WHAT IS AN EMPATH?
"Empaths are highly sensitive, finely tuned instruments when it comes to emotions. They feel everything, sometimes to an extreme, and are less apt to intellectualize feelings. Intuition is the filter through which they experience the world. Empaths are naturally giving, spiritually attuned, and great listeners.
-Dr. Judith Orlof, board certified psychiatrist and acclaimed author

WHAT IS EMPATHIC COUNSELING?
While my foundation in counseling is based on more than a decade of clinical practice and supervision, as well as a formal college education in Psychology, I also have a vast array of knowledge and insight available to me through my intuition. This information can be an invaluable component of the therapeutic process. It works like this... during the session, I am feeling your emotions and getting intuitive insights about your emotional landscape. The emotions that I'm experiencing are reflecting yours. Most importantly, though, I'm receiving intuitive information regarding how you can move out of a challenging state or belief pattern.
As an empath, I see your circumstances from a broader perspective, bringing an additional layer of understanding to the therapeutic process. Connecting with you, in this way, opens me to creative solutions and insights that are not typically a part of traditional therapy. For instance, as you talk about possible options or courses of action, I may have feelings of peace, anxiety, or excitement, giving us information to discuss and consider. Often, as I talk about the feelings coming up for me, you will be able to recognize similar feelings within yourself. This process works as a form of validation and helps clients learn to better acknowledge and utilize this kind of information for themselves. I can't tell you exactly what path to take, only you have the right answers for yourself but together we can help you gain clarity and confidence, as you move forward.
When I apply my empathic skills, in a counseling session, I get a much clearer picture and a far deeper understanding of you and your circumstances, which makes the process exponentially more efficient. If this concept resonates with you, you likely have empathic qualities yourself. If so, an empathic counseling session could be exceptionally useful for you, as it could help you learn how to harness your own intuitive gifts and find creative solutions and clarity regarding your current challenges. .
