I’m not sure how I know if I should see a counselor?
If you’re feeling stuck or you keep questioning if you’re on the right path, that might be the right time to speak to someone outside your friend and family circle who can offer you an unbiased perspective and help you navigate a challenging point in your life or provide you with coaching around a specific life transition or goal.
M. Scott Peck, in his book, The Road Less Traveled, said, “Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.”
Sometimes we need a guide to help us navigate the course of life and find our way. I’m honored and privileged to bear witness to the lives of my clients and watch their transformation. You will come to find that you can survive, but you can also move beyond that and thrive.
How do counseling and meditation belong together?
If you come to see me as a counseling client, you don’t have to meditate or even desire to meditate. I do, however, incorporate mindfulness practices into my counseling approach and as part of our sessions.
