How does collaboration with other providers play into your work?

Any person that comes to therapy tends to also come with their "village"! I love working with collaboratively with schools, doctors, caregivers, or anyone else involved in my client's "village". This is something I do based on the desires of the person I am working with, whether that means reaching out directly or brainstorming with the client on how to approach another provider themselves.

What does a first session with you look like?

In a first session, I like to get to know the person who is sitting in front of me, help them feel comfortable in the space, and set some goals together about what we want to work on together. If the person is a child or teenager, I usually invite their adults into the first part of the session to review expectations of all parties so we can all be in the same page.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

I can't say that I have a super comprehensive life philosophy, but I will say that a very important part of my life is that all people have value, are worthy of love, and have unique strengths that should be celebrated and enjoyed. In the therapy room, that is what I hope to portray to every person that walks in the door - they have value, worthy of love and have unique strengths regardless of why they came to therapy.
