Welcome to Curfman Counseling
Psychotherapy is not about focusing on the problems in life, but more about solution building. Although it acknowledges present problems and past causes, it predominantly explores your current resources and future hopes -helping you to look forward and use your own strengths to achieve your goals. It works by helping you to overcome problems without tackling them directly-using solution building concepts to foster change and helping you to develop a set of clear, concise and realistic goals.
I empathize with your struggles and believe that you are equipped with the skills to create change in your life, though you may need help refining and identifying those skills. It is also my belief that you know at least on some level what change is needed in your life. Therefore, I am professionally trained to help you clarify your goals and guide you to see what is working for you, as well as, encourage you to experiment with new approaches to your problems.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 10 years of experience. My theoretical approach to counseling is “multi-modal” or eclectic with strong solution focused and cognitive behavioral influence founded upon and guided by a trauma focused model to empower you and motivate change. I employ Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Ego-State Therapy (DNMS) as they are extremely powerful and effective tools for making lasting changes.
The human spirit can overcome anything if it has hope. Addressing your mental health issues will help you find joy and access the reasons for living.
