What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

I think finances are a huge barrier for people seeking therapy. The average cost of therapy is $150 per session. Many people cannot afford that, especially now. My fees are definitely a lot more affordable.

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I have always been a patient person. I have also always been told I am a patient. I definitely show that patience in my role as a therapist, as I realize some people need more time to make positive changes.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

Collaboration is a key component of the therapeutic relationship. Therapy is a team effort. It takes both of us working towards the same goal, to achieve it.
