Alex, why is psychotherapy important to you?
I often tell people, “You don’t know what you don’t know.” It illustrates the power that insight can have in our lives. Before change can occur we must first learn what is going on. I want to help people identify negative patterns in your life and provide tools to help replace them with new life-giving actions and transforming truths to bring about healing and restoration in their relationships.
What kinds of people do you feel are an especially good fit for therapy with you?
I love working with people who are motivated to change their lives. Couples therapy and therapy with youth/families are my passions.
How would you describe therapy with you?
I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for people to share, heal, forgive and discover new truths that get to the root of issues and bring about permanent transformation.
Sounds great! What’s one thing that you think is important for readers to know before they come to therapy?
I like to describe therapy as “work” because it takes intentional effort, vulnerability and persistence to bring about meaningful change in our lives. Let’s be honest, relationships are hard work! I believe that people can change and I want to instill that hope in every person I see in therapy.
Any last words for our readers?
I’d like to come alongside you on your journey to healing and restoration. Call me. I can help.
