What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love helping people increase their joyfulness. To walk with a client through difficulties and see the smiles and laughter return to their faces is is priceless and it motivates me to work hard for them.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Even though your problem is very serious, therapy becomes a burden if you don't add some lightness. Look for a therapist that leaves you feeling built up. Find someone who is warm and compassionate. A good therapist doesn't judge others, they accept them for who they are and where they are at, at that specific moment in time.
