Message to clients

Hello,

Thank you for considering my practice. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about it. I typically am available to correspond or speak about any concerns you have prior to starting a consultation.

In working with clients, I do my best to be very respectful of people. I understand coming into treatment is often very difficult and is often occurring at a very difficult time. I try to meet people where they are at, and my goal is to help you get the most of your life and to collaborate on alleviating those problems that bring you to treatment.

Cheers,

Matthew Lahaie
