I should start by introducing myself and my purpose for this blog site. My name is Kasey and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, LPCC, NCC. I have been working in the field since 2009. Prior to becoming a counselor I worked as an elementary and middle school teacher. I found my calling as a counselor during my work in the field of education. I kept facing barriers and challenges in my role as an educator which left me so limited to what I could or could not do to help my students. Professional counseling seemed like the perfect solution!
Since then I have been working diligently in the field of mental/behavioral health to explore my talents, areas of interests and develop an expertise. I always say that often careers choose you, and in my case, that is correct. I have found that over the course of the past six years I have worked with such an array of clients, that I have been able to explore those areas of interest and choose where I wanted to focus much of my attention.
Recently my sister and I, who is also an Licensed Professional Counselor as well as a Master Addictions Counselor, have developed and devoted much of our time to our private practice. She has always preferred working with adults, and me with children and families so our partnership just made sense. I had a recent revelation that so many of my insurance client’s who are coming to see me really just need a thorough consultation including any necessary assessments, screenings, recommendations and referrals rather than a typical counseling series of sessions. This is when I developed the Consulting aspect of my practice.
I offer a brief-solution focused approach as an alternative to the traditional therapy process. I wholeheartedly believe in this for several reasons. One, there is no long term or indefinite commitment as there would be in the therapy process. This is a one session consultation which will provide immediate solutions for your parenting problem! There is very little time invested (on the Client’s part) and allows Client’s to leave with a solutions, a plan, and resources in hand to effectively tackle their parenting concern.
Please feel free to contact me for more information on Parenting Consultations. Details will follow in upcoming blogs! I look forward to interacting with you and sharing my experiences.
