Amy Kesner, PhD, LPC, LADC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Tulsa
If you find that you are stuck in a negative pattern of behavior or have thoughts that are affecting your life in a way that you feel non-productive or unhappy, then therapy could help. Change can be difficult, but often necessary. It is important to realize that change is only possible when an individual is truly motivated to make the effort to grow. Therapy is to provide a person with empathy and encouragement to understand how to change a negative pattern. The relationship between the client and therapist is very important so that each individual can feel comfortable to be open.
As a therapist, my responsibility is to find ways to motivate and encourage a person toward change when they have identified a particular behavior pattern that needs to change or evolve. When starting therapy it is important to have a specific goal and objectives that both the therapist and client have agreed upon.
I welcome your pet, within reason, to accompany you to your session if it is helpful in providing security and well being. Please inquire before attending your session.
