What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including Addiction, Anger, Anxiety, Behavioral Issues, Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Domestic Abuse, Grief / Loss, Men’s Issues, OCD / Obsessive-Compulsive, Sex Therapy, Sexual Abuse, Stress and Trauma / PTSD.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

I firmly believe that sometimes we are not the best person to be talking to when we talk to ourselves — therefore, it would be an honor to guide you to a more generous self-narrative, continued self-improvement, and increased self-worth.
