"Believe in the possibility of change, for within every challenge lies the seed of opportunity, and within every person lies the capacity for growth."

Hello, and welcome. I'm glad you're considering embarking on this journey towards healing, growth, and understanding. It's crucial to me that you find the right counselor or therapist to accompany you on this path.


You see, therapy isn't just about talking to someone; it's about establishing a meaningful connection with a professional who truly understands your unique experiences, challenges, and goals.


Finding the right fit is essential because it lays the foundation for trust, openness, and collaboration in your therapeutic relationship. When you feel comfortable and supported, you're better equipped to explore your emotions, confront obstacles, and make meaningful changes in your life. My priority is to ensure that you recognize that you have a voice and a choice and empress upon you the importance of finding a safe and nurturing environment where you can explore, grow, and ultimately, thrive.

Research therapist

Spend some time researching therapists in your area and find someone who specializes in treating your specific concerns or issues. Look for therapists with relevant experience, and a therapy approach that resonates with you.

Prepare what to say

Jot down some key points or questions you want to discuss during the call. This can help you stay focused and articulate your thoughts clearly when speaking to the therapist.

Check credentials

Verify the credentials and qualifications of potential therapists. Look for licensed professionals with relevant training and experience in treating your specific concerns or issues.

Reach out

Contact potential therapists to inquire about their availability, fees, and approach to therapy. Consider scheduling an initial consultation or phone call to ask questions and get a sense of their personality and how they work.

Consider therapy modalities

Explore different therapy modalities or approaches to find one that resonates with you. Some common modalities include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, and more.

Practice self-compassion

Recognize that it's normal to feel nervous or anxious about making the call. Practice self-compassion and remind yourself that seeking help is a courageous and important step towards taking care of your mental health.

Evaluate fit

Consider factors such as location, scheduling availability, cost, and insurance coverage when evaluating the fit of a therapist. Choose someone who can accommodate your practical needs as well as your emotional ones.

Trust your gut

Pay attention to how you feel during your interactions with potential therapists. Trust your instincts and choose someone with whom you feel comfortable, understood, and respected.
