The effectiveness of therapy is influenced by a number of circumstances and may result in a referral to another therapist, agency or doctor. If you do not feel comfortable with me as your therapist please talk about it openly with me. We will either work it out or find someone more agreeable to you. A therapeutic method may not be well suited to your personality and is usually evident early in the therapy process. Some mental illnesses and mental health issues are better suited to other interventions or specialties such as psychiatry, inpatient/outpatient hospital programs or groups. Every effort will be made to make appropriate recommendations and referrals as needed.
