What does a first session with you look like?

In our first few sessions, my main goal is to build rapport. I want to get to know you and let you get to know me. Counseling isn't some mystical science. It's a process that evolves as people learn about each other. You probably counsel others every day without realizing it. After we have worked together for a while, you will notice I love to joke and laugh. It breaks the ice and makes communication more fluid. But you'll also notice I can be very serious, especially about core beliefs and perspectives that negatively alter your life. I'll seek common areas of interest to enhance communication. And I will encourage you to realize there are two pains in life: The pain of discipline and the pain of regret. I've experienced both. The pain of discipline is always the road to take!

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which essentially says "how you think determines how you feel and act", is my go-to therapeutic model. I focus on emotion regulation skills more than anything else, especially anger management. If you are willing to learn the ability to manage emotions via altering your thinking, your life is going to improve. Our emotions, if permitted to always get their own way, have the ability to totally destroy our lives while we blame others for the carnage. We have to learn to think our way through emotions by asking ourselves questions, such as: "Am I making a bigger deal out of this than I should? If I act on this emotion, what is the worst thing that can happen? Do I have all the facts or am I rushing to judgment?"
