Confidentiality, trust, and therapeutic compatibility are essential for the successful resolution of a person's problems in counseling and psychotherapy. They form the foundation for an honest dialogue between client and therapist that enhances a person's ability to deal with what is true in their life. As a therapist, my job is to help clients identify and resolve those truths and move on, feeling better about themselves and more confident in their ability to handle the difficult problems and challenges that life presents.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” ― Brene Brown. I aim to provide a safe and supportive space for others to explore and share their stories, so that they may begin to heal and restore their sense of self and belonging.

We all have parts of our lives that feel troublesome. Usually, we work on improving these parts by ourself or with family and friends. Sometimes these issues become so disruptive that we raid the self-help section of the bookstore or start Googling symptoms. However, if your problems start to feel insurmountable, overwhelming, and exhausting or if you just can’t see a way out, the support of a counselor can sometimes be the catalyst for change that you need.

My style as a therapist can best be described as eclectic, as I draw from a variety of techniques and theoretical orientations. That being said I tend to be highly client centered, which means I assume clients are the authorities about their own systems. In therapy, it's my job to describe what the science of psychology has to offer given the presenting problem and my professional experience in the area. However, it's my clients who get to decide how this information is applicable to their lives. More about my therapeutic orientation can be found on my website: www.reynoldstherapy.com
