How to know who and what is right for me?

“Finding the right therapist is like finding a good pair of jeans…
sometimes you may need to try on a few before you find the right fit.”

– Dallas Dralle, Infinite Mindcare Marriage & Family Therapist

Research shows that the therapeutic relationship is one of the strongest predictors of successful treatment. Certainly experience, training, credentials, and the therapist using an evidenced based approach is also important but you feeling comfortable with the therapist is what is most indicative of progress and success. Being able to be completely open and honest is what will get you the farthest in your therapy journey.

Qualities of a good therapeutic relationship:

  • Mutual trust, respect, and caring
  • General agreement on the goals and tasks of the therapy
  • Shared decision-making
  • Mutual engagement in “the work” of the treatment
  • The ability to talk about the “here-and-now” aspects of the relationship with each other
  • The freedom to share any negative emotional responses with each other
  • The ability to correct any problems or difficulties that may arise in the relationship

Please take a little time to look over our therapist’s bio’s and testimonials. If there is someone in particular you would like to work with, please indicate that on your intake packet. Most people who contact us do not know who they would like to work with, and/or the person they are requesting may have a longer waiting list. They rely on us to suggest who we think will best fit their needs; we are happy to do this.

If you are currently seeing one of our therapists and would like to make a change, please reach out to our administrative office to support you through the process.
