In my work as a counselor I believe a good fit between therapist and client is vital to the counseling process. It is important to have someone skilled in your areas of concern and to have a good fit. Not every therapist is a good fit for every client. While I work well with most clients in my areas of expertise, I am not the best fit for everyone. Here is a list of other mental health professionals that I suggest.
