Many times, clients ask us, “How did you come up with the name, “Step By Step Counseling?”

Many times, we are working with couples, families or individuals who are “overwhelmed.”  Clients come to us with a lot on their plate, and are at times feeling hopeless. Sometimes it’s easier to make small changes (small steps), rather than to try making huge life changes all at once.

Yet other times clients have this vision of how they want life to look like or goals that they want to reach and it can be daunting to begin those changes.  We practice, as cliche as it might be, one step at a time, just putting one foot forward in getting closer ideal place.  For us, we like the image of taking one step at a time, not rushing through, but being mindful, aware of what is around us and what we are capable of.  Let us help you, Step By Step with whatever you are going through!
