Dr. P is exceptionally compassionate, loving, and honest. She has helped my daughter and our family build and learn to cope with medical complexities that caused trauma.

She recognizes our unique situation and the tools she provides us are invaluable.

My daughter connected and felt comfortable after the initial meeting in December and we have been with Dr. P ever since.

I could go on and on about the wonderful Dr. P, she is so gifted and is absolutely a pleasure.

Define your goals. Think about what you would like to get out of counseling. It might be helpful to write a list of events, relationship issues, or feelings that you think are contributing to your distress

Be an active participant. This is your counseling experience, so be as active as you can in deciding how to use the time. Be honest with the counselor and give her or him feedback about how you see the sessions progressing.

Be patient with yourself. Growth takes time, effort, and patience. All of your coping skills, behavior patterns, and self-perceptions have been learned and reinforced over a long period of time, so change can be difficult and slow at times.

Follow your counselor's recommendations. Take the time between sessions to complete any activities suggested by your counselor. Counseling is intended to improve your life in the "real world," so making efforts to try out and practice new behaviors, approaches, or ways of thinking could be a crucial element to the success of your counseling experience..
