The Therapeutic Process

Whether you are new to therapy or a seasoned client, the therapeutic journey is unique each and every time with every client and therapist. My belief is that the therapeutic alliance is the most important component to the sacred work we do together. In my experience as a therapist, there is usually a honeymoon period of getting to know each other which is fun and draws us into each other. This is often followed by a more uncomfortable stage where we are unpacking things that have been stashed under the rug for a bit of time and it can feel worse before it gets better. I use the analogy of putting several necklaces in a jewelry bag for a trip where they get tangled in travel only to need to be laid out on the hotel dresser without any tension or pressure in order to slowly find where the knots are and carefully and gently pull them all apart so each necklace can lay beautifully by itself. I enjoy doing this delicate work with my clients and piecing the puzzle together in joint effort to obtain the highest quality of life for all parties involved. I find that the therapeutic relationship needs to feel like it clicks similar to any relationship. Please accept my invitation for a 15 min free phone consult to ensure we are a good fit for each other. If you are seeking couples therapy please include your partner in your email to me and plan to do the phone consult with all parties involved.
