What does a first session with you look like?

Our first session will provide us an opportunity to get to know one another a bit. I will ask some general intake questions and talk with you about what you hope to achieve during our work together. I also encourage you to ask me any questions you may have at this time as well.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am not your typical therapist I am real, honest, approachable and will not hesitate to let you know what I think. I believe that therapy should be a genuine experience focused on the individual needs of each client. Therapy shouldn't feel cold or forced. I combine CBT, DBT, and solution focused techniques coupled with real conversation to help my clients find realistic solutions to everyday struggles.
