How does talking to someone help?

I believe if an individual or a couple is looking for meaningful change, talking is not enough. One of the most important factors for change is the therapeutic relationship. I have a warm, relational approach that is trauma-informed, client-centered and experiential. The therapy I provide is evidence-based and informed by neuroscience, feminist psychology, and grounded in theories of family therapy. I also like to have clients pay attention to their body sensations in therapy, which gives clients insight into their feelings. Feelings help us connect with ourselves, with others, and help us in making decisions. If we only talk and do not focus on feelings, we are only using half of the brain to face the issues brought into therapy.
