Keith Coleman, LMHC

Philosophy of Care

*Keith is licensed in the state of Florida and Pennsylvania*

In today's society reaching out to a therapist is a great step towards future success. I have worked intensely with anxiety/depression, irregular mood, difficulty sleeping, addictions, relational problems and grief/loss among other issues for the duration of my career. So often we isolate our true selves and potential for the benefit of those around us by hiding behind the proverbial mask, or wearing the superhero cape. This leads to an internal struggle and often to issues in our personal lives along with those who are closest to us.

We all need someone to listen, challenge, and provide encouragement for us to not only improve our quality of life, but stay on the right path. Taking off those masks, and letting down our walls can be painful, yet in turn are the first steps to healing.

I provide a peaceful, non-judgmental demeanor helping to encourage motivation, healthy change, and most importantly a better overall quality of life. I believe in a client-centered approach to therapy, helping to alleviate the fears, and providing the tools needed to healthily facilitate the change you may be looking for.

Sean Kweskin, LMHC

Philosophy of Care

My ‘Philosophy of Care’ is consistent with the mission, vision and values of best mental health practices and reflects the belief of achieving excellence in the delivery of client care.

I believe I must be there for our clients and their families. I honor this belief with a commitment to service excellence.

I remember that each client is an individual, a member of a family and a member of a larger community. Each client requires a varied amount of physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual support.

I believe that each client has basic needs, rights, privileges and preferences, which must be respected regardless of race, color, age, sex, creed, national origin, economic status or physical disability.

It is my belief that every client has the right to know the truth about his/her condition and that it is my duty to prepare clients for these truths and for their participation in decisions regarding their care.

To preserve each individual's dignity and to gain his or her trust, I know I must introduce myself and explain my role, use the individual's preferred name, explain my interventions to manage expectations and review the plan of mental health care with him or her regularly.
