At Mind)))Sounds, LLC, we embrace the challenge of working with you as you are and where you are in order to get you to where you’re going. We value diversity in all people and understand that everyone brings something different to the table whether as an individual, in a group, or as part of family. When we don’t understand the inner workings of a culture, group, or individual we will seek to understand and be educated. We listen to our clients with a focus and intent that’s comparable to a music lover taking in their favorite record. Delicately tuning into the ups and downs nooks and crannies while like a music producer simultaneously listening for points of reflection, direction, and collaboration. This all done with a pure passion and enthusiasm that counters problems with resilience, patience, and resolve. We start the journey by building a strong rapport with the client that is secure, ethically sound, and growth oriented. In short, we simply value and appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the journey of another human being regardless of how major or minor our role is. Our goal is for you like a music conductor to stand on life’s stage with the confidence and skills to conduct the symphony of your own mind.
We know that therapy, like all of life, is both an art and science. We seek to merge and bond the two for you. We offer direct, in-direct, and collaborative counseling approaches. Each style has it’s own benefits but what is most important is finding a style that fits you. A directive approach will provide you the opportunity to be more in the role of a listener as the therapist directs and guides each session while an indirect approach will give you the floor as the therapist primarily listens. A collaborative approach is a combination of the direct and indirect style and allows for the therapist and client to work together in a more even exchange. To each is own and ultimately it’s what best suits you.
“The meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day, from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person’s life at a given moment. To put the question in general terms would be to the question posed to a chess champion: “Tell me, Master, what is the best move in the world?” There simply is no such thing as the best or even a good move apart from a particular situation in a game and the particular personality of one’s opponent. The same holds for human existence. One should not search for an abstract meaning of life. Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life to carry out a concrete assignment which demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it. As each situation in life represents a challenge to man and presents a problem for him to solve, the question of the meaning of life may actually be reversed. Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of life is, but rather he must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.”
