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.
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.

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. Contact me to request a free 15 minute consultation.
