What does a first session with you look like?

I am a goal oriented therapist. We will use time in your first session to identify the goals that you are looking to accomplish by participating in therapy. Each future session will focus on moving you closer to the goal(s) that you identified. I consider us to be partners in this process; you are the expert on your life and I am the expert on the process. By combining our expertise I hope to customize each session around your individual needs and support you in developing healthy ways to accomplish your goals.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am trained in a variety of treatment approaches and I customize my approach based on the specific needs of my clients. I like to understand and explore the connections between thoughts, emotions, and actions which is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I like focus on core beliefs which have been shaped and developed over time and how this impacts the presenting issue. I am solution focused and goal oriented, I use treatment plans and goal setting to focus and structure therapy sessions. I also used a systems approach, I consider the external impact of the presenting issues and how we can enlist supports in order to accomplish goals and maintain progress.
