College can be so difficult.

Everything is changing so fast … your views about others, the world, and yourself. You don’t know who you are anymore or what you believe. You don’t know what you want your future to look like. The highs are higher and the lows are lower. It is hard to know where to turn for help, especially when it looks like everyone else has it together.

I understand what a difficult transition college can be. Decisions have been made for you and your path has been determined by others, until now. Now, all of a sudden, it is your turn to choose your path. Now you need to make important decisions at every turn. That can be scary. Everyone feels lost at times during college. But if you are struggling to find your way, Empower is here to help you.

Empower Counseling can help you find your way.

I have helped many college students go from…

  • Being overwhelmed to being calm, deliberate, and organized.
  • Being unclear about the future to having a plan for college and your future after college.
  • Being confused about who you are to knowing exactly who you are and what is important to you.
  • Poor time to learning how to prioritize and manage all responsibilities.
  • Feeling lost to having a strong sense of purpose and direction.
  • Wasting time to being intentional, setting, and reaching goals.
  • Lacking confidence and self-worth to being confident in who you are.

I understand how difficult it is to be on your own, trying to find your way. I will help you become clear about who you are, who you want to be, and what you want your life to look like. Then I help you with an action plan to get there!

Counseling for College Students

Empower Counseling is different from other counseling.

I use Acceptance Commitment Therapy to help you become clear about what is important to you, what has been standing in your way, and the actions it will take for you to be the person you want to be and to have the kind of life you want to have.

I begin with really listening to what you are going through and how this is affecting you. Then I help you uncover what is important to you – what you want your life to look like. This might take a little digging, but we will get there. Then once we know what is most important to you, we will examine your strengths, aptitudes, interests, likes, and desires. We will also look at the areas of your life you want to strengthen. As we go through this process, you will notice your self-confidence rising because you are becoming clear about who you are, focusing on all that you have to offer and all you can achieve, once you have a plan.

Once we are clear about what is important to you, what you like and want, and what you don’t, I will create an action plan … an action plan for you to be your best self in college and in life after college. If you want it, I will help with time management, productivity, goal setting, healthy habits … basically whatever is not working for you the way you want it to.

What is holding you back from beginning counseling with Empower to get on the path to your best, most enjoyable life?

Are you thinking, “I should be able to do this on my own?”

You can continue to struggle to find your way all by yourself or you can turn to someone for help who understands how difficult it can be and has found a better way. I have used my years of experience in school (college, graduate school, and law school), life, and work with other college students, to develop a plan to get you where you want to go.

Are you thinking, “I don’t have time for counseling?”

What you will learn in your 50 minutes a week in session – in office or by video – will save you so much time in the long run. How much time are you wasting being overwhelmed and without direction? Empower can help you find your path and guide you to the actions necessary to be organized, to prioritize, to set, and reach goals.
