"Ideally when a person enters therapy they are ready for change. To me this means that a person is willing to walk along with their therapist rather than be lead by their therapist. It is so important for us to take charge where we can, even if it's only when we have the support and guidance of a clinically supportive relationship, like that with a therapist. I ask that my client's be willing to walk with me on the road to change. "
