Licensed psychologists are trained both in conducting psychotherapy at the highest level of competency as well as reliance on and ability to interpret current research and standards of practice in the professional community.
In psychotherapy, there are different theoretical orientations and individual therapist styles. A treatment modality that works for one client may not necessarily work for another client. What might frustrate or upset one client may even help another.
Numerous studies in professional psychology have also repeatedly shown that the therapist-client match is one of the most significant factors in determining successful therapy outcomes. My hope is that, early on in the process, I would be able to answer any questions and explain how I work in a way that helps ensure a good therapist-client match.
