What does a first session with you look like?

Our time will include exploring what led you to therapy (past or present) in a warm, compassion, non-judgmental, and safe space for you to “vent.” Together, we'll uncover and identify situations in a new, less frightening way, and develop better coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills to adjust your story and ultimately experience more self-compassion, confidence, acceptance, happiness, and peace in your life. I include creativity, personalized tools, homework to implement those tools, music, movement, and guided meditation. At times I am more informative based on research and at other times, I am more exploratory.
