What does a first session with you look like?

First sessions should really focus developing a relationship with one other. I am likely to ask a lot of questions about you, what you are looking for in therapy, and answering any questions or concerns you may have. We will also discuss expectations of therapy.

What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

Access to therapy is one of the biggest barriers for people seeking care. Therapy can be hard to afford, it can be tough to find a therapist that has availability and the right personality, and it can be stressful starting the therapy journey if you haven’t ever gone to talk to someone.

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I tend to be a very warm and inviting person. My therapy style is what I’ve causally referred to as “couch therapy.” I want people to feel welcome, respected, and heard. Just like someone might feel in their own living room, sitting on their couch.
