Everyone can benefit from therapy. The client is the expert on their feelings and experiences, and, with the assistance of a therapist, the client can understand and make sense of those feelings and experiences. Therapists have the tools and ability to teach skills that the client needs to control/change/redirect/understand their feelings and actions so that they can get the most out of life and truly enjoy day to day living. I am your agent of change, your second set of eyes to look at life with you and help you deal with everything in it more effectively.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Much of the progress in therapy is achieved because of the therapeutic relationship between client and counselor. If you have had a negative therapy experience, you may not have found the "best fit" with a counselor. Try another therapist to find a better fit and don't stop until you do. You WILL find the counselor who hears and understands you so that you will have a positive therapy experience AND achieve the change in your life that you are seeking.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Going to therapy does NOT mean you are "crazy." Sometimes we lose perspective on things because we are so close to them or friends and family are telling you what they think you want to hear instead of what you need to hear. I have that unbiased perspective and can assist you in seeing things from that viewpoint. In addition, everyone has strengths and skills but they may not know that they have them or how to use them to make their life more fulfilling. Therapy can assist you in identifying these strengths and skills and help you learn how to use them. Every person can benefit from having another person hear their life story and support them in moving forward in life, even if it is to just say, "hey, that happens to a lot of people; you're not alone in the world with this."
