What does a first session with you look like?

I like to explain to clients that we work as a team. I want you to feel comfortable having sessions with me and know that you are making progress even when it's small progress. I feel it's important to provide feedback throughout sessions and help you along the way. It's not a one sided approach and throughout sessions we will be conversing as a team to help you see your healing process.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I combine client centered, cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma focused therapy, mindfulness, solution focused, and strengths based approaches to therapy. I often provide information and resources to my clients to give them tools to use outside of the therapy session as well. I tailor each session to what the client needs at that session. I do not come in with preplanned ideas on what we will discuss rather I want you to share with me what is needed each week.
