Welcome, and thank you for considering Kachemak Counseling. Our purpose is to provide high quality and results-oriented mental health services. 

 

Services

We offer Individual, Couples, and Family Therapy to adolescents and adults. Common reasons clients begin counseling include:

Trauma and Stress related problems

Anxiety and Depression

Mood instability

Life-adjustment challenges

Grief

ADHD

Obsessive compulsive behaviors

Relationship problems

Substance misuse and addiction

 

Our Approach

We believe in a person-centered, strengths-based approach that helps you to identify and implement the inherent abilities you already possess while learning new skills to move you in a more purposeful direction. The therapy space should feel safe and be client-directed in order to empower you to create positive change in your life. We also firmly believe that while expertise in therapeutic technique is important, it is the relationship between therapist and client that ultimately determines whether counseling is a positive and helpful experience.

Getting Started

Beginning therapy shouldn't have to be a difficult experience. Our goal is to make getting started as comfortable as possible. Our first session will be focused on relationship building and rapport. We will also discuss the reasons you are seeking support and what you would like to get out of counseling.

Frequency

The frequency of sessions can vary. We recommend meeting with new clients 1x/week for at least a few weeks to continue building momentum in the therapy process. After a period time and improvement, it is not uncommon to cut back to bi-weekly appointments. These decisions are a collaboration between you and your therapist based on the situation and personal preference.
