As a child I went to a psychoanalytically trained therapist who was very rigid in his role and how he treated me as a client. I am not saying that he wasn’t friendly but I never felt like he got animated enough to show that he was really on my side or to help me find ways to empower myself. The room he used for therapy, although loaded with toys and games, didn’t really feel overly inviting
When I decided to become a therapist, even though my parents had the right intentions, I made sure that my office and style of practice reflected the training I received and my personality.
The first thing you will notice when you walk into my actual office is the bright red micro-fiber couches, my surf board inspired cocktail table and decor lighting. Basically not the way you would expect a typical therapy office to be set up like!
It is my desire to make sure every client that walks through the door feels like they are in a living room that invites them to get comfortable, kick off their shoes and get into the challenge they came to resolve.
When I was in a group practice, the office manager remarked how often she heard the clients laughing from my office compared to what she heard from the others. Don’t get me wrong, my clients and I got into deep, emotional and heavy dialogue in our sessions but I also know when the appropriate time to use humor to lighten up the situation or to join with my clients from where they were at.
So what are you waiting for? Are you ready to move forward in life, tackle your challenges and set new goals? I promise therapy in our office won’t scare you and you just may live the life you always wanted for yourself.
