What does a first session with you look like?

As we dive into therapy, you can expect to feel heard, validated, and empowered. Our time together is confidential, and what you share with me will remain between us. You can feel confident knowing that you have a safe space to express yourself without judgement. You can expect to work collaboratively with me as we explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. My goal is to help you gain insight into what's been holding you back and to develop practical strategies to help you move forward. Together, we'll set goals that are meaningful and achievable for you. Our therapy journey may involve exploring difficult emotions and challenging negative beliefs or patterns that are no longer serving you. But it can also be an opportunity for you to grow.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I draw from a range of evidence-based therapies to tailor our sessions to your unique needs and goals. Some of the modalities that I frequently use include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, Positive Psychology, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems, Strengths-based therapy, and Somatic Therapy.
