I’m feeling extremely Blessed today because I have officially incorporated Chris Guzniczak Counseling, LLC. It’s been a long journey and I can’t express how much it means to be in a position to help people heal mentally and emotionally.
I chose the open Delta symbol with an arrow as my logo. The open Delta symbol represents being open to change and the arrow symbolizes progress (or moving forward). I can’t imagine a more fitting representation for the counseling process.
Counseling works because it allows for a safe environment for a client to be vulnerable, process (experiences, traumas, emotions, beliefs, relationships), and change the way he or she thinks (about self, others, the world). Therefore, a client’s success literally depends on his or her willingness to be vulnerable (open up), and change (move forward).
There are two important truths about emotions that I have learned along this journey. First, self-acceptance is at the core of emotional health. While this should be a given because we are all perfectly unique and made in His image, accepting ourselves (with all our faults) can be a long process. Second, emotional healing requires the willingness to be vulnerable.
Early in this journey, I came across a book called “The Feeling Good Method” by Dr David Burns. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in emotional health. I have gotten certified as a TEAM CBT Therapist and have utilized the Dr. Burns methodology with every client. I’ve also gotten Level 1 Certified in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy and I am in the process of getting certified as a CFRC (Certified First Responder Counselor). Being able to take this journey with the amazing team at Flower Mound Counseling has been a Blessing in itself!
Thank you for supporting me along this journey. I’ll continue learning to accept my imperfections, failing often (I’m sure), and growing every day. With God’s grace and the support of so many people, I’ll grow alongside those I am humbled to call clients.
