Welcome to Ascent Counseling,

My name is Darlene Egelhoff, and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to my practice and share my treatment philosophy. Counseling can have a tremendous impact on a person’s life by speaking to the many challenges that life brings which often create feelings of being stuck with no way out. Our sessions will be a process of building rapport and trust to discuss specific problems that may have biological, psychological, social, or spiritual impact. Collaboratively with my clients we define goals and create a treatment plan to effectively meet those goals.

I believe a sense of empathy and compassion are critical components to the therapeutic process. I am a client-centered therapist who holds a central hypothesis that the growth potential of any client will tend to be released in a relationship in which the therapist communicates realness, caring, and a deeply sensitive, non-judgmental understanding. I am a body-centered Somatic therapist and utilize cognitive-behavioral techniques which consider the inner workings of how thoughts affect feelings and behaviors along with somatic, mindfulness-based therapeutic approaches that cultivate self-awareness, acceptance, compassion, tolerance, and reduce suffering. I offer strength-based counseling working collaboratively with clients to make meaning of their own losses, needs, and historical patterns.

It is my belief that good can come from all things and it is my hope that you will find meaning, purpose, joy and happiness from your journey regardless of how difficult your experiences have been. You are not your past, your decisions, or your problems. You are a wonderful, unique person with special gifts and contributions who has the ability to choose how you want to think, feel, act, and be.
