Determining therapy goals with clients is extremely individualized to their presenting needs. I work with the client to build rapport and gain understanding of their struggles. Once this has been worked on, I will discuss my thoughts with the client pertaining to possible goals and areas of struggle I may see. I will always ask the client for feedback and make sure the client understands the goals and works with me in creating the goals for themselves. I want my clients to feel heard and supported.
The first session with me typically consists of a review of limits of confidentiality, consent, and therapeutic expectations. After the review of the information I like to provide a safe and judgement free platform for clients to express their concerns with me and let me get to know them better. I provide support while really taking the time to listen to their needs and potential goals within their therapy journey. I also encourage clients to ask questions pertaining to my background or therapeutic approach for them to gain more insight into working with me. I encourage my clients to consistently provide feedback and let me know if something is or is not working for them within the therapeutic relationship in order to make any adjustments.
Something I wish people knew about the therapy experience is that it is okay and encouraged to discuss the relationship between clinician and client. Your therapist will be working with you regarding issues that you may never speak about to others, issues that are deeply personal and cause a great sense of vulnerability. The relationship you carry with your therapist should be a comfortable one and it may not always be a perfect match on your first try. Your openness and ability to be transparent and disclose things to your therapist will be the bases of your rapport and essentially your ability to make progress within session. So ongoing check-ins and feedback are important.

My work is dedicated to helping adolescents, individuals, and families dealing with issues that affect their mental health and well being due to experienced trauma. I developed an interest with working within this area as soon as I realized the immense need within the community. Formerly I have worked at centers that aided individuals who experienced domestic violence and sexual assault. It was rewarding to realize the difference one could make within the lives of others based on treatment and support. I transitioned to working with adolescents who were experiencing adverser childhood experiences to include negative sexual behaviors. This experience allowed me to gain knowledge and understanding for working with adolescents who exhibit behavioral issues, impulsivity, and oppositional issues. Most recently I continued my work within private practice working with dedicated, motivated, and goal driven adults and adolescents who experienced trauma, behavioral issues, depression, anxiety, grief, and other areas. Having clients seek services in order to make changes and work on their struggles has further enlightened my work and the ability to make a difference for those who are seeking to put in the work.
