Whether this is the first time that you’re seeking out therapy or if you have done this before, the process can be overwhelming. But you should know that by being here you've taken such an important step forward in beginning to heal your pain and resolve your personal struggles. One of the unique things about the therapeutic relationship is its level of emotional intimacy. You will be sharing things that perhaps you have never shared with anyone before. But before you do, I think there are some things you will need to learn about me. I am so glad you're here, I hope you will find that we make a good fit, and I look forward to hearing from you.
