What does a first session with you look like?

In your first session with me we will work on getting to know each other better. Through this session I will work to learn how you have been feeling and why you decided to seek counseling. We will also explore goals we can work towards together as well. You are the expert of your own story and I will always let you discuss what you feel is most important so that you can get the most out of our time together. I do assign homework assignments when I feel they are appropriate or needed. I take a caring, empathetic, and collaborative approach with my clients, discuss with them what they feel like is working best, and change course if need be.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I work with clients to find what methods will work best for them. I always start building our relationship together and help you feel comfortable with me first. Then I will use the evidence based treatments that have been proven to work best with your specific mental health concerns. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy techniques with clients. This is where we will discuss how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are linked, work on creating healthy coping skills, and help you learn mindfulness and emotional regulation techniques. I use solution focused brief therapy often as well to help clients build upon their strengths and help you find solutions to what you are facing. Other common techniques I used come from exposure, narrative, and couples therapy.
