In my years in practice, I have heard from many clients that they have struggled to find a good therapist. Many have said that they didn't feel understood or get interactive feedback in their previous experiences. I believe that the client/therapist relationship is a partnership. We will work together to help you get to the solutions that work for your life.

Jane Bennett-Elias Practice Description
Best Therapies is a group practice that has made inclusivity the mission. Many clients that we see have felt misunderstood or disenfranchised in other therapy experiences. At Best Therapies, every person is welcome and will be treated with dignity and respect. You may feel that your true, joyful self is hidden under layers of depression, anxiety, guilt or shame. Maybe you're trying to figure out how to achieve your dreams of living the life you were meant to live. Maybe you're trying to deal with being alone for the first time, or again. Or maybe you're trying to manage a relationship that has gotten very tense, or is along distance. You may have had a negative experience with therapy in the past. We're on your team and we are here to help.
