What does a first session with you look like?

We will spend time getting to know one another and figure out first if we are a good fit. Ultimately, the therapeutic relationship is the most important to make sure therapy will be the most effective. At the same time we get to know one another I will gather relevant information to get a better understanding of your trauma history, strengths, support systems, coping skills and needs. I use humor, metaphors and psychoeducation to help build understanding. Ultimately, I hope therapy with me is a safe space to grow, learn and heal.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Everyone is different, with a different trauma history and different stages in their progress, that is why I utilize an eclectic therapy approach. Based on your needs that day, we can utilize the following, or a combination of these therapeutic approaches: EFT (emotion focused therapy) Strength based therapy Trauma Focused Solution focused therapy Feminist theory ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)
