What does a first session with you look like?

Psychotherapy is a collaborative process between myself and the patient. My therapeutic approach provides support, guidance, and education, while the patient is an active participant in the process. We will work together to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs. Psychotherapy can be a challenging process, but it is also a rewarding one. I have seen my patients make significant progress in their mental health and their quality of life. If you are struggling with a mental health condition, I encourage you to consider seeking psychotherapy. Our working together can be a valuable tool for improving your mental health and your life. Here are some specific examples of how psychotherapy has helped my patients: A patient with depression was able to reduce his symptoms and begin to feel empowered and much more hopeful about his future life. A patient with anxiety was able to learn how to manage her anxiety and start to participate in social activities again while also experiencing greater success in her work. A patient with post-traumatic stress disorder was able to process his trauma and start to live a more normal life without continuing to endure overwhelming fear and sadness.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My foundation in training is with the Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment (CBT) model while incorporating a humanistic/eclectic approach. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented therapy that focuses on changing the way people think and behave. CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all interconnected, and that by changing one of these areas, we can also change the others. In our work together, we will identify negative or distorted thinking patterns that are contributing to their problems. Once these patterns have been identified, we will collaboratively develop more realistic and helpful ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. Here are a few of the specific CBT treatment techniques: Cognitive Restructuring Behavioral Activation Problem-Solving Skills Training
