My Role as a Therapist

I often explain to clients that it's my job to push pause and allow space to re-examine a key phrase that has great insight or perhaps an answer finally verbalized. I'm there to help play detective, problem solve, brainstorm, support, encourage, challenge, and witness.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Personality fit and if a particular approach offered is one that the client is able and willing to commit to. I offer a complimentary 30 minute intro session for potential clients to see everything from the street parking and elevators to the sofa and me. This is a chance to ask questions about my background and experiences, the methods I use in and behind the scenes, and see if it's a good overall fit for what they may be looking for. I can suggest others that I may know would work well, too.
