Description of service

Individual Therapy with an LPC/LMFT. This was for one and one half hours. Therapy hours are 50 minutes, so this was for 75 minutes.

Review of Service

This was for Individual Therapy. This Therapist is a Gestalt Therapist, so we did a lot of "Chair Work". The office is simple - just her desk and two chairs where we worked. There is also a small "Work Area" where one can lay down, if that is needed. I normally go in for three or four sessions to work on an issue and then take weeks/months/years off. This therapist and I like to get in, do the work, and then move on. She has a very gentle style, even when she is confronting my behavior. She keeps good notes and seems to review them, so that, even if it's been a year since I last saw her, she remembers where we where, so there is no need to repeat what has been said.


Normally you would not marry the first person you date, so why stay with the first Therapist you visit! Find someone that can help you and that you connect with. It's been proven by many studies, that the connection that one feels with their Therapist is the number one indicator of success. So don't accept anything but the best for you. Keep looking until you find the perfect Therapist for you. There are hundreds of different styles and schools of thought, so find the one that you find helpful!
