Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing is a method of therapy used to tap into the personal reasons or internal motivations that a person has for making lasting changes in their life. By discovering these personal reasons for why a person is seeking a change, the likelihood of following through and achieving desired results is much higher.

This technique allows the client to find their own truth and learn to approach situations/behaviors from a place of empathy and understanding, rather than judgment and shame.

Change is an inside job. We all deserve to find our “why” and motivation for moving forward. 

At Claibourne Counseling, we offer caring treatment for individuals seeking validation and support!
