About My Clients
Are you open to the idea of identifying strengths and giving yourself credit for the positive things you do day to day. Are you open to using these strengths to help better manage your anxiety and depression? Do you want to work on using these strengths to identifying a truer sense of self? All of this can be overwhelming to think about at once, but it doesn't have to be. Balanced Life Counseling can help explore these areas and more.
My Background and Approach
In my almost 15 years of working in this field I have been focusing my technique on being rooted in the idea of strength. My goal is simple: Help to identify strengths that you have, but may not give yourself credit for; help to increase your confidence and level of comfort taking credit for these strengths and the success you have; Utilize these strengths and successes to help strengthen self-identify, to help minimize anxiety, to help minimize depression. The trainings that I have attended and continue to attend ensure that I have the most up to date techniques to help with and encourage positive self exploration. You will not only gain better insight as to who you are as an individual, but also become more resilient when you find yourself needing it the most.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe change is constant. I believe that each person has an unique perspective on the world around us and that this perspective helps to guide us through life. I believe that in order to live our fullest life, we must work towards identifying and understanding what our unique perspective is. I believe in a world where questions are allowed. As a father, I encourage my kids to ask questions. Knowledge helps us to grow, both as an individual and as a productive member of our community. As a kid, I was treated for ADHD and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. It was these labels and the way that these labels caused others to treat me that led me to where I am. It was the different ways people would treat me when they learned I am Jewish that led me to where I am today. It was my Great-Grandfather telling me and showing me what it was to be steward of good, an all-inclusive human being that helped create my path.
