Often the circumstances that bring a person into therapy feel monumental or shameful. Other times the reasons for seeking therapy are unclear or hard to identify. Regardless of magnitude, life's struggles matter. They are real, and, because we are human, they are complicated! The relationship my patient and I build is the most important aspect determining the effectiveness of the therapy we do. When it feels restorative, shared, and caring, the relationship provides a uniquely valuable context in which we can take on struggles and uncertainties together, while we learn about individual needs, personal values, and difficulties.
