Hi! My name is Eugene. My goal is to work with clients in an empathic and non-judgmental manner to help them overcome whatever struggles they may be going through, create any changes they may want to make, and improve their overall quality of life.
Even though I have training in Mental Health Counseling, I like to work with clients in a more genuine and casual way instead of being clinical and overly analytical. ln my view, the majority of people out there are already fundamentally well and don't need to be "fixed". I believe that people can have many different types of lives and still be mentally healthy. In addition, I am alternative friendly, including LGBTQ, poly, kink, asexual, open relationship, and sex workers, and this is of course not a full list.
I realize that challenges (both short term and long term), such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and others can come up in life and that people may want to work with someone to help them overcome these challenges, and there is absolutely no shame in this (quite the opposite). In addition, sometimes a person is doing pretty well overall but wants to improve on a certain aspect or aspects of their life, and this is also wonderful.
In addition, I like to take a more holistic approach and make sure that other important areas of life are not neglected such as diet, sleep, and exercise, because I believe that general wellness can be a very important contributor to mental health.
In terms of the process, I offer a free 30 minute consultation to see that we are both comfortable working with one another and that we are a good fit. After the consultation, each session is $100 per 50 minute session. I also offer a sliding scale if this amount is difficult for someone. The sessions I offer are online video sessions (preferred) or phone sessions . I may also be able to do in person sessions, depending on where you live.
