What does a first session with you look like?

After our first session (intake) when we discuss some of your history and presenting issues, it is my hope that subsequent sessions help incite thought and eventually, potential solutions, to address the challenges in your life. If relevant, I may ask you to work on some artistic or written expression or read recommended literature (e.g., related to communication styles, attachment styles, trauma, etc) between sessions that we will review when we meet again. I also hope that our sessions help to restore some sense, as well as some serenity, to your life. I will also teach you how to identify repressed emotions and unmet needs, understand and recognize symptoms of substance use, ADHD, PTSD, depression, and anxiety, utilize coping skills, and nurture creative expression.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a holistic and philosophical approach that integrates cognitive-behavioral therapy, attachment theory, psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness meditation, art, nature, and writing therapy for creative souls (and those looking to tap more into their creativity for emotional and therapeutic expression). Cognitive-behavioral therapy helps to restructure thought processes, including the recognition of repeated negative thought patterns that do not lead to positive outcomes in life. Psychodynamic therapy helps to understand how past relationship patterns (often from families of origin) and insecure/secure attachment styles affect our current level of functioning. Mindfulness and meditation help restore balance and improve overall life quality. Nature also offers many metaphors for living!
