I am so excited to announce that I finally have an office space to begin my private practice! And it's beautiful to boot!
This is such a lovely, warm, and inviting space, plus it has a great view of West LA!
I am so excited for you to see it, so, I have decided that for my Grand Opening I will be offering one free therapy session (after intake) during the month of June for new clients!
First off, I want to say that this is a great value! But most importantly, perhaps, is that this allows time for us to get to know each other and begin building therapeutic rapport. Building rapport with clients is one of the most important elements of the therapy process as it builds a trust bond between client and therapist, allowing for a successful healing process. In fact, some studies have shown that rapport between client and therapist, as well as the client's participation in the therapeutic relationship, is even more crucial to the healing process than that of the actual therapeutic interventions and techniques (Orlinsky, Grawe, and Parks, 1994). So, you can consider this free session as a way to improve outcomes over the course of your healing as you develop and grow in therapy.
Furthermore, this will also allow you, as the client, more time to determine whether or not my practice is a good fit for you. Just like in life, some people we will mesh well with and others, not so much. It's nothing personal, it's just personality, styles, and ways of relating. Not every therapist works well with every client, and vise versa, so choosing a therapist that you feel comfortable with will further help you along your journey.
Please call or message me and mention the Grand Opening Special so we can begin your healing process together.
