Hello everyone. Since this is our first blog post, I decided an introduction would be a nice way to start things off.
Why This Blog?
We felt it would be a nice addition to our site to add a blog. This is a place where our therapists can come and share stories, antecdotes, messages of encouragement, advice, helpful tips, or perhaps educate by explaining therapies, approaches, counseling, psychological concepts...you get the idea!
Share Your Thoughts
While our therapists write their contributions, we encourage you to join in the discussion. Comments are open to everyone, whether you are a therapist or not. So go ahead, let us know what you think and post a comment.
Please Be Civil
We decided to leave our comments unmoderated. What does this mean? Well it means that when you post a comment, it will go live, and we are acting in good faith that comments will be courteous and respectful of each other. We hope that we will not have to change to a moderated policy, because its extra work, and it's just not best for anyone. We all like to see our comments get posted right away, rather than waiting an unspecified amount of time, so it is my sincere hope that this will be a safe place for everyone.
