“I believe the foundation of successful counseling experience is the relationship that the client builds with the therapist. Some people just don’t “click”, I know that, if that is the case with me and my client, my desire is that I can help that client find a clinician that is more of a “fit” for them in their counseling experience. It’s not about filling an hour on my schedule, it’s about helping people find the counseling experience that will help them to their path of healing and/or change.”
