EFFECTIVE COUNSELING FOR ADULTS IN SOLDOTNA, AK
Therapy is a unique and individual process. It is not a one size fits all proposition, and as such, you need a provider with a diverse set of skills to support you in achieving your identified goals and objectives. At KPMH, our counselors strive to support you in creating lifelong changes that allow for healthy and sustainable relationships, including relationships with others, but also the relationship one has to their own self.
KPMH counselors utilize integrative therapeutic approaches to tailor supports for the individual and unique needs of each client. You can expect a wholistic perspective that takes into account the many variables that contribute to overall health and well being. In addition to addressing symptoms, your provider will work along side you to assess other possible contributing factors; such as sleep, diet, supplementation, exercise, mindfulness, and connection with others, to name a few.
Our counselors at KPMH work in conjunction with other community based providers to ensure that you are on the most efficient and effective path towards health and wellness. We may make referrals to these providers to ensure we are capturing all of the relevant factors that may be contributing to your distress. KPMH counselors recognize the interplay between mental and physical health, and utilize this knowledge in addressing your symptoms in a comprehensive manner.

Should I See a Therapist?
While leaning on the support of friends and family is essential, it is not always sufficient. Sometimes it can be beneficial to engage in the therapeutic process, and access the support of an unbiased person who’s routing for Team YOU. Therapy can be an incredibly supportive space that allows one to sift through and evaluate where they are, where they want to go and most importantly, how to get there.
Whether early childhood experiences of trauma, fragmented relationships, or symptoms of anxiety or depression bring you into counseling, our KPMH providers are here to offer unconditional positive regard and support. This process can be profoundly transformational as you work to uncover the root of the challenges you face, while teaching you skills and strategies for long term change and overall success.
Some of the common causes of distress that bring adults into counseling include:
What you can expect from COUNSELING
Once you reach out, one of our KPMH Soldotna therapist will be in touch to talk about your particular circumstances, and what brings you into counseling at this time. Should you wish to move forward, an appointment will be set up to meet and talk in more detail, ensuring that the therapeutic relationship is a “good fit” for all involved. Our counselors at KPMH believe that the therapeutic relationship is the vehicle for growth and change. Without that vital connection, little progress will be made in this process. Providing all parties are motivated to move forward, initial sessions will be spent building rapport and gathering information about your wants, needs and goals for therapy. Your counselor will work with you to identify objectives, explore strategies and utilize resources. The pace and speed of this process is up to you, as the therapeutic time and space is ultimately about you.
Our therapists at KMPH will use complimentary and integrative approaches, offering a combination of traditional Western techniques as well as Eastern interventions. Should you be open to these interventions, possible areas of exploration might included guided imagery, meditation and mindfulness. Additionally, KPMH providers are trained in EMDR, and use brain based science to offer education and support in your journey towards change.
