Anthony's Counseling Approaches

My aim is to work towards building a trusting relationship with those whom I serve, while emphasizing that we should take full responsibility for our own actions. I provide information and resources needed by clients to help guide their actions, as they see fit.  I work primarily on issues involving academic performance, career planning/open-minded and personal issues that are negatively impacting academic performance like test anxiety and other life stressors. This also includes interpersonal conflicts between students, staff and faculty. The goal is to identify options that may reduce or eliminate issues, thus allowing students to be successful. I operate on a premise which incorporates various theories including Career Development, Cognitive, and Humanist.

Trish’s Counseling Approaches

My work is guided by the belief that each person holds within themselves the resources needed to take responsibility for their growth and change. This is a dynamic process often requiring guidance and support, particularly in the complex environment of higher education. This process challenges each of us toward greater self-awareness and a clearer understanding of what we want in our lives, and the courage and commitment to keep taking the steps that will get us there. It requires the development of self-acceptance and compassion, in addition to determination and focus. My goal is to help students achieve personal and academic success, because it is the foundation upon which long-lasting change in the world takes place.
