Someone  finally wrote what I want you to know about therapy!

 I wish I could somehow reach out to all the people who are thinking about counseling but have not made an appointment because they are nervous. Some are nervous because they have had not so great experiences with therapy, others are nervous because they don't know what to expect, and lots are nervous because they are afraid they will be judged. 

 When I came across this blog I was jumping up and down with joy. It describes what therapy IS and ISN'T about - it gives you some insight into what I am thinking about my clients and what you can expect. I hope it gives some clarity to all those thinking about coming to therapy - because in all honesty - therapy is awesome!
