Thanks to shows like Hannibal, In Treatment, The Sopranos and many more, talk therapy is becoming less stigmatized than it once was. Reaching out to a counselor for the first time can feel strange; opening up about how your mind works, past memories that haunt you, and behaviors you have engaged in that you are less than proud of sounds embarrassing and painful. However, connecting with a professional who can help you with skills you need to correct your thinking patterns, deepen your relationships, and improve your mood can be the most life-altering experience someone can have.
In my office it’s like Vegas: what happens here, stays here. And you can count on that. HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) is United States legislation that provides data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information.
You can also guarantee that you will not be judged, and you have control when you are in sessions with me. I am here to help you reach whatever goal you want to reach – I do not have an agenda for your life. If you want to come here just to vent, great! If you want to come in and tackle the bad memories that you can’t stop thinking about, no problem! Therapy with me is whatever you want to make it.
