What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality, Coping Skills, Depression, Eating Disorder, Grief / Loss, Life Transition, Relationships, Self Esteem, Stress, Trauma / PTSD and Women’s Issues.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

I know I thrive when I am connected to my community, but also to myself. Balancing life stressors by understanding our strengths and our networks is the best way to prepare ourselves for daily difficulties.
