Some Words of Comfort
Finding a therapist is hard. You imagine you will have to spill all your secrets in the first session to a perfect stranger. You imagine your therapist might act like your mean third grade teacher or mother, and you aren’t sure you can deal with that just now—not with everything else that is going on.
I have been there— worried about the imaginary person who waits in the chair, who might want to insert their beliefs and opinions into your raw and fragile brain. I promise not to do this. I will always respect you and the feelings and thoughts that you bring into the room.
I am warm and accepting, and my clients tell me they feel safe with me. We don’t know each other yet and it takes time to develop trust. In order to facilitate that I invite you to call me for a chat, or a 15-20 minute pre-session phone consultation. We can discuss any fears you may have and I can answer your questions.
