What does a first session with you look like?

During our first session we'll discuss the basics and important pieces of confidentiality and informed consent, but most of the session will be getting to know you - why you wanted to start therapy, what you hope to accomplish, what in your life has led to you the place you're at right in this moment. I will listen to you, ask questions to clarify and help me understand and give you the respect and validation you may not get anywhere else in your life. You'll take away a better understanding of yourself and how you can grow and you'll feel safe and heard.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I have an eclectic approach toward therapy that includes aspects of Person- Centered, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution Focused, Existential and Humanistic Therapy. This means that I approach you as a whole person - understanding you not just based on your problems or things you'd like to change but based on your strengths. I focus on helping you gain insight, perspective, solutions and ways to move beyond what's been holding you back. If helpful to you, I use worksheets to help with additional self-exploration between sessions and may recommend books or podcasts that pertain to our work together.
