One of my favorite graduate school professors called counseling “a conversation with a purpose.” The counseling process is about you as a whole person: your values, goals, past, future, ambitions, relationships, family, career, balance and fulfilment. It’s the opportunity to understand yourself in a focused and productive way, through a relationship of unconditional empathy.
In counseling, many have been able to approach their lives with fresh perspectives, set more effective goals, maintain better boundaries, and move ahead personally and professionally. Ultimately, my mission is to help you work through anything that’s holding you back, building the future you want. Through our self-growth focused, collaborative process, I’ll meet you where you are, and we’ll develop a plan forward together.
Counseling is for everyone: teens maneuvering through life challenges, overwhelmed young adults and parents juggling bills and family, ambitious executives wanting to strengthen careers and leadership skills. Give Prosper Counseling a call today to see how we can help.
