Ideally, I try to create a comfortable environment so that the client can feel a connection. I realize that one of the hardest things to do as a person, is to admit that you need to talk a problem through with someone outside of your circle of family and friends. When meeting with the client, I try to distinguish where they are and go above and beyond to make the therapeutic process a success.

Life can be difficult at times and things can feel overwhelming but by looking for support you have already taken the first step in your healing. It can also be intimidating to find a therapist who feels like the right fit to help you through your experiences. I believe that a strong therapist-client relationship is of utmost importance and my ideal client would be someone who is looking to take an active role in their therapy. Although you may be experiencing loss of hope, feelings of worthlessness, or loneliness, I am convinced that everyone has an opportunity for recovery.
