What is Counseling?

Effective counseling is a safe and respectful process where you and I work together to help you achieve your personal goals. The counseling process can take many forms depending on your specific needs. Though guided conversation you will work toward a deeper understanding of yourself and develop innovative ways of dealing with life's challengers. I will do my best to be fully present to you and to make sure you feel heard and valued.

About Me

Hello,
my name is Erling Antonsson and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) working in Stuttgart, Germany. After finishing college in my home country of Iceland, I moved to Texas to pursue graduate studies in Psychology. That exciting change also turned out to be incredibly challenging for me and utilizing therapy myself during that time, I know how deeply transforming effective counseling can be.

Experience

As a professional counselor I have worked with a variety of cultures and populations. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • U.S. military members and their families as a Military and Family Life Counselor (MFLC). This included extensive work with children and teens.
  • International students adjusting to US college life
  • Families of teens with externalizing problems such as drug use, truancy, aggression and substance abuse
  • Teen in inpatient psychiatric setting
  • Families of infants/toddlers with various developmental and social/emotional challenges

Is Counseling right for me?

A free 15 minute consultation can help if you are new to counseling or if you are not sure if counseling is right for you. The consultation is also an opportunity for you to share some of your concerns, to explore how counseling can benefit you personally and to see if we match well. This is important because the best predictor of positive outcomes in counseling is the quality of the relationship between counselor and client.
