Find More Fulfillment and Joy

Flatiron counselingTherapy is an investment in yourself which can serve not only to help you problem solve but also to energize your life, actualize your potential, and better realize your hopes and dreams. The goal of therapy is to stop behaviors and belief patterns that have had negative effects on you and those around you and to create more of what you do want in your life; healthy relationships, meaningful time with family and friends, increased productivity at work, feeling comfortable in your own skin, and sustained peace of mind.

At Flatiron Mental Health Counseling, we strive to embody the values of connection curiosity, compassion, and collaboration within a person-centered approach to therapy, a non-pathologizing and empowering stance towards understanding human problems.

The human-to-human connection between the therapist and the client is paramount and provides both a foundation for change and a transformational relationship in which healing can occur. The therapeutic relationship provides a safe space that allows one to be seen, felt and understood through genuine curiousity about you, your beliefs, circumstances and inner world; as well as compassion, literally “feeling with” in the face of suffering, sorrow and the full range of human emotions.

We believe that each person has the capacity for change and is equipped with the inner resources to do so. Therapists who work collaboratively trust their clients to know themselves (or have the potential to know themselves) better than anyone else and help them to access their own inner wisdom that is always ready to support healing, change and growth.
