AutonoME: Freedom from the world's control. Free to be ME.
The philosophy behind AutonoME Counseling Center is that you can find freedom in discovering your own autonomy (who you authentically desire to be). For many of us, we get lost trying to find who we desire to be with all the other influences such as family, friends, society, and even our own fears telling us who we should be and what is expected of us. The incongruence between what we want and what is expected of us causes anxiety, depression, and so forth. Therapy provides a comfortable place to process these incongruencies in order to find the autonomy we desire. This is something that is vitally important to establish in the formative adolescent years.
