Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing is a goal-oriented, client-centered counseling style used by Hope Haven to help clients envision a better future and become motivated to achieve it.


Clients approach counseling at different levels of readiness to change their behavior. Therapists using Motivational Interviewing attempt to increase the client's awareness of the potential problems, consequences, and risks faced as a result of the behavior in question and influence clients to consider making changes.
