What is your style/approach to therapy?

To move forward in the most constructive way, and reestablish equilibrium, we will work together using CBT (cognitive behavior therapy,) my principle area of expertise. We will look at behaviors that aren’t working for you and you will replace them with behaviors that improve your daily life. I use active listening as an important tool to help me understand your feelings and turmoil – sometimes you may just need to vent. And as I follow you on your journey, I will employ the skills of my profession as you need them.

What does a first session with you look like?

I believe wholeheartedly in a holistic approach to therapy and foremost is the importance of self-care. You will learn how self-care enhances self-respect, and how important these two factors are for establishing a firm foundation for the new, improved you. And there will be homework assignments each week related to current goals. It’s all up to you: the harder you work, the greater your progress. You have to be “in it to win it.”
