What does a first session with you look like?

In our initial session, I will focus on developing a safe and affirming relationship while gathering important information about your current circumstances and social and psychological history. By the end of that session, I want to be able to summarize your circumstances and offer recommendations about a way forward. You may expect me to ask many questions and listen carefully to your replies. A wise person once said, 'They don't care what you know until they know that you care.’ Coming to therapy can be hard. Once there it is essential for you to feel safe and respected. I create a safe space in which clients can openly discuss their dilemmas without fear of judgment. By the end of our first session, I want you to feel safe, respected, and hopeful.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use a solution-focused approach informed by each client's past and current life experiences. Our approach to therapy will vary depending on your problem, goals, strengths and weaknesses. My therapeutic approach includes the use of Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral, Person-Centered, and Somatic therapies. We will work to improve your well-being by increasing your self-awareness, identifying psychological needs, and learning new strategies in problem-solving. Most clients benefit from therapies that help them to appreciate the power of their self-talk, and its relationship with their physical health, and by learning new ways to cope with painful experiences which are stored both in the mind and the body. If requested, I will bridge traditional psychotherapy with spiritual awareness.
