What is your style/approach to therapy?

Through my warm and non-judgmental approach, I can help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. We will talk about how your past has affected you. We will identify underlying beliefs and patterns that might be contributing to your current difficulties, and we will work on addressing and changing unhelpful beliefs and patterns. I will also help you learn strategies for coping with uncomfortable feelings and challenging situations. Therapy can also help you identify and change any relationship patterns that are no longer working for you and improve communication with the important people in your life.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

Success in therapy can look like: - Feeling happier, calmer, and more content. - Having stronger relationships and better social support. - Becoming more resilient and better at coping with life’s challenges. - Creating a more meaningful and balanced life based on who you are and what you want.

What does a first session with you look like?

The first step in starting therapy is an intake session. During this 75-minute session, we will talk about your story, and I will start to understand the challenges you are having. We will talk about your goals for therapy and your life. Together, we will develop a plan for treating your immediate concerns and achieving your long-term goals. If we both feel that I am the right therapist for you, we will schedule follow-up therapy sessions.
