Step By Step Counseling’s Culture Statement

The only way to do great work is to love the work you do.” – Steve Jobs

We enjoy the work that they do.  We are not a counseling practice (agency or organization) that assigns clients to therapists, in hopes that it works out…or that, the particular therapist is the only one who has an opening. Our therapists specialize in specific populations, who they have obtained additional education and training to work with.  Our therapists all have a niche, clients who they enjoy working with.

We understand it takes courage to pursue your goals, to follow your dreams.  Our therapists understand that it takes baby steps to become more confident in yourself. It takes small steps to heal from traumas and let go of past experiences.

 

You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

Love is the absence of judgement.” – Dalai Lama

Our therapists are unconditional with their clients.  Our office accepts each person for who they are, and where they are.  Therapists show unconditional positive regard to the clients in their office.  This means that the therapist shows acceptance of the client by setting aside their own personal opinions or biases. 

We know we aren’t perfect.  We make mistakes, we have flaws. We are here to help create solutions to those problems not excuses.  Each person we serve has their own story and their own path. We want our clients to understand that we know they aren’t perfect and we are here to walk beside them as they face their fears and insecurities and become more confident in who they want to be.

 

 

Above all, be the Heroine of your life. Not the victim.” – Nora Ephron
