A relationship with a therapist can become a safe place in which to address concerns freely because your therapist is not invested in your life in the same way as friends and family. This gives clients room to discuss and
explore what is important to them more completely and empowers them to make the
necessary choices and adjustments in their lives. In addition to being a
