What does a first session with you look like?

My hope is that you will gain insight into yourself and others, as well as learn skills, develop a plan, and if necessary, heal wounds, so you can move forward with your life, work and relationship goals. I would also hope that you feel understood and accepted, free of judgment that you might feel elsewhere. I will interact with you, ask questions for you to consider, point out things that might be keeping you stuck and support you as you develop a plan to make the changes you want in your life.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use a holistic approach as I believe that all people are different, are at different stages with different skills, needs and wants. One size does not fit all so I work with each client to develop a plan that will work for him/her./they. I have used a psychodynamic approach believing that many things from our past impact our current situations. Understanding those influences can help you let go and learn a new way of relating to yourself and others in a manner that is more helpful in the present. I also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Expressive/Arts-based Therapy, as well as other modalities. I will work with you to develop your plan and what will work for you.
