What does a first session with you look like?

As a client, you can expect a compassionate and non-judgmental approach from me. My goal is to create a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Together, we will work towards identifying and addressing the challenges that are impacting your life and preventing you from achieving your goals.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I integrate various evidence-based treatment methods and tools to best meet your needs. Drawing from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), managing and adapting practice (MAP), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TFCBT), I provide a comprehensive approach to therapy. This integrative approach allows us to tailor the therapy process to your specific goals and preferences.
