The therapeutic relationship is so important. We want to make sure you feel supported, cared for, heard, and respected. We're helping to model a healthy relationship. We also really love feedback, because this happens in healthy relationships too. If something is happening in a session and you don't like it, please tell us! We unfortunately can't read your mind, no matter how hard we try.

Would you feel comfortable doing this with your therapist? We hope so! We enjoy our time together and want you to make the most of your time in session.
