I believe that therapy is a partnership between the client and the therapist. We all enter into therapy with different needs and goals. For some, therapy is a safe place for them to share their story and have someone listen without judging or blaming-- a place for them to give voice to their experiences so they can heal. For others, it is about problem-solving and creative exploration. For most, we seek a combination of the two. My focus in therapy is helping you create the best life for you, by addressing past and present concerns that may be impacting the peace and joy that you experience in your life.
I understand the challenges related to finding a therapist that is a good fit for you. Research indicates that the most important determinant of success in the therapeutic process is the relationship between the client and therapist. For this reason, I encourage you to be your own best advocate. Don't give up and keep seeking until you find someone you feel safe with, who will honor your story and empower you to create a joyful life. I welcome your questions and will be happy to meet with you for a free consultation so that we can address any concerns you might have related to the therapy process.
I would welcome the opportunity to work with you.
