" I strongly believe in the process of therapy because I have seen it unfold before me. It is a sometimes slow, painful, process that takes time. When the pain is released, it becomes a relief. Yes it is scary to look inside and face the not so nice parts of us and our experiences that we have endured. However, just because we don't look does not mean it is not there. If we recognize we need help, it is a courageous move to make that first initial contact with a professional. I have a great capacity for empathy, and believe I am a compassionate, intuitive person these are key components to good therapy."
