What is therapy like with Dr. Cloyd?
 
People describe my therapeutic style as caring, accepting, supportive, collaborative and empowering.  I truly believe that only in a safe, supportive environment will you be able to work towards your best self.  My first goal will be to understand you and your experiences and determine if I am the right therapist to help you.  Finding a good match between therapist and client is a critical foundation for successful therapy.  If you don’t feel comfortable with me for any reason, I will work to help you find someone with whom you would feel comfortable.

Once we have determined that we are a good match our goal well be to develop an understanding of what your issues are.  We will then work to lay out some goals and create a roadmap for how you will achieve those goals.  Every session will include a focus upon your goals so you can make steady progress toward them.  If you feel at any point that we have moved away from your goals we will explore that issue and refocus.  Or, maybe you’ve developed a new understanding of yourself and would like to instead set different goals.  You are in the driver’s seat!  I have the skills to help navigate your path, but ultimately all decisions are left to you.  After all – it’s your life and your therapy!
