Counseling for People Like Us.
Have you ever worked with a therapist who doesn’t get it?
... who seemed to speak down to you or as though they were better than you
… as though they were the expert on you?
... looked completely different from you and had completely different life experiences?
... minimized or even ignored how culture and diversity impact everything?
While these are common thoughts, Cicely Holston Counseling is uncommon counseling.
... No one will presume to be an expert on YOUR life; the only expert is YOU.
... No one will tell you what you "should do" or give you a bunch of textbook jargon.
... There won't be worksheets or homework (unless you really want some).
... No one is ignoring diversity!
What there will be is actual counseling.
I created Cicely Holston Counseling because I have had similar experiences from the couch, classroom, boardroom, and even among my peers. CHC is a space for people to find counseling that differs from most other counseling available. My passion (and my responsibility) is to have a strong awareness of culture and diversity in my work. My experiences and education allow me to offer culturally diverse individuals a place to speak with someone who knows what time it is. I am a black female counselor who navigated a bumpy road to reach my destination. Our experiences are often vastly different from our counterparts, and it is okay to acknowledge and discuss them. In fact, I encourage these conversations!
