Why therapy for you now?
Whether you have a particular goal in mind or an underlying feeling that something "isn't right", doing something about it takes courage. Congratulations for going this far.
You probably have questions for me. Feel free to call so we can talk about them.
My approach to therapy and training in clinical psychology is psychodynamic (understanding how your past and attachment to others affects your relationship with yourself and others today), positive psychology (what's right with you), and mindfulness (development of non-judgemental awareness, inner calm, and positive emotions).
I welcome problems that feel too big, too complicated, and too scary to face alone.
No one can guarantee that a particular type of therapy or a specific therapist is right for you. The only way to find out is to see for yourself. Since you're thinking about it, I hope you do, with me or someone else.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
Your relationship with your therapist is important!
Underlying all of the work is trust. So it's really important that you feel held, heard, and respected. You should be able to talk to your therapist about anything without fear of rejection or criticism: yourself, your relationships, your past, your present, sex, money, death, accomplishments, goals, wants, desires, fantasies, fears, feelings from your perspective, not what you've been taught should be, but what is and was.
The way I "do" therapy is called a client-centered (by, for, and about you), interactive (a two-way conversation), transparent (ask questions when you have them), and collaborative (we work together).
