Cameron's Counseling Approach
Cameron, using his person-centered, humanistic counseling approach, aims to facilitate a safe and nonjudgmental environment where children, adolescents, and adults can gain insight and self-acceptance to navigate various circumstances in their life. Cameron believes that the foundation for change in the counseling process stems from experiencing trust and empathic understanding in the therapeutic relationship. Through culturally responsive and strength-based methods, he will collaborate with each client to develop an environment where they feel supported in processing unique experiences and encouraged to honor their individuality. During the counseling process with children, Cameron values facilitating understanding of the child’s experience and strengthening the bond between parents and their children. The idea of processing life challenges can be overwhelming, but his work involves empowering each client to discover how utilizing their individual strengths can contribute to personal growth.
