become your best self and THRIVE
Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength.
In any given moment we have two options: To step forward into growth or to step back into safety.
- Abraham Maslow
Often the decision to seek mental health counseling is not an easy one. Many times it comes as a result of or in the midst of difficult life circumstances and the emotional pain related to those circumstances.
Research shows the relationship between client and therapist is one of the most critical components of effective counseling. When a client does not feel comfortable and connected to their counselor, the therapy inevitably fails. Clients will know by the end of the initial session if the therapist is a good fit.
