If you decide to work with me, we will make sure to work together to ensure the therapeutic relationship between you and I is strong, for the betterment of your healing!
A first session with me looks like a conversation between two adults. We will get to know one other, so that you can get a feel for me, as a fit for your therapeutic needs.
