My Approach to Helping
There are far too many clichés written in therapy ads nowadays, so I will speak freely. I cannot offer you a magic pill that will cure your problems, nor do I know of any quick fix solutions. We often struggle to discern why we think, feel, and behave in certain ways simply due to an innate tendency to rush through difficult processes. In other words, we try to find answers before asking questions. As a clinician, I cannot promise that we will uncover all of these answers, but I can assure you that we will ask pertinent questions as we travel down a solution and goal-oriented pathway together.
More Info About My Practice
Therapy is not a race; there is no timer, and no set finish line. With that said, I will encourage you to set firm goals that we may reassess and reevaluate together. As a goal oriented therapist, I am dedicated to making sure we stay on track. I am not here to waste your time. Contrary to our current healthcare system, honesty and transparency are the backbones of my practice.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
Concerns about today's behavioral health system are completely valid. It's often overpriced, limited, and difficult to receive coverage for. The medical model, still utilized by hospital based clinicians across the country, is both archaic and short sighted. The private healthcare market is broken beyond repair yet still in effect. Therapy has transformed into a privilege for the wealthy rather than a universal right for those in need. I no longer work in the non profit sector so that I may choose my own evidence-based treatment model, control my own schedule, and most importantly, offer sliding scale prices based on individual client means.
