What is your style/approach to therapy?

I believe in leading with compassion. My approach includes leveraging strengths, individualizing treatment, and exhibiting unconditional support. Everyone has a story and understanding that story with a holistic and non-judgmental approach is crucial in the helping process. Collaboration plays a vital role in the process as each individual is the expert of their own story. I put an emphasis on being adaptable to meet each individual where they are and tailoring each session to meet their unique needs and strengths. Approaches that I utilize: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Motivational Interviewing Solution Focused Therapy Mindfulness Strength-Based Person-Centered Approach

What does a first session with you look like?

The first session will be dedicated to getting to know you and identifying your needs and strengths. We will discuss what you would like from therapy, preferences, and your personal goals. I will create a safe place to help in processing difficult emotions and challenges that help gain insight, foster resilience, and explore ways to cope. I will be supportive and intentional about the tools we employ to promote acceptance, healing, hope, growth, and sustainable change. We will then develop an individualized treatment plan that will help you achieve your personal goals.
