What’s a common misunderstanding people have about therapy?
“There are several. The main one is that you have to be “crazy” or have some big issue for therapy. That is not the case. Therapy is for everyone. Life can be hard and everyone needs support. Other misunderstandings include: Therapy will always feel great when in actuality, sometimes, we have to push you to grow and achieve your goals (just like you get sore after a workout). Also, that we will automatically send you to the hospital or that we will judge you but, honestly, we are just proud of you for showing up.”
How can clients get the most out of therapy?
“Be honest and advocate for yourself. We are only here to help, so be honest with us. Advocate for what you need in session – do you need to be pushed more or held accountable? Do you need more validation? Do you need more concrete skills? And even, do you need a different therapist? – Let us help find the right fit for you.”
What’s your favorite book [movie, play, sport, quote, hobbie, etc]?
“As an avid reader, I am not sure I can pick just one favorite book! I have played and loved volleyball since 11 years old. I, also, love oil painting and anything to do with water (waterfalls, pool, ocean, lakes). Other hobbies include refinishing old furniture and yoga.”
