Quick-View of our Coastal Light Crew
For those of you who garden, you understand the importance of pulling a weed out by its roots; otherwise, it will keep coming back.
Many counseling issues are like weeds.
We value taking the time necessary to explore your past and determine together the root causes of your issues.
Coastal Light Counseling?
What is therapy?
The process of therapy involves talking about our thoughts, emotions, and our internal states, but it is so much more than that.
Whatever you wish to call it—"counseling," "psychotherapy," or just "therapy"— these are all words for the same thing: allowing an expert into our inner worlds to help us rearrange, find more balance, and see ourselves and the world we live in from a new perspective.
Our Multicultural Commitment
We approach our therapeutic work with patients and the community from a place of cultural humility and cultural responsiveness. We recognize that none of us can hold a complete understanding of one culture, let alone the countless diverse cultures that comprise our world community.
Culturally responsive counseling means that we choose to maintain an active engagement in continuous learning about each person’s unique cultural identity, actively self-reflect & self-critique, & check power imbalances to create a space for cultural sensitivity.
If anyone needs a great team of counselors, I would recommend @coastallightcounseling
