Counseling Philosophy


At Mindful Mountain, counseling is first and foremost a dynamic and collaborative relationship between therapist and client. The main purpose is to actively engage in a process of self-discovery and open inquiry into the nature of wholeness. My foundational belief is that everybody is capable of change. Neurobiologists can now show us via neuroimaging that not only can each of us change our own neural wiring, but that relationships impact our neurobiology, in both functional and dysfunctional ways.

Our brains are, quite literally, malleable to the extent that we are willing to engage in changing them. The goal is healing, health, and wholeness, and the way we get there is by client and therapist coming together to explore problems and strengths, to clarify purpose and meaning, and to co-create solutions.
