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. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. As a woman who has experienced a difficult healing journey from her own past trauma and was able to learn to embrace her own authentic sexual, spiritual, and personal identity and created a life she loves, I am able to fully empathize with others experiencing anxiety about their identity and life with no judgment and provide a safe space for growth, healing, and change.
