Counseling Approach is based upon a Cognitive Solution Focused model. The initial suggested approach is to determine the reactive behavior, emotional state, addiction, inappropriate thinking patterns and/or family dysfunctions. The initial assessment and data gathering shortens the early stages of counseling. The primary approach is based upon developing skills in cognitive thinking, understanding themselves and others to make better decisions, taking better care of themselves, and developing responsible actions consistent with the clients new understanding. Although our sessions might be intimate, psychologically our relationship will be strictly professional. You, the client, may terminate therapy at any time. If you desire the counsel of another therapist, do not hesitate to discuss this matter so that the Jireh Counseling Center therapist can develop adequate closure.
