RISKS AND BENEFITS:
Counseling and psychotherapy are beneficial, but as with any treatment there are inherent risks. During counseling, you will have discussions about personal issues, which may bring to the surface uncomfortable emotions. Some of the possible benefits are improved personal relationships, reduced feelings of emotional distress, and specific problem solving. I cannot guarantee these benefits, however, it is my goal to work with you to attain your personal goals.
