What does a first session with you look like?

My first sessions are like going to lunch with someone. You know the type of conversations you would have, the type of environment you would be in, and the type of food you eat will help the individual be engaging and feel safe.

Is there any research-based work you’ve done that you found particularly exciting, and how has that informed your practice today?

I am a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist with a heavy influence in Solution-Focused and Positive Therapy. The brain is an amazing organism, it helps is interpret the world, deal with stressors and traumas, and positive experiences and relationships with others. If one can change the mind-scape from a negative to a positive perspective, through a combination of positive talk and hopefulness, one can change the way they think about the world, hence change the way they feel and behavior.

If you could pick one movie or book that influenced your approach to therapy, what would it be and why?

I would say, "Where the Wild Things Are", by Maurice Sendak. This books exemplifies how having an imagination and hopefulness to see the word through a different lens as a child, leans towards great self-exploration. I find this to be true in therapy. As our childhoods mold us all aspects of are lives, therapy can provide support to a individual to use those childhood experiences to make positive change in one's life.
