You need a licensed therapist who is qualified and makes you feel comfortable. After all, you’ll be discussing deeply personal issues with your therapist, so their personality and style must fit you and your needs. If you’re looking for a serious therapist to quote details about research and statistics, I may not be the person for you. I use research to guide my practice, but my sessions also include laughing, crying, and occasional swear words. If you want to know more, call me or schedule an appointment.
