The decision to seek professional mental health care is often challenging. In fact, you may be doubtful if therapy will be of any help at all. After working as a therapist and helping a wide variety of people for over 10 years, I have come to appreciate that the biggest contributing factor for successful treatment is the quality of the therapeutic relationship. The therapeutic relationship is the secure, supportive, professional relationship that exists between the therapist and the person in treatment. Therefore, it is crucial for people seeking care to find a therapist who is a comfortable and appropriate match for their needs. Please contact me to find out if I am a good match for you.
