What does a first session with you look like?

I let my clients take the lead in the therapy room, it's your therapy and you're the boss! If you don't know where to go or where to start, that is not a problem! If you know exactly what you want to work on, then we can get right to it. If you don't think you need therapy and someone else told you to go, then we can explore it together and I will give you a professional opinion. The majority of change from therapy takes place outside the therapy room. I don't give my clients homework very often, but I may suggest trying new responses, journaling, or just 'dipping your toe into a new experience. In other words, I won't try to push you into the deep end of the pool!

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am a person-centered emotion focused therapist that draws on many therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotion Focus individual Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Trauma Therapy, Art Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Brainspotting, Mindfulness, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and of course, talk therapy.
