What does a first session with you look like?

I draw from several frameworks. I provide tools and resources pertaining to attachment theory, distress tolerance, mindfulness skills, and committed action. I understand that life presents us with challenges, and sometimes we need subtle techniques to help our public selves. Likewise, we can determine practices and and resources to accommodate our private selves. The therapeutic alliance can foster profound collaboration to strengthen affect regulation, body-awareness, and patience to alleviate the impact of symptoms and move toward value-driven actions. We can discuss what you are thinking. We can notice how our relational patterns show up in our daily interactions. Then, we can adjust how to explore options for how to respond in your environmental and relational contexts.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I enjoy using eclectic therapy, pulling from different types of techniques to build strengths to work through stressful circumstance and use skills for relaxation, relationship effectiveness, and emotional regulation. This may be helpful when exploring one's life circumstances, purpose, and life mission. I enjoy using acceptance and commitment therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, attachment, and existential frameworks during the therapeutic process.
