What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize different approaches such as psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, motivational and existential to fully understand you as a person. My initial goal as a therapist is to provide a safe and nurturing space within which you can help me understand and appreciate what it is like being you. Together we can move towards you understanding yourself in new and creative ways as you develop the insight and skills to create positive change.

What does a first session with you look like?

As a therapist I have found that two very important goals, to understand you and for you to feel understood, to be most helpful and effective in fostering change.
