessions. Sometimes the process might take weeks, months or perhaps a more long-term series of sessions. There is no right or wrong length of time to work on your mental health.
Whether it’s your first session or a follow-up session, I will always welcome you into a protected and neutral environment where you can show up as you are, wherever you are in your thoughts and feelings, and from that place, I will help you navigate what’s next.
I Am Committed to Providing Private and Dignified Care
We All Need Help Sometimes
Everybody has bad days and off moods. Sometimes those days can start to add up to months or even years, or those moods can start to feel unshakeable. At Bush Counseling Service, I recognize that feeling off is a normal part of the human experience and there is nothing ‘weird’ or ‘shameful’ or ‘wrong’ with wanting and needing to improve your mental wellbeing. Mental health like physical health in that way. Sometimes we must work on it, actively, regularly and with intention, in order to see healthy changes, and sometimes, we need a little help to do that. (That’s why even therapists have therapists – we all need a little help sometimes!)
Ultimately as a counselor, I am here to offer you the guidance, support and space you need so you can work through the hard times in the healthiest way possible. The reality of our struggles is that they are temporary, but the experience we have with them is greatly shaped by how we perceive them. That’s why working with a mental health counselor can be so effective. You can learn to nurture healthier thought processes that will allow you to better align your perceptions with your reality and help you adapt and respond to mental health challenges in a healthy way.
