What does a first session with you look like?

Typically, the first few sessions (1-3) are more of a meet’n’greet. We get to know one another, and you begin to share your story and determine if I am a good fit for you as your clinician. I listen to your story and consider possible focal points for us to start our work together. After this, we’ll collaboratively determine your therapeutic goals and ways to gauge their progress. This gives our work direction. Over time we’ll periodically check in on and reevaluate your goals until we reach the point where counseling is no longer needed. Sometimes, it can be hard to hold on to the hope that things will get better and that we will heal from whatever storm life has thrown us. When this happens, I will be your hope-bearer. I will carry it for you until you feel able to hold onto hope again.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My approach is eclectic with strong incorporations from Systemic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), and Narrative Therapy, but is firmly rooted in Existential Therapy as a foundation. What this means is that I consider each person in the context of their relationships and internal/external influences (Systemic). I acknowledge the strong connection between thoughts, emotions, and behavior (CBT and EFT) and work to slow these reactions down to allow for increased awareness and to develop intentional responses to self, others, and life's circumstances. I firmly believe that power is in the perspective, so I'm intentional about understanding your story and the significance of its various events to you (Narrative and Existential). I often find that people react very logically when you understand their logic. Understanding the way you see the world, and helping you to see it in an empowering way is my overall aim. As Viktor E. Frankl once said, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” There is power in your ability to choose how you’ll approach life’s storms and how you’ll let it shape you. I strive to help you realize that power and in doing so, your own resilience.
