What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

I believe the key component of a therapeutic relationship is how comfortable a client feels with their therapist. This comfort level includes feeling that therapy is a safe place and the client is able to trust the therapist to provide compassion and empathy.

What does a first session with you look like?

The first session with me is a "get to know each other" session and beginning the biopsychosocial evaluation. This is the time where you also get to ask me questions and make sure that I am a "good-fit".

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My style/approach to therapy often feels very conversational. My approach is person-centered, you are more than your diagnosis. I want my clients to feel comfortable, much like talking to a close friend. You are the expert on you. Together we will work on expanding your strengths and help you to live your best life.
