What does a first session with you look like?

After the first session, we'll establish what you'd like to get out of therapy and a general starting goal, even if that goal is to figure out your therapy goal(s). You'll understand how perspective can affect behavior and how small changes can have a significant impact. I use a conversational, reflective style that guides clients to realize their power in making decisions, and offers insight into how to adapt when dealing with uncertainty and things we cannot control.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use a person-centered/strengths-based approach that prioritizes interventions based on clients' learning style. Interventions include dance/movement therapy, solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy skills, and cognitive behavioral therapy concepts as a starting point for ideas. We'll discuss what tools may be useful and how they can be modified to be effective.
