Why "Be Counseling"?
“If you want to be happy, be” Leo Tolstoy
Life’s journey can be tough when you are suffering from mental illness, substance abuse or just generally struggling with the many obstacles life throws in your path. It becomes even harder when you feel you have to navigate life’s journey on your own.
At Be Counseling we help you to find a sense of ground and ease so you can focus on finding ways to manage and create a life that is fulfilling for you. We teach you the tools to navigate life’s journey in order to create healing and peace in your life.
When you investigate what is showing up for you with curiosity, kindness and an open heart, you can end the inner conflict and find a sense of freedom from the pain. This can lead to changes on a deeper level, which in turn can bring changes to the rest of your life.
“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change” Carl Rogers
There is a myth that the more you “fight” and get into conflict with yourself through harsh thinking, that only then will you be motivated for change.
At Be Counseling we teach you that in fact meeting yourself where you are at with compassion and being with your current emotions, thoughts and behaviors in a nurturing way can lead to long term change.
Be Counseling uses client centered therapy, insight orientated therapy, cognitive/behavioral therapy and mindfulness techniques to help you create the change you want in your life.
