What does a first session with you look like?

Our journey will begin with a thorough discussion of where you are and where you have been, so I can best understand you. From there we will examine your strengths and challenges, which will help with developing goals you would like to work towards in our time together. I believe change comes through support, empathy, understanding, and commitment. I will walk alongside you with these values, while helping you strengthen these internally. I believe in empowering you to the best of your ability.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

The therapeutic approach will be based on your challenges and goals, along with proven therapies/strategies, and your input. We will adapt the therapeutic approach to meet your needs as needed. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy), a proven therapeutic approach to address trauma and PTSD. EMDR is very beneficial to treat a myriad of other issues, and I have seen a lot of success in my practice. I also integrate other therapies such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), and mindfulness and body work into my sessions, as appropriate. I believe in using assessment tools to objectively monitor progress, and use tools such as the PHQ9 and GAD7 to track depression and anxiety.
