Alex Chapunoff, LMHC, TIRF, Counselor in South Pasadena
More than just an intellectual endeavor, counseling is a special experience. It is a place where clients can begin to enrich their own understanding and perspective. When that happens, the nature of their problems begins to change, appearing more as solutions in disguise. When a client then agrees on the ideas or exercises that are helpful, he or she tries them and sees how they work. This often reinforces the desire to improve. The process itself is an exploration and tends to be as interesting as it is rewarding.
My specialty is to closely listen to my clients and acknowledge where they want to be as people. The next step is to figure out what changes will bring about the desired goal or goals. Considering the client's views and feelings is key and my job is to translate these into opportunities.
I combine compassion with knowledge to foster a therapeutic experience that is supportive and of practical day-to-day benefit.
