What does a first session with you look like?

In working with me you can expect someone who is present, actively listening and looking for connections to current problems and past issues. I am good at reading people and piecing issues together with common themes. I also believe strongly in empowering a person and positive mindset. I do not believe there is one “fix”, nor do I believe I can “fix” your issue. The power is within you, and only you can decide what works best for you. I do believe the past has a huge role in our future decisions and I will ask you about your past. I also believe the environment, cultural values/norms and your family system you grew up with, saw modeled and your current family system plays key roles in your decision-making and how you see the world. We have to work together and within your belief system. I may challenge your belief system, but I will always honor where you are coming from.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am very eclectic in my approach and the belief systems I draw from. I am strong in Family Systems Theory, believing your family and environment play a strong role in who you are and the decisions you make. I am also a realist, and believe in action, moving forward. I like creating a “game plan”, “goals”, and talking about future plans. At this time, I do not use physical homework, but I may ask you to think about connections made or observe and monitor various actions/situations that tend to repeat or cause concern or stress.
