By Catherine Tugg, Licensed Mental Health Counselor
To discover wellness, is a beautiful thing. It's the moment when you realize you've become an active participant in making your life more healthy and more fulfilling. It's your reward for making you a priority. For treating you and your body, the way it deserves.
MY COMMITMENT TO YOU
Hi everyone! Catherine here. I wanted to give you a glimpse on what to expect when you decide to work with me. I know starting anything new can be scary, especially when that thing means your spilling your guts to a stranger. But rest assured, you're safe with me.
When we meet, I will dedicate myself to learning you. I will foster a safe space for you to be human, a space where you can share your struggles without feeling judged. We will work as a team to identify all the factors that are influencing your current struggles and come up with a plan to overcome them.
I will act as your counselor but also your coach. Beyond offering a place to feel heard and accepted, I will offer you education on all the positive things you can do to improve your mental wellness. During this journey, I will provide you consistent support and encouragement because we all know how hard it is to sustain change without it. Luckily though, you've already done one of the hardest things. You've decided that you matter enough to take charge of your life, and for that, you should be proud.
I look forward to working with you. We are stronger together.
Receiving a thorough mental health assessment is critical. After learning about you, I will provide you with some intital education and help you come up with your next step.
INDIVIDUAL & FAMILY COUNSELING
In counseling, we will explore things further so we can develop insight in regards to what is really going on. We will then make a plan to create and sustain positive change.
GROUP COUNSELING & WELLNESS WORKSHOPS
Groups and workshops are a place for people to find genuine connection and support with others on a similar path.
"Somehow we've come to equate success with not needing anyone. Many of us are willing to extend a helping hand, but we're very reluctant to reach out for help when we need it ourselves. It's as if we've divided the world into "those who offer help" and "those who need help." The truth is that we are both.”
