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.
Kim Shaffer, LCPC empathizes with your struggles and believes 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 her belief that you know at least on some level what change is needed in your life. Therefore, she is 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.
Kim Shaffer is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with years of experience. Her theoretical approach to counseling is multi-modal with strong solution focused and cognitive behavioral influence to empower you and motivate change.
