What does a first session with you look like?

Therapy provides you with a unique opportunity to talk about life challenges in a safe, non-judgmental environment. During your first few sessions, you will be able to express concerns you may have about therapy and discuss your expectations for treatment. This is the time to be yourself, relax, and for us to get to know one another. The process of effective therapy is empowering, collaborative, and focused. You can change and heal by forming a trusting relationship with your therapist. In this phase, you will begin to uncover your needs by talking about your feelings and learning coping skills to address daily challenges in a new way. A common saying in therapy is, “if we can feel it, we can heal it.” Exploring feelings that may have fueled irrational beliefs, feelings, and behaviors in the past is important in achieving healing in therapy. Trusting your therapist and the therapeutic process can result in feeling understood and supported. Once this is achieved, healing can occur.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

CBT treatment usually involves efforts to change thinking patterns. These strategies might include: Learning to recognize one’s distortions in thinking that are creating problems, and then to reevaluate them in light of reality. Gaining a better understanding of the behavior and motivation of others. Using problem-solving skills to cope with difficult situations. Learning to develop a greater sense of confidence in one’s abilities. CBT treatment also usually involves efforts to change behavioral patterns. These strategies might include: Facing one’s fears instead of avoiding them. Using role-playing to prepare for potentially problematic interactions with others. Learning to calm one’s mind and relax one’s body. CBT emphasizes helping individuals learn to be their own therapists. Through exercises in the session as well as “homework” exercises outside of sessions, patients/clients are helped to develop coping skills, whereby they can learn to change their thinking, problematic emotions, and behavior.
