Hello! I am Amy L. Gould. I began my private practice in 2008. I am a licensed counselor dedicated to providing the highest level of compassionate care.
Choosing the right counselor is important to your success in therapy. The research continues to show that the best counselors are the ones who take the time to hone their skills and that this must be done in addition to putting their skills into practice in therapy sessions. This skill development requires research, intentional practice, and consultation. It is important to find a counselor who is truly dedicated to your success.
Looking online. How do you distinguish one counselor from another? Is it important to do so?There are a lot of therapy methods and interventions available, and a good counselor will carefully consider when and how to utilize these treatments in their work with you. The quality of the relationship you establish with your counselor is the main ingredient to your success.
There are many reasons working with a counselor is important. It takes a great deal of time, experience, and practice to develop the specific skills necessary to work through difficult issues. If you have tried to figure things out on your own, and still feel stuck, an experienced and compassionate professional can help.
I look forward to hearing about your concerns, the challenges you may be facing, and helping to see you through. I am adept at working through immediate concerns in brief therapy and also am able to work through multiple complex issues in long-term therapy lasting many years. It is important to work with a counselor who has the ability and skill to work in long-term therapy. Most people starting counseling have deeper, long-standing and difficult issues which made them seek out counseling in the first place. Other people come to therapy in crisis, whether it is grieving the loss of a loved one, a relationship crisis, or trauma. Short-term counseling can certainly help to get back on track. Often deeper issues come to the surface and you may want to continue to work in therapy. Give yourself the gift of counseling.
