Jed Thorpe - Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, board certified and EMDR Trained.
"Therapy starts with 2 things; connection and being genuine. Having been trained in many styles of therapy I've found that, for me, being honest and direct is the quickest way to establish a genuine connection. I believe that providing supportive and honest reflection at the appropriate time gives people the best opportunity for gaining awareness which can then be used to work through life struggles. Clients will often hear me say, 'do you want nice or honest'. Nice gives them the answer they want to hear (and have likely heard before) while honest gives them something new to think about. At the end of the day, therapy is all about giving people the option to think differently. Thinking first - then feeling - then behaving. My philosophy: You are not broken. People can change and many relationship can mend. Lastly, you are stronger than you realize and I'm not going to pretend you aren't."
Now, let's get to work."
