Adult Therapy

Is Therapy Right For You?

Life isn’t always easy. There will come a time in all of our lives when we feel sad, alone, helpless, unfulfilled, or paralyzed by pain, fear, or grief. Therapy provides a time and place for processing our experience, exploring our feelings, and most importantly – confronting ourselves. Here at the office of Dr. Kelly Mothner, Ph.D, I understand the importance of being able to process your experiences and feelings without judgement. This is exactly what I provide for all of my clients – a safe space to explore those hard to confront issues and emotions with the goal of working towards a more solid, fulfilled, and balanced self.

The Importance Of A Good Match Between Therapist & Client

The client-therapist relationship provides the foundation for effective therapeutic work to occur. Therefore, my first priority when clients come to see me is to help them determine whether I am a good fit for them and their particular needs. My next step is to create a safe and comfortable environment where my clients can begin exploring those issues that have brought them into therapy.

Going beyond simply addressing the immediate symptoms, I help clients explore the underlying issues that are contributing to their current life struggles, emotional distress, or interpersonal problems. Together we look at relationship patterns and ways of thinking that have become a barrier to their happiness and well-being.

Ultimately, I help my clients develop a level of self-awareness and insight that enables them to be the person — partner, parent, boss, colleague, or friend — they want to be.
