Hello, my name is Kathryn Alabi, the CEO of A New Beginning Counseling. I understand that embracing change and a new approach to life or life perspectives can be challenging. My role at New Beginning is to encourage self-kindness, self-actualization, as well as compassion in your process. I have a Client Centered Holistic, Cognitive and Solution-Focus Collaborative approach to achieve them. I often defer to the eclectic theories where I draw from other theoretic backgrounds in order to provide my clients with the kind of support they need at time of service. My therapeutic approach is of the principle that the Client is the expert and my role is to act as guiding light to what they identify as their therapeutic journey. As a therapist, I do not act as a self-appointed expert on the client's life, who effortlessly dispenses advice to the client on what they should be thinking, feeling, and doing. I do not readily provide answers/solutions to client's questions/problems regarding themselves, but rather provide support in whatever way will help the client achieve their behavioral objective. MY AREAS OF SPECIALTY IS COMPLEX-PTSD SURROUNDING THE AREA OF NARCISSISTIC /PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSE; EMOTIONAL NEGLECT AND ABANDONMENT; IDENTITY CRISIS in connection to RELATIONSHIPS. I also SPECIALIZE Inner Child Recovery Process for Sexual/Pornography Addictions. BECAUSE OF THE IMPACT OF THE OVERALL INDIVIDUAL, I also Facilitate Trauma Recovery Group for Females and Males separately.
