What does a first session with you look like?

Sessions will provide emotional support and validation - clients will have a safe and non-judgmental space to express their thoughts and emotions. We will work on improving coping strategies to manage stress, anxiety, depression, or any other conditions presented. In addition, we will focus on enhancing communication skills, increasing resilience, and developing long-term strategies for maintaining mental and emotional well-being. When needed, pharmacotherapy will be recommended.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Several screening and assessment tools can be used before or during sessions, including PHQ-9, GAD-7, CAGE, CRAFFT, and the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (CSSRS). Assessments will be done during the initial visit and then at periodic intervals to evaluate progress. I like to emphasize psychoeducation to assist clients in gaining insight into themselves and any issues they might be working on. I focus on using Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
