Counseling for Individuals
What is Counseling with Caelin Like?
It's easy to get the wrong idea about what counseling is like. I smile a lot and like to laugh. I'm gentle and my focus is on building you up.
I do everything I can to make sure that my approach fits who you are and what you want. I don't press my own ideas, beliefs or agendas.
Positive self esteem and confidence come from being able to manage your feelings so you can think clearly and be in control of your choices. Drawing from a variety of therapy models, I employ strategies that are safe and carefully paced in order to provide as much comfort as possible. Learning to understand, predict, identify and regulate emotions is often the first step towards relief. When addressing past hurts and traumas is necessary, I employ strategies designed to minimize the stress and emotional impact of this process.
What's holding you back?
You are probably considering counseling because there is a symptom or set of symptoms that you want to alleviate. I have helped individuals overcome symptoms like depression, anxiety, addictions, excessive stress, repetitive/unwanted behaviors, insomnia, work related concerns, loneliness, low self-esteem, grief, childhood trauma, troubled family relationships, troubled friendships, insecurities, panic attacks, trouble with communicating, and difficulty with making life decisions.
From Symptoms to Solutions
Describing symptoms is relatively easy but doesn't offer much help on creating solutions. Two people can have almost identical symptoms for completely different reasons. Figuring out what is creating the symptoms is the key. Once we have identified the source we can create effective solutions.
The best solution is the one that fits you. Together we will explore your strengths, resources and the limitations of your situation to find solutions that work for you.
If you are a person of faith, and so desire, I am happy to work with you to incorporate your spiritual life into our process.
