My values surrounding therapy

  • Growth:  Everyone has the capacity to grow today towards a different tomorrow.
  • Health:  Physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.  It’s all important.
  • Collaboration:  Let’s work together to help you reach your goals.
  • Feedback:  From you, gives me insight into what you feel is working/not working or what you need more or less of.
  • Purpose:  Plans/interventions/approaches are connected to the issues you are bringing in.
  • Freedom:  You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do.
  • Independence:  It’s my goal to have you function well without me.

About By The Well Counseling

What’s up with the name?

By The Well is named after a woman who went for water and came back with something much greater (see John 4).  She didn’t know that trip to the well was going to be life changing.  In the same way, you may be closer to life change than you realize.

Is this Christian counseling?

Yes and no. It is if you want it to be. Some of my clients come here because their faith in God is important to them and they want that incorporated into their counseling process. I also have clients who have a different faith or no faith and choose me based on my specialty areas. I respect their belief system and don’t incorporate Christianity into their counseling process.
