Karren Garrity's Care Philosophy
Life in our contemporary society is far more complicated and stressful than in previous generations. Our coping skills are continually being tested, it is important for us to learn new ways to handle life's changing demands and challenges.People and problems do not exist in a vacuum; home, school, work, and social environments, as well as cultural heritage, are important factors in how we feel and act. It is vital for us to acknowledge and understand these influences. Counseling is a process of exploring, clarifying and identifying what we require in order to feel better about our lives.We need to be able to understand and express our thoughts and emotions. Emotional literacy is a crucial step in the therapeutic process.We will work to sort out mixed feelings and make desired changes in behavior. We will strive to create goals that include life satisfaction and self-acceptance.
