Message to clients

I have heard a lot of horror stories from my clients about their experiences with therapists, and it is disheartening, but please do not give up hope! If you are here right now reading this, that means you are willing to try again, and who knows, maybe I am the therapeutic match you have been waiting for, but if not, I will make sure to assist you in your search for someone who better meets your needs. Either way, I am rooting for you and I am inspired by your commitment to your mental health and wellness. Looking forward to our connection :) - Bri
