What is Multicultural Counseling?

March 19, 2013

The word “multicultural” is not only about your race, ethnicity, or cultural heritage, but also includes your age, family background, gender, religion/spirituality, socioeconomic background, life experiences, personal style, and so on.

 

When you are looking for a counselor, you may be seeking a counselor who is similar in background to you. In other words, you are seeking a counselor who can understand you. Multicultural counseling meets those needs. Multicultural counseling is sensitive to your multicultural dimensions. So, you don’t need to struggle explaining these to the counselor.

Lifescape Counseling practices multicultural counseling, and you will be comfortable entering counseling with Lifescape Counseling. We believes that we accumulate a sense of self from thousands of small elements/interactions, genetics, and environment. After all, who we are is more than age, race/ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomic background. We are product of our family background, gender, lifespan, religion/spirituality, sexual identity, and other factors. We highly respects individual uniqueness, and we treat every client with respect, compassion, and care.

Nurture Your Lifescape

March 12, 2013

Today, I would like to talk about “lifescape”, which is the name of my practice. You may wonder what the idea is behind the name. As you may have noticed, the word “Lifescape” is not in the dictionary. It is modified the word “landscape”. Drop “land” and add “life”.Vaila! “life-scape”

I found that life is like a landscape. You know, when you plan to create a landscape, you start to first think about what kind of landscape you want, what kinds of plants you want to...
