What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Welcome to therapy! I know you are wondering what to expect from your counseling sessions. It is important for you to explore your own feelings and thoughts and to try new approaches in order for change to occur. The success of our work together depends on the quality of the efforts on both our parts, and the realization that your are responsible for lifestyle choices/changes that may result from therapy. Progress for counseling may not be guaranteed. My goal is to provide a safe space for you to discuss any questions you may have regarding the treatment plan. You can expect me to always strive to provide quality care for you, as the client, and support you in reaching a resolution to the issues at hand.

I will also welcome your input into setting the goals of your therapy. You may bring others or family members to a therapy session if you feel it would be helpful or if it is my recommendation.
