What does a first session with you look like?

In my practice, clients can expect a non-judgmental and secure environment where they are free to delve into their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that have led them to seek therapy. While embarking on a collaborative journey the goal is to establish a tailored treatment plan that addresses your unique needs. Beyond the therapy sessions, I equip clients with practical tools to navigate their lives with greater ease. Having an understanding that personal growth and healing take time, I am dedicated to being there for my clients so that they feel heard, supported, and empowered. I prioritize creating a genuine connection and building therapeutic rapport based on trust and respect. Flexibility is another cornerstone of my practice; recognizing that each individual is unique and requires a personalized approach. I apply a variety of methods to suit the specific goals and preferences of my clients, ensuring that they feel relevant, meaningful, and applicable in their daily lives. As a therapist, placing great importance on active listening is an area of strength. This is done by being fully present in our sessions, and attentively listening to my client's concerns, experiences, and aspirations. Fostering an atmosphere of openness, validation, and encouragement, and providing the tools necessary for positive change is always the goal.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

As human beings, we each have our distinct qualities and experiences, which is why my firm belief in tailoring a treatment approach that meets the unique needs of each client is important. Things that may be effective for one person may not necessarily resonate with another. In addressing this diversity, using a range of therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Existential Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, and the Motivational Interviewing Approach, will help with achieving success in each client's therapy sessions. In my practice, combining these therapeutic modalities to create a comprehensive and tailored treatment plan that aligns with each client's unique circumstances is always the goal at hand. Implementing a professional yet down-to-earth approach, I aim to foster an atmosphere of collaboration, challenge clients’ perspectives at times, hold clients accountable, and empower clients to embark on their journey of growth and healing. Ultimately, these techniques lead to clients achieving their goals as they manifest the transformative changes they envision for their life.
