Are You Ready to Create Positive Lasting Change?

“Change is not merely necessary to life – it is life.”
– Alvin Toffler

Few things in life, if any, are as constant as change!

Whether or not we are ready for it, change comes to us in many forms and in many ways – in our personal and professional relationships, in where we live, in our career paths, in our life goals and ambitions, and in how we perceive ourselves and the world around us.

However, despite the continuity of change, coping with it can be a difficult and troubling experience.

Change often causes us to step outside of what’s familiar and comfortable – bringing up new questions, unsettling emotions, and uncertainty about life and our place in it.

In order to survive, we must learn to accept and navigate change. But survival is just the beginning…

To achieve true success, we must go beyond becoming comfortable with change. We must learn to create the changes we want and need!

It can take a lot of work. But despite the difficulties, you’ll find few things in life more profoundly rewarding than being able to create positive lasting change.

Whether you’re trying to cope with current life changes or actively working to create the life you desire, there may be nothing so important as having an objective and highly-skilled partner to help you along the path to a better life. Helping people take control of their lives and create positive, lasting change is exactly what I do. And I love doing it!

I’ve learned to create the life I’ve always wanted, and I know no greater joy than helping others do the same. If I can do it, so can you. Please keep reading for more information or contact me today, 510-486-1188 or karenrosemft@rose-counseling.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

How My Work Can Work For You

The first step necessary for coping with – and creating – change is to identify where you are now as well as the life you’d like to create. And, through a combination of thoughtful questioning and out-of-the-box thinking, I’ve helped countless clients do just that.

Once we’ve established a clear set of goals for our work together, you will be ready to learn the strategies, tools, and skills necessary to create a life of meaning and self-fulfillment.

Then, using a variety of techniques such as solution-focused, short-term counseling, in-depth psychotherapy, psychospirituality, dreamwork, and other methodologies, I can help you overcome anxiety and depression, conquer recurring obstacles, discover meaning, and create a life you’re proud to call a true success!

(For more information regarding the various services I offer and how they can help you create positive, lasting change, please use the following links.)

  • Solution-Focused Counseling – This relatively brief method of counseling can help relieve current symptoms you may be experiencing (such as anxiety or depression), facilitate better communication with others, reduce stress, and help you feel better.
     
  • Long-Term Psychotherapy – My use of longer-term psychotherapy includes Jungian depth work, dream work, and psychospirituality. This type of therapy can help you explore who you are, discover meaning and purpose in life, and achieve a greater level of self-understanding.
     
  • Career Counseling – The career counseling services I provide can help identify areas in your life (career, relationships, spirituality, etc.) where you feel called to be more aligned with your purpose. With that knowledge in hand, I can help you acknowledge and overcome any barriers preventing you from achieving your dreams.

When You’re Ready to Re-create Your Life, I Am Available to Help You Create that Change

As I mentioned, change isn’t easy. But it is possible!

People don’t always feel better when they leave a session with me. But if we work together, you will leave our sessions feeling more aware of yourself. And you’ll be more aware of what matters to you, and the strengths and resources you have available to create the life you want to live.

I often tell clients, “If I ask you questions for which you have the answers, fire me!”

You shouldn’t hire me to help you discover what you already know, or just to feel better about where you are. That’s not the work I do.

But if you feel stuck, worried, anxious, or depressed; if your life no longer seems meaningful; if things don’t seem to flow as smoothly as they once did; or if you’re having difficulty changing any area of your life, you needn’t be alone.

I will accompany you as we work through present difficulties, help you determine a personal life path of meaning, happiness, and fulfillment, and assist you in creating the changes necessary so you may walk that path towards a richer, fuller, more satisfying life.

“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
– Chinese proverb
