My Commitment to My Clients
Portland Counseling Services which I Provide
Counseling / Therapy with an Integrated Approach
An Integrated Counseling Approach
Given the mind-body unity, I work with my clients from a holistic perspective which considers that the issues with which they are working typically affect the whole person (mind, emotions, body, and, if you allow, spirit).
Therefore my Portland counseling practice provides my clients with an integrated therapy approach which blends the variety of therapeutic modalities in which I have been trained.
Therapy Approaches Which Influence My Work
The primary counseling methods in which I have been trained, and which influence my work include the following:
Other therapy modalities in which I have been trained include neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), Focusing, meditation / mindfulness, and hypnotherapy.
My counseling approach generally integrates these different ways of working with clients. However, it’s not uncommon that prospective clients may seek me out for work in only one way, i.e. transpersonal.
Note that I have organized my website (see above menu) to provide you with an in-depth discussion of these influences, should you be interested in further information.
Types of Changes My Counseling Clients Seek
The types of changes which my clients typically bring to therapy typically include problems in functioning and in relating to themselves and others.
Also clients often work with me to help them find personal meaning in their lives. Others simply want to find themselves, or become more authentic. I also guide clients to discover their own personal spirituality, and deepen their own spiritual realization. Of course, results may vary from client to client.
