What does a first session with you look like?

You can expect a laid back and non-judgemental space to explore your issues that will be met with compassion and the support you need to establish goals for your therapy. We usually spend the first session or two getting to know one another and developing a wholistic picture of what is troubling you. I believe an awareness of where and how problems arise are helpful as is exploring their impacts on your current functioning and relationships. I like to use all manner of tools to help you in this process from talking, written self reflection, sharing videos and resources - whatever might help you to reflect on your current situation, process your thoughts and feelings and then move toward healing and progress.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I believe different modalities of therapy are helpful for different types of problems. Some call this "evidence based treatment". For example - sometimes help for a particular issue may be best addressed with cognitive exercises while at other times, psychoeducational or somatic approaches are more helpful. Building on your strengths is also key.
