Francis Toal, Trainee (He/Him)
I am a Professional Clinical Counselor (PCC) trainee. There are times in our lives when we all struggle with fear and pain of one kind or another. Contacting a therapist can seem like a difficult thing to achieve. Whether we are struggling with acute trauma or simply feeling challenged by facets of everyday life, we all occasionally long for empathy and guidance. Loss, depression/anxiety, addiction, even normal life transitional issues can leave us feeling powerless, frightened and lonely. Often we hesitate to share these feelings with friends or loved ones for fear of being a burden or worse, being judged.
Therapy can provide a safe and nurturing environment where one can share fears and struggles without judgment, a supportive place to resolve and cope with life’s challenges. Having the courage to take on this challenge has the potential for healing, growth, inner peace and happiness. Give yourself that gift.
It is my goal to provide a respectful, empathic and nurturing environment in which my clients gain an understanding and appreciation of their strengths and abilities, and discover their potential for self-fulfillment.
