I appreciate how difficult it can be to ask a stranger for help. I believe in the integrity, dignity, and uniqueness of the indiviudal. Although our own truths provide the answers we need, sometimes we need another's reflection to find our best selves. Sometimes we need direction and guidance or alternatives. A good therapeutic alliance offers the possiblity of renewed productivity, remediation of what is most troublesome in your life, a healthy attitude, or appreciation of possiblities.
