Message to clients

It can be immensely difficult navigating the journey of getting therapy. It takes a lot of courage and commitment to your personal growth to take that step, and I'm so happy that you've chosen to do this special thing for yourself. Therapy can bring up difficult feelings at times, but all feelings are essential parts of our human experience, and growth often comes with some discomfort. I'm here to sit with you in the dark when things are hard, and to celebrate with you when there is relief. Know that in the therapy room, you will be guiding the sessions. Although I may ask questions and provide prompts, we will not discuss anything that you're not ready to discuss, and we will focus on working on goals that are set by you.
