What does a first session with you look like?

Therapy can take many forms depending on individual goals. I incorporate education, space to explore experiences and feelings, and support to develop realistic plans to resolve past traumas, manage current stresses, and build a successful future. Together we'll develop a holistic wellness plan that builds on gradual successes.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize elements of mindfulness, Cognitive Therapy, Rational Living Therapy, Strategic Family Therapy, solution focused brief therapy, life coaching, and psycho-education. I am certified in Rational Living Therapy (Level I) and Affirmative Therapy for Transgender Communities and I am working toward certification in nutrition counseling.
