Psychotherapy

THE MOST IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIP IS THE ONE YOU HAVE WITH YOURSELF.

Psychotherapy is not easily described in a single sentence. The success of the therapeutic process is highly dependent on the person delivering services as well as on the client and his/her/their needs. My therapeutic style is based on transparency, curiosity, and collaboration. Progress and transformation occur when we do not dodge the discomfort, but rather work together on fostering a sense of non-judgmental regard for the presenting problem. While I am dedicated to working with you on whatever you may bring to the table, therapy also requires a great deal of active engagement on your part.

As with most things in life, the more you put into an undertaking—in this case, therapy—the more you will get out of it. Creating time and space for one’s healing is a wise investment that takes honesty, courage, energy, and financial resources. As such, if we decide to work together, it is of the utmost importance that you communicate any problematic or uncomfortable feelings that may arise for you regarding our therapeutic relationship. It is widely observed in the mental health professions that the client-therapist relationship is the foundation from which positive change may occur in the client’s life. If at any point you are not satisfied with our therapeutic relationship or my style of therapy, it is important to address this so that we can either resolve our issues or so that I can make an appropriate referral. Although deep, lasting changes in a person often take time, you should not continue seeing a therapist with whom you do not feel a sense of connection and trust. While I strive to be genuine, empathetic, non-judgmental, and trustworthy in all of my relationships, the fact remains that I may not be the right therapist for everyone. Trust your gut.
