What does a first session with you look like?

I hope to provide you with the tools that you will need throughout the rest of your journey. My concept of therapy is not to guide clients through one specific issue, rather empower the client to see that they are capable of utilizing the tools if they commit to the process. Any therapeutic process relies on a commitment from the therapist to invest their skills and knowledge; however if the client is not invested in the change process it cannot work to their full advantage. That’s not to say that it will not work as every experience changes us, it just will not have the desired effect/results without working in tandem.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

As a clinician, while working within the substance abuse population, I noted a “missing piece” and client’s inability to identify lapses/relapses. This led to exploitation of trauma and the effects on our mental health. I am very trauma trauma/traumatic stress focused, taking certification classes as well as extensive continuing education classes. My focus is focusing on the patterns that keep us trapped in past “coping” behaviors that once protected us; however, may now be creating discomfort in our lives. Examples of these patterns include eating issues, workaholics, substance use/misuse, spending/gambling, unhealthy relationships, etc. Additionally, I work with depression, anxiety, women’s issues, life changes and similar issues.
