What does a first session with you look like?

When you complete a session with me, I intend for you to feel supported and understood, and to leave with a sense of the path forward, even if only for the day ahead. I want to share with you specific action steps that can lead to gradual and meaningful change in your life.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize a person-centered approach with strong emphasis in techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I hold a certification in Applied Behavior Analysis in addition to my therapy license.
