What does a first session with you look like?

In our sessions, you can expect us to talk about your expectations and reasons for seeking therapy. At each session, we will talk about how you’re feeling, what’s working, and whether you feel supported and understood. I have been described as having a calm, welcoming and non-judgemental approach by my colleagues and previous clients. As your therapist, I will serve as a guide, and provide structure and clinical feedback when appropriate to encourage your personal growth in therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

In therapy, I use a trauma-informed, recovery and strength-based approach to understand your life experiences and mental health needs. I use several techniques to assess the presenting problem, help you build stronger relationships, manage stress, and develop healthier coping skills. Based on your feedback, we will work together to adjust your treatment plan as you go.
