What does a first session with you look like?

In our sessions you will always feel heard, supported, and validated. There is no prescribed outline of how each session will go, I focus on the individual and what is needed most in the moment. You are the driver and I may not always have the exact directions, but we can map the course together even if we sometimes need to change directions.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I believe the most important part of therapy is the patient-therapist relationship--Fostering a sense of unconditional positive regard where you will never feel judged and always feel appreciated and validated. This is something that you may have missed out on in earlier relationships that have influenced how you interact with the world. By establishing that safe place, we can then get to work on improving communication and coping skills. I utilize and draw from several different therapeutic interventions and tailor them to meet specific needs of each individual. While my preference is process and insight-oriented therapy, a lot of the skills I draw from are informed by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).
