"Quality service requires going beyond the basics. That's why I'm committed to providing the things clients say are important - such as privacy, respect for their time, easy communication, and individualized attention. These are the things that clients value, and allow them to feel safe and comfortable."
About The OFFICE:
- Comfortable, non-clinical, confidential setting
- PRIVATE waiting room and additional exit options; you won't run into other clients of mine, or anyone elses.
- I operate without the support of a clinic, which helps assure your confidentiality and comfort - no one knows you're a client of mine unless you choose to tell them.
- The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.
- Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
- If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in insuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
- Research concludes that "the therapeutic alliance is more critical than the techniques a therapist employs or the drugs that may be prescribed.
- In other words, what seems to count most is the nature of the therapeutic relationship which is why a welcoming environment that provides comfort is very important to me.
Although a therapist's credentials are important, I believe one of the most important considerations in selecting a therapist is to locating someone you feel comfortable talking with. You can't be open with someone that you don't have a good "feeling" about.
