What does a first session with you look like?

You can expect unconditional positive regard. I want to help you increase awareness and motivate you in your commitment to developing new thoughts, feelings and patterns. We can build an alliance and develop a collaborative plan toward your desired goals. I hope that in each session you develop insights and feel empowered to step into growth-promoting experiences.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

You have a unique story. I will meet you where you are. A specialized approach to treatment upon appropriate assessment may include a combination of cognitive, psychodynamic and humanistic methods. Psychotherapy will explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviors, and we will seek to improve your mental, emotional and relational health. I will use therapy techniques from psychodynamic, family systems, cognitive/behavioral, solution-focused, and crisis intervention.
