If you're looking for someone who has it all together, I'm not it.
If you're looking for someone who has it all figured out, I'm not it.
If you're looking for someone who has all the answers, I'm not it.
If you're looking for someone who's been there, I'm it.
If you're looking for someone who gets it, I'm it.
If you're looking for someone who hears you, I'm it.
I'm your partner on the journey and here's my promise to you:
I will walk beside you.
I will listen unconditionally.
I will not solve your problems but I will give you the tools to do so.
I am broken just like you are.
I have scars, just like you have.
I have my ups and downs, just like you have.
I am as imperfect as my life and those imperfections have become my strength.
I love what I do and many say I’m good at it.
I’m passionate about helping others reach their goals and have better lives.
My name is Chou Gabikiny. I’m a counselor, coach, and consultant. I specialize in Christian counseling, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and person-centered practices for supporting people with disabilities. I believe that counseling is not just for mental illnesses. You don’t need to have a diagnosis to see a counselor. When life becomes overwhelming, stressful, or plain boring, talking to counselor can help. I do nOt focus on diagnoses. When I meet with people, we look at what are their current challenges and together we work on breaking down those barriers so they can achieve wellness.
I also provide coaching. I can help you get from point A to point B. I help you figure out what you want out of life and how to make it. It’s your life, YOU decide where you want to take it. I will support you and give you the guidance and accountability you need to successful in your endeavors.
As a consultant, I help people with disabilities have better lives. I advocate, train, and support. I give professional and natural caregivers the tools to effectively support others. I believe in a world where everyone has the ability to contribute to society, a world where everyone’s choices and interests are supported, a world where everyone, and I mean everyone, can participate in their community.
I am here for YOU! Give me a call or drop me a line (see contact info below).
I promise to respond promptly.
