What does a first session with you look like?

Upon meeting, we will begin to build rapport and work through the issues you would like to address. I will challenge you to implement strategies. We will discuss ways to implement these strategies and you will feel that you are in control of your own path. The progress you make will feel natural and positive. You will have light bulb moments where you figure out how possible it is to reach your personal goals. On this journey, you will find an authentic practitioner who helps you to find your authentic self.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

During sessions I will utilize motivational interviewing, CBT, solution focused, narrative therapy, and person centered therapy in a conversation style. Many sessions will be an eclectic mix with a foundation of Motivational Interviewing. We will work on grounding exercises and focus on your experience in life to guide our direction.
