What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

Aside from the social stigma associated with therapy, I believe some people fear the vulnerability of telling a stranger their problems. Individuals who have experienced trauma or deeply painful events often struggle to express their emotions for fear of reliving their pain. While the process of therapy can be difficult, confronting difficult memories and/or current stressors will lead to a sense of purpose, courage, and accomplishment.

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

Goals give direction to the therapeutic process and help individuals move in a focused direction. As a therapist, I will do my very best to collaborate with you to create therapeutic goals tailored just for you. Together, we would set up a step by step plan of what you hope to accomplish and experience during your therapy process.

What does a first session with you look like?

During our first session, we will most likely spend the first part of therapy getting to know one another and explore the reasons for you seeking therapy. Together we would talk through what has worked for you in the past and what hasn’t in order to get a better understanding of how best to help you.
