We are all born with talented minds. However, over 63% of individuals in this country are disengaged from their work creating discontent (Forbes, 2013). Using our Hope-Centered counseling model we guide individuals through their stress to bridge this disconnect.
We yearn to discover two basic things about ourselves:
(1) What each person requires is a subjective validation of “why” a career path has meaning and (2) an objective assessment of “how” their inborn abilities may support them in that journey. Together, the confluence of these allows for a constructive process to ensue, developing a sense of purpose that inspires the motivation to own intentional change.
As individuals, we all long for an understanding of “what” we are naturally good at, “how” we may deploy our gifts in a way that expresses our uniqueness, and impact the lives of others. Engaging in a process of self-reflection leads to self-clarity, enhances self-esteem and promotes self-efficacy, all of which elevates levels of hope. Importantly, clarity reveals “how” these may be manifest in a purpose-driven life. Formatively, this elevates a sense of hope, changes “what” we think (attitude), and directly impacts “how” we approach turning points in life (behavior).
Our mission is to work with individuals in the discovery of “what” makes them exceptional. This process empowers them to confidently express their individuality in the world. We want them to discover “who” they are, “why” their interests are a reflection of themselves, and “how” their inherent abilities will support them in the vocation they envision. It is about framing a new attitudinal approach to living that is abundant and fulfilling. Ultimately, what individuals hope for is an avocation that feels less like work and more like “what” they are called to do in this life.
