What does a first session with you look like?

Building a relationship with each other takes time! With that, comes trust! We can go as fast or as slow as you like! We will establish what therapy is, my style and determines what possibilities you want to achieve. Along the way, we will take a quick look at what you have done to resolve your issue and possibly highlight any challenges or obstacles that can get in the way and begin the formulation of a plan to move forward. This generally is accomplished in a few sessions! As we progress, you can expect to receive an assignment in the form of a worksheet, a simple task to be accomplished, or a challenge to move forward!

What is your style/approach to therapy?

As a cognitive-behavioral therapist, I look at thoughts, feelings, and behavior in context of a problem or situation. Beyond talk therapy I sometimes use video, music and simple relaxation techniques. I want to make sure that I am rendering a service that achieves results. Periodically, I use a simple on-line tool to determine how counseling is working for you and takes only a few minutes to complete. Depending on your specific needs, I may use specialized assessments that will help us to understand the full nature of the problem. Special assessments are normally completed on your own time and brought to sessions for discussion.
