What does a first session with you look like?

As a client working with me, you can expect to take away a number of key insights and tools to help you manage your life's challenges more effectively. Here are a few things you can look forward to: Improved self-awareness: Through our discussions and activities, you'll gain deeper insights into your emotions, thought patterns, and behaviors. This heightened self-awareness is the first crucial step toward personal growth and change. Effective coping strategies: I will guide you to develop and utilize various strategies to manage stress, anxiety, and other negative emotions. Continuous growth and learning: Therapy is a journey, not a destination. As we navigate this path together, you can expect a continuous process of growth, learning, and self-discovery.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am not wedded to any one specific school of therapy. My approach to learning is to take what's useful and leave the rest. I have the same approach in my therapeutic style. I will incorporate any skill or tool available if it's helpful. Some of these tools include: EMDR for PTSD and grief work. Hypnosis for stress, anxiety, and sleep difficulties. Psychodynamic therapy for self-insight. Internal family systems and ego-state therapy for resolving inner conflict. I am a lifelong student and am committed to constant learning in the pursuit of better being able to help those I work with.
