First Time for Therapy
If this is your first time coming to therapy, I offer a free phone consultation to ensure that I am a good fit for what you are looking for before coming to our beautiful and spacious office located in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Life is challenging and sometimes losing sight of what is most important to us ends up falling to the waist side, leaving us feeling frustrated and overwhelmed.
Taking charge of life challenges and endeavoring into uncharted territory, known as "going to therapy" for the first time may be daunting for some. There is always that moment of 'I can figure this out on my own!' And quite rightfully, I believe and know that is a possibility, although sometimes no matter how intelligent we are or how hard we try, the solutions tried are not working out like expected.
The dilemma with the distinction of 'I can figure this out on my own' is that therapists are not actually in the business of 'giving advice.'
We are in the business of assisting clients with creating he desired changes 'they wish to make' by collaboratively and systemically reorienting their resources and strengths to a whole new dimension of thought, creativity, and possibility. Essentially, you can think of therapy like advanced systemic brainstorming with a therapeutic and healing edge. The key to creating long term systemic change is making sure that your goals fit within your preferred lifestyle and worldview, so that taking ownership of your change is easy and fluid.
Often times our loved ones end up feeling insignificant as a result of our challenges and before you realize it, things are not in alignment with what you originally expected. Many of my clients have tried solution after solution before coming to therapy, but no matter what solutions they tried, a tangible resolution became less feasible.
The good news is that there is hope for a solution that fits for you, as therapy can be the lens that enables possibility and discovery to surface. As a skilled practitioner, it is my job to service your goals and collaboratively work alongside of you. I believe there is no hopeless scenario or challenge, as there are multiple ways of constructing reality as you know it today.
I am passionate about working with my clients collaboratively, so that long term sustainable change, hope, and happiness become the central pillar for which they continue to live out the rest of their lives. It is important to begin your therapeutic journey only when you are ready to commit to making a difference in your life.
