What does a first session with you look like?

After meeting in our initial session, we will discuss the presenting problem of what brought you into therapy. An assessment of your history will be completed to explore any past traumas, family dynamics and strengths/weaknesses. Sessions occur on a weekly basis in most cases, but this will be determined upon intake as we discuss your goals. You can expect to have a relaxed conversation that flows at your pace and is never pressured to move faster than you are ready.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use the treatment modalities of client-centered approach, solution focused therapy as well as cognitive behavioral therapy. Building a good trusting relationship initially is my main focus because without a good relationship it is difficult to explore "the tough stuff".
