Change is hard, but beautiful. After 17 years of being in the same office practicing psychology, we are moving. Not only will we have a new location, but we also have a new practice. Psychology Houston was a concept to bring evidence-based treatment to Houston in a cohesive and direct way. All of us in the practice specialize in treating people with diverse backgrounds and issues utilizing state of the art treatment that has been proven to work in research studies. Treatment is effective, but conducted in a way that really focuses on the therapeutic relationship. In the end, it doesn’t matter what treatment you are doing, if your client does not feel safe, trust in the therapist, and comfortable in the relationship, the treatment will likely not work. So as I packed up my office yesterday I felt sad, but excited for this new beginning. Change is hard and creates many questions and fears about the unknown. As I teach my clients, I am focusing on embracing the unknown, going boldly into the future, curious about how things will unfold over the years to come. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this move and to all of my clients who have supported my practice over the years, to you all I am truly grateful.
