“I can tell you because I know you won’t judge me”.
Of all the feedback I have received over the years, this statement from clients is the most often said and the one that gives me the most pride as a professional. Therapy, to me, is a conversation. Through that conversation, you will likely learn more about yourself, your relationships with others, and how you view the world. We will work together to identify your goals and develop a roadmap to get you to your destination. We all have a story to tell and each story is important and valuable because you are important and valuable, too. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to be open and vulnerable with another human being. I strive to develop a working relationship with my clients that will feel comfortable, supportive, and safe.
