Sometimes people feel embarrassed or scared to share what they have been through. Maybe they think it's their fault it happened, or that they should be able to handle the problem on their own. I am extremely open and accepting, and I will not judge you. I am here to help you, not to hurt you. It may be hard to trust at first, especially if you have endured a lot of pain in your life, and have had many people let you down. That's okay: I'm very patient, and I realize everyone heals at a different pace. I want you to get the help you need, whether that is from me or from someone else. If you don't feel comfortable with me, I don't take it personally. My primary concern is for you to have a helpful, healing counseling experience. I want that for you.
