Our first session tends to review some of your history- what brings you to make the leap of trust into therapy and what some of your goals might be. This is a great time for us to get to know each other and decide if we are a good fit. The therapist/client relationship is a vital relationship that must be built on a foundation of trust and comfortability as well as honesty and truth. Not every therapist and client can work together and that's okay! We will see if we both think our partnership would be helpful to continue and move forward with agreed-upon goals. During our sessions, we will work together on adding to your coping skills toolbox and sharpen the tools needed for you to develop a stronger sense of self and autonomy in the future.
I utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy (connecting your thoughts to your actions) as well as using existential and trauma therapy. While we get to know each other as therapist/client, I might have you complete some "assignments" between sessions as I use an integrative approach that will assist with your growth such as journaling, prompts, grounding exercises and mindfulness/meditation exercises.
