A Few Words about Flexibility... Due to my own neurodiverse processing, particular sociocultural alignments and outside committments, compatible ongoing therapeutic alliances tend to involve mutual flexibility regarding potential last-minute rescheduling &/or appointment errors.

Some clients require greater regimentation than how I work, and that is no fault of their own. Ultimately, there is no "one size fits all" therapist. The consultation will provide an opportunity to explore prospective client's clinical needs and assess for goodness of fit along parameters of treatment focus as well as individual requirements for structure and containment within the therapeutic alliance. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
