What does a first session with you look like?

A first session with me entails you giving me as much information about yourself. Remember that the more information you give me about what is distressing to you, the better I will be able to help you. We will go over a few rules about therapy and expectations. Then we will begin to work on any distressing issues that you have. Before the session is over, you may be given an assignment for reflection to share in your next session.

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

After you give a short history about yourself and issues that may be causing you distress, I will ask you to list what your expectations are. For example, maybe you want to be a better communicator or more assertive. Your expectations are your goals. I will help you make a list of goals with objectives (small steps to take) so that you can work towards being a better communicator or more assertive. Every couple of days or weeks, we will review the goals and objectives to remind you of what your re working towards. Those goals can always change whenever you wish. It is your therapy, and you are in charge.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

Making the decision to receive any form of mental health counseling can be taxing, however, the results of seeking treatment. are usually positive and rewarding. No one has to know that you are in treatment. This is your personal time to work on yourself. Treat this time as your mental spa day!

Work History

For over 20 years, I have worked in the mental health field as a therapist.  Never in a million years  did I ever think providing counseling to individuals, couples, families, and groups, would be the career to captivate my heart….but it is!  My specialties are working with clients who may be suffering from traumatic incidents, substance abuse, various forms of anxiety (PTSD, stress disorders), depression, and self-esteem.
