What does a first session with you look like?

Clients can expect their sessions to first and foremost provide a safe container for them to reveal their thoughts, feelings, and hopes. Sessions follow a treatment plan, formed by collaboration, and consist of therapeutic dialogue and sometimes activities aimed at taking steps toward goals. Clients are active participants! Sometimes clients need to share their stories and challenges, and they want merely to be heard and understood. We will build on this sharing to not only create a strong alliance but also to take concrete steps toward relief, growth, healing, and solutions. I often assign small homework tasks that reinforce the work done in sessions.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Primarily, I use solution-focused therapy. This model is validating and strengths-based, and it is also future-minded. Using the clients' stated goals, each therapeutic conversation taps into clients' abilities and aspirations. For clients who are unable to visualize the kind of future that is possible for them, we first explore and engage in strengths-building as necessary. In addition, I employ other humanistic models that take into account the whole person, and I meet each client with unconditional positive regard. Sometimes the need arises to be strategic, and specific interventions are designed to help clients create real change for themselves.
