It Takes Courage To Seek Therapy
Dr. Jill Langer, Ph.D., LLC
Specialist in Women’s Wellness
Welcome. I’m pleased to introduce you to my web site and myself.
It takes courage to seek therapy and I commend you for doing so. In fact, given all we know about the effectiveness of psychotherapy, seeking therapy is not a sign of weakness but of wisdom. Research has consistently demonstrated that those who receive psychotherapy are better off than those who do not.
I am a compassionate and effective psychotherapist who will work closely with you to help you overcome the unique barriers and obstacles that have stopped you from reaching the happiness and potential you deserve in your life.
As a therapist, I highly value our working relationship and am invested in your personal growth. My clients describe me as warm, understanding, trustworthy, insightful, supportive, challenging, and skillful. They describe our work as challenging, rewarding, life-changing, and growth-enhancing.
I practice psychology as both an art and a science. I treat my clients with respect, understanding, and compassion while offering methods and coping skills that are proven effective.
