Rhea R.. Adams, MFT, MS
I have been privileged to work as a helping professional for forty years. Twenty five years as a nurse and fifteen as a marriage, family therapist. My work as a therapist begins by creating a safe,warm trusting environment. Our relationship is an important factor in bringing about the changes you wish to accomplish. I become very involved in this process by closely listening to what is said, tone of voice, and body language. These behaviors are rich sources of information about feelings and attitudes not yet acknowledged but waiting to be brought to the surface and faced. My job as a therapist is to make that happen. I am involved in this relationship by sharing my observations and understandings of your process in a caring, non-judgmental manner. Your past may be touched on to help us understand the impact of that on the present. This becomes part of the foundation to make better choices for the present and future. My availability as a real person in the role of therapist is essential for the client to access feelings, understand the self and the impact on others. Healing and change can occur in this relationship resulting from the process. I want to give my clients support and understanding through an open, honest, two-way communication. I look forward to accompanying you on the journey of clarity and change.
There may be times between sessions, after hours, on Fridays and Saturdays that you might want to call me. It could be a time when life feels too much and coping mechanisms are a bit down. I am available via phone for support. And, if there is a need for a face to face session, during non regular hours, a session can be arranged.
