What does a first session with you look like?

I use an integrative approach in my practice. During our first session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy, and then mutually discuss the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. Some clients want to talk about things from their past, whereas others want strategies to utilize right now - others want a blend of both. Regardless, we will work together to find the best fit for you.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I work with clients who are emotionally struggling during pregnancy, postpartum, fertility challenges, or early parenthood. During our first session, we complete a thorough intake in order for me to get to know you, and to collaboratively create a plan for helping you feel better. My ultimate goal is for you to feel heard, supported, and empowered in this process.
