Choosing a Counselor who is a Good Fit for You

Choosing a counselor who is a good fit for you is an important, personal decision. Each counselor or therapist has certain types of people with whom they work most effectively. I’ve put together a list below of some of the traits and behaviors of clients with whom I’ve achieved the best results in my work. I might be the right counselor for you if any of the following apply to you:

  • You worry about the future.

  • You spend a significant amount of time thinking about situations or relationships.

  • You enjoy learning new things, and try to learn from your mistakes.

  • You try to improve things by identifying what you can do differently and working on that.

  • You feel guilty or anxious when you displease others.

  • You have very high expectations of yourself.

  • You are a sensitive person, and like to understand what happened and cause and effect.

  • You put others’ needs before your own, and end up feeling resentful sometimes.

  • You want to be able to talk through a problem.

  • You want to help others understand why there is a problem.

  • You are self-reflective and take responsibility for solving problems.

  • You view life as an opportunity to improve yourself and enjoy developing your capabilities.

  • You are willing to change in order to improve a situation or relationship.

  • You feel overwhelmed with your current struggles.

If any of these things sound like you, I hope you’ll email or call me to set up a free 15 minute phone consultation. I’m looking forward to meeting you and playing a part in your journey!
