Christian Baginski, Masters Level Intern, Inner Courage Counseling
Hello, my name is Christian Baginski (he/him). I am a 3rd year graduate student in Lewis University’s clinical mental health counseling program. I have done a variety of jobs before this including landscaping, teaching swim lessons, butchering, and working with behavioral health clients with mental illness. This unique array of work environments has taught me a variety of skills including patience, tenacity, and working in a team. They also have had a significant influence on how I see life.
I am always excited to have the opportunity to learn about new people. Each person’s life experience is so different, leading them to develop a unique perspective. I want to cooperate with my clients in order to learn about that perspective. Using this I can help guide my clients to potential paths forward that are right for them. Through this structure, counseling can be an illuminating process that reveals options that may not have been thought possible at the start.
I like to work with clients through a positivity-oriented approach using techniques of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. These techniques will act as a guide to keep moving through sessions but will also be adjustable based on my client’s needs. I understand that starting counseling can be incredibly daunting and it may create several concerns. You and your concerns are valid. I am here to help alleviate some reservations you might be having and give you the best environment I can for you to take your first steps in counseling.
