Counseling and psychotherapy are terms that are often used interchangeably. A Licensed Psychotherapist and a Licensed Professional Counselor typically have a comparable educational and professional training background. I tend to prefer the word psychotherapy because it expresses a bit better the rich, complex and subtle processes that take place within the therapeutic work and relationship, and which are the essential factors of treatment.
If you’re considering therapy, I encourage you to take your time to find a therapist whose personality, training and life experience feel like a good fit for you. The information in these pages, along with the About page, will give you an idea of my professional background and working style.
