My clients don't come to therapy to hear someone nod, parrot back, and agree with everything they say...that's not worth their time or money. They want real help. They want to know "what to do" and "how to fix it." They struggle with depression, severe anxiety, relationship problems, trauma, suicidal thoughts, parenting issues, and other painful situations, so they are looking for a true expert. One that they can actually talk to. I've been a therapist for about 15 years in the south (Nashville, Chattanooga, and Atlanta) and am excited to bring some of our brand of help to Boston.
