I strive to provide an effective clinical experience focused on mental health or substance abuse issues. Relationship dynamics can promote problems. Including partners or children can quicken the healing process. According to (Relationship, Health, and Marriage: 2005) less than half of the participants actually benefit. My job is to understand the problems, see potential solutions, and search for ways to help you make changes. Learning transferred from the therapy experience to "real life" means we were successful. "Clients often report the benefits of treatment endure and may continue to improve after therapy" (APA 2013).
Relational therapy is complex. It depends on "readiness". It is my responsibility to assess and to promote ways to strengthen it. Length of time together and severity of problems contributes to the outcome.
If you're looking for support and guidance with a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. Text and email exchanges can promote between session follow-ups and is encouraged.
