I am accepting short term (6 months) therapy clients prior to an extended leave in January 2025. I believe that even if you are experiencing something difficult, you have knowledge, experience and skills we can draw on in our work together. I will listen closely to what is troubling you, as well as what is most important to you. I hope that my questions and ways of being with you make space for the precious elements of your life to emerge and flourish. If you have experienced trauma, abuse, racism, sexism, ablism or other forms of invalidation, reaching out may feel scary. My hope is that you feel safe within the context of therapy.
I am most influenced by practices of narrative therapy which assumes that "people are not problems, problems are problems." I will work with you to make meaning of the difficulty you're facing, to expose unhelpful narratives, and amplify helpful ones. In my experience, this process can open up new perspectives, even with difficulties that have persisted.
If you would like to ask questions, or to discuss the reasons you're seeking support, I invite you to email me to schedule a free 15-20 minute phone conversation. Please include in your e-mail what insurance you have if you plan to use insurance.
Call or Amanda Sidman now for a free 15 minute consultation - (413) 207-9872
