No two people are the same. We all approach the challenges, stresses and joys in life differently.  And the journey we embark may not always bring us to our desired destination. Inspire Professional Counseling desires to journey with our clients to their desired destination.  Using our unique blend of empathy, understanding and appreciation of diverse individuals coupled with the most effective evidence based practice knowledge and practice techniques, our goal is to inspire our clients to be their best self.  

Our work can extend beyond the clinical session to incorporate a treatment team approach. Many of our clients appreciate collaboration with ancillary providers such as doctors, psychiatrists, teachers, IEP teams, Casas, social workers, case managers and even members of ones extended family systems.  We believe that the incorporation of this type of approach allows us to better understand our clients and their clinical presentation. Progress can be achieved sooner and a holistic approach to the treatment process allows our clients to appreciate and feel additional support. Overall, it is our goal that our clients feel acceptance, understanding and relief of the stressors and dynamics that hold them back from enjoying their best lift.
