Hi, I'm Dr. Nancy Small. It often takes courage for a person to reach out for help. I firmly believe that the fit between therapist and client must feel right to the client. So I encourage you to research your options until you find someone that you feel comfortable with. Therapy can be a life changing process for people. The process can be validating, supportive and a safe place to examine painful feelings. It can help you to understand, value and accept who you are. It is likely that you will learn new strategies to solve problems and to improve your existing relationships. I am a straight-forward person who will treat your concerns with empathy and thoughtfulness.
