Collaboration is necessary for clients to receive the best possible treatment. There has to be a team effort as it is one of the key components in the therapeutic relationship. Both the client and the therapist need to work toward the same goal to achieve success.
I am extremely open-minded and I connect well with my clients. It is important to know that I do not judge anyone regardless of what their history entails. We are all unique individuals and everyone has the right to be treated with respect in a non-bias way. In addition, I am patient. People need to go through the therapeutic process at their own pace so they may heal.
I believe taking the first step in seeking therapy is difficult for most. When someone finally commits, then the financial aspect is a huge barrier. People are currently having a difficult time with finances. Therefore, I like to keep my rates affordable so I may assist as many people as possible.
