FLYING SOLO

Counseling Services at Flying Solo


Counseling at Flying Solo is seen as a short-term endeavor; "lifetime" counseling is not a goal, though clients of all ages may complete a number of sessions, and then come back later when and as other issues arise. At Flying Solo, there is no "agenda" clients must follow; in fact, each client is encouraged to bring the issues, challenges, problems most important to each session. In each visit, we will explore the origin of concerns as well as what has been tried for resolutions so far, and come up with a plan for releasing pain and letting go of "emotional baggage." Cheryl Klein follows the lead of her clients, in determining what emotional, psychological or spiritual work will be the focus, offering a listening ear, compassion and guidance.

For adult individuals, issues may be anxiety, abuse (in the past or in the present), bullying behavior (either perpetrator or victim), relationship difficulties, parenting or dealing with one's own parents, work-related conflicts, loss (of people, places or possessions), phobias or fears, depression, betrayal, divorce, self-esteem, trauma and others. Use of medication (if any) is solely the decision of each individual, in consult with each client's physician.

In the case where children are presenting unwanted or problematic behaviors, guidance, support and well-proven coping strategies are available to biological parents as well as non-biological parent partners. (Children are not accepted as clients). In this way, children are spared the belief that they may be "damaged" or "broken" (which is how children often feel when they are told they need to see a counselor) while the adults in their lives are given the opportunity to learn strategies for helping troubled children, restoring their leadership and authority, and healing the entire family system.

Counseling services are provided in the Windham office. For individuals seeking counseling by phone, email, or online, an initial face-to-face session is required as well as proof of residence in Maine. Some insurance is now allowing some of their members to have access to "telehealth" services, as well. For office hours and fees, please see the FEES & OFFICE HOURS page.
