What does a first session with you look like?

I meet every client where they’re at. I also offer tools and techniques immediately depending on the issues at hand and review how one is managing the tools during the following sessions..I want each client to feel heard, understood and hopeful that they can learn to find peace with themselves by focusing on what they can control.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is one of my specialties to assist those with managing anxiety and depression. Learning to re-frame our negative internal narratives is key to improving one’s mental health and wellbeing. Mindfulness tools are also effective in helping to improve our lives, staying in the present moment as much as possible is key as well. Integrating spirituality for those who share the Christian faith can also be beneficial and used as a strength.
