About this pro

There is no better compliment then for someone to say to a therapist "you are doing what you were meant to do". People come to therapy because something in their lives needs to be resolved or changes are needed in some life area. On a daily basis therapists get to engage people from all walks of life. As people explore their therapeutic goals, they gain trust in the process, and partner in with their therapist to pursue and meet these goals. If a therapist is being honest, they will often admit that this work is very challenging. But we know the real work is being done by our clients. The satisfaction for us is in knowing that nothing done is therapy is purposeless. It is in fact a privilege to be a therapist.

It can help provide insight, strength, solutions, and new coping strategies for all types of challenges in life. Our experience has shown us that when people are provided with a comfortable environment, they become willing to explore and express themselves more freely and honestly. Our hope is that we successfully guide people towards a greater self-awareness.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

How can therapy help me with what I am going through though?

There are many situations that lead people to pursue therapy. Likewise, there are many benefits from being involved in a therapy process with the help and guidance of a therapist. Here are some of the benefits of therapy.

 

  • A feeling of being understood, that you are not being judged for sharing about what you've been through

  • Self- esteem building and an increased level of confidence in coping healthily with stress and anxiety

  • Developing a deeper relationship with oneself that leads to improvements in relationships 

  • An increased ability to resolve conflicts, communicate effectively with others, and accept situations that can't be changed

  • Improvements with physical well being and a reduction in physical ailments/symptoms

  • Experiencing a sense of resolution, acceptance and/or closure with issues brought to therapy

How do I know if I need to see a therapist?

Deciding that the issues you face are more than you can handle alone is a a very difficult decision to make. Here are some signs that you could benefit from therapy

 

  • You feel an overwhelming, prolonged sense that things are not "right" and perhaps even at times helpless or hopeless 

  • Things do not seem to improve despite your efforts and/or the help of family and friends

  • You often feel overcome with feelings of anger, irritability, or sadness

  • You've suffered a trauma and cannot stop thinking about what happened

  • You are increasingly turning to substances to deal with life and you are becoming concerned

  • Your friends or family have told you they are worried about you or even upset with you

How do I know I am meeting with the right therapist for me? 

Go with your gut seems too inadequate a response to this question. Things matter differently for everyone but there are important factors that people in therapy often appear to agree upon. Here are some questions to ask yourself

 

  • Has your therapist explained to you about confidentiality. Do they seem trustworthy

  • Do they present themselves in a professional and appropriate manner, respectfully and courteously

  • Does your therapist demonstrate an interest in learning about what matters most to you

  • Does they communicate in a language that you can understand, that is relatable, that is uncomplicated 

  • Does feel like a partnership or do you feel on your own in session and in between visits

  • Does your therapist check in with you on how you think your therapy is going, their view on your progress
