What does a first session with you look like?

As a therapist, I strive to create a casual and comfortable environment. Therapy should be a fun, positive experience for individuals and families. It takes courage to open up to someone. It is normal to have big feelings, especially if you're going through some life transition. It is also normal to feel lost in navigating those big emotions. Think of me as your guide as we learn to navigate the big emotions together. As for goals, let's start slow and small and allow them to evolve. Set specific, attainable, and measurable goals. Collaborate, collaborate, collaborate! After all, these are your goals. We need to keep these evolving and track progress to understand when to pivot and adjust.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Much of my work is rooted in Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Talk Therapy, Systems Theory, Psychodynamic Theory, Brief Psychotherapy, Client-Centered Therapy, and Mindfulness.
