Message to clients

I know that entering psychotherapy and speaking your inner most thoughts to someone can be difficult and appreciate the courage and strength it takes to commit to a process that can be painful as well as immensely rewarding. The loneliness of struggling with depression and chronic anxiety while still living a successful life can be uniquely hard to resolve. You are the person I work well with. I look forward to hearing from you.
