What does a first session with you look like?

It can be weird, awkward, or anxiety provoking to meet with a therapist for the first time. I will ask questions to get to know you and your situation. You can feel free to ask me questions as well. After I ask my questions, I’ll share with you only my thoughts and observations about what you’ve told me, so you always know what I’m thinking and to make sure I really understand. Then I’ll share with you my initial thoughts and plan for how we can work to get you feeling better.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a form of psychotherapy that combines cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy to form a more holistic approach. CBT teaches patients to recognize and challenge unhelpful or irrational thoughts that may influence their emotions and behaviors. The emphasis is on understanding the connection between thoughts, emotions, and actions, and developing a more balanced perspective and response. During sessions, patients can practice and hone new skills, as well as apply them outside of sessions through tracking or monitoring their thoughts and behaviors. I encourage patients to utilize worksheets to track their progress and quick guides to use in times of distress.
