All About Therapy

I believe one the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Many people have not been in therapy and do not know what to expect. I can reassure you therapy is not painful but can be a rewarding experience. Often people see therapy as a one-sided conversation with little interaction and not being able to experience getting to know each other as real people. Let me tell you, I can promise you I'm as real as it gets. Calling a therapist can be intimidating but I hope you can take a deep breath to call and see how I can help.
