APPROACH TO COUNSELING
Therapeutic Solutions Inc. utilizes a cognitive-behavioral model of treatment that focuses on thinking, feeling and behaving. We have a very practical, solution-oriented approach to counseling. The first step is helping the client to identify the problem(s) in their life and then developing an action plan to cope with the problem and resolve the issue(s). We encourage clients to take responsibility for their behavior and use a variety of self-improvement tools to prevent hurtful behavior and track their progress. These tools include: prevention plans, journals, positive self-talk, workbooks, art therapy and situation scripting-tapes. We are firm believers that people are inherently good, but they sometimes do destructive and hurtful things to themselves and others.
