My counseling philosophy is difficult to write about in a short document, but its basis is hope. Hope is what gets the depressed patient out of bed in the morning. Hope is the alcoholic putting the last drink in the trash. Hope is the teenager who goes to school the morning of prom even though they haven’t been asked yet. Hope is the individual holding the cell phone anxiously awaiting the telephone call; hope is what pushes the caterpillar through the cocoon and drives the salmon upstream. Hope is a horizon we head for, leaving nothing behind us but fear, and hope is what saves us from what we once were.

I understand that we, as counselors, do not affect change in others. Still, we are the sounding board and the craft that we provide in the healing process, which can only be understood in the counseling relationship. I believe that counselors are given a special gift to actively and empathetically listen to the patients. I trust the counseling process and recognize that I am powerless in “healing” the patient. But rather, I am the catalyst to assist in change.
