As a counselor, I am concerned with helping an individual to become the most successful person possible. In order to accomplish this goal, I establish a trusting rapport so that the individual can feel comfort in revealing any problem that is present. Also I like to actively listen to the situation that is being presented and tune into what any other underlying issue may be. Communicating and offering feedback makes the client feel like the only client I have. Additionally, I respect diversity and individuality since everyone is unique and holds value just for being who he/she are.More
