Be your authentic self!

Welcome to You Be You Counseling

The name of the practice was inspired by the Gestalt prayer and the importance for me in honoring the authentic identities of my client in the counseling process. 

I do my thing and you do your thing.

I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,

And you are not in this world to live up to mine.

You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful.

If not, it can't be helped.

(Fritz Perls, 1969)

As Abraham Maslow noted, “One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again”.

 

Seeking out counseling is that first step in overcoming fear and going forward toward growth. Please peruse the different areas of the site to learn more about the practice, my training and areas of expertise, and the tools that I utilize to help my clients on their personal journeys. I am currently seeing clients in person (limited availability) and utilizing telehealth. Feel free to book an appointment or email me with any questions you might have. Thank you for visiting You Be You Counseling!
