What does a first session with you look like?

Together we will achieve attainable goals with positive outcomes and provide the change you didn't believe was possible. Painful chronic feelings of hopelessness, despair and lack of purpose can lead us to feeling suicidal, angry, isolated, lonely, unseen and/or simply just - stuck. In therapy I will teach you coping strategies, and provide other tools and treatment that will allow you to feel more adjusted, in control, hopeful and 'unstuck.' We will unpack, make sense of, and problem solve allowing us to develop better insight, and growth. Self-reflection, insight and skill development can promote symptom relief, increase joy and will bring more meaning and purpose in your personal and professional life.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My theoretical orientation is integrative and evidence based. I incorporate TF-CBT (trauma focused cognitive behavior therapy) and MB-CBT Mindfulness-Based cognitive behavior therapy) techniques. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and certified in tele-health services. I am relational. I have a direct, warm and trusting relationship with my clients. Trust is the cornerstone. Always. I encourage, collaborate and engage with my client’s treatment plan with a 'team' approach. A team approach that helps facilitate and cultivate personal growth resulting in positive changes, maximizing treatment effectiveness.
