She'll work with you to form a relationship where you can have a safe and healthy place to come to and want to come back to. She's open to meeting you where you're at mentally by promoting a private space in which she can be empathetic and nonjudgmental. All of this to say that she wants to give you a sense of acceptance, openness, and unconditional positive regard
