Why Wellness Counseling?

Wellness Counseling involves a paradigm shift from the pathology intervention model of mental health counseling. The emphasis shifts from evaluating & diagnosing to a prevention & intervention model, that involves treating psychological problems by incorportating a more mindful and holistic way of life and imparting knowledge of overall good health in areas such as physical, social/spiritual as well as focusing on psychological/mental and emotional well being.

My purpose at Dolph Counseling & Wellness, LLC is to assist clients to maximize their quality of life by discarding poor mental health habits and adopting healthy day to day practices. By empowering my clients to adopt the strength to be more present and aware of their emotions, cognitions and feelings.

I help clients to focus less on labels and diagnosis and more on how they can become a better version of themselves.

Therapy Techniques include:

  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Play Therapy
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy-Couples
  • Meditation, Breath Work, Yoga-Based Somatic Movement-In Training

My passions include:

  • Self-Care-Self-Compassion-Self-Worth
  • Mindfulness Lifestyle & techniques
  • Encorporating breathing techniques, yoga and somatic movement into my practice with all ages.
  • Encorporating Animal-assistance into therapy sessions.
Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we’ll ever do
