My words to you
There is always a time in anyone’s life where one can benefit from the help of a counselor. If you are in that moment either because you are going through a life event, a crisis in some of your relationships, or that you have carried an emotional and psychological burden for a long time; you should not delay further dealing with that situation. Your mental health, physical health, and general well-being are very well interconnected. Taking the step of going to face-to-face or virtual counseling can be essential to your quality of life. Choosing the right therapist for you is the key. You’ll find plenty of options on the internet, as well as other resource listings. If you have a need in any of the areas in which I am an expert, I would like to help you feel confident in your choice. If you still have not decided to make your first appointment, please contact me and we can schedule 30 minutes of free telephone consultation so that you can ask me questions to help and clarify if you would feel comfortable with me to take the first step in the psychotherapy journey.
