What does a first session with you look like?

One of our biggest needs is to be both heard and understood. All too often others are not listening and therefore are unable to understand. In our sessions together I promise to Listen and try to understand what you are saying. If I misunderstand, you have permission to let me know and to help me better understand. Through this I will be able to encourage you and offer direction leading to solutions. This is a combination of both person centered and solution based therapy, helping you help yourself.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I believe the more knowledge and truth you have will help you make better decisions about your own life issues. In order to reach this goal I first listen and use interactive interviewing to guide me as a therapist in helping you. Some of the tools I often use have a CBT, or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy base. Through CBT you will evaluate your current coping skills and possibly create additional coping skills needed today. I also look at the whole person of Body, Mind and Spirit. Our mental health and behaviors are often a direct result of physical and or spiritual concerns. They all interrelate. Therefore, I do not believe we can fully treat one of these areas of our life without addressing the others. Thus I attempt to address the whole person of Body Mind and Spirit.
