Why Choose to Begin Therapy?
Choosing to begin therapy can be difficult for many people. If you are experiencing emotional, relational, or mental distress and you are feeling frustrated or losing hope - please talk to someone. There are trained professionals who can help.
It can also be difficult to find the right therapist. I encourage you to take your time and get to know a therapist before beginning therapy. Find someone you like, feel safe with, and feel hopeful about working with. This will go a long way in helping you get what you need. It is also important to talk about logistics, such as payment, timing/schedules, goals, and ground rules. You can do this in a free phone consultation before scheduling a session.
There are many kinds of psychotherapy and many different kinds of therapists out there. While some people find meaningful help from seeing a doctor in a large clinic or from taking medicine, I specialize in more a personalized approach. You are not a number to me and I want to spend the time to get to know you, your context, your history, and all the other things that are leading you to consider beginning therapy at this time.
