Message to clients

Hello everyone, Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. You’ve been thinking about finding someone to talk to for a while, you've been ambivalent about knowing if this is right for you. Thank you for allowing yourself to be vulnerable and giving therapy a try. You’ll be glad you did. In therapy there are risk and benefits. The risk are unresolved trauma and feeling will come up. The benefit is that you will learn ways to manage those feelings and the things that have left you feeling stuck. You are not alone. My goal is to help you discover your true authentic self and not let challenges hold you back. In our work together we will look for the root of the problem, look for solutions, and find ways to help you cope and decrease your symptoms. I want you to feel comfortable to share with me the challenges and difficulties you been experiencing. The session is for you and your healing. Always make sure that a therapist is the right fit for you so that you will be open to sharing. I am compassionate, I bring my authentic self to the session, and I want to teach you how to love you for who you are inside and out no matter the difficulties or challenges you may face, and help you to work on your goals. I look forward to connecting with you. Happy Healing and welcome to your new beginning.
