What is your style/approach to therapy?

Based upon your individual goals and life experiences, the focus of our work may be solution-based, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic or interpersonal. Often, a combination of multiple therapeutic approaches is effective.

What does a first session with you look like?

Although I have thoughts, ideas or areas that I believe are important to address, I will take my cues from you, during individual sessions, about what issues are important for you at the time. Clients often leave with a new perspective on dealing with their current challenges and an understanding of how they are connected with their way of dealing with challenges they have faced in the past.
