In numerous articles and studies, The American Psychological Association (APA) has reported that one of the most important determining aspects of a client’s success (or lack thereof) in psychotherapy is the therapeutic alliance, or the quality of the relationship between the client and the counselor. In fact, the APA states that it is “the therapy relationship that accounts for why clients improve (or fail to improve) as much as the particular treatment method.”
Because I have been both a client and a therapist, I both personally and professionally understand the importance of this fit. It is for this reason that I offer free consultations both over the phone and in person to anyone and everyone that has interest and curiosity about counseling.
