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

Clients have described me as down to Earth. I want you to feel comfortable talking and sharing your feelings and thoughts. For this reason, I do not adopt a clinical presentation. I am interactive and believe in helping clients learn tools so they help themselves. Ask me questions. Be an active participant in your therapy. I welcome it.
