A letter of Introduction to My New Clients:
My name is Mr. Lynn T. Austrheim, but in our sessions I am going to be FRANK with you.
A revered teacher and mentor in Psychology once told me that 95% of Americans grow up with some degree of thinking, feeling, or behavior dysfunction. Most people, through no fault of their own, have no idea of their impairment. When they become my client, they can be very assured that I will be COMPLETELY FRANK with them, so they become more of the people they were born to be.
Many people are often dissatisfied with prior psychotherapy treatment when they tell me they did not learn very much. I will be FRANK with you, when I tell you that a lot of the methods in the psychotherapy business do not work very well. If you seek help for your challenges with me, know that I will be FRANK with you, and provide extensive education in addition to therapy to maximize your counseling experience.
I am FRANK with you when I tell you that I will be doing individual therapy and marriage therapy combined, to obtain the best outcomes for you, your spouse, and family.
If a child under 18 presents for therapy, I will be FRANK with you, when I insist that the whole family must come in for critical sessions for maximum positive results.
I am FRANK with you when I tell you, I am friendly, but ethics dictate that I cannot be your friend. I am a professional clinician devoted to helping people have better, successful and happier lives.
While I cannot guarantee success for you, I will be FRANK and tell you in saying that I will do everything within ethical boundaries, to help you reach your counseling goals.
