What does a first session with you look like?

The benefit of working together is that you will have a safe, supportive relationship in which to feel understood, deepen your insights, work through challenging issues together, develop tools, build healthy relationships, and move from surviving to thriving. I look forward to helping you discover and living from your most authentic self.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I find that working from a psychodynamic treatment orientation helps us understand your internal emotional world as well as your external life by looking at how your early attachment style in childhood recreates painful relationship dynamics, shame-based choices due to less than optimal self worth, and unfulfilled dreams. We work together to change those unhealthy patterns by teaching you tools and healthier ways to relate to move from surviving to thriving. Clients find this approach extremely helpful. I also utilize CBT, DBT, and solution-focused tools when appropriate.
