Being a woman who benefited from psychotherapy as a young adult to the experienced therapist I am today, I relate to the feelings that go along with starting the process of looking inward to heal and experience personal growth.
I remember feeling eager to start therapy and hopeful about what I'd gain from the process. I also felt hesitant because the thought of being emotionally vulnerable and talking about my struggles was a little bit intimidating at the time. I recall leaving my first session feeling relieved and supported. I'm grateful I could access therapy when I needed to, and it was in those sessions that I gained the empowerment to attend college.
Your desire for healing, personal growth, and positive change is achievable.
One of the essential factors of therapy is having a solid therapeutic relationship with the therapist. This means developing trust and building a connection with your therapist.
I offer potential clients a free phone consultation.
During your phone consultation, you'll have the opportunity to talk about what prompted you to seek therapy and what you hope to get help for. I'll discuss with you whether or not my clinical skills can meet your needs, and if so, I'll share my treatment approaches and answer your questions.
Finding a therapist who's a good fit is significant. During the consultation, you'll understand what being in therapy with me would be like. The free phone consultation does not obligate you to start treatment with me. Contact me to schedule a phone consultation.
Helping my clients heal emotionally while developing more meaning in their lives and helping them gain personal empowerment is truly an honor.
I work closely with my clients to help them establish goals for therapy, along with a personalized treatment plan. In addition to the various clinical approaches used, I make a point to draw upon my client's strengths and help them build confidence, increase their self-love, and gain a strong sense of personal empowerment.
