Therapy is a financial commitment. It is an investment in yourself and your ability to become more aware of the patterns in your life that are destructive. Most people invest a lot of time and resources into their education, career, home, and physical health. I truly believe that therapy is an act of self-care and is an investment into yourself. For couples living in Los Angeles, the average cost of divorce is upwards of $30,000 AND research shows that if you get divorced once, you are 67% more likely to get divorced in a second marriage, and 74% in a third marriage! I am a large advocate of working in the marriage that you already have to reestablish a bond.
Choosing a therapist is a very personal decision and because of the financial investment that is involved, I like to offer clients an initial consultation for free over the phone so that you can get a feel for my therapeutic style. Ask yourself: “Can I see myself feeling safe and comfortable with Daniella?” “Does it seem like Daniella really ‘gets’ me?”
