What does a first session with you look like?

In our first session, I allow my clients to do most of the talking. I do not ask endless questions or gather a full life-history, rather I allow you to tell me your story. I have found over the years that people just really want to share what is on their minds, especially during the initial session. I will help guide you in order for us to lay the foundation for future sessions while developing attainable treatment goals.

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

My approach is about finding the motivation behind our choices. Are we reacting to a situation based solely on an emotional reaction, and if so, what is driving that feeling? If however, a client is presenting with less situational symptoms, then perhaps choices become less about reacting and more about coping with signs our body is giving us that something is not right on the inside.

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I believe in a reality-based approach to therapy. While we must never negate our feelings, we must also never allow them to make decisions for us. There is always a solution to an issue we may be experiencing; however, perhaps it is not the one we were hoping for. I quite often hear myself saying - it is what it is - meaning we eventually need to accept reality in whatever form it comes in while developing healthy and effective coping skills to keep moving forward.

Work History

I began my journey in the field of mental health starting in 2007. My professional career has taken me from community-based mental health assisting the chronically ill population, assisting students and families both in the school and home setting(s), becoming a licensed consultant in behavioral health with a specialization in Autism & Intellectual Disabilities. At current, I work for a private practice delivering therapy services for those self-pay and privately insured clientele.
