Many people see therapy as a scary, daunting process and often start with a therapist only to quit after a short time because they don't like their therapist or think their therapist doesn't "get them". I don't believe that therapy has to be scary, daunting, or painful. My view of therapy is similar to the process of shoe shopping. Let me explain.
My Background and Approach
When we go out to buy shoes, we don't just grab the first pair off the shelf and rush to the checkout. First, we determine what purpose the shoes are going to fulfill. For example, are we going to be exercising, doing heavy work or attending a wedding? Next, we need to try the shoes on to see how they feel on our feet. Finally, we walk around in them.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Finding the right therapist uses the same process. We must first determine the reason for seeing the therapist, then we need to decide if that person is the right fit for us. I believe life is too short to hold grudges, let past traumas control our lives, or be anxious or angry all the time. I'd love to talk to you to see if I am the best "fit" for you.
