What does a first session with you look like?

As a LCSW I enjoy helping others recognize their strengths to make changes that improve overall daily functioning. My role is to listen, explore past experiences that impact coping today, teach new skills, challenge unhealthy thought patterns, and guide individuals to set goals to help better manage life. I strive to help clients identify their own ability to take back control of their life. I use the first session to allow my clients to share what led them to therapy. There is often a lot of stress and anxiety associated with the first session. I have a relaxed approach to this first session. I like to build a rapport during this session, review confidentiality, fees, scheduling, and any other logistics.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize the following therapeutic approaches. -Cognitive Behavior Therapy -Dialectical Behavior therapy -Mindfulness -Client Centered -Narrative Therapy
