What is your style/approach to therapy?

My practice is centered around the individual and is designed to fit the personal style that is unique to you. Respectively, it is very eclectic and combines tools and methods from different schools of psychology. That being said, I utilize a great deal of CBT and DBT strategies, as well as Narrative and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy methods. Similarly, I put a lot of emphasis on Mindfulness techniques and incorporate features from Motivational Interviewing and Behavioral approaches. My practice encompasses all three levels of existence (mind, body & soul) and aims to address the root cause of the problems on hand, all the while facilitating desired changes all can see.

What does a first session with you look like?

I believe that a successful therapy experience is strongly related to the quality of the therapeutic relationship, which is also why I put a lot of emphasis on establishing rapport with prospective clients from the very beginning. For that reason, first sessions with me are meant to give you an opportunity to get a sneak peek of me; of my style, my approach and me as a person and to assess how comfortable you are with putting your trust in me. A strong foundation is what makes for a solid recovery that's long-lasting; first session is based on this idea and so is my practice.
