What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use a collaborative and structured evidence-based approach to treatment. Clients are actively involved in the treatment process and are expected to participate both in-session and practice techniques between sessions.

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

Testing is used at the beginning and throughout the treatment process to assess initial symptom as well as progress. We discuss changes on symptom scores to assess progress on a regular basis.

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

During the first session, after a comprehensive diagnostic interview, clients and I collaborate on setting therapeutic goals. After discussing potential treatment techniques for each of these goals, the client decides which he or she would like to focus first. Once we complete the first goal, we move on to working on another goal of the client's choosing.
