What does a first session with you look like?

I strive to create a welcoming environment where my clients feel comfortable delving into the reasons that have led them to seek counseling. In our very first session, I encourage clients to share as much information as they feel comfortable with during the intake process. The more details you provide, the fewer questions I need to ask, allowing you to release and express what you've been holding onto. During the initial sessions, my approach involves providing a space for clients to freely vent and share their experiences. I aim to gain a comprehensive understanding of your current coping strategies and stress levels. This phase allows us to gather valuable insights and lay the foundation for the work ahead. Once we have established a solid understanding of your unique circumstances, we can begin the real work of crafting a realistic strategy tailored specifically to you. I firmly believe that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. You possess valuable knowledge about your situation, and I view our collaboration as essential. Together, we can determine the approaches and techniques that will work best for your needs. Building on the information you have shared, we will carefully sift through the details, identifying patterns, strengths, and areas for growth. By working together, we will construct a personalized roadmap to help you achieve your goals.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am well-versed in a variety of therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Positive Psychology. Throughout my practice, I have consistently found value in building upon the strengths that each client brings into therapy. Rather than providing generic worksheets, I prefer to assign highly individualized homework that aligns with your specific needs and goals. This may involve tasks such as observing your thoughts, actions, and emotions in certain situations. In my approach, I prioritize client education, particularly in skills training areas like social skills and assertiveness. However, I understand that each person is unique, and what works for one individual may not work for another. Therefore, I tailor follow-up assignments and exercises to suit your particular circumstances, ensuring that they are meaningful and relevant to your personal growth and development. In our sessions, you can expect a collaborative and non-judgmental space where we can explore your concerns, challenges, and goals. I will actively listen to your experiences, provide empathetic support, and offer guidance when appropriate. Our therapeutic relationship will be built on trust, respect, and confidentiality, allowing you to feel safe and comfortable in sharing your thoughts and emotions.
