What does a first session with you look like?

I believe that much can be accomplished with just one session. Each session I offer is designed to help an individual or a couple learn about how their personality, temperament and life story impact and drive their cognitive, emotional and behavioral health. I use humor and evidenced based practices to assist each client with the development and use of effective and healthy coping, problem solving and communication skills. When we can embrace the uniqueness of who we are, then we can build a strategy that helps us address our needs and desires for a mentally well balanced life.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Using Narrative, Cognitive Behavioral, and Client-Center Therapy techniques and psychoeducation, I help individuals and couples identify and accept their personality traits, temperament characteristics, life story, wants and needs. Then, we craft new, future-focused narratives and begin the healing process by establishing effective boundaries, taking healthy risks, and building lasting connections that meet the client’s needs. I use humor, videos, podcasts, blog posts and other tools to help people learn the skills they need to improve the quality of their life and find true mental wellness.
