What does a first session with you look like?

I will provide a quiet, contemplative and collaborative space for you to clarify your unique goals and values, and we'll discover what will be most helpful and effective for you to get the most from your therapy. As we continue to meet, I will check in often about how things are going and will always welcome your feedback. You will gain insight, increase self-compassion and learn specific coping skills to try out in real life. Sessions tend to flow organically from "where the client is at," and will usually focus on goals and preferences identified in our early meetings. I may begin a session with a brief mindfulness practice, assign homework such as journaling, making a gratitude list or trying out a new interpersonal behavior or self-care practice.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment that focuses on mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and emotion regulation skills to decrease unhealthy behaviors, improve relationships with self and others and problem-solving skills and find greater overall life satisfaction. There are 85 + DBT skills. I love teaching DBT and practice these skills in my own life! Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a mindfulness-based, cognitive-behavioral treatment proven to help individuals accept unwanted thoughts, emotions and physical sensations in the service of living our values. ACT skills challenge us to accept and at times even embrace fears and other unwanted emotional experiences using metaphor and cognitive-behavioral strategies.
