What does a first session with you look like?

In our first session, I will provide informed consent. This is information that you need to be aware of when entering into a counseling relationship. It will also be an opportunity for you to ask me questions that you may have coming into the session. I will ask questions to learn more about what is bringing you into therapy, as well as your history. This information helps me to form a picture of what direction to go in. If at any point during the counseling process you have any questions or concerns about your progress, you can ask at any time. You are hiring me to help you! After we have worked together for a while, you can expect to see less and less of me because you will be improving. We will of course communicate about this as we progress, but my goal is to work myself out of a job!

What is your style/approach to therapy?

The methods I use most often are EMDR and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a form of treatment that helps you regain your life after trauma, as well as reduce anxiety, depression, stress, and to even process grief. In this therapy, we use eye movement or other forms of bilateral stimulation (tapping, sound, or tactile) as we process through past events and present triggers. People often feel less overwhelmed and better able to rationally judge a situation after the process is complete. People even feel a shift in how they view themselves. Mindfulness CBT is also a tool that I use. We can get through any single moment of our life, if we are willing to train our minds to do so.
