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

Therapy goals are created in collaboration with clients and other providers identified by the client. I wholeheartedly believe that it is up to my clients to identify what they feel their needs are and it is my job to facilitate growth and exploration while providing psychoeducation, skills, and tools for my clients to take with them into their lives. All goals are set to be achievable in about 12 weeks from the start of sessions.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

The key component to the therapeutic relationship is trust. I trust my clients to come in week after week and do the hard work necessary to improve and they trust me to arrive prepared to give them my all to every session, receive them without judgment, and accept them for everything that they are and everything that they want to be.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

Therapy doesn't have to last forever! Some people find comfort in having a therapist that they see long term and that's wonderful but I also love short term or solution-focused therapy where we work on a specific challenge very quickly (typically 4-8 weekly sessions).
