"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
- Carl Rogers
Welcome! My name is Sarah Maffei, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. I understand that change - whether this is a relationship, a job, patterns of behaviors, thoughts, life goals, etc. - can be both exciting and frightening. It isn't unusual for individuals to delay starting therapy due to the fear involved, as well as the overall discomfort that they anticipate. Some don't understand how they could benefit from therapy. Once engaged, some say they wish they would have started years earlier. Some start, and aren't ready, so they discontinue, only to return months or even years later. There isn't a "right" or "wrong" choice with this. You're ready when you're ready.
If you are interested in starting the process, and are unsure of where to start, I'd be more than happy to assist you in that process. Please call or email me for a brief phone consultation or to set up your initial appointment. I look forward to working with you.
