How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

Therapy goals and objectives will be determined with you (the client) as the driver, and myself as the co-pilot. My process throughout therapy is very collaborative and client-centered. We will come up with goals together and work on all objectives weekly in session.

What does a first session with you look like?

Our first session will involve some information gathering, in order for me to understand the current concerns and themes that you would like to address in therapy. After that, we will form a plan to work through specific and attainable goals while working together.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

Therapy is for EVERYONE. Life does not leave any one of us untouched. Therapy does not mean there is anything wrong with you. Therapy does not mean you're "messed up" or "broken." This is a process of gaining insight, healing, and creating skills to help you cope with life's pressures and live with difficult memories.
