What is counseling in a nutshell?

Going to counseling can be a bit daunting and scary for some of our patients, so I often try to simplify it.

So what is counseling in a nutshell?

We show people strategies or “brain hacks” to “zoom out” on the things that don’t matter, or things that matter but we have no control over.


We help folks to “zoom in” on the things that do matter, to create a life that is meaningful, true to who we are, AND at the same time, workable in the real world.

It’s not too mysterious.

Some may think that it’s only relevant for those with a “mental health disorder”. But it’s not. It’s relevant for everyone really.
