What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including ADHD, Anger, Behavioral Issues, Coping Skills, Relationships and Stress.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

I am here to help my client's explore feelings, improve quality of life, and strive towards their goals, while they remain feeling safe and heard.
