Hey Hey! I'm Ray. I'm a lot of descriptive words so I'll throw those out there instead of credentials-- Divorcee. Single Mother of 3. Army combat veteran. Business Owner. Keynote Speaker. Reluctant Runner. Avid Rugby Player. Ratchet to some. Respected by most. I'm a bit unorthodox in my therapeutic approach. I believe a good relationship between the therapist and client is more important than textbook knowledge of treatment modalities. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the science of psychology. It's rather fascinating and I've done lots of training and consultation in treating trauma, grief, anxiety, and depression. But I've found over the last 10 years that it's really hard to get to the therapy techniques if the client doesn't trust me or the process. So when I hear my clients tell me now that I'm the "realest therapist" they've ever worked with, I take that as a huge compliment. It's a privilege to be invited into a person's innermost thoughts; I don't take that for granted. So join me and a few other folks, in a safe place, and share your shit so you can start to realize your shit show isn't so bad after all!
