Joseph LeFevre, MA, MFT
Marriage and Family Therapist -
I acknowledge you for taking the first step to seek support for yourself. It takes courage to begin psychotherapy. Let me say a few words about how I work and then we’ll see if I might be a good fit for you.
While each person’s specific situation and concerns may vary (such as anxiety, job stresses, relationship problems, communication difficulties, parent- teen relationship issues, grief and loss, personal growth and development issues, marital concerns, etc.), we will identify the issues most important to YOU to be worked on, define measurable treatment goals so that we’ll know when we’ve accomplished them and our work is complete, and discover new choices you can make and actions you can take to address your current situation.
My clients tell me that what they appreciate most in our work together is my keen ability to help them identify their strengths and resources leading to solutions that were previously unrecognized, my straightforward down to earth approach (I do my best to avoid psychobabble!), my willingness to compassionately confront clients when needed, and my sense of humor about this human experience we call life.
Research has shown that most people can benefit from therapy. While therapy isn’t for everyone, nor is every therapist best for every client, the research also shows that the therapist-client “fit” or working relationship is one of the most important factors in successful treatment. If you’re beginning to feel like you and I might be a good fit, I encourage you to give me a call to discuss your needs and interests in seeking therapy and to schedule your first appointment.
I wish you all the best and look forward to speaking with you soon.
