What does a first session with you look like?

After the first session we will move on to using interventions and exercises that the individual or couple will feel is helpful in their particular situation to get out of ruts that are influenced by their negative self-talk or to deal with behavior patterns that might be negatively affecting their relationships. I like to give clients tools they can put in their toolkit to use when needed in the future while they are managing their lives after therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use Gottman Couples’ Therapy that was developed after 43 years of research by John and Julie Gottman to look at the daily interactions of couples and their bids for connection. They believe that the daily acts of appreciation and fondness are the basis of a relationship making it strong or weak. I also use methods from Dr. David Burns Cognitive Behavioral Couples' Therapy which uses empathy, inquiry, verbal stroking, the disarming technique when criticized and assertiveness in expressing your feelings. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy with individuals to turn around irrational negative thoughts.
